Responsible Gaming Index for Canadians

Compliance with all 8 standards of the RGC is necessary.

Canada is fast assuming the proportions of a major gaming destination for players the world over. And with so many top-class casinos and slots venues adorning the landscape, players are able to partake in big-jackpot gaming with lots of variety.

Responsible Gaming Practices

The consumer watchdog protection mechanism - the Responsible Gambling Council - has instituted a series of checks and balances to ensure that Canadian gambling operators are meeting the stringent standards it has set out. The Toronto-based organization is headed by Jon Kelly.

This non-profit company has been maintaining world-class standards for Canada's casinos for almost 30 years. All casinos and slots venues across Canada wishing to apply for accreditation will first have to be reviewed and approved by the RGC. This process takes anywhere from 4 - 6 months to complete.

Requirements for Gambling Operators in Canada

  • Accreditation requires a score of 70% minimum
  • Canadian Gambling Laws must approve the RGCs work
  • Accreditation is only valid for 3 years

Losing Points is Easy

Casinos and gambling dens with free alcohol and 24/7 ATMs will lose points as these are irresponsible gaming operators. It's also vital that responsible gaming messages are placed on machines.

Quality Gaming Online

Top drawer gaming operators across Canada include the likes of Maple Casino, Europa Casino and EUcasino. On the poker front, Canadians love Titan Poker and CoolHand Poker.
