Anyone from Canada who is new to online gambling, and those who have gambled before and are looking for a new site to play at, will find this to be a very useful bookmark in their browser.
If the site is updated
Despite being in its infancy, we can already see that thecasinoheat.ca is regularly updated with new content. Their listings include both iconic famous brands like 888 and Grand Mondial and the very latest new site launches which appear on the home page within weeks of arriving in the Canadian market. Alongside reviews of the best new online casinos you will also find news articles and features discussing the latest changes to regulation as the government looks to open up the country to private operators from Europe and follow in US footsteps by turning Canada into a fully regulated online gambling market.
The Casino Heat Canada is also home to reviews of the very latest online slots games. Canadian gamblers are avid slots players and enjoy the big progressives in particular. Alongside reviews of new slots like ELK Studio’s Visitors, are the latest Microgaming progressives, Wheel of Wishes, and their old favourite, Mega Moolah.
The slots pages are updated weekly with the latest releases and also provide important information about the latest features to improve gameplay and player experience.
Alongside all this we find features about new payment methods like Apple Pay, the latest Live Dealer formats from Evolution Gaming, and regular light-hearted stories about gambling-related culture like ‘Vegas in films’ and ‘celebrity gamblers’.

To this end there is a Casino Bonus page listing the best available welcome packages, and a Free Spins page highlighting no deposit free spins deals on games like Starburst and Book of Dead, all available to new registrations who only need to validate their account to receive the offer.
