Masse Hopes for Legal Sports Movement Next Week

Internet Gambling Canada: A “lose-lose position” without legal sports betting. It’s been nearly a decade since political figureheads began the push for legalization of single-event sports betting in Canada. In the early days, there was little more than a hope and a prayer. The required legislation was, at first, unanimously applauded, only to lose favor beyond the house, dying a slow and miserable death. Another push began a few years later, but was largely ignored. It wasn’t until our neighbors to the south amended their laws that more Canadians began to take notice. Now, with legal sports betting spreading at a rapid pace across US states, the need to legalize single-event betting in the Great White North is finally being seen as an issue worthy of intense debate. One of its most adamant supporters over the years, NDP MP Brian Masse, says the first real movement could feasibly happen as … Continue reading

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

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
