Slot design specialist Lightning Box has continued its expansion into the North American market by launching its first titles in Canada.

Peter Causley, CEO and co-founder of Lightning Box, said: “We’re very excited to have launched Lightning Horseman in Canada, our first game in the country.

“Though this is our first title there, we have lots of experience in the North American market and this game adds to the impact we have made in real money gaming, social and land-based casinos.

‘Marie-Eve Laberge, Product Manager at Lotto Quebec, said: “We’re delighted to be the first operator in Canada to go live with Lightning Box’s games.

Gambling at Online Casinos for Canadians

Gambling at Online Casinos for Canadians
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Canucks are treated to a wide variety of quality games when it comes to online casino gaming for Canadians. The wide variety is only one of the advantages of laws that work in favour of online casino gaming in Canada. If you are looking to gamble in Canada or you are a curious Canadian looking to find out more about gambling at online casinos, you are in luck. Here is everything you need to know about the fine skill players so enjoy when gambling online.

Gambling for Real Money vs. Free Casino Games

For serious gamers, it’s about money. Canadian online casino sites offer Canuck players a real shot of unlocking life-changing sums of money. While this may be a highlight for many players who frequent Canada or reside in a beautiful country, there are those who enjoy a good casino game for free. Free casino gaming is a massive attraction for first-time players as well as players seeking more first-hand information on games, especially slot games.

Sign Up Bonuses

Before signing with an online casino look for the sign up bonuses which are rather common for Canadian casino owners to offer potential new members. Because of the high-quality games Canadian casinos are so famous for, these casinos attract a rather impressive following and in order to outdo one another they offer extravagant bonuses and competitive prices which allows Canucks the pleasure of saving money while simultaneously winning money.

Promotional Offers

Both land based gambling and online gambling in Canada provide players with some of the most innovative promotional offers, however, online gambling in Canada is far more tailored as players are able to choose their promotional preferences and benefit accordingly. Promotional offers usually run on certain days of the week or for a time period of a month, really allowing Canucks better value for their coin.

Gaming Variety

Canadian developed online casinos have been designed with the intention of attracting Canucks and one way of guaranteeing new and returning players is by offering a wide variety of casino games. Enjoy a list of games that include video poker, baccarat, blackjack, slots and so many more innovative ideas that have been developed for your pleasure.

Withdrawal and Payment Options

A contributing factor to the popularity of online casino gambling is that there are many available payment and withdrawal options which make for faster turnaround times for players looking. There is however a concern here as players should be aware that certain transactions take longer than others and may vary in fees. This is due to bank marking up transactions by charging users to utilize their services unless of course you are using an eWallet. The point is to make sure your Canadian casino has supplied you with enough information on the deposit and withdrawal options so that you can make an informed decision when withdrawing winnings or depositing cash into your real casino account.

Real Money Casino Licensing

Because you are dealing with real cash as mentioned above, you will need to ensure that your casino of preference is licensed and fully regulated so that when the time comes and you want to withdraw your winnings, there are no delays or reasons as to why the online casino refutes your request to withdraw what is rightfully yours. How you check the authenticity of a Canadian online casino is by scrolling to the bottom of the page and seeking out the casinos licensing number or certification of the casino. This then proves the legitimacy of the casino you have chosen, ensuring you get your cash out when wanted. Be sure to read the fine print in order to understand any delays should they arise.

Some of the leading online casinos in the world are Canadian casinos and you have the opportunity to explore these casinos as if they were in your backyard. There is nothing quite as satisfying as finding a reliable casino with all the perks, offers, and discounted rates to enhance your gaming experience. If you know what to look for and where to find it, it could be yours and that is why so many players are choosing to sign with online casinos for Canadians.
