Loto-Québec Finds Solution to Casino Crime Wave
Loto-Québec has released a report on the investigation into the Casino de Montréal. The report will provide the authorities with some guidelines and strategies on how to deal with possible future criminal activities at the gaming venues.
Loto-Québec has completed an official audit of its casino. The government will implement some of the recommendations. It will ban high-risk players and introduce more thorough background checks. The province has also agreed to improve information-sharing between the Crown agency and the police department. According to the report, dealers did not feel obligated to allow a suspicious individual to win due to their links to organized crime groups.
Loto-Québec had a difficult year as the Crown corporation was severely affected by the unprecedented situation. Its casino properties in the province were ceased from operations for a long time. For the last fiscal year, the corporation managed to accumulate CA$457.6 million in revenue.
Loto-Québec is relaunching its casinos. Salon de jeux de Trois-Rivières will restart on June 14, 2021. Casino de Charlevoix, Casino of Mont-Tremblant and Salon of Jeux De Québec will start on May 21, 21st 2021, and Casino du Quebec will be reopening on July 21.
