As the site has grown and matured, we have put in place a set of editorial principles to ensure that we make good on our word. Read on to find out what our editorial principles consist of, and what steps we are taking to implement them in our day-to-day business.

What are the five Playcasinos.ca editorial principles?

  • Fairness
  • Accuracy
  • Relevance
  • Freshness
  • Clarity

Fairness Fairness

Playcasinos.ca provides a fair review of all the casinos on our site. We do our best to highlight both the positives and negatives of an online casino throughout the review, and concluding with a verdict that balances both the high and low points.

Playcasinos.ca contains paid advertising, which means that if you sign up and make a deposit through our site, we will earn a commission from our partners. That said, we will never mislead our readers into playing at casinos which we believe will not provide them with the best online casino experience possible.

Accuracy Accuracy

Playcasinos.ca puts its money where its mouth is. With writers and reviewers who have years of experience playing casino games, online and offline, we know what we’re talking about when we’re writing our casino reviews. We try out every casino that we write about so that we can really understand what the player is getting out of the experience, while highlighting the areas where it can be improved.

Our final ratings are the result of multiple factors which we think are important to Canadian players’ experience, including the variety and quality of the games the site hosts, the speed of deposits and withdrawals, and the customer support available.

Relevance Relevance

While we welcome readers and subscribers from all over the world, Playcasinos.ca is fully aimed towards a Canadian audience. We aim to provide quality content that is of interest to online casino users in Canada, whether that consists of casino reviews that welcome Canadian players, payment methods that can be used in Canada, or offers that are particular to the Canadian market.

As we become increasingly interconnected, issues related to gambling can have worldwide ripple effects. In our news section, we cover stories related to gambling in Canada, as well as global gambling news that could have an impact on Canadian players.

Freshness Freshness

Playcasinos.ca is aware that the online casino industry is constantly changing. Casinos change their bonuses and welcome offers regularly, new games come out at lightning speed, and promotions come and go at the touch of a button.

When a casino review is published, that’s not the end of the story. With our aim to be a one-stop-shop for Canadian online players in mind, we go through our reviews regularly with a fine-tooth comb to make sure that anything we wrote a few weeks or even days ago still applies. In the byline at the top of each review, you will see a timestamp indicating when the review was last updated.

Clarity Clarity

We the writers and editors behind Playcasinos.ca are only human and while we take as many precautions as we can to make sure that we provide readers with accurate information that’s easy to understand, we realize that mistakes happen. Our principle of clarity ensures that we correct any mistakes as soon as we realize they are there – sometimes, even before! We want there to be a two-way communication channel between ourselves and our community of readers and subscribers, so if you have spotted something which you think shouldn’t be there, feel free to reach out to us using the contact form, email address or socials listed on our pages. We are never anything but happy to hear from you.

Where do our editorial guidelines come from?

Playcasinos.ca is a team effort. While we are all very different people, there are values that are common to us all, allowing us to lay out these principles together, and helping us to create an entertainment product and brand that we are all really proud and happy to work for.

Emma’s first-ever Google search was “degrassi show times” (she was 9 years old.) Little did she know that this would be the start of a life-long relationship with search engines and the way they interact and fulfil user needs. Her strength lies in making Playcasinos.ca as accessible and easy for users to find as possible, finding out what questions casino users are asking, and getting them the best answers on the web. She strongly believes that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, as it gives her the fuel to whip Playcasinos into shape during the remaining hours. She believes burger menus are the scourge of modern website design.
