The Casino du Lac-Leamy was built on an exceptional site in a former quarry at the edge of Leamy lake. It was inaugurated on March 24, 1996, as the Casino de Hull.
In 2001, the SCQ launched a major $210 million expansion project with the aim of expanding the Casino, building a 350-room luxury hotel (the Hilton Lac Leamy), a conference centre and a performance hall. The Hilton Lac-Leamy hotel and Le Théâtre du Casino opened their doors in the fall of 2001.

Scheduled to be unveiled in January 2015, this make-over will include a new central bar and nightclub, a renovated the High Limits lounge and main entrance hall, as well as the addition of a multimedia structure.
