Casino nearest to Quebec and how to get there?

Will be staying at Hotel des Coutellier in QC for a whole week! Would like to do a bit of gambling if there is a convenient casino? How close is the closest one and best way to get there? Would a full day trip to include a bit of roaming, lunch, casino be possible? Are there "junket" like trips to include all available... bus? train?

In fact the nearest casino is in La Malbaie in the Charlevoix area north of Qc.

According to maps.google.com it will take you 2h14 mins to get there by highway 138.

If you want to do a day trip and have not visited Montreal so much then our casino there is a 3 hours drive from Qc. There is an excellent bus service from Qc by Orléans Express if you don't want to drive, it takes around 3h15 then. Departures every hour all day long from both cities. Departures are on the hour from Montreal and on the half hour from Qc. Once in Mtl there is the main Métro (subway) station just underneath the bus terminal and you are just one stop away + a short ride on a bus shuttle from the casino.

As for junkets, etc I will suggest that you contact directly the Société des Casinos (the governmnet monopoly that manages all casinos in the province) http://www.casinosduquebec.com/en/home

The closest casino would be in La Malbaie, in Charlevoix country, about 90 miles away, next to the Fairmont, Le Manior Richeleau. A full day trip is definitely possbile as the drive over along Route 138 is quite scenic.

There is no train junket, but I'm sure there are for buses, just not positive where. You might want to check with Tours Vieux Quebec, www.toursvieuxquebec.com, or check websites likebonjourquebec.com to see if they list any tours.

Enjoy!!
