OK, can the Canadian members here tell me which developers you can (legitimately!) play in casinos that take your play?

I know you can play BTG, there were issues for a while with Netent etc.

So which developers can you categorically state are available to Canada-based online players?

Thanks very much if you can help. :thumbsup:

BTG - yes if loaded through Relax Gaming
ELK and Thunderkick - Yes if they load by different means than SG

The main ones geographically blocked are:
Anything that loads with SG (WMS/Bally/NextGen/Barcrest)
Novomatic
inspired
IGT
Some sites block Merkur/Gamomat
This varies from casino to casino and license to license.

I really want to try Novomatic games, since I can’t even seem to play those ones with play money.

*Edit To ask if anyone knows why Novomatic is blocked in Canada?

I believe Greentube/Novo use primary licenses for each jurisdiction they operate in and don't supply games through third-party platforms, only their own. So you won't see them in your land-based either? Hence you won't get the BTG scenario where they can't be played via SG, but can through Relax.

Pretty sure Greentube ( novo) is not available for Canada :) unless there is a very sneaky way I don't know about.

Sadly, I don’t know of any sneaky way. I guess VPN, but I’ve never wanted to risk trying that and wouldn’t know how to set it up lol

Novo is the best in blocking players, even players like @lotusch - has issues while being from Ireland. He can play a set of games and a few not. Really sad how strickt their GEO blocking is.

I really wish more cainos offered games outside the SG umbrella - so many good games I enjoy playing where the provider titelf doesnt give a toss
Dunno what SG's issue with Caanada is


we get SG games at our provincial land and online casino...so it's exclusivity...but they have blocked even the game providers we don't have in casinos like elk games...

Many sites have changed the loader for ELK, Blueprint, Thunderkick - they no longer load with SG and load with “QTech”
All games are playable for Canadians through QTech
I only know of one group which I dont play at
but feel free to pm me any others:p

Maybe L&L would consider offering these to their Canadian brethren outside of SG :D
