Seeker’s Guide to Gambling Online with CAD Credit Card Deposits

Debit Card Casino

There are quite literally thousands of online casinos operating today. About one thousands of them currently welcome Canadian customers. That’s a lot of gambling sites to choose form! When you narrow the list by operators that accept credit cards, however, it gets a lot smaller.

That’s not to say there aren’t many to choose from overall, but in terms of quality and reputation, it’s not many. The following is a list of Canada’s top credit card casinos. Note that Ontario residents have a different batch of locally regulated gambling sites to choose from. We list Ontario-licensed casinos with credit card payments below.

Credit Card Gambling Sites – All of Canada

Royal Vegas CasinoJackpot City Casino888CasinoRuby FortuneCanPlaySpin Palace

#1 Royal Vegas Casino

Royal Vegas accepts MasterCard & Visa credit card payments. It’s been accepting credit cards since its inception over two decades ago. The operator’s age is just one of the reasons we recommend it. Royal Vegas has been satisfying customers in Canada, and all over the world, since 2000.

According to the current text of the Royal Vegas Casino ‘Banking‘ page:

“We support a variety of banking options, like web wallets, and credit/debit cards…”

That section goes on to list “some of the options that are available” as “Visa“ and “Mastercard“.

#2 Jackpot City Casino

Another top choice for Canadian iGamers is Jackpot City. It is owned and operated by the same parent company as Royal Vegas, and has actually been around a bit longer. Jackpot city launched prior to the turn of the century in 1998. It also accept Visa and Mastercard credit cards.

The FAQ section of Jackpot City presently details the following question and answer:

Q: “Which payment methods does JackpotCity Casino offer?”
A: “Players can deposit and withdraw via several seamless payment options, including credit and debit cards, such as Visa and MasterCard“

#3 888Casino

On its website, 888 welcomes users to deposit with cards – Visa cards, Mastercard, all kinds of cards. But the word “credit” does not appear. So, we shot an email to customer support. First of all, let me tell you, email support is not nearly as fast as live chat, but that’s besides the point. The good news is the response we got from support rep ‘Iulian B.’ The short of it was this:

“…yes we accept both credit and debit cards for deposits, both for Ontario and the rest of Canada.”

#4 Ruby Fortune Casino

We could not find an absolute answer of credit card acceptance on the website (outside of an obscure mention on the ‘mobile casino’ page. So, we contacted live support and asked directly. In about 15 seconds, we had confirmation. To the question, “Do you accept credit card deposits?”, the reply came swift:

“Yes we do.”

#5 CanPlay Casino

CanPlay is a relatively new online gambling site, but one that caters specifically to the Canadian market (as its name cleverly implies). The all-Canadian version, licensed in Kahnawake, confirms its acceptance of credit cards in the Deposits & Payment Methods page:

“We accept Visa and MasterCard and it’s easy and convenient to deposit with prepaid, credit and debit cards at CanPlay Casino.”

#6 Spin Palace Casino

Spin Palace, a Maltese-registered iGaming destination established in 2001, is another top choice for Canadians depositing with a credit card. The casino has a light-hearted tone to it, both in graphic design and conversational text. The payment methods section of the FAQ page whimsically states:

“Feel free to use your credit cards…”

Credit Card Casino Deposits – Ontario Exclusive

These are casinos licensed by the government of Ontario. These operators only accept players from Ontario, and adhere to strict regulatory guidelines set forth by the province. Note that some of these brands are the same ones listed above in the ‘All of Canada’ section. While they are the same brand operators, the websites and their URLs are different.

#1 Ruby Fortune Ontario

We move Ruby Fortune into the number-one position for Ontario-facing casinos that accept credit cards. Why? Because they don’t mince words whatsoever when detailing deposit methods. The Banking page depicts, both in text and imagery, the acceptance of Visa Credit Cards and Mastercard Credit Card. We snagged this screenshot on February 23, 2023:

Ruby Fortune Ontario Credit Cards 

#2 Royal Vegas ON

Once again we find Royal Vegas (the Ontario version, this time) proudly accepts credit cards. We can verify this by visiting the casino’s Help Page, which clearly states:

“We support a variety of banking options, like web wallets, and credit/debit cards…”

That page goes on to specify “Visa“ and “Mastercard“ acceptance.

#3 Jackpot City Ontario

Jackpot City ON specifies its acceptance of Visa and Mastercard in a statement on its Banking Page:

“Making deposits and withdrawals at JackpotCity couldn’t be simpler or smoother, thanks to the fact that we offer only the most reputable names in online banking options, whether you prefer to make use of a credit or debit card, prepaid solution or a web wallet.”

#4 CanPlay Ontario

The Ontario-only edition of CanPlay proffers the same sentiment on its Deposits & Payment Methods page, confirming acceptance of Visa and Mastercard credit cards:

“We accept Visa and MasterCard and it’s easy and convenient to deposit with prepaid, credit and debit cards at CanPlay Casino.”

#5 Play Fallsview

Play Fallsview is the online edition of Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, Ontario. This operator makes it very clear that it accepts credit card payments. However, it also admits that such deposits are frequently declined by banks and/or credit card companies. That’s what we like to call “truth in advertising”, and it’s admirable in such a competitive business. Visa/Mastercard Deposits FAQ states:

“You can deposit funds to your casino gaming account using a VISA or MasterCard. We have observed that certain banks restrict transactions, made on standard credit cards, to gaming sites. If your credit card transaction is declined, by your card issuing bank, you can try other deposit methods.”

That page goes on to clarify that “you must NOT use a business credit card” to deposit.

#6 888Casino Ontario

As previously stated above, 888Casino does accept credit cards payments. Our inquiry to customer support received the following reply:

“…yes we accept both credit and debit cards for deposits, both for Ontario and the rest of Canada.”
