We all know that there are a lot of myths going around about online casinos in Canada. They are surrounded by quite a bit of mystery and while the most common thing you will ever hear about casinos is that “the house always wins”, there’s actually quite a lot of other things casinos don’t necessarily want you to find out about.

While most casino players will keep making these mistakes casinos thrive from, you are one of the lucky ones who won’t. Because we managed to find out a couple of things casinos don’t want you to know, and all these will give you a much better chance at winning in any online casino in Canada.

1.  The house edge differs from one game to another

It’s true, the odds favor the casino. Always. The house edge is what makes casino games profitable for the casino and this means that as soon as you start playing, whether it’s online pokies, Roulette, Blackjack or other casino games, the odds are slightly stacked against you.

What most players don’t know is that each game has different winning odds, meaning that some are more likely to be profitable for you than others. For example, slots or pokies give casinos a house edge of 10%, which is quite high when compared to Blackjack or Roulette with a 3% house edge, and a whole lot higher than the 0.46% advantage the casino has on Video Poker for example.


Choosing the right game is the very first thing you can do in order to improve your odds of winning, so do your own research and choose wisely.

2.  Walk away

Many casino players win, but most of them end up wanting more and losing the money back to the online casino. What most players don’t know is that everything in the casinos and their games (especially online pokies) is designed in a manner which makes it hard for the player to leave or stop playing.

Casinos have learned a lot of time ago that the more time the user spends playing, the more he will lose. So they go out of their way to keep them in as long as possible. That is why it is extremely important for you to learn to quit while you’re ahead. It’s not easy, but it’s effective.

Let’s say for example that you won a decent amount in an online pokie. You should close it and request a withdrawal right away. Not another spin, not another game. The more you delay your withdrawal, the less you will have to withdraw.

3.  Never play Keno

For those of you who don’t know, online Keno is a type of virtual lottery. The prizes may seem attractive, but it’s important to remember that the chances of winning are astronomical to say the least. In a game of Keno, the chances of winning the top prize by guessing the same 20 numbers the algorithm will extract are  1 in 3,535,316,142,212,173,800.000. Can you read that number? That is one in 3.5 quintillions. It means that you are a whole lot more likely to be struck by lightning ten times during your lifetime than to ever win big in Keno.

That is why Keno is always the game that gives the casino the biggest house edge, around 30-50%.

4.  Bet big on online pokies

While it may seem counterintuitive, playing pokies with bigger bets gives you an advantage, as you have a better chance at winning big from a couple of big bets than you have when you play with pennies.

Betting 20 cents and winning 80 cents is a completely different outcome than betting 200$ and winning 800$. Plus, if you play online pokies with progressive jackpots, you stand a much better chance at winning a life changing amount if you bet big.

Now that you know a couple of the secrets casinos definitely don’t want you to know, apply what you have learned and become a winning casino player! It’s a lot easier than it seems.
