The first thing standing out in this review is the unique selection of games that have been developed in-house by Slotland Entertainment. This setup has been in place since the brand was launched in 2007, also supported by bonus promotions and tournament events.
Over five deposits, you can claim a full $500 welcome bonus package. Stage one of this package lets you deposit with the promo code "WELCOME1" for a 100% match bonus that's worth up to $100. A review of the terms and conditions (T&Cs) then show that the bonus wagering requirements have been assigned quite reasonably at 25x.
Next in the sequence is a 25% bonus worth up to $62.50 and which is unlocked with the code "WELCOME2". You then repeat the process on your third and fourth deposits by using the bonus codes of "WELCOME3" and "WELCOME4". To finish, a fifth deposit must be completed with the code "WELCOME5" to receive an 85% bonus up to $212.50.
The welcome offer doesn't contain free spins, but the bonus credit can be used with greater control, as you call the shots for every wager. Oh, and you might be fortunate enough to trigger free spins as one of the bonus features that are available to unlock from the various Slotland slots.
An array of bonus events take place each month, complete with opportunities to deposit during Happy Hours and receive $50 in cashback credit. Game of the Month can then provide up to $250 in cash prizes, which are also available in the daily tournaments. Plus, there's a chance to win $100 free if randomly selected for depositing in the last seven days.
This review can also recommend the VIP bonus rewards granted to players who rise from the Bronze entry-level to reach Silver, Gold or possibly even Platinum. The free bonus offers get stronger with every increase in level and winners are selected every single day.
During the review process, there are numerous chances to deposit and claim a bonus, but none that could be claimed with no deposit, and it was similar when hunting for free spins. Moving forward, we believe that review readers would welcome the introduction of bonus free spins and no deposit credit at this online casino. Anyone seeking the best online casino bonus deals can look here.
This review does believe the brand could do better from a Canada perspective. We realised early in the review process that the casino site has adopted USD as the default currency. As a result, those of us here in Canada have to claim the $500 welcome bonus in USD rather than CAD. This would also apply to any no deposit bonus credit or winnings earned from free spins.
This is one of only three online casinos powered by Slotland Entertainment, a software provider that maintains close control over a handful of in-house gaming brands. The proprietary software arrangement also means this casino site receives no content from any third-party providers.
The exclusive arrangement means the library was limited to 86 titles at the time of our review. More than 60 video slots were available to review, with the limitations more greatly felt among the table games and video poker, which were much smaller by comparison.
WinADay Casino operates a browser-based site that's compatible with Windows or MacOS desktop computers installed with Flash, using a 512kbps web connection and outfitted with 1GB RAM and 1GHz CPU. Here in Canada, modern computers are likely to exceed those requirements and performance should be strong.
Win A Day Casino Canada has developed a mobile site to ensure that review readers can access games in as many ways as possible. Canada has a strong mobile internet infrastructure in and around metropolitan centres, while home users can wander around the house playing on tablets or smartphones over a secure Wi-Fi connection.
When playing from Canada, simply visit the site from an Android or iOS device, including iPad or iPhone. New registrations are permitted on mobile, which is a bonus, and existing users are allowed to sign in with their standard login credentials. There's also an option to scan a QR code from the desktop site and be linked to the mobile casino.
Canada is home to many impressive live casino destinations, but this isn't yet one of them. Slotland didn't provide live dealer software at the time of review and so there are no games to discuss here in the review. Fortunately, we can help by pointing out the top live online casinos that Canada has to offer.
Now it's time to review the games, starting with the smaller categories. With no blackjack to play, that leaves us with only La Roulette (European) and Roulette 5. Keno 101 and Power keno are also listed, though are better-described as instant wins. Then featuring among the video poker machines are Aces & Faces, All-American Poker, Deuces Wild, Deuces & Joker and Jacks or Better.
In the library, it's helpful to see the number of paylines labelled for every slot game. Slots with a high number can be more expensive, so remember this when budgeting your bankroll. As for recommendations, we enjoyed our time with Alice in Wonderland, Aztec Adventure, Castle Siege, Cirque de Paris, Coin Rush, Dollar Storm, Enchanted Gems, Fair Tycoon, Gold Boom, Olympus and Wild West.
