I've been there before, and thought it was a georgeous casino.

Why do you say it sucks?

PS .. 10 days and counting till Niagara Fallsview opens poker.

when the Montreal Casino first opened, there was a dress code... no sandals, no jeans, no shorts, shirt must have a colar, no running shoes... it was REALLY REALLY bad... people were getting turned away left and right... they finally relaxed on that, but in general the odds at the casino are the WORST in North America... they barely have any games either.. only recently have they been adding other games... sure it looks nice, but that's not why you're going there right? :)

Haven't been there in over three years - so I'll take your word for it.

Haven't they added games like 3 card poker or is it still mainly blackjack and roulette?

I think they did add 1 or 2 games, but it's still not that great in my opinion..

MIND you, it's a lot better than the reserve casino near Cornwall.. wow.. you would never think that that's a casino.. BUT it does have poker there which is cool

I heard it through friends that go to the casino a lot etc... I guess I can't say it's 100%, but it's pretty sure..

I am from MTL. The casino does suck. They also are not bringing in poker tables any time soon..... at all! There's some ridiculous laws here.

However, there are all types of underground poker clubs where there are great tourneys and great ring games. Nobody bothers these clubs because they are filling a void in the market and not competing against the Gov't and the Law recognizes that (we hope :lol: ).

Any how, if you are looking for action in Montreal, I can point you in the right direction, I host many of them... Post here and I'll let you know where to go

They are getting it by 2006.I was playing a tourney and one of the players said they have it at hull.I called and asked they said they get lots of calls for it,but its not at any of the Quebec casinos yet.Then she said to expect it by the end of the year.Its going to be good to have a game at any time.And they will have crazy tourneys.But it will not take me away from the local spots.

Good to hear... I cant wait! The casino is pretty nice right now, but I dont like playing the house.. odds aren't very good. Poker has much better odds since it is a skill game.. the sooner the better!!
