THE BENEFITS OF PLAYING IN ONLINE CASINOS CATERING TO CANADIANS
Casinos catering to Canadians provide various benefits that should not be underestimated by Canadians. Let's take a look at some of these benefits and show why the decision of which casino to join should focus on Canadian-centric ones.
An online casino that targets Canadian players is more likely to have banking options that are more heavily used in Canada. More importantly, some of them will allow you to plat in Canadian dollars, sparing you from the headache of having to transfer money between different currencies (and the fees that tend to go along with such endeavours), as well as the value of the money in your account possible depreciating should the Canadian dollar fall against the alternative currencies you're forced to play with.
Companies with a focus on Canada will be prepared to provide greater support to Canadian players. Most will have a Canada-specific toll-free support line, with support in both English and French. Additionally, support for the French language is almost assuredly included on the website and within the gaming software, to cater to the French speaking demographic in Quebec and other pockets of the country.
While Canadians don't generally have to concern themselves with the legality of where they play online like Americans do (and most online casinos do not accept Americans because of the legal hurdles to online gaming present in that country), there's still something to be said for the peace of mind provided by playing through a site that is fully regulated and licensed to accept Canadian players.
The Downside of Provincial Casinos
Naturally, one would think that given the previously mentioned points, playing at one of the provincially licensed online casinos that have popped up in recent years would be ideal. However these websites fail to provide the selection of games or customer support that larger sites can offer Canadian players, and each is restricted only to players from that particular province; meaning if you move in the future, you're now out of luck when it comes to your old online casino haunting ground. Provincial casinos also lack the loyalty programs and other promotions present at the more competitive mainstream casinos. They are a bare-bones, no-frills way to play that offers very little incentive for Canadians to join their ranks, given the plethora of more attractive options out there.
