I know I am not the only person living in Kingston that has gravitated to playing at online casinos, with the April 2022 regulation.
With no casino in the city, we have to travel to Gananoque to play casino games at the Shorelines Casino Thousand Islands. While it isn’t too far, it’s often very busy and the game selection is limited.
That is not the case with online. There are literally thousands of slots to play. There are no waiting lists for any roulette or blackjack tables. You can hop into a game immediately and play by yourself, or with others if you choose.
In this article, I’m highlighting 10 online casinos that cater to our market, and the new player bonuses that they offer. I should note that there is more to signing up at an online casino than just the new player bonus. There is a lot more to consider such as customer service, game selection and deposit options. Canadian casino portal Top10Casinos goes into much more detail about that.
These are listed in alphabetical order.
888 Casino: 888 Casino is one of those great online casinos that allow you to get a feel for them prior to depositing. All you have to do is register, and they give you 30 free spins on a slot machine. So you get to try the software out and make sure you are happy with it prior to depositing.
If you choose to deposit, they offer a 100% up to $3000 bonus on your first deposit. Don’t worry if you don’t want to deposit that much initially – they offer various reload bonuses on additional deposits.
Bizzo Casino: Bizzo Casino offers a 100% bonus up to $250 on your first deposit. They also give you 50 free spins on either the Dig Dig Digger or Mechanical Clover slot machines. Every Monday, they also award players with up to 100 free spins which is another fun bonus.
Finally, every Thursday they offer a reload bonus of 50% up to $300. On top of that, you get 100 free spins for The Magic Cauldron – Enchanted Brew slot machine. So when playing at Bizzo Casino, you get the opportunity to win a good amount of money for free with so many free spins offered.
Casino Extra: Casino Extra have a $525 welcome bonus for Canadians. On top of that bonus however, they also give you 100 free spins. The spins are broken up with 20 free spins on your first login, and then you are given 20 free spins over the next four additional days.
Each set of free spins is on a different slot. Day 1 is Jackpot Express, Day 2 is Valley of the Gods for example.
Note that their deposit bonus is broken up. Your first deposit is a 100% match to $75. Then on your 2nd deposit, it is a 50% match to $150. Finally, you get a 50% deposit bonus up to $300 on your third deposit.
Casumo Casino: Casumo Casino offers a 100% bonus up to $500 on your first deposit with a minimum deposit required of $10. They also offer 50 bonus spins on the Cleopatra slot, and the nice thing is the deposit amount doesn’t matter – so you can choose to deposit the minimum if required.
Energy Casino: Energy Casino has a great welcome bonus for fans of slots – they offer a 100% to $300 match bonus, and then offer a whopping 300 free spins. So if you are looking to claim a bonus which gives a large quantity of free spins, this is the option for you.
Grand Fortune Casino: Grand Fortune Casino is a very attractive online casino with some great graphic elements and they also have a very attractive welcome bonus for new casino players. They offer a 200% bonus with a free chip, and have a very low wagering requirement.
Jackpot City Casino: One of the more prominent casinos when it comes to advertising in Ontario. They spread the deposit bonus out which is nice. They offer a $1600 welcome bonus, but it’s spread over four deposits with a match bonus of $400 on each deposit. So you don’t have to commit too much at one time. Deposit $400 and play and if you enjoy the casino, you can claim more of the bonus on your next deposit.
They are currently offering a promotion where you can win $1 million, with 10 daily spins for the chance at winning that.
Any of the above casinos will be a great option for anyone in Kingston looking to try out a new online casino. Don’t feel you have to be commited to one online casino either. You can switch from casino to casino, claiming all the different new player bonuses and taking full advantage of the competitive casino market Ontario currently has.
