AGS has added further depth to its Canadian presence after taking its suite of titles live with the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation, which follows an agreement inked earlier in the month alongside Loto-Québec and facilitated by Scientific Games.
This latest partnership has initially seen the company’s Golden Wins game go live and become available to play through the OLG’s internet gaming site, OLG.ca.
“We strive to give our OLG.ca customers enhanced choice and access to new, fresh, cutting-edge games in a safe and secure online environment, and we are confident that AGS will help deliver that for our players,” said Dave Pridmore, OLG chief digital and strategy officer.
“Introducing new digital suppliers like AGS to Ontario enables us to deliver the experiences our players want while keeping those dollars in our province for the benefit of Ontarians. That’s what sets us apart from competitors.”
Additional games will launch via OLG in the Canadian market over the next few months, with Bonanza Blast, Capital Gains, Fu Nan Fu Nu, Rakin Bacon!, and Vegas Stacks, making the transition from land-based casinos across North America.
Matt Reback, AGS executive vice president operations, said: “We are excited about our first online launch in Canada and look forward to continuing to offer more games in OLG’s internet gaming site, OLG.ca over the next few months.
“OLG has been a strong partner and supporter of AGS in land-based casinos, and we look forward to expanding our relationship with our growing library of online gaming content.”
Last month, AGS said that its first quarter performance served “as a testament to the resiliency and durability” of the firm, two months after it asserted that it was better positioned than at any point in its history.
Revenue for the period ending March 31, 2021, increased 1.9 per cent to $55.4m (2020: $54.3m), with growth of the EGM, table products and interactive businesses helping to offset the impact of ongoing sluggishness in the North American slot replacement market.
