Received what I believe will be the first of many notifications from online casinos stating that they will no longer allow Ontario residents to deposit.

With the new Ontario license I assumed there would be some changes but really didn’t expect casinos to block us.

Anyone eise from Ontario receive any of these messages?

Holy crap I was excited about the new Igaming for Ontario but after seeing this can't say I'm happy. This will truly suck if we can only play Ontario online casinos kinda wish they left it the way it was. Guess we will find out April 4th. This going to be a blow to many casinos.
 
Might be just a coincidence but I’ve noticed on the softswiss casinos that searching by provider doesn’t display many of the popular providers (pragmatic, PNG etc).

Might be a fluke, might mean they are about to remove them all from us.
 
to be fair, they have bolstered their lineup with the likes of SG and Blueprint games, id say 130 games....but where is our beloved BTG and NetEnt?
 
one of the requirements to become part of the igaming Ontario is not to serve Ontario past April 6th (give or take a day or two).

If a casino plans to get an Ontario license and do allow players from Ontario past that date it could jeopardise their ability to get a license in the future...

I'm guessing whoever starts blocking access plans to get a license at some point likely soon....anyone else that allows access may never be able to get one
 
At least Ontario offers casinos the option to apply for a license, unlike our restrictive Australian government where its illegal for them to offer us gaming without them having a license but there is no way to actually apply for a license (catch 22).

If it means that we can play all operators again on a licensed site where we will be guaranteed to be paid every time instead of our currently Curacao options I will gladly take it even with a slightly reduced RTP hit if that's what it takes.

Been burned countless times by rogue Curacao sites where their vague bonus terms are only applied when you get a big withdrawal (the group that runs the reskinned gw sites i'm looking at you) that ill gladly sacrifice a little bit of RTP (as long as its 96 > 94 drop and not 96 > 88 or something ridiculous like that) to eliminate the gambling on the gambled winnings (guessing if they will actually pay it or not).
 
I will still play sites that don't plan to join (which i guess may now go from gray zone to illegal in Ontario) but for sure will play sites licensed in Ontario mostly because I should be able to play games that are currently blocked here that OLG doesn't carry. OLG has a horrible amount of games available so this will be good.
