Loto-Québec, a provincial gambling operator of Canada, will shut down several of its land-based gaming venues with Québec, after the number of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) cases in the province went up.
Starting midnight of October 1, the Salon de jeux Québec and Casino de Montreal will have to be shut down until October 28. Lottery sales, however, are not affected by the new guidelines and will remain under the operator’s retail network.
Video Lottery Machines (VLTs), network bingo, and Kinzo located in the metropolitan community of Montreal, Capitale-Nationale, and Chaudière-Applaches region (save for Portneuf and Charlevoix) will also remain closed for the time being.
Kinzo and VLTs activities will remain open in other regions, whereas network bingo will only be offered in the evenings.
All other gaming venues of Loto-Québec, including the Casino du Lac-Leamy, Casino de Charlevoix, the Salon de jeux de Troix-Rivières, the Casino de Mont-Tremblant, the Fairmont Le Manoir Richeliue, and the Hilton Lac-Leamy will remain open.
