Experience Vegas at Casino Lac Leamy
by Julia from Little Miss Ottawa
Head to Casino Lac Leamy until March 3rd to experience their new theme, “Vegas”. Step right in to discover the thrills and excitement of an authentic Vegas experience. I went to Vegas a few years ago and Casino Lac Leamy does a great job bringing an authentic Vegas atmosphere to life under one roof. Here’s everything you need to do while you’re there:
See A Vegas-Style Performance
See a Vegas performance as soon as you walk in! You’ll see dancers performing to classic showtunes in sync and in costume. What a great way to start your night! I loved seeing all the routines to the different songs. I felt like I was in Vegas as soon as I walked in.
Try A Game Of Craps
You haven’t experienced Vegas until you’ve played a game of craps. Roll the die and see if you’re lucky! Discover the game of craps from Thursday-Saturday from 7pm-1am at the main entrance. First time playing? Not to worry, the friendly staff will walk you through it. My first time playing craps was in Vegas so I was very excited to see this game available.
Get A Photo To Prove You Were There
Head to the photobooth at the entrance for a Vegas-style photoshoot. They’ll print out a photo for you and your friends on the spot to take with you.
Eat Like A King At Banco Bistro
Sink your teeth into the decadent menu they’ve concocted. Everything was so delicious and a must-try. Order a bunch of plates and share with your friends. On the menu:
King of All Burgers: a patty and jalapeno poppers between grilled cheese sandwiches and topped with onion rings:
All-In Poutine: classic poutine topped with mushrooms, smoked meat and onion rings.
Fabulous Surf n’ Turf: steak and lobster tail
Vegas Style Platter: cheese sticks, jalapeno poppers, chicken wings and nachos
Extravaganza Cake: decadent chocolate cake with ice cream
Get Married At Their Vegas Chapel
Roll a die and see who you marry some fun characters like a mermaid, Darth Vader, pirate, wrestler.! Snap a photo and you’ll have a ring to bring with you. You can visit the chapel on Fridays and Saturdays from 8pm-1am, make sure to get a picture in their photo booth while you’re there. It was entertaining to watch my friend walk down the aisle to a mermaid, a very unique and entertaining experience! Below is a wedding I witnessed, I had to snap a photo of this moment.
Enjoy A Fish Bullll At Bar 7
Sip on a cool blue Fish Bull at Bar 7 while the band plays your favourite songs. They’ve created the perfect cocktail that you need to try. It includes vodka or white rum, blue curaçao, melon or peach liqueur, pineapple juice and yellow edition red bull. You’ll find this bar in the middle of the casino and the perfect spot to dance the night away.
Try Your Luck At The Zone
This interactive gaming area lets you choose from multiple games at the screen in front of you! That means you can play roulette and your friend plays black jack right beside you! The upbeat music and hosts will have you feeling the high energy of this area. This is my favourite place to play at the casino. I love the high energy atmosphere and that me and my friends can play different games but still be beside each other. There’s no pressure because it’s all on the computer in front of you.
