Festive Gambling Trends in Canada

At this time of year, many people seem to enjoy logging into their favourite casino or sportsbook and trying their luck to see how much they can win. Seasonal promotions, a greater sense of fun and the usual entertainment value of gambling are among the factors that contribute to this trend.

Online Gambling A Canadian Favourite

Betting and winning online is a popular activity among Canadians at any time of the year. The industry generates gross revenue of $31 billion per year, in part because Internet speeds are so good and technology in general is developing at such a rapid pace.

In particular, as the mobile revolution continues to sweep the globe, the entertainment on smartphones and tablets has improved exponentially. These advances mean that the game quality is always excellent, making people who enjoy gambling anyway even more likely to play this way.

Enticing Seasonal Promotions

Just like other retailers and businesses, online casinos and sportsbooks take advantage of the massive increase in consumer spending that occurs during the festive season. Several casinos encourage players to bet more with specific promotions, including cash prizes, free spins and exciting match bonuses.

There are also plenty of themed slots games such as Rudolph’s Revenge, Fruit Shop: Christmas Edition, Deck the Halls and Book of Christmas. As well as slots, Bingo games often have a celebratory slant and require you to daub a pattern that looks like a Christmas tree or some other appropriate motif.

You might even find table games that have been made over with typical decorations, or live dealers who are dressed green and red attire. Playing these games can help gamblers get into the spirit of Christmas, especially as they take advantage of the enticing special offers.

Festivities Change Peoples’ Moods

While this is indeed the most wonderful time of the year for many people, for others it is also the most stressful. Often, people find that it is both. If you are on holiday and feeling more relaxed, you might be more inclined to let yourself “live a little” and indulge in a spot of online gambling, taking advantage of the superior sites and Christmastime promotions available at Canadian casinos.

On the other hand, if you are feeling more stressed out than usual by hosting parties, buying gifts and dealing with difficult family members, you might want to use your gaming activities as a quick means of relaxation. Gaming is a great way to unwind, even if you play for free.

Play Responsibly This Season

Everyone deserves to have fun at this time of year, and with the generous special offers that you’ll find at so many sites you really could win big and see in the new year with a sizable nest egg. As always, the key is to stay having fun and avoid getting into problem gambling situations.

Set a budget for how much you’re going to spend, and make sure you stick to it. If you need to, most of Canada’s reputable online casino operators allow you to self-impose limits on the time and money you use at their sites. As always, never chase your losses or bet with any funds that you can’t afford to lose.

Log into your favourite sites regularly, as they frequently run daily promotions at this time of year, but remember to enjoy the other pleasures of the season too. Refining your betting strategy and playing the games you like most is a great way to enjoy yourself in December, and who knows? You may just hit the jackpot when you least expect it, adding even more festivities to an already fun filled time of the year!
