With Montreal just down the road from Ottawa, I’ve made my way to the Bell Centre on several occasions and have it pencilled in as the best place to watch a sporting event of any hockey stadium I’ve attended (around 15 in the NHL). There just isn’t a bad seat in that building and they know how to put on a show. It also helps that Canadiens fans and Montreal fans in general are some of the most committed in the world.
The sports betting options that Montreal residents do have are good ones. My favourite online betting site, Sports Interaction, is licensed and regulated just 15 minutes outside of Montreal and the spokesperson for the site is Montreal’s own Georges St. Pierre. With this kind of celebrity endorsing the brand it’s no wonder that Montreal is one of the main markets for Sports Interaction and this results in great customer service for Montreal residents who decide to do their betting online.

Offline Sports Betting in Montreal
Offline sports betting is available in the form of Mise-o-jeu, which is a sports betting lottery offered by Loto Quebec. With Mise-o-jeu you are able to place wagers at your local convenience store by filling out a mise-o-jeu ticket. The problem with Mise-o-jeu is that the odds are quite a bit worse than what you can find at an online betting site, such as SportsInteraction.com. Learn more about mise-o-jeu on our dedicated mise-o-jeu information page where I compare the winnings from the same wager between mise-o-jeu and an online betting site.
Land Based Casino Sportsbooks in Montreal
The Montreal Casino (Casino de Montréal in French) is located at 1 Avenue du Casino on Notre Dame Island in Montreal. The Casinos is state of the art with a great poker room and plenty of table games, but unfortunately for sports bettors the Montreal Casino does not currently accept sports bets.
Montreal also has no horse racing track within the city, with Blue Bonnets Raceway closing back in 2009 after 137 years of operation.
There are no offline sportsbooks or racebooks in the Montreal region. If you’re a Montreal resident and looking to bet on sports or horses your best bet is signing up through one of the recommended sportsbooks I list above.
