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.

Flash Casinos to Disappear by Late 2020

Gone in a Flash: HTML5 open web tech to power 100% iGaming in 2020. Anyone who’s browsed the web for ten years or more should be well aware of the impact Flash technology has had on the computer-verse. In the 1990s, it gave birth to a whole new realm of possibilities. Everything from animated graphics, to in-browser video games, to entire websites were built in Flash; all powered by the universal Adobe Flash plug-in. In 2017, Adobe announced an “end of life” for Flash to come in late 2020. At that point, updates to the multimedia software project were abandoned. In response, Google Chrome developers turned off Flash and disabled the ‘ask to run‘ option by default. Anyone wishing to run Flash, or even get a message asking to run it, would have to enable it manually in their browser – not just once, but every browsing session. Some called … Continue reading

Unusual Table Games at Online Casinos

Three unique online casino table games you should try once. There are a lot of major differences between land-based and online casinos. The most obvious, of course, is the convenience of playing online. There’s no need to travel. You can play anytime, from anywhere. Just log onto your desktop, hop on the couch with a tablet, or whip out your smartphone. But there are more subtle conveniences worth noting. The types of differences that don’t get mentioned nearly so often as quicker games, lower stakes, or higher return percentages. I’m talking about the fact that online casinos have no space limitations. Internet casinos can provide their players with as many games as they like. They will never run out of seats, no matter how many players are participating. Because of this, they don’t have to stick to the ‘most popular games’, which often means a much more interesting selection to … Continue reading

Australia’s Issues make Canada’s Limited Sports Betting look Good

Is Canada’s restrictive approach to live, online sports betting a good thing? There are countless Canadians who wish the locals laws on sports betting could be less restrictive. I’ve personally been an advocate of legalizing straight-up sports bets for years now. But alas, all we have access to within Canada are parlay-style wagers. And maybe that’s not such a bad thing after all. After hearing of a report from Australia, perhaps it’s time we reconsider. Maybe our nation’s more restrictive approach, limiting up to a Pro-Line Sports Lottery, is a good thing. And besides, we do have access to highly reputable, international online sportsbooks, where single event wagers are welcome. Study Shows Australia’s Youth Correlate Sports with Gambling Deakin University, in Victoria, Australia, has done a series of studies on the correlation between sports, gambling, and the country’s youth.

Gamble Online from any Computer or Mobile Device

Switch it Up: Play casino games on mobile and desktop with instant-play. Gambling was once an activity reserved for society’s elite.

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. It’s also not the type of software online casinos look to employ more than one of. 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
