Who We Are and What We Do for You
Casino Canuck is the brainchild of Alan Jones and Janet Ginsburg, two passionate Canadian casino gaming experts who have dedicated their time and their considerable expertise to helping Canadians find safe and reputable online casino destinations. Alan first saw the need to set up a comprehensive online casino gambling portal after his own good and bad online casino gambling experiences. After being unable to find the kind of information that he needed to make good online gambling choices, he realized that other Canadians may be struggling in the same way. Alan recruited Janet Ginsburg, an online casino gaming expert and consultant who has been involved in the online casino industry since the industry’s formative years. In early 2016 as a joint collaboration, they launched Casino Canuck.
Alan grew up in small town in New Brunswick and moved to Toronto to attend U of T where he originally met Janet who appreciated his encyclopedic knowledge of Kids in the Hall. Janet is a BC native who went to Simon Fraser before doing her grad work at U of T, where she met Alan and promptly kicked his ass in a hockey pool. They have played in sports pools together from before “the Internet”, would generally “bet on anything” and are poker enthusiasts. Years and careers later they would reunite to produce what you see here.
Quite literally, Casino Canuck also has a sister site in NZ, RealMoneyCasinos.co.nz. Alan’s sister, who prefers to stay behind the scenes, moved to NZ nearly 20 years ago when she met New Zealander Stewart Anderson and they run a great online casino resource specifically for Kiwis. Together with David Taylor, they put out some great content to pair with shared content between the websites.
Why are there two different sites? Well, we can tell you that even though things like casino games and online slots are mostly the same, what is available and popular in each country differs dramatically. Heck, NZ players call online slots pokies for starters. Banking methods, software providers and bonuses offered are all geo-targeted. Also some online casinos restrict which countries can even sign up and some do not take CAD or NZD.
