Curious if it is to get around some advertising law here in Canada, but Play Ojo have taken out tv spots, prime time too..... and the funny thing is the disclaimer that THIS IS NOT A GAMBLING website.
Interesting to see an overseas casino that isn't Casino Rewards advertising here. May have to give them a try. My initial impression of them wasn't great, spent quite a while on with CS but there was a clear language barrier, and I could not get simple info.

Anyone else from Canada having success and ease with this casino?

Have an account but don't think I ever played there. The disclaimer is most likely how they got around it, Like Pokerstars and Full Tilt and poker sites back in the day doing t.v. ads.

Yup, I see them all the time, along with Spin Palace, Partycasino and the occasional Jackpot City. The strange one I keep seeing is Maple Casino - Which I'm pretty sure isn't a casino. Wonder where they get the cash to advertise on primetime TV?

As for the "not a gambling website", pokerstars/party/full tilt got away with it because the .net versions of the website were just for play money.

Playojo and drueckglueck (wtf is that name anyways) are the two main casinos I play on. Never had an issue so far. The CS sucks though honestly if any issues arise I think you are better contacting @Krystal_EGO she’s a good rep.

I don't know for sure if PlayOJO charges a fee to deposit but I do know that a few others within the group do. Just be aware if you are not using interac there are fees that range from 2.5%-5% just to deposit.

yes fees for every deposit except etransfer no fees. but withdraw is the best i ever seen for a Canadian under 24hrs in bank account. i have made 3 withdrawals at ojo. biggest one in all my gambling iam a low roller. but hit for 3k 2 weeks ago. withdraw 1pm Toronto time in my bank account 4am next day. i thought vs was fast used to be but now take 2days to get still good only problem with ojo they strongly bug you to reverse their is no lock withdraw so for accredited casino i find that preditory my opinion.

For the rtp thing I think they increased it for example BoD went from 91 to 94. I might be wrong when in doubt you can always double check. They do have a great selection of games alot of btg and blueprints

It's common in German gambling slang and means loosely translated, being lucky when you press the "spin" button. Drueck - Spin, Glueck = Luck. :D

God knows what they would have made of Drück Glück then :eek2:

Drück actually doesn't mean spin as such but it goes back to the old gambling machines you can find in any pub and thousands of gambling halls. You could risk any win to go up on a ladder from let's say EUR0.20 to 50 free rounds and for that you pressed (press = drück) on the button (similar to the Merkur/Novomatic slot gambles, just that it was mostly all or nothing to get up the ladder). The thing stuck and people still say "Drück" today. :D

Playojo also advertise a lot in the UK on late night TV, decent site, associated are Slots Magic, Red Queens, EU Casino amongst others in the EGO license. Never had any aggro from them. Used to have a download interface on some of their casinos which was handy.

Finally took the plunge and gave them a try. While the deposit fees and lack of a full screen display were a bit off putting.....the games selection is out of this world for Canadians ;) Don't really understand the kickers and levels yet, but I will get there.

Late answer. but i forgot to check until now.
Playngo is running at 94% for me, and red tiger (the ones with jackpot added) as low as 92%.
It might be different depending on where you live tho.

94 is better than 91, but alot worse than 96,5 wich is the "normal" rtp.

I have nothing against them really, but for me, there are so many options to choose from wich have the same or better slot-selection, and does not use the reduced-rtp versions of the slots.
And since were not allowed bonuses anymore here in Sweden, theres really no reason for me to play there.

for canadians i could not ask for better selection of games cant play anywhere else. the level up takes time but random but always check my ojo rewards because you get cashback for every dollar you bet. wager free is the only casinos i look for. and only find 3 vs, ristzcasino, and ojo. like all 3 no bs yes even ristzcasino is so much better now they communicate with the players at least me. i used to have such hassle not now. and now gigadat etransfer got it back to 25$ still not 10$ but better than 50$ is great no fees.
