We're here to enhance the online gambling experience of Canadian gamers. We do this by highlighting the best online casinos with exclusive bonuses, helpful game guides and our ample free games library.

Our story

Back in 2011, we were a small group of friends spread across Canada, bonded by a love of online gaming. Regular online poker nights became our way of staying in touch whilst having fun. We often discussed our solo gaming experiences, and a common hot topic was how difficult it was to come by a trustworthy casino with reliable reviews. Rather than continue to lament, we decided to come up with a solution – and with that, OnlineCasino.ca was born.

We started by coming up with a set of criteria to review casinos by, including things like safety and security, game choice and quality, software, support, and mobile capabilities. In time, we've been able to build out the site to include “how to play” guides, free casino game options, casino reviews and legislator information. We aim to get bigger and better, with all-important input from our users.

Who are we?

We're a diverse team made up of poker pros, slots specialists, and casino industry experts. Though we differ in our expertise, we're very much aligned in our passion for online gambling and user-first content. Meet the names and faces behind the scenes:
