Sports Betting in Quebec & Lotteries

Many people consider Quebec and Montreal to be Canada’s party capital, similar to Las Vegas in the United States. Quebec is located next to Ontario and four U.S. States. It is also the second-largest provincial in Canada. Quebec is the only province with French as its official language. This has led to a unique way for Quebec to run their province, including sports betting.

In Quebec, Loto-Quebec, a provincial lottery, regulates and operates sports betting. Mise-O-Jeu, Quebec’s sports betting product, is very similar to Pro-Line (which can be found in Ontario and the Atlantic provinces).

Mise-O-Jeu faces the same challenges as any other Canadian sports betting product. The Canadian Criminal Code prohibits single-game wagers. Canadians appreciate that some sports betting is better than none – even though it isn’t the only option.

There are more than 8 million Quebecers, which means that there are many sports fans. It also has the home of several professional teams, such as the Montreal Canadiens, Montreal Impact, and the MLS’s resident CFL team, the Montreal Alouettes.

Quebec Sports Betting Laws

Online sportsbooks offer a better product than any product available in Canada. However, many people avoid betting on offshore sportsbooks as they believe it is illegal. It is not illegal to bet offshore from Quebec, Canada or any other country. Only one mention is made in the law about operating your own sportsbook within Canada or Quebec.

Quebec Sports Betting Venues

Sports betting is legal in all casinos. Offline sports betting is available at all corners of the street. Although Quebec does not have any sportsbooks, this would be an excellent addition to their vast casino market.

There are thousands of VLTs at four casinos, including Casino de Charlevoix and Casino de Mont-Tremblant.

Quebec Casino and Poker

Loto-Quebec operates four land-based casinos in Quebec: Casino du Montreal and Casino du Lac-Leamy, Gatineau and Casino de Mont-Tremblant. They are located east of Quebec City.

Out of the gaming halls that the corporation has in Quebec City and Trois Rivieres, there are an estimated 11,410 VLTs (also known as video poker machines) at private bars in the province.

Each Loto-Quebec casino has a poker room. provides an online selection of video slots, electronic tables games, and video poker. You can also purchase tickets online for popular lotteries like Lotto Max or Lotto 649.
