PlayNow.com, the only online casino licensed to deliver Live Dealer entertainment in British Columbia, came into the limelight following its decision to significantly heighten its weekly transfer-in limit of up to CAN$100,000.
Owned and operated by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC), the website is the province’s major source of regulated fun where patrons can play slots and table games, take part in poker tournaments, and even try their luck at bingo.
Moving High-Rollers Away From Unregulated Sites
With such a dramatic increase in spending limits (the previous maximum was capped at $9,999), this versatile gambling platform aims to attract more high-rollers, mainly by making them move away from numerous unregulated sites. To facilitate hassle-free withdrawals, the venue offers a range of payment methods tailored to Canadians.
The sharp rise also applies to the sum of money punters can have in their accounts at one time, which has also grown from $9,999 to $250,000. The changes, of course, won’t affect most players as according to the BCLC, more than half of its customers adjust a weekly deposit limit at $100 or less.
“By increasing deposit and account limits, PlayNow.com is offering high limit players a regulated, secure online-gambling platform with safeguards that support player health while keeping gambling revenue in British Columbia, where it is used to support core services British Columbians depend on, like health care and education,” the BCLC said in a statement.
… that more than 2,000 so-called „grey market“ websites operate in the province at the moment absorbing over 70% of users that gamble online. Needless to say, such places do not care too much about anti-money laundering safeguards or a healthy gaming environment. In addition to that, while the income generated through PlayNow.com is invested into BC social services and infrastructure projects, unregulated websites do not pay taxes in the province.

PlayNow online casino, in its turn, designed to foster healthy play through various measures and tools, from age-verification control and activity log info to a short-term lockout function and a voluntary-self exclusion program. It also utilizes GameSense in order to help punters balance the fun part of gambling with the need to stay in control and within their boundaries.
