Play’n Go marks Canadian entry via ‘important province’ Ontario licence

Play’n Go has embarked on its Canadian journey as the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario grants the firm a supplier licence. 

The gaining of the AGCO licence will allow the company’s igaming suite to be made available for players when the newly regulated market opens on April 4. 

“Regulated markets are vital not just to Play’n Go’s business strategy, but to the industry as a whole; they ensure a safe gaming environment for players, and operators can focus on providing a fun and entertaining experience that is truly sustainable,” explained Magnus Olsson, Chief Commercial Officer for Play’n Go.

“Ontario is an important province representing some 40 per cent of the population of Canada, and we look forward to players there enjoying our games.

“However, Ontario represents just the first stage in Play’n GO’s North American entry strategy that will see our titles shortly be made available in selected regulated US state level igaming jurisdictions for the very first time.

“With Ontario’s regulated market opening, followed by our entry into the USA, it’s set to be an exciting year for Play’n Go.”

The approval will mark Play’n Go as one of the first suppliers to enter the market with titles such as Rise of Olympus, Book of Dead, Reactoonz, and Tome of Madness, becoming available to residents of Ontario. 

Sissel Weitzhandler, Chief Risk and Compliance Officer for Play’n Go, added: “Our strategy remains to engage with all regulated jurisdictions, and we thank the AGCO for our licence award. 

“The opening of Ontario’s regulated market is exciting and an important milestone in Play’n Go’s North America journey. We look forward to supporting our partners in Ontario from April 4 onwards.”
