Ontario, Canada’s most populous and richest province, is ready to welcome more private operators and suppliers on its iGaming market as the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario issued several new licenses.
iGaming Ontario, the subsidiary of Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario that is in charge of the province’s competitive gambling and betting market, has announced that it granted licenses to operate in the province to Bet365, FanDuel and Unibet, some of the biggest global brands in sports betting and online gambling.
In addition to those big names, other operators were granted licenses, including Annexio Limited, which will operate under the Lotogo brand, Coolbear, Fitzdares and NSUS Limited, which will operate under the World Series of Poker (WSOP) brand.
In recent weeks, big online casino brands such as LeoVegas, Rush Street Interactive, Rivalry, theScoreBet and 888 also secured licenses from iGaming Ontario. The province’s gambling market will formally launch on 4 April and the licenses run from that day through to 3 April 2024.
