Toronto Online Poker

Rumours of a casino in Toronto are far from a sure bet for a metropolis that has long prevented gambling within city limits. The advent of online poker provided by sites such as 888 poker brought the game to the city for the first time, and it’s likely to take an ever bigger change to allow a traditional casino to follow suit. According to The Star, there are many factors though would make allowing a casino in Toronto now more appealing than any other point in the city’s history — the need for job creation, revenue, and the sprucing up of a fading tourist attraction that Ontario Place has become — but there are still many hurdles and challenges to overcome before it could ever become a reality.

“Even politicians in power who are deeply committed to improving Toronto’s financial situation may not be able to bring a casino to the city, Canadian-poker spokesperson Leon Daniels explained. “But nowadays, when anyone can login to the internet and play online poker, who needs a land based casino?” Says Daniels.

“Following the events of April 15th, when sites such as Pokerstars, Full tilt Poker and Absolute Poker were shut down, People are waiting for live poker tournaments to come to Toronto at a traditional casino, However, they are not aware that there are much better alternatives.” Leon Confirmed.

“888 poker, one of our readers favourite, offers a special PokerCam Tournament feature that create the illusion of playing against live players without having to travel to an actual casino. “888 has grown to accommodate the ever-increasing popularity of poker for Canadians, and our readers reviews show it.

Bwin Poker offers online poker tournaments as well, “Canadian readers have great things to say about bwin, from daily tournaments and freerolls to special events to bring out the best competition around,” Daniels said. “Between these two sites and all the opportunities they present, the debate over a Toronto casino can wait.”
