Gambling

There are mainly two places where you can gamble in Montreal : the Casino and the Montreal Hippodrome (horse races).

The Casino is on Ile Notre-Dame (in the Ile Ste-Hélène and Notre-Dame district) and is located in the old France pavillion of Expo 1967 (world expo). The Casino was expanded last year (1996) and there is now a new section in the old Quebec pavillion (the windows now have a shade of gold, they use to be silver). There are a lot of slot machines, some black jack tables, baccara and keno. A dress code is in effect : no old jeans, no leather jackets and no smelly sneakers but you definitely don't have to wear a toxedo, just "regular" clean clothes. There are also five restaurants, including Nuances (one of the best gastronomy restaurant in Montreal) and a cabaret where you can see live shows. By the way, the Casino is now open 24 hours a day for your gambling convenience. For more information, you can go to the Casino's web site.

The Blue Bonnets race track is where you can see (and bet) on horse races. It is located near the Namur metro station in the Côte-des-Neiges district). For more information, you can go to the Blue Bonnets' web site.

There are also off track betting places (called Hippo-clubs) and video-poker machines (or other video gambling games) at different bars around town (in fact, when you see a bar with a sign saying "casino", it usually means it has a couple of video-poker machine, it's not really a casino).
