10 years of entertainment at our two gaming halls!

10 years of entertainment at our two gaming halls!

The history of our gaming halls

Loto-Québec’s gaming halls, formerly known as Ludoplex, opened their doors in 2007, on October 18 in Trois-Rivières and November 22, in Québec City. Video lottery terminals and other entertainment products were offered, including virtual golf and hockey, billiards, food services and a bar. With the arrival of blackjack, roulette, keno and slot machines, their focus has evolved over time and they now offer an exciting electronic gaming environment.

The gaming halls were built on the sites of two hyppodromes. Today, the only hippodrome that remains open is the one in Trois-Rivières. The Québec City gaming hall, which used to be located at ExpoCité, moved to the Fleur de Lys shopping centre in November 2014.

Their success can be attributed to the wide variety of games and promotions offered, as well as the high quality service provided their dedicated personnel.
