Another country where gambling has become almost as popular as it is here in Australia is Canada. Normally it was the Rockies and the beautiful scenery that made Canada such a big tourist draw, but with cities like Calgary and Halifax now home to fantastic casinos, it has now become a perfect pit stop for gamblers.

Genie’s Gems offers the allure of the Genie, complete with magic lamps, magic carpets, and a high chance of winning despite the simplicity of this game.
The ‘double’ chip also acts as the game’s wild symbol and can stand in for all others except for the scatter and the red dice to complete a winning combination. Additionally, the wild pays 2 for 1, 20 for 3 and a massive 1000 for 3, and it doubles all prizes when it completes a winning line.
The dragon’s pearl symbol acts as a scatter in this game, and if you can land three, four, or five of these anywhere on the reels, you’ll trigger the bonus feature.

The random number generator matches certain numbers with card combinations. The game designer sets the pay schedule on the game, so a certain number of combinations of each type are plugged into the algorithm. Every second, the RNG spits out thousands of numbers, each which corresponds to some card combination. Thus, any one-thousandth of a second, several numbers might be generated. At the split second you hit the “Deal/Draw” button, one of these numbers has been chosen. The machine thus doesn’t go through hot or cold phases; it all depends on whether you hit the button in this fraction of a second or that one.
Players are allowed to deposit and play in GBP, EUR and USD. Although it’s not mentioned in the T&C we have a reason to believe that the transactions are processed in GBP. Withdrawals are processed on the principle first come, first served. In our opinion, Gala Casino has every right to boast their seal displayed at the bottom of the page saying Fast Withdrawals.
Expectedly, deposits are instant, and we recommend PayPal, which sadly, is available to UK players only. Players can deposit and play in EUR, GBP, SEK, and NOK. As alternatives to PayPal, there are Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard and Boku, which is ideal for mobile players. Please note, Skrill and Neteller depositors are not eligible for certain bonus offers.
As we already said you are not required to be a holder of a license in classical terms. The entity that wants to operate an online casino in Costa Rica must have an open office located in Costa Rica. What the willing entity needs in common words will be the Data Processing License. It contains all relevant information regarding the company, the owner, the employees etc. The online casinos are taxed on the basis of the number of employees they have with the minimum being 10 employees. The more employees there are in the company, the bigger the tax that has to be paid to the Costa Rican government. The license costs are one of the lowest in the whole world. Starting from as little as $15,000 and $1500 for a three month extension of the license, it offers great flexibility for a small price to pay.
