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.

@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!
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.

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.

Thank goodness IGT not running OLG they are the worst of the worst. Actually PlayOLG at the moment is one of the worst online casinos not sure why BTG has made a deal with such crappy outfit but hey it's there choice guess they were sleeping behind the wheel when they made this deal. looks like they took the wrong turn. Sorry BTG your games are some of the best but you pissed off alot of Canadians with your stupid move to try to do a deal with Playolg...

Survivor Megaways has been added to Lotoquebec this morning. I appreciate the efforts put in to release these games hopefully they end up releasing the whole BTG library. However the game was extremely laggy it was unplayable...

Videoslots team posted on their forum BTG games may be returning for Canada end of August into Sept of this year on Videoslots.

This is the best news I heard all year, well at least for us Canadian gamblers that love BTG games.
Would be nice if BTG can confirm this or any other casino want to add to this, also would be interesting what turn of events led to this.

I would say for Canada we been lucky compared to other countries were certain games/casinos been banned.
We got Netent back and if we get BTG back that be the icing on the cake.

Has anyone checked out Playfallsview.com Fallsview casino new app, it's just for fun play, myself I haven't played but what is interesting is there is a lot of games like Netent, red tiger etc which I have never seen at any Ontario casino, is this a sign of big changes coming to Ontario casinos?

Correct me if I am wrong but a provider offering their portfolio to espacejeux or playolg means that they sign an exclusivity deal with them in that province so offering it to a casino considered illegal by them would probably risk their long term deal with the governement. Its not a coincidence that no online casino ever offered quebec residents the possibility to play IGT games. They have a similar deal with then since forever since every physical slot machine is spielo and/or IGT in quebec. Good old 92% low variance scum games. Since BTG havent been around for many many years like IGT, some wreckless casinos offered their games even after they started to provide games for loto quebec. At least softswiss were offering btg games via relax gaming. Skillsonnet didnt bother, nyx btg games until threats by local governement directly to btg;)

Did you notice that the SG games all show limited time now? I saw that this morning on my mobile app.

Maybe a change coming although I don't wanna see Rhino goo
