Casino Regulations - Good To Enforce To Keep Canadian Taxes Down!
In relation to casino regulations for Canadians it is all very much dependent upon the laws that have been laid out for their governing territory or province. Gambling in Canada in whatever form is permitted everywhere, but regulations do differ for each of its three territories and 10 provinces.
There is a certain amount of gambling that goes on in Canada that is not legal or in a grey area. This would include private betting houses, non-government regulated lottery machines, video gaming, and online gaming. Casino regulations for online casinos in particular are under the spotlight, due to the amount of revenue that is lost by the country to overseas operators.
With billions of dollars gambled by Canadians every year, $13 Billion to be precise, it only makes sense for Canada to look at ways of establishing their own online casino presence in conjunction with private partners. In so doing, they have the opportunity to channel dollars where shortfalls currently exist, be it education, health, whatever is deemed necessary, after all who wants higher taxes when there is already an untapped income source close to hand!
Of course as far as land based casino are concerned, they are already making their contributions, no problem with casino regulations here needing to be enforced, other than previously stated patrons having to adhere to local laws. There are in excess of 100 casinos stretching from East to West however none in the provinces of Labrador, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
There are some that are sumptuous such as the ones at Mont Tremblant or Manoir Richelieu both in Quebec. Offering such picturesque settings it is not hard to see how and why they attract so many visitors throughout the year. There are others such as Caesars or the Montreal Casino, in Windsor, Ontario, or the Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort at Niagara Falls, all of which are star studded Vegas Style run operations with restaurants, live shows and shopping on hand for their patrons.
The age requirement for admittance varies by province or territory. Anyone over 19 will be problem free and with casinos in Quebec, Manitoba and Alberta, patrons a year younger are also ok. Canadians are spoilt for choice with a number of the Canadian casinos operated and run by First Nation tribes, now let's see how Canada online, is further developed, then everyone will be a winner!
