DraftKings Launches in Ontario

American online gaming company DraftKings announced that they've gone live in the Canadian province of Ontario after having been granted approval to launch ops in the market weeks back.

The company will now have the ability to offer online casino games like slots, table games, video poker, and other titles to customers in the province. Additionally, the company will be able to offer wagers on sports like hockey, baseball, football, soccer, and more. The launch comes as the NHL playoffs are underway, but after one of the province's home teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs, choked in the first round and were eliminated.

Regarding the launch, DraftKings CEO Jason Robins said, "DraftKings' entry into Canada with our online sportsbook and online casino products is a significant milestone in our expansion efforts as we reach nearly 40-percent of Canada's total population."

"We look forward to providing the passionate fanbase in Ontario with the most entertaining and responsible gaming experience possible."
