Canadian Gambling Facts

Gambling in Canada goes back long before it was declared a country in 1867, and it was John Cabot, who happened upon Canadian shores in 1497, who traced its roots back as far as the year 6000 B.C. Fast-forward through the centuries and we see how native games of chance have evolved from sticks and pebbles, cards and dice, and bingo and lotteries to a 13 billion dollar industry it is today it is today. The one thing that’s clearly remained unchanged is the fact that gambling remains a favourite pastime for Canadians, whether it’s time spent in a land-based casino like the FallsView Casino Resort , or the more popular online casinos as this infographic indicates.
