Loto-Québec’s excellent results


In this period of troubles caused by the international pandemic of the Covid-19 coronavirus, many sectors are facing difficulties. This is the case for land-based casinos, for example.

However, the Loto-Québec group in Canada has just published excellent results for the 2021-2022 fiscal year. Just like the Partouche group, which has good results (see article below), the Loto-Québec group can smile.

Now, this state-owned company whose mission is to operate in order and measure games in the beautiful province operates among others 4 real casinos.

Overall revenues up 57.5% thanks mainly to the lottery

Because of the global health crisis, Quebec casinos have been forced to keep their doors closed for about 40% of the 2021-2022 fiscal year. Despite this, Loto-Quebec still released results showing that all of its business lines have recovered.

Thus, the group recorded total revenues of C$2.217 billion (approximately 1.64 billion euros). This represents an increase of 57.5% over the last fiscal year.

Land-based casino sector up 96.9

It’s not just the lottery that has been on the rise at Loto-Québec, during the 2021-2022 fiscal year. Indeed, its other sectors of activity all recorded an increase, even the land-based casino sector. Nevertheless, it still did not manage to surpass the revenue levels it achieved before the global health crisis.

Still, it should be remembered that gambling establishments in la belle province remained closed for about 40% of the time. In addition, when they were open, they had to face certain restrictions, including limits on their capacity and hours.

Nevertheless, revenues in this sector still reached 657.2 million Canadian dollars (486.37 million euros), which represents an increase of 96.9% compared to the previous year. Nevertheless, these figures represent only 68% of what they were in 2019-2020.

An increase of 6.1% for online games

As the international Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic has led to the temporary closure of gaming establishments for nearly 40% of the 2021-2022 fiscal year, it will come as no surprise to learn of the good results of the Loto-Québec group’s online gaming sector. Indeed, many people have turned to the web to continue playing.

Thus, revenues in this area reached for the state-owned company 390 million Canadian dollars (288.84 million euros). This represents an increase of 6.1% compared to 2020-2021. Moreover, it should be noted that online games represent 17.6% of Loto-Québec’s overall revenue.

This is a considerable increase compared to the distribution of revenues before the international health crisis. Indeed, in fiscal year 2019-2020, online games represented only 5% of total revenues. This increase can also be explained by various improvements made to Loto-Québec’s platforms.
