Sportsbetting information company Genius Sports has announced that they're going to be offering their services in the province of Ontario in Canada after the group was granted approval by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
The approval came just in time for the launch of the Ontario liberalized online market, which began operation yesterday (April 4th). Genius provides sports data to operators to provide real-time odds and product offerings to players. The company specializes in providing CFL, CPL, NFL, and NHL data services.
As of press time, Genius hadn't revealed who they're working with.
Regarding the licensing Genius Sports CEO Mark Locke said, "I am delighted that Genius Sports has become one of the first sportsbook providers to win approval from the AGCO. This approval underscores Genius Sports' exemplary track record in compliance, and we are excited to be in a position to deliver our market-leading sportsbook data and technology to our customers in Ontario from day one."
