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

If you’ve landed on this page, it’s safe to assume you’re new to the online casino community – or at least new to the concept of live dealer casinos. For years, computer generated, RNG-based games were the only way to play over the internet.

Canada’s Favorite Live Casino launches in US Market

Best Canada Live Casino expands south into New Jersey, USA. The live dealer casino market isn’t nearly so competitive as its cousins in electronic gambling. There are hundreds of companies developing game software for online casinos, building interactive, RNG-based slot machines, tables games and more. Contrariwise, only around two dozen brands host live casino studios, streaming genuine table action to desktops, smartphones and tablets all over the world. There are a few logical explanations for why the live casino industry is so much smaller. For the last decade, it’s been more of a niche market, largely due to high-tech demands.

Furthermore, it’s not a very inviting business for entrepreneurs when a single entity has already reached astronomical heights, soaring far beyond the capabilities and popularity of any existing competitor. If you’re familiar with today’s … Continue reading
