Quebec bingo industry losing profits due to aging clientele and competition

(May 25, 2015) Jean-Marc Crete sits attentively on his platform, mic in left hand, the potential winning ball freshly released from a constantly buzzing machine that provides the soundtrack to the Montreal bingo game. “O soixante-sept; O sixty-seven,” Crete calls, gently slotting the ball in a socket on a console that also acts as his desk…About five years ago Loto-Quebec created Kinzo, modelled after the European version of bingo, the profits of which are turned over to community groups as a way to make up for the shortfall from traditional bingo.
