3 of Canada’s Top 5 Online Slots are by Play’n Go

Play’n Go slots rule the roost at Canada online casinos in 2020. A few years ago, no one knew who Play’N Go was. Despite having been in the digital gambling software business since 2005, they spent their early years developing games for other software brands, who subsequently earned all the credit. Once they decided to go it alone, it took a few more years to make a name for themselves. Now, in the first weeks of 2020, almost every avid online casino gamer knows Play’n Go. Even those who don’t know the brand name are probably familiar with their games. Play’n Go is the proud creator of titles like Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, Ankh of Anibus, and Fire of Egypt. Play’n GO attributes its success to its elite staff of games creators. In their own words; “Play’n GO people have the expertise and passion for slots that … Continue reading

Toronto iGaming: PlayOLG vs. Royal Vegas?

Comparing two of the top Toronto online casino sites, PlayOLG and Royal Vegas. As Canadians, we live in one of the world’s most beneficially liberal countries.

Online Casino Bonuses with Low Playthrough

Online casino low playthrough bonus offers: How low is low? Almost every promotion in the world looks great on a banner. It’s not until you read the fine print that you find out whether it’s really a good deal or not. Leasing a brand new vehicle with no down payment and a cheap monthly rate seems great, until you find out about all the fees, like security deposit, acquisition fee, doc fee, excess wear fee, disposition fee, excess mileage fee, lease-swap fee, gap insurance, I could go on and on… Online casino bonuses are similar. Matching a deposit dollar for dollar up to, say, $400, is a great deal. But the fine print can include intensive wagering requirements, or playthrough, game restrictions, withdrawal limitations, and other unsavory demands. Most of the common requisites are understandable. After all, casinos aren’t in the business of giving away money. But what most people … Continue reading

Canada Sports Betting Laws Keeping Up with the Jones?

Legal sports betting at a Canada casino in 2020 – What are the odds? For more years than most of you have been alive, Canadians have been able to place a wide range of bets on a vast number of amusements. Horse race betting was always a thing. Bingo and special charity events have been around for ages. We’ve had lotteries since the 1970s, and the first genuine casinos came along in the 1980s. It was around that time the nation’s lottery officials came up with the idea of a launching a sports lottery they called Sports Select (Pari Sportif). Most provinces launched it under the name Pro-Line. Any adult-aged Canadian could walk into a lottery retailer, fill out a Pro-Line slip, and purchase it, just like a 6/49 lotto ticket. For many, many years, we were content with this; especially in the 1990s, when the US government through a … Continue reading

Canada Online Betting, Then and Now

Online Betting Canada: A factual recollection of lawful iGaming. In some ways, it’s surprising just how much online gambling has evolved throughout the world. Far more surprising, however, is the rapid evolution of digital technology. Just look how far we’ve come in the last 30 years. When I was a kid, nascent video gaming consoles were all the rage. I still remember unwrapping my first Nintendo Entertainment System. Not the Super Nintendo. Not the Nintendo 64, or today’s Nintendo 3DS, Wii U or Switch editions. I’m talking about the original NES that came with the original Super Mario Brothers / Duck Hunt cartridge combo, and that laser gun that made every small child wonder how pointing it at a TV worked to shoot down animated ducks. More gaming consoles arrived, followed by computers small enough to put on a desk, and then, the granddaddy of them all – the information … Continue reading

Manitoba’s Veterans Reap the Rewards of VLT Gambling

Manitoba’s Premier fulfills promise to give more gambling revenue to Legions. Gambling is a tricky topic. Some people love it. Other people hate it. A few think they can make a living from it, while some lose everything they hold dear trying. The morality and legality of gambling has for decades been a matter of great religious and political debate. But if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that the governments who regulate it are mesmerized by the amount of money it generates. Most governments are prone to increasing taxes to suck every bit of money they can out of casinos and other gambling businesses. While Manitoba’s leaders do appreciate the cash flow it generates – perhaps more so than any other Canadian province – they’ve exhibited a greater level of respect and appreciation for the people of the province than the gambling money in their coffers. … Continue reading

Citizens Launch Petition Against Kenora Casino Proposal

Seven years after approval by the city, residents petition against new casino in Kenora, Ontario. The city of Kenora has come a very long way over the years. For centuries, it served as a merchant port under the rules of various European nations. When it was incorporated as a trading post by France in 1882, it was called Portage-aux-Rats, or Rats Portage, meaning exactly what it sounds like. In 1905, it gained the more respectable title of Kenora, and the city has steadily flourished since. By 2012, the city had swelled so much that it drew the attention of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG). Provincial regulators thought it was about time Kenora received its own small casino establishment, complete with 300 slot machines that would create an estimated 90 jobs in the community, and generate up to $6 million in revenue for the coffers of the municipality. The … Continue reading

The Foreseeable Future of Canada’s iGaming Frontier

Are mobile live casinos the final frontier for gambling in Canada? There’s no denying that gambling is one of the most lucrative businesses in the world. Not for the gamblers, mind you, but for the owners and operators of gambling establishments; casinos, card rooms, bingo halls, race tracks, sports books, etc. Billions of dollars pass through Canada’s commercial casinos every year, and it’s been this way since the activity was legalized so many decades ago. Yes, gambling is one of the country’s most popular pastimes. With the national GDP on a steady incline, the amount of money we spend on this unique form of entertainment is sure to continue rising as well. How we partake in it, however, has been evolving since the dawn of the internet, so much so that the question of stability in the land-based gambling industry is questionable, at best. Are Mobile Live Casinos the Final … Continue reading
