This week it was revealed that Ontario's gaming regulator iGaming Ontario licensed both bet365 and FanDuel ahead of the regulated iGaming market launch in the country next month.
The licensing will see both operators able to offer their online games wares in the Canadian province on April 4th, and comes just days after mobile specialist LeoVegas was granted approval to launch. Other prominent names that'll be live in Ontario on April 4th include Rush Street Interactive, 888, theScoreBet, and Rivalry.
Ontario lawmakers legalized online sportsbetting and casino gaming after liberalizing the market away from PlayOGA. The province is home to the largest chunk of Canada's population, with major cities like Toronto, Hamilton, and Ottawa all within its borders.
There have been a bunch of casino operators applying for licenses in Ontario, and recently the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario warned any operators that are looking for a license to cease activity while they apply for certification.
