Canadian provinces and territories were granted the right to oversee gambling activities back in 1985, and while regulations in Ontario have been pretty relaxed, the opportunity for players to join fully licensed or regulated top casino sites has been slim. There are plenty of land-based casinos on hand, but online options have been limited, with offshore or lottery sites the main means of playing at online casinos for Ontario residents.
Being Canada's largest province, there are plenty of online casino fans who will be happy to hear the news that by the end of 2021 they will be able to play for real money at a plethora of both new casinos and well-established industry veterans. Whether it's playing slots games, or the ever enticing progressive jackpot slots, or the more bread-and-butter casino table games like roulette and blackjack - the options are now going to be endless for online casinos enthusiasts.
With the online casino industry already a booming sector in Ontario, the introduction of more licensed online casinos to hit the market means it could truly go stratospheric. The process of making a new account and making your first withdrawal will be able to be done in a matter of minutes, right from the comfort of your own home, meaning you can enjoy some of the finest games that online casinos and the software providers they team up with has to offer.
