by Mark

Gambling is one of the most common pass times around the world. While it is legal in many countries, and has a sturdy online presence, there are many parts of the world where there are strict laws concerning gambling. Not every city on this planet is a Vegas after all! Canada is one such country where this much favored pass time is permitted but strictly regulated by well defined laws. What makes it slightly confusing is that there is no single law for gambling in this alpine country and each of its ten provinces and three territories have slightly different versions of the law. So here's a look at the gambling laws in Canada and how it affects your presence at your beloved casinos.

Legalized gambling in Canada


In Canada, commercial casino operations and racetracks to smaller bingo halls, Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs), slot machines and ticket lotteries are all considered legal. There are no penalties and fines to be paid if you wish to indulge in any of these forms of gambling.

However, as long as you are not involved in any illegal betting house or gambling centers you are nowhere in the wrong.
