The Casino du Lac-Leamy (formerly the Casino de Hull) is a government-run casino in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada.

The casino was opened on March 24, 1996, the third of a group of casinos built by the provincial government to raise funds. Ottawa, the larger city across the river, was also planning to build a casino in the early 1990s, but these plans were blocked by the provincial government.
