All throughout cyberspace, I’ve seen a lot of new Canada casinos. 2017 is certainly stacking up to be a big year for the iGaming industry, but how do these new operations compare to tried-and-true veterans like Royal Vegas?
The online casino industry is overflowing with competition. Over the last two decades, thousands of operators have opened their virtual doors. Some grew to enormous heights, while others fell to the wayside. Such is the fate of many businesses that delve into such vastly competitive waters.
New Canadian Casinos 2017
Let’s take a look at what the new year has to offer, and which ones have the best chance of success, based on criteria and backing.
One of the newer brands to hit the Canadian market is called Mobireels Casino. As the name implies, this operator is hoping to draw mobile casino fans to its digital slots and tables, although the platform does support mobile, tablet and desktop game play.
They chose an array of leading software brands to power the interactive casino, including its own proprietary software, plus big names like IGT, NetEnt, NextGen, Scientific Games and more.
Mobireels is licensed in Gibraltar and the United Kingdom, which speaks volumes towards the brand’s respectable intentions. It’s owned by Nektan Limited, a company that was publicly listed on the London Stock Exchange AIM in November 2014 and supplies mobile content to US land-based casinos.
Another casino that’s made some waves with its recent launch is Spinit Casino, a new Canadian casino for 2017 that combines the vast game variety of Evolution‘s elite live dealer casino games with other leading brands like Microgaming, NetEnt, Play’n Go and more.
Spinit Casino is owned by a group called Genesis Global Limited, based out of Malta. The operator is licensed in Malta and the United Kingdom, and operates one other (equally new) gambling site. While everything seems up and up, its license has only been active since August 2016. A good reputation is built on longevity, and that’s one thing Spinit Casino still lacks.
Wild Slots Casino
Next up is another new multi-platform online and mobile gambling site called Wild Slots Casino. Again, we see a rather impressive list of software being integrated, including renowned 3D slots developer Betsoft, Microgaming, NYX Gaming and others.
On the plus side, Wild Slots is owned and operated by EveryMatrix Ltd, a well-established member of the iGaming industry founded in 2008, and winner of EGR B2B Awards ‘2016 White Label Partner of the Year‘. On the negative end, it’s licensed in Curacao, which tends to raise a few flags in terms of responsibility.
However, the operator’s longevity, combined with the fact that Wild Slots also carries a reputable license from the Maltese Gaming Authority, is a much more positive sign.
How Do They Compare To Industry Vets?
The real question here is how these new Canadian casinos for 2017 stack up to the iGaming industry’s oldest and most respected operators? I can’t think of any more distinguished brand than Royal Vegas, the flagship of the Fortune Lounge Group.
Royal Vegas was launched at the turn of the millennium, long before the first smartphones and tablets came along. In all that time – more than 15 years – this brand has risen to the very top of the iGaming ladder, and they did it by focusing on innovation and giving customers exactly what they wanted – not by trying to impress player with numbers, integrating as many software platforms as they could get their hands on.
The online casino supplies a massive selection of games from Microgaming, and recently brought Evolution’s live dealer casino games into the fold. The games are available for download or instant play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, optimized for all major operating systems (even Ubuntu!). They also supply a steady flow of promotions for new, existing and VIP members.
Royal Vegas holds a prestigious licence from the Kahnawake Gaming Commission of Canada, allowing them to accept all players from jurisdictions where online gambling is not prohibited.
What does all that mean? It means that when a new payer signs up and makes a deposit with this operator, they have 16 years worth of confidence supporting the knowledge that their financial and personal information will be kept secure, that their payouts will be honored, and that the operation simply won’t pack up and disappear one day.
Sad to say, that’s the risk you run with any new Canadian casinos in 2017. But with a seasoned industry leader like Royal Vegas, there’s simply nothing to worry about… aside from who’s making dinner, because you’ll be too busy holding down the sofa as you spin the reels or toss chips at the blackjack tables on your Android smartphone or Apple iPhone.
Royal Vegas Canada has been our editor’s #1 pick for three consecutive years ! Great compatibility of course (iphones, mobiles and tablets) but also an exciting range of games and promotions. Excellent support teams and quick cashouts… What else to ask for ?
