Canada is often seen as something of a strange dichotomy, a blend of the best parts of European culture mixed with those of Natives and those who reside below of its southern border.
Nowhere is this clearer than at some of the country’s most stunning natural wonders, where often wild vistas, towering mountains and raging waters are accompanied by gaming establishments fit for mother nature herself, as well as mere mortals.
Niagara’s pounding torrents are undoubtedly the most famous falls in the world, with anyone who’s paid them a visit still able to recall the relentless rumble of gallon upon gallon of rapid pounding into the pools below.
Once visitors have dried their plastic macs and recovered from vertigo that the awe-inspiring waterfall can induce, they don’t have to go far for comfort and luxury, with the Canadian side of the falls jam-packed with hotels and casinos primed to deal with even the fussiest of clientele.
The aptly named Casino Niagara is one of the very best, and even if they don’t have what you’re looking for you can always ditch the live tables and use a handy casino bonus on your mobile instead. There are those who prefer the American side of the falls for its less developed feel, but for those who want everything and more, the Canadian side is the place to be.
British Columbia is the home of log cabins, snowdrifts as tall as buses and ski resorts renowned for their guaranteed supply of magical powder.
In the summer months, the area tends to calm down, leaving the more discerning visitor to enjoy some of the finer things in life, such as a round of golf or a hike along a wildlife trail. The perfect base to do all this from is St. Eugene Golf Resort Casino, which despite resembling the building from The Shining, is probably not going to see you come face to face with Johnny. The casino here only opens at certain hours, so again, it’s good to have your mobile to hand if you get itchy fingers.
Last but not least comes a casino resort perched perfectly on the banks of one of Canada’s finest expanses of freshwater, Lake Simcoe. The best time to visit here is in the summer months when boats and seaplanes give wonderful tours of the local area. Then when the sun goes down you can head inside the Casino Rama Resort to game into the wee small hours.
