The three best online poker sites to use in Canada.


The way that online poker sites have improved in recent years has been astounding. When casino games were first brought to the internet they were clunky, ugly and barely usable. The cards were little fuzzy pictures, the mouse rarely managed to click on them and it was so slow that it was almost quicker to hop in your car and drive to your nearest casino rather than waiting for the game to load. This was always coupled with the fact that everyones internet was very slow just as these games were beginning to develop meaning we had poor quality games and slow internet making online poker in the early 00ís a real busted flush.

Now however it is amazing, it is almost the quality of an Xbox or Playstation game with so many different companies all vying for top spot and to be your online poker provider of choice. Competition is supposed to breed innovation, in many cases this has simply not happened, but in terms of online poker it absolutely has. With online poker being legal, if in some cases restricted, there are so many online poker sites for Canadians to enjoy that it can be hard to pick your favourite.
