Online casinos are becoming more and more popular all over the world, and this popularity is making more and more Internet casinos join this gambling boom.
In North America, and specifically in Canada, more and more people want to play on the Internet and have switched from traditional casinos to games that can be played from anywhere, on mobile or computer.
The technological revolution brought about by the introduction of smartphones has boosted online gaming consumption.
Casino operators have taken note of the technological shift and have seized on it as an opportunity to expand and take their business a step further. It’s a business that, right now, has no ceiling. It is booming.
There are several factors that influence casino gaming to be so popular in Canada.
One of the key aspects is that Canadian citizens do not have to pay taxes on winnings derived from gambling, with some exceptions.
Players of any form of bingo or recreational casino games are not required to declare winnings. Only those who engage in online gambling as a full-time job or who make gambling their primary livelihood activity are required to do so. Only in these cases are players not excluded from paying taxes.
On the other hand, gamblers who occasionally visit a casino or play gambling games on the Internet simply for fun do not pay taxes on winnings. If you play for fun, you are free from paying taxes. Surely this is legislation that appeals to you.
We can say that Canada has a little restrictive legislation regarding casinos, although it is well ordered and complete.
Gambling in Canada is mainly managed by provincial government monopolies. In this regard, private companies are mainly involved as suppliers of goods and services.
Most Canadian provinces have allowed gambling to extend to both traditional land-based casinos and digital and electronic gambling.
The Canadian Criminal Code provides that no person may be convicted of an offense outside of Canada.
Although the Code has extrajurisdictional force, it only applies in very serious specific cases. If an online gambling company has no ties to Canada (even if it receives frequent visits from Canadian players) it should not have any legal problems.
Thus, players can access both platforms and casinos authorized by the relevant provincial authorities and international platforms not based in Canada.
We are facing a new era for online casinos and gambling. This new era started already a few years ago, but we are still in transition.
Traditional casino games using real money are still very popular around the world, but we could say that their growth is stagnating. Today users are looking not only for the best casinos, but also for the best online casinos.
The opposite is true for online casinos, which have undergone several revolutions. There are versions for desktop computers, but casinos adapted to operate on mobile devices are becoming more and more popular.
It is a trend that has been gaining strength in places where gambling moves significant figures, such as the United Kingdom, but it is also seen in Canada and practically all over the world.
Mobile gambling guarantees portability. It is incomparable to use online casinos from a cell phone or from a computer. Cell phones fit in our pockets, computers, even laptops, have been relegated to the domestic space. We don’t usually take them out of the house, in a backpack, for that we have mobiles and, to a lesser extent, tablets.
Mobile versions of gaming have also put a lot of emphasis on developing a good user experience, with the development of clean and simple interfaces that make the game much more entertaining and accessible.
