A key characteristic of legal online casinos is their affiliations with reputable gambling software developers. Top online casino software providers have been in business for a long time. These companies guarantee the end-users an up-to-date and high-quality gambling experience each time they log into an online casino website.

Due to technological progress over the past 30 years, the audio and visual aspects of online gambling have become interactive and realistic, resulting in more players flocking to online casinos.  In Canada, five major online casino software developers rule the roost when it comes to providing local online gamblers with superior games and unforgettable moments:


NetEntertainment, more commonly known as NetEnt, is a pioneer of the online gambling industry, having been established in Sweden in 1996. NetEnt is best known to local players for classics like Gonzo’s Quest, Vikings, and Lost Relics.

Although NetEnt completely pulled out of the Canadian market in 2016 due to various regulatory disputes, it came back with a bang in 2019 and has since become one of the top software providers for the local gambling industry. 


Playtech is renowned for its extensive range of online slots games. Besides popular casino titles like Jackpot Giant, Superman, Age of Gods, and The Matrix, Playtech also offers a wide selection of online bingo gaming options. According to stats, Playtech holds above average slot machine payout percentages, which is a critical factor that players consider before selecting a specific game to play.


If there’s an online gambling software provider that can proudly carry the industry patriarch accolade, it is Microgaming. Being the first privately-owned company ever to create online casino software, Microgaming has pushed out quality content since 1994.

Today, Microgaming is one of the most popular software providers for online casinos globally and has over 600 international casino brands under its wing. The company even scored a Guinness Book record when their Mega Moolah jackpot paid out a massive £13,209,300 to a player in the UK in 2015, making this the largest online casino payout in history.

Evolution Gaming

Evolution Gaming is a leading B2B online casino operator that offers services via multiple channels and devices. In 2020, Evolution Gaming acquired the NetEnt brand along with all its gaming titles and another popular wagering software provider, Red Tiger Gaming.

888 Casino

Unlike other online gambling software providers that solely supply their software to established online casinos, 888 Casino operates its own online wagering brand using its unique software. 

888 Casino made a name for itself when it became the first online casino to get licensed in the US in 2013.  Currently, 888 Casino offers more than 100 games on its repertoire, with most of these being live casino games, mobile games, online slots and poker, and sports betting.
