Was just informed VS is no longer allowing Canadians to play BTG games at their site.
This is the very first I hear of it.... it is a sad, sad day! I have been unable to load any BTG for a couple days, was really hoping it was simply a technical issue....but sadly...

Title edited upon request as this issue applies to all Canadian-facing casinos, not solely Videoslots! Thanks D

Hello everyone,

This restriction is being enforced by the providers, we will make sure to remove all unavailable content and we hope to be able to offer them to you in the future.

Best regards,
Team Videoslots.

Games don't work on casino casino as well. I'm pissed I know its not the casino fault but Videoslots won't be getting as much from me and why they don't inform there players its always slap in the face approach. Merry Christmas Videoslots

35 providers were removed, via NYX......everything from BTG to Blueprint to Lightning Box games....and many many more. It's like half the games vanished overnight for Canadians.....why does this keep happening??

yep BTG looks to have now put a block on all Canadians on all sites. Just checked 4 other sites and all blueprint and btg blocked everywhere.

Pathetic.

Whats left? MG and playngo and yggdrasil?

So you are saying 35 providers up and decided to block Canadians at the same time??? Something isn't adding up

Well, never had much recent success on BTG. I guess people in Ontario will have to wait until PlayOLG adds all those slots like they did at Espace Jeux and PlayNow. We were never allowed to play them in the first place but at least we got a good long run on them.

Guess I’ll have to play more at the locals and cut back on the online.

A shame as I am on a winning streak. $100 profit at Lac Leamy, $150 at VS, another $50 at VS and even $75 playing Raging Rhino at PlayOLG.

Part of the contract in place requires these software providers block all Canadians from playing their games elsewhere so we are forced into the government casinos. In order for the contract not to be broken and ensures providers like BTG get their money, they must block us.

I guess instead of blocking Quebec and BC since their games are available in their casinos, they just put a blanket block on the entire country. Which means people from Ontario will have to wait months, if not years for the idiots at playolg to sort their shit out as usual.

Whats left for us. MG, thunderkick, amatic, gamomat, merker, playngo and yggdrasil?

lol my wallet cannot afford to play from those limited providers only. RIP online for me I guess.

It obviously blows how providers can get pulled overnight like that, and though I'd probably pine for BTG I'd be far more devastated if MG went. What have they got, 2000 games? And a hell of a lot classics in there......Thunderkick I think are good too.

What have BTG got, 10? But overall there's no denying these fly-by-night legislations are simply a mess, and who's to say other providers won't be affected in time :eek2::(

I will have to message the btg rep as what happens to me now if I win the btg comp?

Omg I am so devastated. Worst year in my life and end it like this:(

Hi Bruinsdude,

We get those 35 Providers through SG Digital (Formerly NYX) this means all those Providers come under this Platform.

Br,
Team Videoslots.
:eek2:
so EVERY game provided by SG/Nyx is pulled? That's essentially 90% of all the slots I play at VS

@slotmaster

Probably sometime in 2020 when that new company takes over PlayOLG. Until then, we’ll have to wait for those NetEnt and SG Digital games to slowly trickle in (if they even bother) or move to British Columbia, Manitoba, Quebec or Scandinavia.

Sucks but I knew this day was coming. The government always wins.

Its over. I am sitting here thinking if I deposit what will I play. And I am coming up with basically...nothing. I liked variety..jump from a lil bit of mg, to btg, to yggdrasil, to nyx to blueprint. I will get very very bored playing playngo, yggdrasil, MG..I will also be VERY broke LoL

Well I always wanted to learn how to arm wrestle. So guess I will take that up instead of slots.

I wonder on which platform /cabinet...
There's a post I cant be arsed to check but if you were to look under BTGs profile posts it wasnt very far back
Hell, took me as long to type
:p
Here:
Hey @dionysus, in Canada, you can play our games at Lotto Quebec, at BCLC's playnow.com and later this year on OLG Casinos. As we have licenses with/pending most online legal jurisdictions for Canadian Government entities we cannot provide our games via any other brand/platform.

If you live in BC or Quebec you can play our games on espacejeux.com or playnow.com and soon on olg.ca

Hope that helps.

OLG will be getting a technical facelift this year from Bede Gaming.

Our RTP's are the same on BCLC and Lotto Quebec as they are in all our other jurisdictions, our games only have one RTP across the board. I find it odd that providers offer mixed RTP's as it's just not a player friendly practice. At the moment we are looking to place some of our content in Canadian land based casinos and the RTP will be the same as online too.

LOL..I though you of all people would be celebrating your divorce from Bonanza...:cheers:

Seriously though, it's a real pisser. :(

What with the UKGC, Germany and now Canada, the players have taken a real battering in 2018

This is what happens when so many games are supplied through one aggregator, as they are at many multiplatform sites. There's no demarcation so it's all or nothing. In many countries for example, Leander and other brands are delivered through the iSoftBet interface so if they go, so do all the other slots they offer under that license.

So not B&M yet then.. just exclusive with Canadian operators online for now. But I imagine SG will put them in to B&M. They almost certainly won't be at 96% or over then ;)
