Players from Canada love online casinos, but there's a huge assortment to try and choose from. Is National Casino worth your time? Read our review to find out.
Here are some of the main features to consider for players from Canada.
Players from Canada signing up to National Casino have two deposit bonuses to review, one each for the first and second deposits a player makes. The initial deposit is a 100% match bonus up to CAD$500 and comes with 100 free spins for the slot Avalon: The Lost Kingdom. The second deposit bonus comes with a 50% match rate up to CAD$1,000 and 50 free spins for Johnny Cash. Both come with a 40x wagering requirement.
Unfortunately, at the time of review there is a lack of no deposit bonuses at National Casino. However, players from Canada should keep their eyes peeled as new promos and seasonal specials could see no deposit bonuses make an appearance in the future.
Although not a no deposit special offer, free spins are present (beyond those mentioned in the welcome bonus section of the review). Every Monday players can get up to 100 free spins, with the number available determined by deposit size (20 for CAD$25, 50 free spins for CAD$75, and 100 for CAD$125).
Forty separate providers contribute to the extensive range of games available to review at National Casino, with some of the biggest including Yggdrasil Gaming and Betsoft. The very large range of software providers means there's a fantastic variety of differing approaches to both gameplay and themes, so whether you prefer to go for games based on bonus mechanics or graphics there's almost certain to be something you'll like. In addition to picking games based on developer, players can sort according to categories such as new or popular games, with separate categories for blackjack and roulette.
At the time of review players from Canada can find great mythology and legendary games from Yggdrasil, such as Sherwood shenanigans courtesy of Robin Nottingham Raiders and terrifying Greek monstrosities in Golden Gorgon. Betsoft Gaming, meanwhile, offers would-be soccer stars the chance to score big time in Hat Trick Hero, or indulge in a Weekend in Vegas.
As a bonus, card sharks have two dozen different types of blackjack and baccarat to review and play (from multiple software studios), with the same number of roulette games on offer, including American and European variants.
National Casino can be accessed via iOS or Android devices but there's no specific information on the site regarding apps at the time of review.
Live casino fans have games from a quartet of providers (Atmosfera, LiveSlots, Lucky Streak, and Swintt) to play at the time of review, including ten different live roulette tables, with plenty of baccarat and blackjack options too, (and one keno game as a bonus).
As already mentioned, National Casino has a very large number of software studios contributing to its portfolio of games, with players able to review the creations of more than three dozen studios. The return to player (RTP) is the measure of the average return a player can expect from a slot game, while the house edge is used to determine the potential profit margin from table games. Bgaming's Elvis Frog has an RTP of 96% and sits pretty much in the middle of the RTP range of slots generally, offering a good but not outstanding rate of return. Yggdrasil's Wilhelm Tell is a little more generous at 97%, with Winterberries, by the same developer, just a touch lower at 96.7%.
While there is no precise RTP table on National Casino players can always find this information by reviewing software developer sites directly. When it comes to table games, blackjack and roulette both typically feature low house edges and offer the best chance of finishing in the black (review particular games for the precise figures). Be aware, however, that when using no deposit and other bonuses that table games sometimes contribute at lower rates than slots so be sure to check the fine print.
National Casino has a Hall of Fame page dedicated to celebrating past winners. This includes daily winners (likely in the thousands) and winners over the last week (at the time of review this featured two winners with wins exceeding 50,000 in the past week, and four with wins of more than 30,000). In addition, latest winners are constantly being refreshed on the left hand side.
When it comes to reviewing the all time list, however, there's a six figure fellow sitting at the top, having made $118,705.49 on the aptly named Caishen's Fortune slot, following a bet of €118.71. Second place actually goes to a poker fan, who ended up €73,584 better off thanks to knowing when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em when playing Ultimate Texas Hold'em. And third of National Casino's all time winners list, at the time of review, is a 9 Happy Pharaoh's player who ended up €62,694.61 better off, which is a pretty good bonus after a stake of just €31.14.
Well over two dozen playable currencies are options to review at National Casino, and players from Canada will be glad to see that CAD is one of them, removing the need for any exchange rate conversions and trying to remember how much stakes and bonuses are worth in real money.
Players from Canada have a reasonable range of financial options to review, with Visa and Mastercard listed, as well as Skrill/Neteller (although these are not permitted for Canadians for betting purposes). However, e-wallet ecoPayz is another supported, and permitted, financial method, as is Canada's specific leading choice of Interac. Cryptocurrency enthusiasts also have a range of currencies, including top dog Bitcoin and Litecoin.
If a problem with money, bonuses, or games should arise customer support can be contacted via either e-mail or live chat on a 24 hour a day basis, although telephone contact does not appear to be supported at the time of review.
National Casino is managed and operated by TechSolutions Group N.V. as a licence holder (No. 8048/JAZ2017-067), and has Kahnawake license No. 00867.
National Casino was established in 2021. Reviewing the complaints situation reveals that a small number have been made, mostly regarding difficulty getting documents accepted for verification.
While players from Canada are free to join and take advantage of bonuses, those from the United Kingdom and United States are not.
The ability to use CAD and avoid the tedium of currency exchanges and the problem of trying to remember how much a USD or GBP is really worth is one advantage for players from Canada, whether playing with their own money or using bonuses.
Here are the answers to some of the most common queries about National Casino.
Yes, players from Canada and most other major gambling nations are welcomed.
Yes, the site allows a wide range of currencies, including CAD.
Players from Canada frequently prefer to use Interac, as it's fast and secure.
Not at the time of review, but no deposit bonuses may become available in the future.
National Casino has a lot to offer players from Canada, including bonuses for both new and existing players, and a very large selection of slots and table games, plus a live casino. However, the lack of no deposit bonuses at the time of review is a little disappointing, and there have been a small number of complaints. Overall, National Casino is worth a look.
