How We Review Canadian Poker Sites
Before we recommend any poker site or online casino, we review each site to confirm it meets our standards. We check out a range of details on your behalf, so you can feel confident that every site is a great place to play video poker:
It’s not hard to give the green light to regulated online gambling sites managed by Ontario
Lottery & Gaming, the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission, and any other Canadian gaming authority. However, we have to be extra vigilant when looking at offshore video poker game sites. We stick strictly to those licensed by respected gambling authorities. This is your best indication that a site adheres to fair play standards and will keep your details secure. As player safety is our top priority, licensing is a non-negotiable factor for us.
Range of Poker Games
Just as regular poker comes in several variants, such as Texas Hold’em and Omaha Hi-Lo, so too does video poker. Having access to different video poker variations will improve your experience and your skills. We also like to see plenty of other games available, such as those on slot sites, roulette, and blackjack.
We check out the promotions page to confirm that players can access a range of bonuses. A generous sign-up offer is always welcome, whether that’s a no deposit bonus or a matched deposit bonus. We also hope to see reload bonuses and freebies for existing players.
Most poker sites offer mobile versions, making it easy to play video poker for real money – or just for fun – whenever you like.
The best sites go the extra distance and offer players the chance to download a native mobile app. Boasting improved security, top-quality graphics, and push notifications for bonuses, well-oiled mobile apps get a big thumbs up from us.
A stop by the banking page is always on our to-do list. We ensure real money poker sites offer a good selection of trusted payment methods, including debit cards, e-wallets, online banking, and more. Deposit options should be free from fuss and allow for instant deposits. Payouts should be fast and free, too.
Solid FAQs can answer some of the most common questions you may have at a poker site, but when there’s a need to contact customer service, we expect to see several ways to get in touch.
Live chat is ideal, though attentive email, phone, and social media support are also appreciated.
