Playground is conveniently located just minutes south of downtown Montreal in the Mohawk territory of Kahnawake. The Playground Complex boasts over 70 poker tables, over 400 Electronic Gaming Devices, and an inviting dining room in The Rail Coal Fire Bistro. Since its opening in 2010, Playground has experienced immense popularity with local and international players alike. The continued support of poker players from all over the world has allowed Playground to grow from modest beginnings to a poker destination of international calibre. Although it held less than two dozen poker tables when it first opened, by consistently exceeding players’ expectations Playground set the stage for years of steady growth.
Playground’s initial expansion was completed in late 2012 to welcome players who flocked to the club’s first World Poker Tour event. The event’s huge success drew the attention of the poker world, and each of the world-class tournament series that followed helped make Playground one of the world’s premier poker destinations. Playground now has years of experience hosting international events, and the poker community offered its recognition in 2017 when Playground won the American Poker Awards Event of the Year award for hosting the record-breaking partypoker MILLIONS North America. Carrying the momentum built by countless successful events, Playground broke ground on another expansion in 2018 to not only help accommodate the ever-growing tournament fields but also to expand the range of gaming options to include Electronic Gaming Devices.
Boasting over 70 tables, Playground Poker Club has all of the amenities on site to provide a world-class poker experience to anyone who comes through the front doors. This all starts with some of the best-trained dealers and floor staff in the industry. Our team spreads games 24/7 on freshly felted tables while players sit in the industry’s most comfortable poker chairs as they play. A professional wait staff serves beverages and food from The Rail Coal Fire Bistro, located within the Playground Complex itself, and a small army of certified massage therapists ensures that everyone can play in total comfort, no matter how long the session.
Cash game action continues 24/7 with NL Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha being the most common games, with amazing promotions active at all times to sweeten the pot. For tournament players, there’s an impressive schedule featuring over 20 tournaments per week, the majority of which have a generous guaranteed prize pool.
Daily tournaments are one thing, but what players anticipate most are the 4 major poker festivals that we host annually! Over the years, more than $100,000,000 - and counting - have been awarded in cash prizes to players from all around the globe.
In our Electronic Gaming Space of more than 30,000 square feet, Playground offers a selection of over 400 EGDs, including some of the most popular titles in the industry.
As of December 2018, players of all levels can enjoy Playground’s top-notch services and enchanting ambience while playing their favourite EGD!
The Rail Coal Fire Bistro provides a large menu that caters to all tastes at any hour of the day. Established when Playground first opened its doors, The Rail has grown along with the club to now boast a 130-seat dining room as well as a booming takeout business in The Rail “Express.”
The Rail’s commitment to using fresh ingredients and imaginative combinations for breakfast, lunch, and dinner has been the key to keeping customers satisfied over the years. By offering creative daily specials and top-notch service, The Rail has become one of the South Shore’s most popular dining destinations.
In addition to serving the local community, The Rail takes care of Playground’s players with a wide-ranging menu to indulge cravings of all kinds.
