The floodgates have well and truly opened in Ontario since the legalization of online gambling, meaning a fabulous selection of world renowned betting operators are setting up stalls to showcase exactly why you should choose them over ever increasing competition.
One particularly flamboyant site vying for your attention is Dream Vegas Ontario online casino. Our expectations are high considering their reputation, but we’re taking nothing for granted. Here we’ll be examining everything that has made them such a world famous name and determining whether you are looking for a new online bookmaker will be getting the very best.
Before our Dream Vegas review gets into examining whether this operator can be considered among the best betting sites in Ontario, we must first understand the legal situation. Firstly, generally speaking, online gambling has been made legal in Ontario. This includes both sports betting and casino gambling. This means a future Dream Vegas Ontario sportsbook is possible – although such a thing is not currently available at the time of writing, as Dream Vegas has thus far chosen to focus on its casino offering.
As far as the legality of Dream Vegas in Ontario goes, they’re managed by White Hat Gaming Limited, who were granted legal registration by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario in April 2022. This means they’re legally permitted to offer gambling services to you.
In terms of the look of the site, there’s no doubting the signature style of the Dream Vegas casino. Vegas isn’t just part of its name – it’s part of the general ambience, style and aesthetic of the site. By allowing all the colors of the games to burst from a black backdrop, it gives that distinctly late night casino vibe which so many enjoy. It might not be for everyone, but it will no doubt have plenty of fans.
Whether you like it is a matter of personal preference, but it’s certainly as well executed as any on the Ontario online casino list. Certainly, its dedication to creating this atmosphere is so great that we’re unsure how a potential future Dream Vegas Ontario sportsbook would synchronize with its style – although if it was possible in our LeoVegas Ontario review, we suppose anything is possible.
The design is also excellent from a structural perspective. After our eyes settled from the initial blast of decadence which greeted them, we found everything easy to navigate here – which is important with so many games on offer. We had no complaints technically. Registration, banking, navigation and playing games all went without hiccups and were seamlessly fast.
It’s mixed news here for those hoping for a Dream Vegas Ontario app. Unlike, say, the Unibet Ontario online casino, which has app options regardless of device, Dream Vegas currently only has an app available on the Apple app store, and not the Google Play store. This means if you are on an Android device, you won’t have an app for this operator available. It also doesn’t have a dedicated Dream Vegas sports Ontario app.
However, on a practical level this needn’t be too much of a negative. You can access the site via their browser from pretty much any mobile device, and it works very well. In fact, some of the best online gambling sites in Ontario don’t have an Android app too, so we wouldn’t count them out for that. But we do hope their Dream Vegas Ontario app, which is excellent, does find an Android home sometime in the near future.
Unlike traveling all the way to Las Vegas, getting into the Dream Vegas casino only takes a few minutes. To the top right of the screen, there’s a ‘Join’ button. If you are clicking here, you will be taken to the Dream Vegas registration page. You then input your first and last name, gender, birth date, country and province to complete the first step.
Next up will be contact details. These include your email, phone number and address. It’s important to note at this point – because most people are aware that most sites have a one person per account rule but don’t know that includes contact details – that any doubling up of details here could lead to account suspension. This is common, and as expected for a Royal Panda Ontario sportsbook review as it is here.
The last step asks for a username, password and confirmation of preferred currency and acceptance of the terms and conditions, privacy and funds policy. All that remains is to hit ‘Sign up’. This will also be the same account for players using the app. Simple and welcoming.
The banking options available at Dream Vegas are outlined at the bottom of the home screen. They are, according to the terms and conditions, subject to change, but at the time of writing, we can confirm that they include the following: Apple Pay, Bank Transfer, Instadebit, Interac, Klarna, Maestro, Mastercard, MuchBetter, Neteller, PayPal, Paysafecard, Paytrail, Rapid Transfer, Skrill, SoFort, Trustly, Visa and more.
It’s a fantastically broad selection of options. Minimum deposits and withdrawals are generally $20. The maximum deposits depend on the individual payment methods, with no set amount across the entirety of these options – although they’re as expected and you can contact customer service if you have a specific question about an individual option. There’s no set maximum withdrawal as far as we can tell, and this may be impacted by the identification checks you have gone through. This is standard practice and their reputation for high payouts is excellent, so we aren’t especially concerned in that regard.
Finally, there are no added fees, and the process of depositing and withdrawal is a breeze. All this makes Dream Vegas an excellent operator with regards to banking.
