Casino Lac Leamy

Casino Lac Leamy is just a few kilometers from Ottawa’s Parliament Hill in downtown Gatineau Quebec. It is a modern and spacious hotel and gaming complex containing, among other attractions, a restaurant that was voted “Best Restaurant” among the 240 Hilton Hotels throughout North America.

The complex also offers the visitor top notch accommodations for an overnight stay.

The Theatre Du Casino provides world-class entertainment in matinee and evening shows.

The site offers an ultra-modern convention center, a marina adjoining the casino (with free boat dockage for casino visitors) with a connection to the Ottawa River for those travelling by boat, and, of course, let’s not forget the gambling.

In a smoke-free environment, more than 60 gambling tables offer the player Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Baccarat and Keno, to name just a few of the games of chance offered.

Do you prefer slot machines? How about an offering of more than 1,800 of them in one location?

When crossing the bridge, be aware. My welcome to the Province of Quebec when I crossed this bridge a while ago was a speed trap run by a Quebec Provincial policeman. The speed limit on the bridge is 70 KPH (approx. 43 MPH) so be careful that you are not one of those caught speeding when crossing the bridge into Quebec.

It is only two kilometres or so along this highway after the bridge (autoroute de la Gatineau) to the turn off to Casino Lac Leamy, and it is very well marked.

If you prefer to take transit, Casino Lac Leamy has partnered with many of the hotels in greater Ottawa, offering a shuttle bus to and from these hotels to the casino. Some hotels offer the shuttle at no cost, for others a fare is charged.
