Departure From Canada For NetEnt

Net Entertainment, the popular provider of online games to casinos all over the world, has announced that they will no longer be servicing Canadian outlets. This is due to the questionable legality of online gambling in Canada. While the Canadian government have not decreed a ban, they have not endorsed it either – so online gambling is considered outside of the law in Canada.

Who Will Be Affected?

There are three online casinos that will feel the impact of NetEnt’s decision to leave Canada – Guts Casino, Rizk Casino, and Betspin Casino. Although all three casinos will continue to operate on Canadian soil, they will go through some alterations.At Rizk Casino, players have been able to enjoy a free welcome spin on the Wheel of Rizk – this will no longer be an option for iGamers. Previously, Guts Casino players got 10 spins for no cost at all on the Piggy Riches game – this is no longer available. Betspin won’t be able to provide Canadian players with a previous free 100 spins, part of the original welcome package.Departure From Canada For NetEnt

Following The Trend

The team at NetEnt are not alone in their decision to leave Canada, as other organisations have also made the move. William Hill, the online sports betting giant, had a customer base in British Columbia, but decided to stop operating there. PayPal has called a halt to protection online transactions for online wagering all over Canada.

No Gambling Legislation In Canada

It is believed that Net Entertainment, William Hill and PayPal have pulled out of Canada because of the fact that online gambling is not legislated. This means that providing online wagering services to Canadian citizens is somewhat of a risk that these organisations aren’t prepared to take.Guts Casino, Betspin and Rizk Casino will still continue to operate in Canada. Although NetEnt’s departure is a loss, these online casinos can still be accessed – and there remains a wide range of popular games.
