Gambling is big business. There are various types of gambling and it is internationally a global market. Games of chance are a source of entertainment and sometimes a source of major monetary gain. Many people do not know that gambling in some form is legal across Canada. All gambling establishments are regulated at the state level. This means there are different methods of gambling and different laws which regulate the industry.

Good for the economy

Gambling is a popular activity for adults everywhere. From a business point of view, it is a major money-maker. Casinos bring in travelers who want to experience the beauty of areas such as Brandon. The casinos are their nightlife while vacationing. Vacationers mean restaurants profit, hotels profit, shops profit, and local attractions reap the benefits of the travelers.

The gambling industry in Canada grew by 4.9% in the year 2017. That equals CA$17.3 billion in revenue. These numbers show a rise in revenue for the fourth year consecutively. The trend continues While the growth is welcomed, it keeps lawmakers busy making sure policies are in place to control and enforce regulations


Gambling is not just for the visitors of Canada. People who live in the area will often visit a casino as part of an evening out or having fun with friends. However, with the popularity of offshore gambling sites like Lottoland, people can gamble from the comfort of their home or office with the use of their personal computer or mobile device. The websites are user-friendly and customer service agents are available to answer questions. Nothing has been held back in giving players an exciting experience.

The offshore casino offers the same opportunity as a domestic casino. There are video slots, poker, table games, (live dealers if you want them) and much more. They provide betting on sporting events and races. But perhaps the most popular feature of an offshore casino is the lottery.

Lottery globally!

Playing the lottery is so common that people who do not gamble will go out of their way to pick up a ticket when the purse gets high enough. In the past, people who were going to be in the US or near the border would come over and buy lottery tickets. You had to show up in person to buy the ticket and if you won, you had to show up in person to collect your winnings. Lotteries that are geographically impossible to travel for are unattainable.

Offshore casinos like Lottoland are available online. They are licensed and they meet all legal requirements. People access their favorite games online. Lottoland makes it possible to play Mega-Millions or Powerball online without crossing the border.  You are not restricted from buying tickets from all locations.

As with domestic casinos, betting on races and sporting events are possible. Game-night takes on a whole new meaning for sports lovers.

How it works

When you play your state lottery, you select your numbers and if those numbers are chosen, you win the prize. When you play the lottery on Lottoland, you are not betting on your local lottery. You are betting on the results of the lottery. You are provided with the same styles and choices of the lottery and the same prizes are awarded. But, if you win you are paid by Lottoland.

In 2018, Guinness World Record verified that Lottoland paid out the largest lottery win to the tune of 90m euros. Before that winning ticket, the largest lottery payout was 14m euros.

Because of this, Lottoland can offer you a full range of choices from anywhere in the world. Small winnings they pay for from the “house” and large winnings are paid via the insurance company they are required to have by law.
