Casumo, PokerStars Get Ontario Licenses

Online betting operators Casumo and PokerStars have both gotten approval to operate in the Canadian province of Ontario after the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario gave both groups gaming licenses.

Both groups were granted gaming licenses with PokerStars parent group TSG Interactive having theirs effective from June 8th, 2022 through June 7th, 2024. Casumo parent Pret Play's license is good from June 8th, 2022 to June 7th, 2023.

The province has seen an influx of betting options since it launched online gaming in April. Already, there are big-name groups like bet365, Caesars, Unibet, 888, Betway, LeoVegas, and others all offering services. Currently, Ontario punters can get their hands on slots, table games, video poker, standard online poker, and sportsbetting services in the province.

Neither company issued a statement on the licensing as of press time. We expect both sites to be up and running in the next few days.

Pokerstars comes as no surprise. But I was a bit surprised about Casumo that they got the Ontario license rather quickly, considering the fact they've had some troubles in other regulated markets, especially with their strict source of wealth requests for players.
