Casino Privilèges Club Rules and Conditions update

Changes to the Casino Privilèges Club Rules and Conditions

An amendment to the Rules respecting conditions governing admission of the public, maintenance of public order and safety of persons in State casinos, which are set out by the Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux, has led us to introduce a new measure that prohibits certain people from entering our establishments. This additional security measure supports the many other initiatives already in place to prevent money laundering and enhance the security of our premises, and is consistent with Loto-Québec’s general integrity guidelines.

 

Changes to the Casino Privilèges Club Rules and Conditions

As part of the application of this new measure, some conditions of the Casino Privilèges Club must be changed. Under the new rule set out in Section 13 of the Casino Privilèges Club Rules and Conditions, Loto-Québec can, without notice, terminate the Casino Privilèges membership status, revoke the membership card, and cancel the Privilèges Points and Casino Status Points balances of anyone who has been convicted of any of the criminal offences set out in paragraphs 3.1 and 3.2 of Section 3 of the Rules respecting conditions governing admission of the public, maintenance of public order and safety of persons in State casinos (more details below). Loto-Québec can also refuse to issue a Casino Privilèges membership card for these same reasons.

 

New rules governing admission to our establishments

As previously mentioned, the new measure arising from the amendment to Rules respecting conditions governing admission of the public, maintenance of public order and safety of persons in State casinos aims to prohibit access to the casinos and gaming halls by anyone who, in the past five years, has been convicted of a criminal offence forwhich they have not received a pardon, including laundering proceeds of crime, the possession of property obtained by crime, criminal interest rates, forgery and offences resembling forgery, fraudulent transactions, drug trafficking, theft, or any criminal offence of such a nature as to interfere with the integrity of State casino activities or undermine public trust in the integrity of such activities.

The new rules governing admission to our establishments are now in effect.

The Rules respecting conditions governing admission of the public, maintenance of public order and safety of persons in State casinos are available here.

The Casino Privilèges Club Rules and Conditions are also available here.

As always, the safety and well-being of our members is a top priority.
