What Canadians needs to know about online gambling




Canadians love online betting and participating in online gambling for real, but are these activities legal? People can sometimes get confused when it comes to the legitimacy of online casinos, as Canadian laws tend to be a bit more complicated and complex than usual.

It is important to mention that so far, there are several types of physical gambling activities that are legal in Canada, and the same laws apply to online gambling. However, there are certain aspects, such as using overseas gambling websites that are somewhat unclear. Therefore, it is safe to say that things can get confusing for passionate gamblers, especially when it comes to gambling real money on virtual platforms.

Is it legal for Canadians to gamble at online casinos?

The short answer is yes. From a player’s perspective, online gambling is legal in Canada. Operating an online casino from Canada is, however, illegal. Consequently, most web-based casinos that can be accessed from Canada are offshore.

Because high-quality gambling websites that offers games like Jackpot city casino Canada are safe and completely legal, Canada is a very attractive gaming environment and its residents can safely enjoy online gambling.

Nowadays, the great majority of gambling forms have been legalized on Canadian territory. Online gambling, however, is sometimes considered a bit trickier because it is illegal for local companies to operate web-based casinos. This situation is a result of the fact that up until the 1960s, the Canadian Government was a fierce opponent of all types of gambling. After the 1960s, however, each Canadian province has a right to decide whether or not poker and gambling activities are legal within their borders. When this law was instated, some provinces legalized lotteries and even casinos. In 1989, in Winnipeg, the first Canadian casino was opened followed by the one in Montréal in 1993.

Presently, when it comes to gambling, it is legal for each Canadian province to choose which types of gambling are legal and which are not, and the same principle applies to online gambling. For example, the Kahnawake Mohawk Nation province has been allowed by the Canadian Government to legalize online casinos on its territory. Since then, large numbers of Canadian players have been able to enjoy online gambling legally and safely.

What are the best money transaction methods for Canadian online casinos?

Because a lot of online casinos available to Canadian players are based in other countries, completing payments can sometimes be difficult. For instance, the most popular credit card option – Visa, is not an accepted payment method at every web-based casino.

In some cases, setting up an account on a third-party finance transfer website might be required before a player can join a gambling website. Canadian players should also know that some virtual casinos prefer wire transfers, while others will provide a list of alternative payment methods.

A popular and legal payment method used by Canadian players to make deposits in virtual casinos is Citadel. This platform offers safe online payment services and guarantees that each transaction is safely and securely processed. Furthermore, Citadel Commerce offers customers the option to transfer funds in an inexpensive, easy, safe, and reliable way. Transactions through Citadel can be executed from any mobile or computer device that is connected to the Internet. Citadel is so popular among Canadian users because it does not require an associated credit card and does not reveal any banking or personal details to third-party websites. The only personal information that players must provide in order to be able to use Citadel is a valid bank account.

Another popular payment method that Canadian players can use is ClickandBuy. This platform is also one of the most used transfer methods within the global gambling industry. The things that make the ClickandBuy platform so incredibly popular are the facts that it is very user-friendly, secure, and safe. The registration process on the ClickandBuy website is very simple. The user needs to fill in their personal details (name, address, etc.) and some financial information. After filling in the aforementioned details, the users go through a quick verification process and they are all set.

Visa is also a widespread online casino deposit method due to the fact that Visa credit, debit, and prepaid cards are accepted in more than 150 countries. This means that numerous websites, including online casinos based in other countries, will accept Visa.

Another brand known for the high levels of security provided to users, reliability and product diversity is MasterCard. Being accepted all over the world, MasterCard transfers are extremely popular in online gambling communities. The main difference between Visa and MasterCard is the fact that players are able to withdraw their online casino winnings with Visa, while MasterCard users do not have this option.

In conclusion, it is important for Canadian players to know that participating in online gambling is a legal activity and that they can use a wide range of money transaction methods such as Citadel, ClickandBuy, Visa, and MasterCard.
