MONTREAL, May 8, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - A new Kinzo establishment comes to
Québec City on Wednesday, May 15th. This dynamic, one-of-a-kind game is played in an ambiance that is both
relaxed and exciting. People come to have a good time, play, laugh,
interact with others, have a snack or a drink… and, who knows, maybe
even win! The new Kinzo hall, which can accommodate about seventy
players, will be located at 100, Chabot street in Vanier.
What is Kinzo?
Kinzo is a unique entertainment concept where playing is as much fun as
winning. To participate, players purchase a $2 ticket on which
15 numbers are distributed over 3 lines. Each ticket provides two ways
to win. The first player to tick off five numbers on the same line and
press the button in front of him wins the first game. The round then
continues until a player marks all 15 numbers on their card for a
chance to win up to $100,000! Kinzo is played simultaneously across a
network of halls, enabling players to win attractive prizes. Each Kinzo
game takes about 6 minutes to play, which comes out to about 20 winners
Between games, players have time to relax and have a light meal or a
drink from the bar. One thing is sure: whether or not you win at Kinzo,
everyone has fun! Kinzo halls can be found across Québec: Montréal,
Laval, Saint-Eustache, Vaudreuil-Dorion, Longueuil, Joliette,
Repentigny, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Drummondville, Victoriaville,
Granby, Sherbrooke and Québec City's Beauport sector. For more
