OGCA’s verdict

By Luke Garrison - Casino Expert | April 2023

PlayNow offers an enjoyably simple online casino experience featuring 500+ top games, with a clear emphasis on providing an easy to navigate interface and unrivalled selection of progressive jackpot slots. While the casino is not yet legal in Ontario, we’re hoping it will be made available to players in the province soon.

Areas of improvement include the mobile app, which only features poker games and lottery numbers, and the slow withdrawal times, as players are expected to wait between 3-4 working days to receive their winnings. That being said, we believe PlayNow’s ease of use and inviting minimum deposit and withdrawal limits would make it a popular option if it was to expand into Ontario. Continue reading our in-depth PlayNow casino review to see why.
