Land based casinos
While playing casino games online can be convenient, nothing quite beats the thrill of walking into a plush land-based casino, soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying a taste of luxury. Whether you’re playing slots with friends or enjoying the company of other casino goers around the roulette table, that unique casino experience is not to be missed.
Canada’s history of casino gambling doesn’t go back as far as its neighbour to the south, but since gambling was legalized in the country in 1972, it has been busy making up for lost time and can now boast some of the world’s best casino facilities. There are over 80 land-based casinos in the country, and many are set in the most stunning scenery you can imagine.
One quirk of land-based casinos in Canada is that each one is regulated by the province in which it is based, rather than by an international regulatory body, so visitors should be aware that the rules and regulations in Canadian casinos will vary according to location.
Otherwise, Canadian casinos offer the familiar land-based casino experience. You will find slot games, table classics such as roulette, craps, baccarat and blackjack, and the latest video poker machines. Slots are the most popular games at most land-based casinos, along with video poker, but as always if you’re looking to maximise your winning chances, you should be seeking out the games that offer the biggest payout percentages.
Players looking for a life-changing win will focus on the well-known progressive jackpot titles that offer a prize of potentially unlimited size. These slots machines can lead to some mammoth payouts but just as with playing progressive jackpots online, land-based casinos require you to wager a certain amount to be in with a chance of scooping the jackpot.
