Canada.- Inspired Entertainment has been approved for a gaming supplier licence from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (ACGO). The licence allows Inspired to offer its games to AGCO-approved operators in the province of Ontario. The province´s igaming market opens to licensed operators on April 4.

The company plans to launch its igaming portfolio in the province during the second quarter of this year. At launch, it will have 25 games, including Big Spin Bonus, Big Fishing Fortune and the retro title Space Invaders.

Claire Osborne, Inspired’s VP of interactive, said: “Ontario’s igaming market officially opens to licensed operators on 4 April 2022 and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the newly regulated iGaming market. With a population of nearly 15 million people, Ontario’s demographics compare favourably to states like New Jersey or Michigan, where we already operate.

“We expect Ontario to present a significant market opportunity for us, and we look forward to players in Ontario enjoying our games.”

In Canada, Inspired is partnered with Loto-Québec and offers interactive online casino content to residents in Quebec through Loto-Québec’s website.

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) continues to approve igaming operators and suppliers. LeoVegas Group has been registered as an igaming operator and Play’n GO was awarded a supplier licence that will see the company’s portfolio made available for players when the regulated market opens.

Rush Street Interactive has been granted an igaming licence for its online casino and sportsbook brand BetRivers. In the last weeks, Gaming Realms, Bragg Gaming Group and 888 Holdings also received igaming licences in the province.
