Trending online gambling businesses in Canada

The online gambling market in Canada has enjoyed rapid growth over the past few years, with gamblers in some provinces have recently been able to take advantage of relaxed laws thanks to the C-218 bill.

Known as the ‘Safe and Regulated Sports Betting Act’ the C-218 bill was passed just last year and allows Canadians to place bets on single-game sporting events. It has led to a boom in online gambling in the country, which already had some level of legalized online casino play. And authorities are looking to relax regulations even more to allow punters access to as complete a gambling experience as possible.

Gamblers in Canada are now spoilt for choice when it comes to partaking in their pursuit via laptops, tablets, and smartphones. The sheer volume of online gambling platforms at their disposal is why Canada is now ranked in the top ten of worldwide online gambling markets.

The sheer volume of online gambling platforms at their disposal is why Canada is now ranked in the top ten of worldwide online gambling markets.

The ability to gamble from anywhere at any time on personal devices has proven to be a huge game-changer for the industry – and with gamblers becoming more trusting in online platforms and how they deal with their cash, it’s an industry where continued rapid growth is inevitable. 

An industry that had previously been frowned upon due to its offshore, almost clandestine nature, is now flying thanks to legalization from some federal governments and provinces. Combine that with robust security measures and the use of PayPal, Google/Apple Pay, and even cryptocurrencies as payment methods, and people can now trust the many, many platforms they can use.

It is reassuring to both the player and the platform – providing the business is legal, regulated by the authorities, and operates with the necessary licenses. If the site or app you play on satisfies all of these criteria then you can be at ease knowing that your personal data and your money are all in safe hands.

Those businesses without such a license cannot legally operate an online casino or sports betting website in Canada. Operating in an industry that enjoyed a gross turnover in 2021 of CA$610.4 million – and with future projections set to surpass that – it makes sense for businesses to ensure they have the rights to operate legally and enjoy a slice of these fortunes.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at three trending online gambling businesses in the country that are hot right now – and are all totally legal. Each platform offers an extensive variety of fun games to play, enticing offers and bonuses, and a great overall user experience for Canadian gamblers, and they all work well on any form of desktop or mobile device.

From casino games and slots to online sports betting, let’s dive right in…

HOT CASINO GAMES: Spin Casino

There are several game options at Spin Casino for gamblers to get their teeth into. As one of Canada’s best online gambling websites for over a decade – and arguably the biggest of all – Canadian Spin Casino portal offers a huge variety, from slots (over 300+ slots alone!) and live dealer roulette to sports betting and eSports betting. In fact, the live dealer roulette is genuinely a live dealer game thanks to its direct feed to a real casino table.

Of the 300+ slot games to play the site boasts Wheel of Wishes and its minimum jackpot of CA$2,000,000 whilst the sportsbooks provide betting options (including in-play) for all major sports and leagues. Interestingly, the welcome offer for the online casino and for the sportsbook is separated into two to appeal to gamblers even more.

And the Canadian gambling public really does rate and trust Spin Casino – one of the very few online casinos that have its servers in the country and operates to the highest standards and ethics. The fact that it has more active users than any other platform in the country says it all.


HOT SLOTS: Mega Moolah

Mega Moolah is one of the most popular slot games around and that trend looks set to continue. Its bright website and quirky animal themed symbols, which act as bonuses ranging from doubling up a win line (the lion) to granting 15+ free games and triple winnings (the monkey) are appealing, but it’s actually the progressive jackpot that keeps players coming back to the site for more.

The RTP on offer is slightly less than what you’d expect, but when the progressive jackpot can genuinely allow a player to turn a 25c first spin into an eventual CA$20 million jackpot win – smashing even Jackpot Giant’s record payout – no wonder this is an incredibly popular slot game.

Bonus features from a tiny minimum layout to huge “mega moolah” payouts – even a normal payout comes in at over CA$50,000 – are key reasons why this slot website is rated as one of the best around for this year.


HOT SPORTSBOOK: Bet365

A platform that incorporates both sports betting and online casino play under one roof – those of you who especially enjoy sports betting in Canada will definitely be aware of Bet365 very, very recently. The website, which also has its own app, boasts 20 million users in 200 countries worldwide including Canada, and 20 years of service to the industry and is one of the most trusted, safest sportsbooks going.

From its early days as a small, U.K. website the brand has fast become one of the largest businesses in the sports betting industry. It was granted its iGaming Ontario license by the AGCO in April of this year so is fresh into the Canadian market but is already making waves thanks to its unique service of sports betting options AND eSports betting.

With great signup and retention offers, an easy and intuitive interface, over 50 sports and further eSports to gamble on and auto “CashOut” and live streaming of events you have placed a bet on all available to enjoy, Bet365 is a new exciting player in a new exciting industry in Canada. Their casino play is also pretty solid as the business looks to maximize its opportunities in a new market.

There are plenty of online gambling businesses to choose from for Canadians this year but we hope the above three selections – which we think are the best right now in each of their categories – will all offer you something special. And, of course, they can open the door to a world of fun from single-event and competition sports betting to casino slots and poker. Enjoy!
