Yes, Rizk and probably GUTS were the first to remove Next Gen and Unibet blocked real play on their site back in December when I went on my final runs with Net Ent. Not a big fan of Next Gen but it's frustrating that Canadians are being disallowed from playing certain slot providers due to greed or silly rules that nobody really enforces. Still, people in Canada are winning huge here. I'm sure you saw omgcezwho dominate those Book of Ra clones.

By the way, I can't message you. Can you clean out your inbox a bit, please?

Nextgen has been trying to shutdown Canada for close to a couple years now, some casinos abide and others don't seem to care.

Yes, Casino Room blocked us some time ago. They had Aristocrat branded Next Gen slots such as Lucky 88, Red Baron and Choy Sun Doa that I played frequently. Now, no reason to ever deposit there or at Unibet. They have nothing left. Leo Vegas has blocked 95% of them as well. They're still at VSO, Slots Million and Bet Victor.

Just want to note that PlayOLG actually has a pretty good match bonus available until the end of the month, if you haven't logged in recently. They never seem to send an email or even update their facebook page.

100% match up to $250 with 10x rollover on the bonus only. Pretty sure cash balance is withdrawable if you hit early and want to forfeit the bonus.

If they are gonna block all these providers...you would think that they would improve the quality of their own online websites.

I just went on the Quebec website spaces jeux and I think they are ten if not 15 years behind....

...you also now have the option to buy web money from loto Quebec outlets. When I went to buy 20$ worth cuz I wanted try out the games online...they didn't know what webmoney was...

Do any of these government people do any research and check what the other online casinos are doing?

That is a pretty good bonus. Even with their shitty pile of game I would have taken it and played the 3-4 slots they have that are actually half decent but I usually play a bit an dget annoyed at the terrible game and go self ban for 3 months until they get better slots lol. So I dont think id be able to take this.

I would play but unable to deposit as they don't take debit from Alterna unless it's changed.
Find the choice of Slots sucks....is there really any slot games they have have any potential....what are the best ones to play. Does any one know any new news on the new Quebec bill 74 maybe online for us will get better if it gets thrown out court...when is it going to court?

I'm no fan of PlayOLG.ca but I like playing with a bonus. Perhaps it's time to play some Quick Hits Platinum, Stinkin' Rich, Dragon's Temple and Jewel of the Dragon and get my first ever $100+ cashout there. Pretty sad that at the Euro casinos, I've had a dozen cashouts of $150-$700 but none at Kathleen's.

At least with the bonus, you can clear it with your real funds. Unless they changed the rules.

It goes to court again in a few weeks. I suspect at some point its going to get thrown out. Basically no one supports this bill even the internet providers. And CRTC holds more power than provincial law and they are against it.

Click the promotions tab... and the promo code is "match".

I don't see it unless I'm logged in. Perhaps it is account exclusive? But that seems a little sophisticated for them to be honest.

Apparently it only works if you got the e-mail. I didn't so I can't take advantage. The worthless support desk just gives me gobbledygook as always. No big loss.

Thanks maybe we will get Netent games back.. Why do not more casinos get licence through Kahnawake gaming commission? if any one can answer that as they are one of the best and I'm sure the government do not want to push them around.

It would be Interesting who and how they came around to the design and game providers for PlayOlg obvious they didn't get any feed back from there players. I read some where that the BC online casino was looking in to adding Netent that would be cool if Playolg.ca did the same.

Playolg is super cheap and greedy. The BC one and Quebec one have some WMS. I saw someone on twitch play rhino, montezuma etc from B.C. one.

This is a very sad province, lockinlove. They need a thorough cleaning of Queen's Park as everybody is untrustworthy there. No wonder voter turnout is low come election time. Kathleen Wynne and her 15% approval rating plus incompetent PC and NDP leaders? They can't even run AGCO properly. They only make money because 80 year old stroke survivors keep putting their money into their 85% slots without questions and that ruins it for everybody because they make up the majority of gamblers at the OLG casinos. That's who they cater to, the aged. They screwed some guy out of $10,000 because he signed some paper self-excluding himself years ago and he didn't remember.

Someday the whole thing will crumble in a bloody heap because they pissed off too many people.

Is that what her approval rating is at? Lol still too high it should be zero considering what they have done. I think they are running out of things to raise the prices on but im sure they will find something.

It turned out that I was generous in regards to her approval rating. It's 12%. I do agree it should be 0%. Less than zero, if you ask me.

The PlayOLG.ca code didn't work, Jasmine.

Anyway, deposited $50. Got destroyed in Cleopatra and couldn't hit the bonus in that poorly optimized game.

Switched over to Prowling Panther and got a nice near 120x hit with Queens and got into Profitland. Immediately cashed out my original $50.

Played a number of games with the $27 profit and got it to $50, though it was down to almost $12 at one point. Had to wait until after midnight because this piece of shit casino doesn't allow multiple withdrawals a day. So, I made $50 tonight. You take what they give you or you will be sorry.

Bally slots weren't working at all, though I played some QH Platinum when it actually loaded.

When are these idiots at AGCO going to fix their joke of a casino, add WMS and go mobile? Don't they want business? Just sad.

I really quite like the Sherlock Holmes game. I've had some pretty big hits on it, especially if you can get high multiplier in base game. Plays a little more like online slots elsewhere which makes it a little more enjoyable too.

There is zero loyalty for play, except for maybe a birthday or xmas chip.

Far too often the Bally slots won't even load, and no mobile version at all, which in this day and age is outdated.

Yeah, haven't played any of Sherlock. Perhaps still spooked by my bad Jeopardy and Ghostbusters sessions is why I avoid licensed IGT everywhere.
