In the past few months a number of Canadian provinces, including Quebec, pulled out from online casino companies. And it feels like internet gambling won’t be legalized in Canada, as new regulations remain unclear and questions – unanswered.
Thus Bwin’s players from Canada received an email notification that Bwin’s service is no longer available in their area as a result of new regulations (details were not provided). However, the players could still access Bwin’s online casinos through Instant Play.
Paddy Power is another company pulling out Boss Media download casino from the Canadian market. Club Casino’s gamblers also received emails informing them of new regulations by Atlantic Lottery Corporation, Lotto Quebec and British Columbia Lottery Corporation which means that online casino gambling is prohibited in Canada. So, starting September 24, 2010, Canadians are no longer able to play at Casino Club.
