Winnipeg in particular followed the trend of the West in the early 90’s. Casinos were mostly controlled by the government and the Crystal Casino, the first in Manitoba after its opening in 1990, was divided among other houses seven years later. Finally, in 1993, the largest casino in Canada was built, and Montreal’s casino still shines in its former glory. In the Montreal Casino, everything the heart desires is played on almost 50,000 square meters and six floors spread over three buildings. The 3,200 slot machines alone are an impressive number that few casinos in the world can match. The design of the building is particularly beautiful, as two of the three building sections are pavilions from Expo 67. In addition to the games, there are four restaurants, three bars, a cabaret and conference rooms.
