An “immensely proud” and “landmark” moment has been heavily praised by FSB after becoming the latest group to disclose its imminent entry into Ontario.

The B2B igaming and sports betting service provider is to launch in the Canadian province after securing regulatory approval from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.

Dave McDowell, Chief Executive Officer at FSB, noted: “This hugely exciting news is a landmark moment for FSB and adds further fuel to our aggressive, forward momentum in the North American region.

“The pre-market opening approval from the AGCO pays a huge tribute to the quality of our technology, services and people as we push forward in global regulated markets in 2022.”

As a result of its latest North American growth, FSB will supply omnichannel sportsbook and online casino aggregation services to operator partners in the territory.

Heaping further acclaim on the impending market entry as a “significant achievement,” the move into Ontario comes weeks after news of a sports wagering deal in South Dakota.

“It’s an immensely proud moment for our FSB North American team to be one of the first suppliers to receive AGCO certification,” stated Bob Akeret, Vice President of Operations, North America at FSB.

“Being licensed as a gaming related supplier as the market opens puts us in a strong position to play a leading role in Ontario and build further and faster on the major growth we have achieved in North America over the last 12 months. This is an opportunity we look forward to embracing.”

Beginning April 4, private gaming operators that have registered with the AGCO and have executed an operating agreement with iGaming Ontario can begin offering their games to players in the region.

Earlier in the week, the Responsible Gambling Council disclosed that its RG Check accreditation program had been “embedded into the requirements for all online gaming operators entering the Ontario marketplace” by the iGC.

This program, which is already utilised by land-based casinos in the region, will aim to ensure the highest standards of responsible gambling are maintained when operators enter the market.
