There are hundreds of fully licensed Canadian online casinos to choose from today. In fact, there are so many choices that some players often find it hard to choose which online casino to sign up to.

When looking for a trustworthy Canadian online casino, here are some important things you should always be looking for.

How to choose a trustworthy Canadian online casino

The most important things you should be asking yourself before signing up to an online casino are the following questions:

  • Who owns and operates the casino, and is it a reputable operator with a good reputation?
  • Where is the online casino licensed? The best online casinos are licensed by top-tier licensing authorities
  • What is the website security like? For example, does it have SSL encryption certificates?
  • Does it look after new players and have a good loyalty program/low wagering requirements?
  • Do you know if the games have been made by fully licensed and well-known online casino software providers?
  • Is the player support up to scratch, and do they have good customer service?
  • Do they accept secure payment methods?
  • Does the casino work well on smartphones, tablets, desktop computers, and laptops?

What to remember when looking for a reputable online casino

Never register an account at an online casino that’s controlled by an operator with a terrible reputation, and never sign up to an unlicensed casino site. The top-tier licensing jurisdictions are where many of today’s best online casinos, such as the official William Hill online casino, are licensed.

These authorities are based in Malta (the Malta Gaming Authority), the UK (Gambling Commission), and Gibraltar (the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority).

Also, always look for the padlock item in the website’s address bar to ensure it’s a safe site protected by SSL encryption certificates and that the domain starts with https://.

To ensure the games are producing fair and realistic results, remember to look for trusted sites that have games from industry-award-winning online casino software providers and game development studios, such as:

  • Playtech
  • Evolution Gaming
  • iSoftBet
  • Pragmatic Play
  • Play’n GO
  • Blueprint Gaming
  • Big Time Gaming
  • Live 5
  • Games Global

The games developed by these companies produce fair and realistic outcomes/results, and they are regularly tested by one or more globally renowned online casino testing agencies.

If you’re looking for live dealer games, many of today’s best titles are brought to you by Evolution Gaming, Pragmatic Play, and Playtech. In other words, stick to casino sites with live dealer games from these three companies.

What else should I be looking for in a trustworthy online casino?

You also want to make sure that the casino accepts only tried and tested online payment solutions. In their cashier section, they should accept a variety of proven online payment solutions, including bank credit and debit cards, digital wallets (aka web wallets), one or two prepaid voucher cards, and bank transfers.

Finally, make sure the casino provides responsive, cheerful, and professionally trained player support. They should be easy to get in touch with, and at today’s best online casino sites, you can often get in touch with a friendly player support agent via toll-free telephone, email, and live chat.

Final note

Fortunately, there aren’t too many rogue casinos out there, but they do exist, so you should always be careful and avoid them at all costs.

This is why you should always think before signing up to any old casino site you may have randomly stumbled across and only ever play at reputable sites controlled by some of the biggest names from the iGaming industry.

If something doesn’t seem quite right with the website, then perhaps it’s best to avoid signing up and checking out the reviews first. If all of the reviews you read seem positive, you should have nothing to worry about.
