Gaming Realms receives igaming supplier licence in Ontario
The Slingo supplier will be allowed to offer its services to operators in Ontario from the opening of the province’s market on April 4.
Canada.- Gaming Realms has been awarded an igaming supplier license in Ontario ahead of the launch of the regulated market on April 4. Via its subsidiary AlchemyBet Limited, the Slingo supplier plans to expand its full portfolio of games in the province.
Michael Buckley, executive chairman of Gaming Realms, said: “Ontario should be a bigger market for Gaming Realms than any of the US states that have regulated so far, so we are very excited to have been awarded our supplier license in this territory.
“Our approval marks an important step in the group’s growth trajectory as we focus on expanding and strengthening our global presence and bringing our hugely popular and innovative Slingo content to new audiences.”
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.
Supplier and operator licenses are distributed by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. Recently, Bragg Gaming Group and 888 Holdings received igaming licences.
In February, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) signed a five-year deal to become the first official sportsbook partner of the NFL in Ontario and Canada.
