6 Things to Know When Choosing an Online Casino in Canada

What is it that makes playing online casino games at one casino better than at another?

Online casino players in Toronto and the rest of Canada, and indeed around the world, will ask themselves this question when starting out to play casino games online.

The online gambling industry is huge and showing no signs of slowing down, bringing players great choice. With a great many casinos online, all competing for your loyalty and continued play – how do you decide which one deserves your money?

Well, there are a few essential questions to ask. The following points are good to add to your checklist. Covering these can not only offer peace of mind but ensures that your online entertainment experience will be a happy and safe one.


Always check that the online casino you are using has a valid gaming license. This license certifies that the casino is following stringent regulations and operating legally. You can generally find a logo at the bottom of the website, linking to an authoritative body and license number. Many online gambling companies are registered in Malta and fully regulated by The Malta Gaming Authority.

Safe and Secure Website

All good online casinos in Canada will have SSL encryption denoted by a padlock at the beginning of the website address. In addition, a login account will safely protect your details. An email address and password create this, so make sure not to give any financial information away before this is in place.

Payment Method Options

Fast deposit methods and fee-free deposits are two things to look for when selecting your online casino. Canadian popular E-wallets payment methods like MuchBetter, ecoPayz, and Paysafecard are great for depositing and withdrawing funds. In addition, some casinos are now accepting cryptocurrency payments through AstroPay, which could be an advantage for players who have invested in this digital currency.

Game Providers

Check to see which of the big game providers an online casino supports. One reason is the number of games you get to play; boredom will set in pretty quickly if only a few games are listed! Secondly, suppose you see all the top names like Evolution, NetEnt, Pragmatic Play, and Gamomat mentioned. Then, you can expect a varied choice of good slots and live casino games to enjoy.

Online Casino Bonus Offers

It is usual for an online casino to offer players additional bonuses to encourage you to sign up with them, so keep an eye out for terms like a no-deposit bonus. This bonus gives players the chance to play without depositing any money. It is often a one-off low amount or several free spins. Secondly, look for a generous welcome bonus that might apply over the first two or three deposits you make after creating an account. A welcome bonus often looks like this: 1st Deposit: Get a 100% up to $500 and 50 free spins in Wolf Gold. There will usually be wagering requirements attached. These require you to play the frees spins, for example, several times before withdrawing any winnings, but this can still be a good offer.

Customer Support Team

Finally, a good support team should be there for you 24-hours a day and 7-days a week via email, phone, or real-time live chat. You never know what time that burning question will arise!
