Online Casinos Canada: 2015 Online Casino Awards
And the winners are in! This year, Online Casinos Canada kicks off its first annual Online Casino Awards. The online casinos below have been handpicked for their commitment to excellence for bringing you, the player the best online gaming experience on the internet.
Best Online Casino – Royal Vegas Casino
In perhaps the most coveted of categories, after much research and deliberation, we’re pleased to announce Royal Vegas Casino as our choice for Best Online Casino of 2015. This prestigious title was won the old-fashioned way, through hard work and a clear commitment to excellence. What stood out in our evaluation was the full lifecycle experience Royal Vegas offers. Things get started on the right foot with a $1200 plus 120 free spin sign up bonus. But a welcome bonus is never enough, which is why we were pleased to see a whole host of truly original promotions, with plenty of winning prizes, including a week-long luxury cruise, along the way. Other standout features include the crisp user-experience, the excellent game variety, and the numerous progressive jackpot slots, which at writing, stood at over $6.3 million combined! Add to that a terrific loyalty program, accessible customer support, a mobile casino that’s perfectly compatible with all Android and iOS devices, and quick & easy payouts – and we have ourselves a true online casino winner!
Best New Online Casino – 32 Red Casino
If ever there was a competitive space on the internet, online gambling is it! To truly stand out in the field of new online casinos is a serious feat. As such, we raise our virtual hats at 32 Red Casino, as we crown this casino newbie, Best New Online Casino 2015. Much like the category Best Online Casino, 32 Red had to prove itself across numerous fields – which in our opinion, it did with shining colours! This includes first and foremost its fantastic $10 free, no deposit welcome offer as soon as you sign up. If that wasn’t enough, this bonus can be wagered on any of the casino’s 500+ games, with no limitations AND if you’re so lucky as to win, paid out in real cash prizes. Other things we loved include clearly marked safe gaming indicators, a step-by-step guide to getting started, a professional 24/7 customer support team, and equally impressive download and instant Flash play.
Best VIP Program – Royal Vegas Casino
To make it to the position of best overall casino, one has to excel in all realms of the expected casino offering. Hence, it’s really no surprise that this year’s #1 online casino is also the recipient of a second award, in this case, the Best VIP Program. Truth be told, the Royal Vegas Rewards Program is actually quite simple, and really not all that different from competitors’. But what we really liked were three things. One, that participation is automatic. That is, starting from your first deposit, you already start collecting points and climbing the ranks. In fact, to encourage real money play you instantly get 2,500 rewards points on your first deposit. The second winning factor is the clear points for cash exchange rate. And third, the way that each VIP level has real meaning and value, unlocking bigger benefits and earning you points at a quicker rate as you play.
Best Support – Roxy Palace Casino
Since online casinos deal with sensitive information – including your personal details and perhaps even more importantly, your cash – it’s absolutely pertinent to make players feel protected. One of the best ways to do this is through the casino’s customer support. And in 2015, none did customer support better than Roxy Palace Casino. Although we can say it was a close call – since so many online casinos now recognise the value of professional, responsive support – Roxy Palace outshined the competition by a hair thanks to its extra helpful staff. No mater the time of day, the level of the inquiry, or the manner in which we contacted them (whether by phone, instant chat or email), we always got a thorough, immediate response. And this friends, is exactly what good service is about!
Best Promotions – Casino.com
One might say a name like Casino.com says it all. And perhaps it does. Besides a stellar game offering and excellent support, Casino.com has set itself apart from the competition this year with its virtual parade of winning casino promotions. Highlights for us, of course, include the most important bonus of all – the welcome offer, which in this case stands at an impressive $3200. After that, there are plenty of extras to collect throughout the calendar year. For a nice overview, you can always turn to the casino’s promotions page, where you’ll find such gems as Cash for a Year, Crack the Code, and Red or Black listed. We really liked the variety, and are particularly impressed by the prizes. So kudos to Casino.com on being the best in 2015 when it comes to casino promotions!
Best Mobile Casino – Casino Room
If you’re looking to play online casino games on the go, your best option is a mobile casino. And while you’re at it, you might as well go with the best – which in our opinion, in 2015 was Casino Room. What Casino Room Mobile did right, to win this coveted award is, as we like to say, tick all the right boxes. This starts first and foremost with excellent programming that ensures the website is fully compatible with all smartphones and tablet devices. This includes automatic sizing to fit any screen, as well as clean and clear navigation, which is an absolute must for small screen play. And since many mobile sites tend to be slightly reduced versions of the online site, we were particularly pleased to find that Casino Room Mobile maintains a terrific game offering including top titles like Jack Hammer, Gonzo’s Quest, blackjack. and roulette. Plus other functions, like support and banking are exactly the same. In other words, well played Casino Room, your mobile site is solid gold.
