Some enjoy the food, some enjoy the live entertainment, some love the games, some others the design, the staff, the music. The Casino de Montréal is definitely a place where everyone can find something he likes and enjoy the time spent there.
The largest casino in Canada, the Casino de Montréal was the largest casino in the world until January 2010, when it was surpassed by the Grand Lisboa, a new monumental complex in Macau, China.
The casino is located on the Isle de Notre Dame, the artificial island also home for the Canadian Grand Prix.

The colossal structure consists of three connected buildings. Two of these, the French Pavilion and the Quebec Pavilion, were built for Expo 67.

The Casino de Montréal is also known for a fact happened in April 1994, when Daniel Corriveau managed to win CAD600,000 playing Keno. He guessed for three consecutive times 19 of the 20 numbers drawn.
He said that he used complex calculations based on the theory of chaos, but after further investigation it was found that the payout was made possible by the fact that the generators of pseudo-random numbers used by the keno machines were reset every morning with the result of producing each day the same sequence of numbers.
The winnings, however, were eventually paid out, as it was found that Corriveau had not taken advantage of the connivance of any casino employee and therefore didn’t commit any illegality. Lucky him!
