Learn about Texas Holdem in Canada
Poker in Canada is thriving, as we host numerous national and international competitions every year. We also boast some homegrown professionals such as Chris Kruk and our local “femme fatale” Ema Zajmovic.
More About us and our guide
Our guide had an initial emphasis on banking and player deposits. We thoroughly studied the compatibility of Canadian debit cards with the various gaming brands. After all, if you can’t deposit, you can’t play, it’s as simple as that. We then branched out into newer modalities of payment such as pay by phone bill or virtual visa. And with the current trend of iGaming leveraging blockchain, we launched a cryptocurrency section last year. Bitcoin is an exciting and emerging development in gaming that we want to closely follow. Our editors created a list of the canadian banks which support crypto transactions. And we even spun a new authoritative article on the best ways to purchase bitcoin via debit card.
As our second act, we want to help you find good (read: “profitable”) games to play. To achieve this, we painstakingly list every variation of Canada’s most popular games, all the while researching their respective histories and offering strategy advice and tips. You might not realize it, but you can lower the house edge at many games, such as blackjack and craps. For the latter, we recommend a simple betting pattern like 3 point molly. And what’s so interesting is that you can also make money from the “meta-game”. For example, did you know you can earn money playing chess – mostly via streaming on Twitch ? This modern diversity of income streams as a gamer is a great subject of research for us.
More about our focus demographic
Gambling is one of the biggest industries in the world, but it’s also one of the most unique. This is an industry that enjoys just as much success during times of prosperity as it does during financial downturns. It is an industry that offers the consumer the chance to win big money, but always profits nonetheless. In Canada, the gambling industry is in even more of a unique position, because it exists to the north of a country that tightly regulates the industry, yet it is heavily influenced by the regulations of countries like the United Kingdom, which have some of the most relaxed laws in the world.
Outside of Canada, there are many people who assume that gambling is as restricted here as it is in the US. But that’s not true. Far from it in fact. Because while the laws aren’t as relaxed as they are in the UK, gambling—and online gambling—is legal and widely available. There have been suggestions that this might change, and those rumors have formed an ominous cold that has hung over the industry. But they have existed for many years and nothing has changed yet, nor will it likely change in the future.
That’s because gambling is a huge business in Canada. It is true that online gambling tends to draw money out of a country and into tax havens. But Canada is a little different. There are authorities that regulate and control the industry in certain regions, making sure all of the money goes through them. And when you consider that the biggest online gambling company in the world (Amaya) is Canadian, this industry will always benefit the country’s coffers in one way or another.
If you’re still a little confused about the status of online gambling, then you won’t be for long. On DebitCardCasino.ca we make it our goal to clarify these complicated online gambling laws. Far too many Canadians don’t understand the gambling laws in their own country, and we don’t think that’s right. We also clearly show you which Canadian banks allow online gambling. We also have a handy directory of great resources for Canadian gamblers.
Gamers are fed conflicting information from their peers and even from government officials. They are fed confusing information from casinos and affiliate sites only interested in their bank balance. And when they try to read up on the gambling laws, the only information they can find relates to the US and not to Canada.
This is a Canadian site for Canadian gamblers. The laws we discuss all relate to this country and the casinos and sports books mentioned all accept players from here. It is our hope that this will make life easier for Canadian gamblers.
If you are French reader, please read our francophone section. We offer details for Quebec based players, discuss laws, deposit options and relevant laws. In February of 2019, we introduced an exciting new Canadian-French section on card gaming , everything from board games to popular card games such as Canadian salad or Euchre .
And that’s it. So, take a look around. And be sure to bookmark us and check back regularly to discover new specialty bets, new bonuses codes and different deposit options.
