• Canadian Players Banned from Certain Online Casinos

    23 September 2010

    Could all the legal online gambling action involving Canada lead to some online casinos to drop Canadian players? This could be one explanation to the sudden emails sent out by Bwin Interactive, Paddy Power and Casino Club announcing they will no longer take Canadian players effective Sept. 24th 2010. Another interesting development is that all these casinos run the Boss Media software.

    There is no explanation in the email about why other than citing “new regulations” as the cause. Speculation is that Boss Media may have been contacted by the Canadian government and asked to take this step. So far Canadians will be unable to download and play the games on these three casinos but will be able to play the no-download flash versions. It is thought that others online casinos will soon follow suit in banning Canadian players.

    The emails are structured different by convey the same message. Bwin said:

    “We regret to inform you that, due to the introduction of new regulations, operations of the Download Casino will cease as of 24.09.2010. There is good news, though! You can continue to enjoy your favourite games as normal in the bwin Instant Play Casino. And to make the transition even sweeter, we’ll be offering you a 100 percent Welcome Bonus. Get ready to switch now.”

    Paddy Power and Casino Club delivered the same email:

    “We regret to inform you that due to the new regulations of the British Columbia Lottery Corporation, Loto-Québec and the Atlantic Lottery Corporation, online gaming products in Canada are prohibited. Unfortunately we are required to add Canada to our list of excluded countries. Players from Canada will no longer be permitted to play at Casino Club starting September 24th, 2010.”

    It now seems that the Canadian owned online casinos now have a little less competition from the private sector. If you have been affected by this ban and are looking for a new casino we highly recommend Spin Palace.