In this review, we found that the site required no deposit for registered players to load up individual games. Obviously, it isn't possible to wager with real money if no deposit has been made. However, our review felt it helped to look at paytables and see if free spins could be unlocked. After all, free spins can help you cut back on wagering for a few rounds.
And now for your review are a selection of payout percentages:
Win A Day Casino maintains a winners' wall where all major announcements are made. This is a definite bonus feature for any players who like to review the latest big wins and see which progressive jackpot slots can offer the potential for a life-changing payout. In this case, there seem to be ample opportunities.
In January 2019, it was announced James H won $329,862 from Vegas Vibes. Two years earlier, Steve M was fortunate to win $103,031 from Leprechaun Luck in December 2017. Even more impressive was Jose P winning $277,483 from Pyramid Plunder in October 2017. Another notable win occurred in August 2015 when a curious user by the name of Donald T was able to win $202,108 playing Gypsy Charm.
Casino Win A Day converts all currency transactions into USD. This applies to CAD and the handful of cryptocurrencies accepted by the online casino. Canada review readers should know that any cryptos deposited will be subjected to 10% conversion if transferred to the cashier.
With no deposit possible in CAD, this means that we Canada players need to convert our native dollar. Fortunately, this can be done automatically with the aid of trusted payment methods like MasterCard, VISA, Neteller and Wire Transfer. Alternative options include Coinify, Bitcoin, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash.
WinADay Casino Canada is surprisingly informative in the frequently asked questions (FAQs), which are used to explain accounts, banking, tournaments and general issues, such as free spins, playing with no deposit, the legality of gambling, system requirements, payout percentages and more.
In contrast, the T&Cs and other official documents are longer and more complex. If you have any queries, then this review would advise asking questions directly by using live chat or one of the suitable email addresses. The operator does promise that live chat runs 24/7, so you might not have to email.
A security review reveals the casino site operates with an Anjouan gaming licence and provides services instantly through web browsers. As a result, the services need to be provided securely and this is possible with the aid of 256-bit encryption. At the time of this Canada review, encryption was verified by Go Daddy.
After review, it seems that fairness is more difficult to prove, as little written information is available from the Anjouan authority. Meanwhile, the operator itself reports a site-wide 98.00% payout percentage that, although appearing high, remains untested by an independent testing specialist.
Slotland Entertainment has existed since 1998 when the software provider launched the flagship Slotland Casino. Close to a decade later, Slotland then elected to open Casino WinADay in 2007. Only one other brand has been launched since and this remains one of the only places to play content from Slotland.
On-site operations are performed as per a remote gambling licence provided by the Indian Ocean jurisdiction of Anjouan, which isn't widely employed as a licensing authority. Despite that, we didn't encounter many complaints when researching this review. One gambling portal reported an impressive 100% clearance rate for only six complaints.
The brand holds a good reputation across most portals, barring one that has elected to blacklist it due to software concerns. Review readers from here in Canada can raise any concerns of their own directly to the casino site and can then go further by complaining to the licensing authority if needed.
The operator can process no deposit that's made by review readers residing in one of the following locations: Belarus, China, Czech Republic, France (including foreign dependencies), India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, Taiwan, Turkey, UK (including foreign dependencies), Ukraine or Vietnam.
Win A Day Casino operates as more of a globalised site rather than one tailored for Canada. Early on in this Canada review, we noticed a French linguistic setting wasn't provided. After that, we realised it wasn't possible to receive free spins, no deposit credit or any bonus offers in CAD. This review could be even stronger if these updates were made in future.
Completing the registration process will be a breeze for review readers, who simply have to enter their personal information while selecting a username and password. As explained earlier, this online casino uses encryption to provide a secure connection over which information can be sent.
Joining Win A Day Casino carries the bonus of being able to access Slotland software, which is only available at two other casino sites. The catalogue only held 86 gaming options at the time of this Canada review, which is much less compared to other destinations online. In this case, at least you can enjoy software that you're unlikely to have ever played before.