One of our absolute favorite parts of this Dream Vegas review – and one which came as a surprise even with their excellent reputation – was their customer service. Let’s start off with what will be the most important part for the majority of players and that’s the live chat. This is available 24 hours, 7 days a week. They’re also available if you are not signed in, meaning if you have any questions before deciding to register, you can get all your questions answered beforehand. If you are looking for a Dream Vegas Ontario phone number you’ll be out of luck, but the live chat should be of great consolation.
Just as important is that the staff are clearly trained to a very high standard. They were able to answer all of our questions efficiently and to completion, and were friendly while doing so. In addition, there’s also the fact that the site explains itself very well throughout – despite there being no specific Help section. We imagine you will rarely have to go to customer service at all.
Finally, there’s an email option which does take a little longer – perhaps a few hours – but can provide a permanent record of conversations. Excellent stuff all round.
As mentioned previously, there’s no issue in terms of the licensing or legality of Dream Vegas for players in Ontario, owing to the recent license provided to their managing company White Hat Gaming Limits back in April. This may not appear on all versions of the site at the time of writing – you will likely instead see licenses from Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. Nonetheless, we checked with news reports and with the customer service team that White Hat Gaming Limited is indeed licensed for business in Ontario specifically.
We wonder if Dream Vegas was named in part for the absolute dream team of incredible software developers which have come up to bat for this truly epic casino. If it sounds like we’re exaggerating, consider that well over 100 – including some of the biggest names in the industry, like IGT and Pragmatic Play – call Dream Vegas their home.
Lesser known studios, at least to a casual player, also push the boundaries within this operator’s neon-lit virtual walls, like Silverback and SthlmGaming. This means quite simply that they have the capacity for a level of variety and quality that is near unmatched.
And they don’t just have one of the most immense selections of betting providers we’ve ever had the pleasure of coming across, but they’re putting them to work. Classics like poker, roulette and jackpot meet innovative slots, must go jackpots, scratch and win, and drop and go games, to name just some of the most common genres found here. This makes what is surely one of the most extensive game collections ever found under a single domain.
The ability to select between operators too really helps players appreciate the depth of games available beyond mere game types, as they get to know all the distinctive flavors which distinguish so many excellent creators.
There was a small concern – just for a moment or two – that the live casino could drop the ball on what has so far been a near perfect casino experience. And yet again, they’ve gone beyond our expectations.
Ezuki, Evolution Gaming, and Pragmatic Play team up here for a truly immense selection of games. Various versions of roulette, Sic Bo, Texas Hold Em and dice games are available, alongside tons of creative, unexpected options like Side Bet City, Dragon Tiger, and Football Studio, to name just a few examples. Whichever players choose, that trademark quality remains consistent.
Like many of the best casinos, Dream Vegas leaves it up to the individual game to decide upon limits. The good news is they’re typically very broad. It’s not usual to find a game that offers bets at mere cents but with the ability to go as high as even the highest of rollers could possibly desire. The variety available for every game type also means that it’s unlikely there’ll ever be a game players want to play that doesn’t suit their budget.
Very rarely does a betting site live up to its name but we view this trip to a virtual Vegas to truly be a dream come true. It’s an epic playground for casino fans of pretty much every type imaginable. A festival of the greatest minds in the industry showcasing their talents on a site that’s more than capable of making the most of them. Nothing is quite perfect when it comes to online operators, but this is pretty close.
As we know not everyone is a technological wizard, one thing we always pay special attention to when analyzing and reviewing any operator is whether they would be easy to use for the average person. It’s but one of the many things we investigate as part of our Dream Vegas review.
Many people will already be aware that on an international level, Dream Vegas is considered a safe, fair and legitimate betting site. However, this doesn’t mean they’re necessarily licensed or legal in the province of Ontario. Before we get down to looking at the games, design or anything else, our Dream Vegas review will address this question.
While there are many important things which can make a betting operator good, bad or even great, such as site design and a wide variety of banking options, the thing people are excited about are the casino games themselves. That’s why alongside getting all the important fundamentals out the way, we’ll be sure that our Dream Vegas review covers the kind of casino game variety available on the site.
Dream Vegas may initially catch your attention with its late night good looks. As much as any betting site we’ve come across in Ontario, this is one with a truly distinctive sense of style and ambience. However, it’s far from style over substance. You may come for the bright lights but will surely stay for the sound fundamentals which make this site such a joy to use from start to finish.
Around the clock customer service isn’t the only way in which they go above and beyond in terms of the Dream Vegas Ontario online casino experience. It’s a beautifully designed site – both on browser and through the Apple Store mobile app – and the banking process is both simple and versatile. Add to that a great selection of games and we have an easy recommendation.
