Casino Montréal Installs ARcade by Moment Factory

Loto-Québec is upping entertainment levels at its Casino Montréal. This week, the Crown corporation announced that guests of the gaming destination can now enjoy the ARcade by Moment Factory gaming experience. The new offering provides players with a chance to move on an interactive floor and engage in friendly competition while also having fun.

ARcade was created from a combination of multimedia and video game technology. Each of the two-player areas has teams of a minimum of four players who choose from the six interactive games. There are several difficulty levels, making it a fast-paced game and allowing players to move as much as they wish to, combining for an exciting atmosphere while playing.

First of Its Kind Offering in Montreal

In order to install the game, the whole Pavillon du Québec’s first level was redesigned and the offering is an ideal group activity for friends or colleagues. The area also features space with over 20 exciting games, which also features a DJ several times a week. There is also a special menu and the entire level is devoted to a new offer without games of chance.

Kevin Taylor, Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of Casinos and Gaming Halls for the Crown corporation said a few words on the casino’s new asset. He said that the agency is pleased to welcome Moment Factory at the Montréal gaming destination and that it is now the first of its kind in the city and will surely bring tons of entertainment.

He continued by saying that ARcade will provide customers of the casino a chance to enjoy a different sort of entertainment, which will complement the site’s shows and restaurants. Lastly, Mr. Taylor shared that the new game is an original activity which is perfect for groups of people who are looking for a fun time unlike any other.

Jonathan St-Onge, General Manager – Signature Ticketed Experiences at Moment Factory said the game reflected the firm’s vision of entertainment, as it brings people together in the real world for a unique experience. He revealed that the concept was created in the company’s Montreal studio and it was now presented to the public for the first time.

Disclosing Q1 Numbers and Cancelling Casino Plans

In September 2023, Loto-Québec issued its fiscal report for the first quarter of the 2023-2024 year. In that time, the Crown corporation recorded total revenues of CA$711.2 million and a consolidated net income of CA$380.9 million. However, its lottery revenues produced CA$224.7M, which was a 12.4% or CA$31.9M decrease from the same quarter of last year.

But that was not all from the Crown in September as it announced that it would be abandoning its plans to launch a mini-casino at Taverne 1909 next to the Bell Centre in downtown Montreal. The Crown agency decided to cancel the project after it faced opposition from Montreal Public Health which published a 40-page report to express its discontent with the gaming hall.
