Canada is home to one of the fastest growing online casino industries in the world. Recent economic reports show that online gambling has helped fund various governmental projects in many cities in the country. Just as importantly, though, online casinos have also boosted the profile of traditional casinos and gambling venues in Canada, too.
The most reputable online casinos in Canada all have a wide selection of gambling games, excellent graphics, different gameplay options, and amazing free bonus opportunities. At the moment, the four most popular casino software companies in Canada are Playtech, RTG, and Microgaming. Most of the online casinos in Canada are supported by the aforementioned software firms.
More about Microgaming
Based out of the United Kingdom, Microgaming has been creating digital gambling games and building online casinos since 1994. One thing that sets Microgaming apart from other gaming firms is that the company’s software designers have designed games in a number of different software languages. The company has designed games in Java, HTML, and Adobe Flash.
Microgaming also understands that Canadian gamblers are using all different types of devices to access their favorite virtual casinos. All of Microgaming’s recently released games are compatible with Apple products, Android devices, and Windows software.
Playtech Propels Canadian Casinos Forward
Another mainstay in the Canadian casino market is Playtech. Like Microgaming, Playtech is based out of the United Kingdom. Playtech is similar to Microgaming in that the company makes their own casino games in-house, as well as helps online casino websites build their very own customized gambling interfaces.
Playtech believes that the future of online gaming in Canada will be integrated with social media. The company’s social gaming products are a first step in bringing together the best elements of virtual gambling and social media for Canadian betting enthusiasts.
Interactive gambling chat rooms, video poker, and live card tournaments are all examples of how Playtech is combining social media with gaming. These social media products are available in both French and English, making these unique interfaces ideal for bilingual gamblers in Canada.
RTG Leaves a Mark in Canada
Another popular company in the world of Canadian online casinos is RTG. RTG, which stands for Realtime Gaming, is a great choice for Canadian gamblers who are looking to download casino software directly onto their computer.
Downloadable casino software is a more time-honored approach to online gambling. Although most Canadians are content to gamble on a casino’s website, downloading RTG’s software directly to your desktop eliminates the possibility that the software might crash while a player is placing his or her bets.
RTG also provides many of Canada’s gaming websites with Flash-based software. Some of the games available on RTG’s Flash software include Caribbean 21, craps, blackjack, and themed slot machines.
