Getting into gambling is exciting. Like all things new, there will be a small learning curve. As you play, you will discover more and more about etiquette, gaming, betting, and more. To get you started, take a look at these common questions new players ask us most.

1. What are casino chips made of?

Most casino chips are compression moulded out of a composition of clay, chalk, and sand. The process is a trade secret and is slightly different with every manufacturer.

Every casino has their own set which may include RFIDs, special art, audible taggants, and custom moulded inlay. These features are what make counterfeit chips nearly impossible to produce, although it has been tried hundreds of times before.


2. Which casino makes the most money?

It’s not actually possible to say which casino makes the most money because these companies are private and do not release their profits.

It’s safe to say that any of the casinos that have been in business for several years, or decades, are doing very well.

What that also means is that players who play at these sites can be guaranteed on-time payments, hassle free deposits, better games, and even larger progressive jackpots.


3. Do I have to pay tax on casino winnings?

It depends on where you are a resident or citizen of. In general, Canadian players do not have to pay any tax on casino winnings, including those from online casino sites.

This legislation could change though, so make sure you keep up to date and follow the rules and legalities of gambling in Canada.


4. Are casino games fair?

Yes, as long as you are playing at a reputable site, you can feel peace of mind in knowing the games are safe and fair.

Any well-known casino will use software from renowned gaming companies like Microgaming, NetEnt, IGT, and others. They build every game with random number generators (RNGs), which makes their outcomes completely unpredictable – and therefore fair.

On top of this, third party auditors like eCOGRA or The UK Gambling Commission regulate online casinos to ensure they are safe to play at.


5. Are casino employees allowed to gamble?

In general, both online and offline casinos do not allow their employees to gamble on any of the games offered by the business.

If an online casino is part of a larger group, that employee will likely not be able to play on any of the owned sites. Unless they have signed a special contract, casino employees will be able to gamble at an online site or land-based facility that has no affiliation with their workplace, though.
