About Casino Du Lac-leamy, Gatineau

The Casino du Lac-Leamy (formerly the Casino de Hull) is a government-run casino in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada. The casino was opened on March 24, 1996, the third of a group of casinos built by the provincial government to raise funds. Ottawa, the larger city across the river, was also planning to build a casino in the early 1990s, but these plans were blocked by the provincial government. The Gatineau casino thus also serves Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. It is operated by Société des casinos du Québec a subsidiary of Loto-Québec. The casino provides the government with some $35 million per year in profit, employs more than 1,500 people and attracts more than three million visitors annually. The casino is built on a rocky precipice over what was once International Portland Cement Company quarry but is today Lac de la Carrière. This lake is home to a large fountain, whose jet is visible through much of the old Hull sector during the summer. To the east of the casino is Lac Leamy, from which it gets its name. Attached to the casino is a 349-room Hilton hotel. The casino also has an 1100-seat theatre that has become one of the region's main music venues. The casino is also home to several bars and restaurants. In the casino itself there are more than 1,800 slot machines and more than 65 tables including roulette, blackjack, baccarat, craps and Texas hold 'em poker. It is open 24/7.

  • The casino is ok....3 out of 5 stars. We went to the so called "club". My basement is bigger that that. Crowded, dated music.... No room to even stand, let alone dance. Stood in line half an hour for that??? 15$ admission.... They should pay YOU to be there. Left after less than 3 minutes with no refund. They publish a "dress code", which is nice, if only they would enforce it. Worst club I've ever been to my entire life!

  • One of the best trips I've been on in a long time! Everything in one convenient place, great views, great service! Just an awesome weekend overall.

  • This is a mighty impressive Casino for the Ottawa-Gatineau region. I'm not a big gambler, so I don't stay for long, but I find it fun and easy to pop in and drop a few bucks in the machines and play the games. There is plentiful free parking and easy access off the highway.

  • A. Great experience for a weekend night out. Enjoyed the live entertainment as I am not much of a gambler. I also enjoyed the complementary coffee and soft drinks.

  • Unsympathetic, unthoughtful, and unforgiving staff (for the most part). Security did not let me inside for smelling like marijuana, but apparently smelling like cigarettes is okay. Go figure. When I explained that to security they laughed to my face and pointed out the door. With my money still on a poker table (going for a 24h marathon session) I tried a different entrance which at a casino with cameras everywhere wouldn't fool anyone. At the next entrance I had the displeasure to meet the worst manager I have met in my life. Benoit, the manager showed how much of a brainless monkey he and most of his security are when he could not clearly, and logically explain why smelling like cigarettes is acceptable upon entry, but marijuana is not. "Yeah, but it's a different smell" won't cut it Benoit, quit your job red faced bully. I tried conversing with Benoit, but his high nose prevented him from properly addressing the situation. Benoit was not just carelessly demanding, but as rude as calling me a "prick" after taking out my phone while he took notes about me. I took a selfie with Benoit in the background after he called me a prick just to remember. I was compliant to give my ID and whatever, but forcing me out of the building without my money was beyond rude. Banning me for a month was just uncalled for the situation. You need better customer service. I hope Benoit gets better. On a positive note, the ladies behind the desk in the poker room are friendly and professional. The pit bosses could try being less intimidating and more neutral. Finally the dealers should not expect tips as often as they since most people are losing. An older dealer who has seen me play for a while basically indicated to other players with her body language how they should play against me when I was in a pot because I had not tipped her, ruining the game for me that night. On the other end of the spectrum is Antonious, the fastest and most professional dealer there, he should be promoted to Benoit's position. Other dealers and managers could learn a lot from his above neutral demeanor. Best regards, Moïse
