Bragg Gaming Group receives igaming licence in Ontario
The operator will launch on the Canadian province’s regulated igaming market when it opens on April 4.
Canada.- Bragg Gaming Group has announced that it has been granted a licence from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). The Canadian province’s regulated igaming market is to open on April 4.
The licence will allow Bragg to supply local igaming and sports betting operators with its player account management (PAM) platform, igaming content, and managed services.
Chris Looney, chief commercial officer at Bragg, said: “This license is another milestone achievement for Bragg. Hot on the heels of our recent launches in the UK, which has similar regulatory standards to Ontario, and the Netherlands, where we successfully launched local partner brands on our PAM, as well as content and aggregation products, we are now fully ready to support our Canadian partners as the market prepares to open up.
“Ontario is where we call home, so we are very excited for the opening of the regulated igaming market here, as it offers significant untapped potential for Bragg to showcase our leading content and platform technology.
“Receiving our supplier license in Ontario will allow us to make consistent progress as we prepare to launch in this exciting marketplace, where we are seeing strong interest from a deep mix of local, and US and international-based operators with both land-based and online backgrounds.”
In January, iGaming Ontario (iGO), a subsidiary of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (ACGO), announced that Ontario would open its legal igaming market on April 4. Approved operators need to sign off on an operating agreement with iGO before being able to launch. Igaming was originally expected to be operational in December 2021.
