International Gamer's Guide to Canada's Gaming Scene

The rise of gaming as a legitimate form of adult entertainment has been spectacular in the last decade. It now encompasses everything from the pick-up-and-play appeal of casual gaming to professional e-sports and even online casino gaming. Today, an estimated 1.1 billion people play online games, and this number continues to grow.

As the speed of computer processors continues to increase, and more of the world gains access to fast and reliable internet connections, all forms of gaming continue to advance. Canada in particular, is a country that’s embracing modern gaming. It has a thriving e-sports scene, some of the world’s top game developers, and is a country that supports casino gaming culture in its various forms.

If you’re unaware of the gaming scene in Canada, this article will shed light on this growing industry in the country. There will be a discussion on the rise of online casinos in Canada. These complement the impressive selection of land-based casinos and offer adult gamers a diverse selection of exciting games of chance and strategy. In addition, consideration will be given to the healthy and growing e-sports scene in Canada, where some of the world’s top gamers are based.

 

The rise of online casinos

Canada is a place that welcomes many forms of gambling. There are estimated to be over 19.3 million active gamblers in the country. These gamers are well served by an estimated 89 land-based casinos that offer a diverse selection of slot machines and table-based games, such as poker and baccarat.

However, it’s important to note that the online casino scene in Canada is also flourishing. There are around 2,000 dedicated online casino sites that can be accessed in Canada. This number continues to grow as the industry evolves and new players seek adult entertainment online.

Many Canadians use their smartphones or tablets to play online at spincasino.com/ca/. Here they can find an enticing mix of slot machine games such as Thunderstruck II and Wheel of Wishes. These games are ideal for players who seek to enjoy casino action that purely revolves around luck rather than strategy. For those who seek an element of skill in their gameplay, card games such as Premier Blackjack and Switch Baccarat fulfill this need.

Canadian gamers are aware of the need for secure gaming environments whilst they play and make deposits. As such, these sites are highly regulated and typically feature the latest encryption methods across their sites and at the payment screens.

 

Pro e-sports in Canada

In recent years, Canada has gained a reputation for being one of the major players in global e-sports. One of the most famous e-sports teams is Luminosity Gaming. This is currently the most successful team in the country and has a total prize fund of over $1.3 million from professional tournaments.

Popular e-sports games in Canada include the multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game Dota 2 and the multiplayer shooter Fortnight. Many of the Canadian e-sports teams will compete in international events on these titles, where total prize pots can routinely exceed $1 million. In short, the country has quickly built a reputation for gaming excellence and hosts a thriving e-sports scene that continues to grow.
