CA Lotteries get Creative to Entertain Bettors

Canada’s lotteries keeping players interested with alternative sports bets and greater incentives. All over the world, businesses are suffering. Many have shut down, while others are forced to accept the minimal revenue they’re still pulling in. Canadian lottery corporations are operating at a mere fraction of their previous capacity. All retail sales are suspended until further notice, but online sales remain active. That’s good news for the provincial governments who rely heavily on gambling revenue to supplement their budgets, but bad news when you consider at least 75% all gambling revenue came from land-based sales, video lotteries and casinos. The news gets worse when you calculate in sports lotteries that drew the vast majority of their revenue from North American and European sporting events. Every major athletic sports league on the planet has suspended activities until further notice. There are no NBA basketball games, no MLB baseball games, no MLS … Continue reading

Playground Poker Club Announces Online Launch

Playground Poker Online: Canada’s best poker room teams with PartyPoker to launch online cash games. For the last decade, poker fans all across the country, and beyond, have looked to the Playground Poker Club as the top poker destination in all of Canada. Located in Kahnawake, Quebec, just outside of Montreal, Playground features a massive, 128,000 sq.ft. gaming floor featuring 75 poker tables, and of course some slot machines to offset the entertainment variety. In the last ten years, the property has played host to some of the largest poker events this side of the 49th parallel.

The Truth About Free Casino Apps

Why even the best free slot app is dramatically unrealistic. There are literally thousands upon thousands of free slot machine apps on the Google Play and iTune app stores. It’s crazy how many results come up when you search for things like slots and casino games. We’ll never know exactly how many there are, because the results for any given search on Google Play stops at 250. I find it especially troubling that you’re not allowed to sort them by review ratings, but that’s besides the point of today’s topic – the lack of realism in free slot machine apps. Ask anyone who’s played these ‘social casino games’, and they’ll tell you something they don’t like about them; something that makes them unrealistic. The most common reason circulated is the belief that free slots games have a higher return to player (RTP) than the real money editions. It is always … 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

Espacejeux Celebrates “10 Years of Ta-Dah!” with $100k Giveaway

Arrival of 2020 marks 10 year anniversary for online casino Quebec. It’s finally here – the new year, a new decade, a time to look back on the wonders of recent past, and reinvent yourself for the bright future ahead. While you’re at it, you might as well take advantage of some rare opportunities afforded by Quebec’s home-grown and locally regulated online casino. Espacejeux.com is celebrating its 10 year anniversary in 2020. Anyone who’s followed them in the previous decade may remember that promotions aren’t their strong point. There’s no big welcome bonus package for new players; no weekly or monthly reload bonuses; no free spins on the slot machines for your birthday. So when I heard Espacejeux was hosting a six-figure cash prize giveaway, it caught my attention. 10 Year Anniversary for Online Casino Quebec It was January 26, 2010, when the government of Quebec officially passed a motion … 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

Benefits of Bonus Hunting at Online Casinos

How casino bonus hunting gets you more bang for your depositing buck. Sometimes, the old saying that ‘less is more’ rings true. It’s better to have a few quality friends that have your back, than a large group of acquaintances who couldn’t care less. It may be possible to fit 500 decorations on a Christmas tree, but it would look less gaudy, and much more elegant with less. In such cases, it is a lesson well learned. In most circumstances, though, we all believe that ‘bigger is better’. A bigger screen TV is more fun to watch. A bigger couch sits more people to watch that TV. A bigger family means more love to go around. And, the most obvious of all, a bigger bank account means its far easier to pay for all those bigger things we like. As an extension of that theory, bonus hunting at online casinos … Continue reading

A virtual tour of Canadian gambling opportunities in 2020. Your degree of interest in this information will be directly related to your age. The younger you are, the more common place today’s digital technology will seem to you. The older you are, the more amazing you’ll find the multifarious ways in which Canadians can partake in gaming.

The Not-So-Virtual Reality of Internet Gambling

State of Online Gambling in 2020: The future is here and now! As I awoke this morning, slowly blinking away the cobwebs of grogginess, something occurred to me. In less than six weeks, we’ll be ringing in the new year. Not just any new year, but the year 2020. It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were celebrating the turn of a new millennium. Sure, I was a lot younger in those days, but my-oh-my have the times have changed! In 2000, internet gambling barely existed. The internet wasn’t even a household thing yet. Hardly anyone used online banking services, and those who did were mostly eBay auction extraordinaires. Today, everyone uses the internet, everyday, in multiple ways. We buy things, move money, pay bills, send text messages and snap chats, post every passing thought on social media, and in between it all, we access all manner of entertainment; … Continue reading
