Caesars Windsor, OntarioCasinos.co is based at 1705 Avenue Rd, North York, Ontario. The province of Ontario is one of Canada’s most important gambling hubs.

Regulated gambling in Ontario took off in earnest in the early 1990s, with the opening of the first commercial casino, the Casino Windsor, now known as Caesars Windsor. It wasn’t a universally popular decision, but even though many people were opposed to the idea of a casino in their backyard, the Windsor became a huge success.

Initially forecast to make around CA$150 million a year, it now makes nearly 20 times that amount, and remains a hugely popular gambling destination for many Ontarians as well as visitors and tourists.

Casino Windsor’s success spurred on other operators to open their own casinos. Some of the best-known land casinos in Ontario include Casino Rama (Ontario’s only First Nations-run commercial casino, and the largest First Nations casino in Canada), Casino Niagara, which is located in the world-famous Niagara Falls, and the Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort, which has become a prominent landmark in its own right.

Toronto Building Canada Skyline OntarioOntario now has a total of 71 casinos located throughout the province, according to the World Casino Directory.

Ontarians don’t just tolerate casinos anymore – they love them. Statistics report that 8 out of 10 Ontarian residents gamble on a regular basis, pumping over $1.3 billion into commercial casinos every year. Lotteries are also still very popular, making twice as much money annually as the commercial casinos do.

However, while land-based casinos remain the preferred choice for many, lots of Canadians are now also discovering the pleasure of gambling online from the comfort of their own home or even during a boring commute.

Online gaming provides the adrenaline rush and excitement of gambling in a land casino, an endless choice of games and venues where one can play, and great opportunities for winnings.

How do we rate online casinos?

Each casino is different, but there are some key elements which are common to all. When looking for the best casinos for Canadian players, we tend to look out for the following elements.

  • legitimate licenses
  • inclusive of Canadian players
  • great range of online casino games
  • awesome customer support
  • fast withdrawal periods
  • positive player reviews

There is plenty of other things that go in between, but those are the core features. Casinos with all or most of these elements are very likely to gain a high ranking from us.
