IP blocks, same for Evolution, one can play the other cant. Red tiger and Yggdrasil we don't offer. Thunderkick and Blueprint are through SG and SG has canada as restricted. You can play Play n Go though :)

What does that first sentence mean, Evolution? one and not the other?

But why can I play TK and blueprint elsewhere? For eg. Sportingbet casino, is it because they don't have an updated licence?

Evolution is a game provider. Thunderkick and Blueprint are offered through SG/Nyx, they restrict canada. If you can play them elsewhere they have a direct integration.

@jumboshrimp L&L use SG to load BTG/Blueprint etc - the 3 you probably see are Microgaming loaded and BTG asked them to block Canada awhile back.

Our government does have some sort of a deal with SG/NYX because they are the provider of our Land based casinos.

Edit: Its early in the morning I replied while reading page one lol - @L&L-Jan explained haha

Happy Friday!

Of note: some casino's use alternate loaders to avoid location blocking

All of the Direx brands use something called QTECH, I've seen many site loading with Leander and there was one other one that I think BMLGroup uses.

I'm not sure if Casinos have a choice to use these though.

Thanks Helafast. I don't play at land-based, I wonder what the blueprint games are set at and thanks in advance gov't.
Any advice sent vis a vis pm on what you appear to be winning on would be appreciated:cheers:

Can anyone explain how a casino can integrate directly. Is it because I am using a satellite dish and they can block my ip address. I can't use playolg'Just for the kids' casino through my ISP because they can't verify my address virtually, so being canadian I still can't play shit.

At least I can still play some megaways, just not BTG.

Hello helafast and all:

I am also in Ontario and I too have the same problem with BTG games. There is a whole world of games we can not see (including anything online by Scientific Games). I don't have a definitive answer on this but I do know this:

- IGT has not run the OLG for sometime. Scientific Games took over running to site.

- There still are lots of IGT games on PLAY OLG

- Scientific Games has many more games available now.

- There are currently exactly 100 games here now.

- Scientific Games is licensing several games from BTG. So far RAGIMG RHINO MEGAWAYS.

- Beetlejuice NEGAWAYS is in testing.

Contact me ... we can talk more: TheShamusOfSlots @ gmail.com

I gave been on You Tube 10 years and on the internet over 15 years!

Take care folks! /\/\/\/\ the Shamus /\/\/\/\

So all the casinos I’ve been playing those “Lovely Games TM” has been removed for me. Is there any other place someone is aware that they are still available?

They are gone sadly. @Big Time Gaming believes that adding them potentially to a provincial casino means they are adding them to all of Canada, which is obviously not true. It would be like having a deal with New South Wales and when many of the other states of Australia didn't have provincial casinos.

To my knowledge, only 3 provinces have government run online casinos. BC and Quebec already have a "few" BTG games and their sites are leaps and bounds ahead of what PlayOLG has to offer. Given the state of the world right now, the last thing the province is interested in is upgrading the casino - to be honest they would probably get a lot of bad press if they did.

So I hazard a guess we've seen the last of @Big Time Gaming for at least a few years and even if they do add them to the Ontario online casino - those who live in the other provinces without online casinos will not be able to play.

I really wish they would reconsider their stance, especially right now. Online casinos are the last priority of government right now as they fight the pandemic.

If I say "pretty please", is there a chance? ;)

@Big Time Gaming does not care about one of the biggest markets for his business. It is sad as if it were my business I would care more but they are rolling in the money which nothing wrong with that as it is great to see a business start and be successful.

Just a little more respect for Canadian players would be nice.
