Land Based Casinos in Canada

Canadian Casinos have some pretty relaxed rules in comparison to some of the other countries and their gaming laws. Players of Canadian casinos will range from players within the bordering states of the United States as well players from Canada. Within this article, you will have information taxation of gambling winnings, age requirements and more.

Alcohol Consumption is legal at age 19 in regions such as Ontario, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Newfoundland, Labrador, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut. In Albert, Manitoba and Quebec, players are able to participate in bar functions at just 18 and over.

In Canada, the legal gambling age varies depending on the region. In Nova Scotia, Canada, visitors must be at least 19 years old in order to play any of the games within a casino. In Ontario, the legal limit is 19 or over. Visitors who are 18 and under are not permitted within the gaming floor in Ontario, Canada regardless of who they are accompanied by. The Victoria region of Canada has the same laws. It is believed in these regions that people will not be mature enough to handle gambling on their own until they have reached the age of 19. In some regions of Canada, players will find casinos that do accommodate players who are just 18. The only regions to find gaming for players who are under 19 is Alberta, Manitoba and Quebec.

One of the biggest differences between gaming in Canada and gaming in other countries is the fact that players will have a harder time finding a casino that allows smoking. Most of the casinos within the country do not allow smoking which is an up side for some players and a downside to others. This is one of the most common reasons as to why players will cross into the United States in order to seek out their perfect casino. Smoking in most of the Canadian casinos has been prohibited since somewhere around 2006, so the law is relatively new.

The Canadian income tax code is written in a way that makes a game of pure chance (such as slots, roulette, craps, blackjack etc.) not subject to income tax. This is the #1 benefit Canadian gamblers have over their American counterpart who are taxed on all winnings. As the Canada Revenue Agency States “Paragraph 40(2)(f) also provides that no taxable capital gains or allowable capital losses arise from the disposition of a chance to win a bet or a right to receive an amount as winnings on a bet in connection with a pool system of betting referred to in section 188.1 of the Criminal Code. The nature of pool system betting is such that the only winnings are in the form of cash from the respective pool. Consequently, no additional capital gain or loss tax consequences could arise on subsequent disposition of the winnings and thus it is not necessary (as described in 2 above, in the case of a lottery) to deem the winnings to have been acquired at fair market value.”

Gaming in Canada is pretty extraordinary in a sense that most casinos allow their poker rooms to be open 24 hours a day whereas their traditional gaming floor is only open certain business hours. Players who enjoy poker and some other table games will have a harder time finding restaurants within the casino which will accommodate them after hours though. Gaming styles as far as electronic games is pretty standard, you will find progressives, video poker, slots and other styles of games available. Table games are the classic Baccarat, Craps and Blackjack but often times you will see additional tables like Blackjack Switch and other choices too! As far as planning a trip to Canada, it is best to check out the individual casino as some requirements within each casino are subject to change.
