About us

About us

Loto-Québec was introduced in 1969 to regulate gambling and keep it out of the hands of illegal gambling operators and organized crime.

As a result, we’ve been providing the people of Québec with experiences that entertain and inspire them to dream big for over 50 years.

And because Quebecers’ individual and collective well-being is at the heart of all that we do, we work to ensure that our business is conducted in a socially responsible manner and that we have a positive impact on communities across Québec.

100% of profits go back to Québec—so when the people of Québec play, we all win!
