Espacejeux Review is the online betting platform of LotoQuebec, which is the provinces lottery and gaming oversight body.  At first glance, the site doesn’t look like much with a dark and somewhat cramped design.  The good news is that while Espacejeux won’t win any awards for their visual appeal the site offers a nice assortment of gaming options including lottery games, casino games, slot machines and sports betting.

‘Espacejeux’ is a French term that loosely translates into English as ‘games in space’ (‘espace’ is a fairly common French slang referring to ‘cyberspace’) and there’s plenty of action here for the gaming enthusiasts of Quebec including both French and English websites.  Everything that you might need to know related to the Espacejeux games or LotoQuebec in general is just a click away including extensive FAQ pages, archived lottery results, detailed rules and a directory of live gaming options.

Financial transactions are simple as well with all major credit cards and bank account transfers accepted.  As is the case with most lottery run online sites there isn’t much in the way of bonuses but there are plenty of contests and giveaways listed under ‘events’.  Customer service is available via telephone 24/7 and is also available via email.

Lottery Games

LotoQuebec makes their full menu of games available online—currently thirty separate lottery games are offered for online play including the national games LottoMax and Lotto649.  All games offer a ‘demo mode’ which is a good way for players to make sure they understand the rules before playing with real money.  Everything about the lottery games is clear and easy to use including rules, drawing times and an archive of past results.

Casino Games

Twenty-six variations of table games are offered including mainstays such as blackjack, sic bo, baccarat and roulette.   There are six varieties of roulette and five varieties of blackjacks with multiple rule options for most other games.  Also available are lower profile games such as three card poker and red dog.  A section of ‘EZ Games’ offers more ways to play including the currently popular ‘chain reaction’ type of games.  Slot players have it good with 44 different games offered online including titles found in casinos worldwide including ‘Double Diamonds’, ‘Lobster Mania’ and ‘Wheel of Fortune’.   The only glaring omission is video poker games which are offered at video lottery terminals (VLT) but not online.

Sports Betting

While every jurisdiction in Canada is limited by the prohibition against ‘single event wagers’ Espacejeux does a nice job within these restrictions.  They offer as many single wagers as possible (comprised of multiple events to comply with regulations) and an impressive range of sports and bet types.  The betting odds are set in house and the wagering software is intuitive and easy to use.

Other Games

Poker is available through a standalone software package available for download on the Espacejeux site.  Bingo is also offered with ‘community rooms’ limited to players from Quebec as well as a ‘networked’ room with players from throughout Canada.


While Espacejeux might not be as flashy or full featured as the BCLC’s ‘Playnow’ platform it’s equally good in terms of actual gameplay.  LotoQuebec deserves a lot of credit for giving the players a viable alternative to internationally based online betting sites.  The omission of video poker is curious but that’s really the only casino game area in which the site is lacking.  Single game sports betting would be nice but that’s not the fault of LotoQuebec or the developers and they do a nice job working within the existing rules to offer a wide variety of options.  Overall, Espacejeux is a great online platform for Quebec’s gaming enthusiasts—French or English speaking.
