Table games with dealers
The Casino in Mont-Tremblant will also make fans of traditional games very happy, as they provide 16 game tables, that feature the most popular card games and roulette.
Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games, and also one of the most thrilling games in the casinos.

The game tables are also available to beginners, and the dealers will be happy to introduce you to the rules and strategies of the game.
Once you have taken a seat at one of the blackjack tables at the casino, you will have to play a minimum bet of $10 per hand. Depending on the value of your hand, you will also be able to double your bet, or use other options.
Baccarat is not very common in the casinos in Europe, but it is one of the most popular games in the Canadian casinos. Although it is a card game, Baccarat does not have a direct confrontation between the players at the table, instead the aim of the game is to predict which hand is closer to 9 points, either the hand of the bank or that of the player.
The Baccarat tables at the casino can accommodate between 1 to 7 players, and the minimum bet starts from $10.
Three card poker
Another card game is Three Card Poker, and you can also play it at one of the tables available at the Casino in Mont-Tremblant. The game is a variant of poker, and it can be regarded as an excellent way to learn about the conduct of classic poker games.

Regardless of whether you choose the English or the American version of the game you are able to place two types of bets: inside bets and outside bets. You can choose to bet on numbers 1 to 6 or 12 or 18 numbers with a single wager, that will guarantee a lot of excitement and entertainment.

The game tables with roulette dealers are available on Thursday from 12 pm to midnight, Friday from 12 pm to 3 am, on Saturday from 11 am to 3 am, and on Sunday from 11 am to midnight.

The minimum bet for a game of Interactive Blackjack is $10. The game also offers various options, including the Boni Upcard and Boni Buster.
Live Roulette is another way to enjoy the pleasures of Roulette by sitting in front of a touch screen. This type of game also uses the same rules and principles as a conventional Roulette.
When you are playing, you will first have to choose your language. You can then insert banknotes of either $5, $10, $20, $50 or $100 in the slot - you decide how much you want to play. You can then place bets on your favourite numbers, or many other combinations.
