The benefits of playing online casino games

The online gaming opportunities for Canadians are expanding at a rapid rate, and there are now more and more sites where you can play an increasingly diverse range of games. Slots remain the most popular option, but when you start to explore the growing range of online casino Canada sites out there, you’ll soon find that there are plenty of other games to choose from as well.

Perhaps the biggest benefit to playing at an online casino is the range and diversity of the games on offer.


Slots, of course, are extremely popular, and the variety of games is huge, encompassing all types of gameplay and an enormous number of themes and styles. Part of the reason for this is that the games at Canadian online casinos are by a variety of different producers. These include the major names in the industry, like NetEnt, Microgaming and Playtech, as well as a host of innovative new developers such as Quickspin, Thunderkick and Yggdrasil.


Canadian slot games include classic 3 reel games, 5-reel video slots, and themed slots based on hit movies, TV shows, bands and video games, and feature a huge array of paylines and ways to win. They are packed with free spin bonus rounds and a host of other features that enhance the gameplay, and so in terms of sheer entertainment value, the choices are almost endless.


Likewise, online slots offer a wide range of coin sizes, so you can play for a few cents or hundreds of dollars per spin. No matter the size of your bankroll, there will be an entertaining online slot game that gives you a good value gaming experience.

Another big attraction of playing online slots is the range of progressive jackpot games. Most major slot developers have their own networks featuring a selection of different games, and the progressive jackpots on these slots can reach astronomical heights very quickly — the biggest games, like Mega Moolah and Mega Fortune, regularly pay out wins worth tens of millions of dollars.


However, these games are always accessible in terms of coin and bet size, so you don’t have to be a high roller to be in the running for a life-changing jackpot win.


Other online casino games

Online casinos are about much more than slots, however. Table and card games are hugely popular as well, and you can play all of the most well-known games alongside some more obscure casino games that you might not encounter anywhere else.


So whether you like to play casino classics like blackjack, roulette and baccarat, or games that aren’t as well known, like Punto Banco, Hi-Lo, Red Dog or Pai Gow, you always have plenty of choice and variety when you play at an online casino.


This also extends to live dealer games, which you can play at most online casino Canada sites. Games are streamed in real time HD to your phone or laptop from either a purpose-built studio or a casino gaming floor, and are all dealt by professional dealers with whom you can interact. In this way, you are getting the best of both worlds — the convenience of online gaming combined with the social element you experience when playing at a bricks and mortar casino.


You can enjoy live dealer versions of all the classic card and table games, plus table poker games like Casino Hold’em, Caribbean stud poker and 3-card poker. There are also new games invented specifically for play in live dealer online casinos, like Football Studio (a version of Top Card where you can engage with the dealer and talk about football and sports) and Dragon Tiger (a Top Card game aimed at the Asian market).


Big wheel games are also popular in live dealer casinos, with Evolution Gaming’s Dream Catcher being the best known of these. These are lively, fun and interactive games that are straightforward to play and very easy to bet on, and so can be enjoyed by both experienced players and newbies alike.
