Ontario continues to see an influx of firms embarking into the recently-regulated market as both PressEnter and BetGames enter the North American region.

1X2 Network has further strengthened its standing in North America, having secured approval from Ontario regulators for a full launch in the Canadian province. 

The London-based games developer detailed that market entry in Ontario falls under its wider growth strategy to expand its suite of slots and table games content into non-European regulated jurisdictions. 

Included in the launch are its Wolf Strike, Blazing 777s, Battle Maidens, Battle Maidens Cleopatra, Book of Ba’al and Phoenix Inferno titles, developed by the 1X2gaming and Iron Dog Studio subsidiaries. 

Rory Kimber, Account Management and Marketing Director at 1X2 Network, said: “Ontario promises to be one of the largest online casino markets in North America, so it made absolute sense for 1X2 Network as a leading provider of premium slot and table game content to enter the province.”

Ontario marks the second Canadian market where 1X2 has secured a presence, following on from a supply agreement with Loto-Québec for provision of its full gaming suite. 

1X2 first secured its partnership with the Quebec state lottery and gaming provider in 2010, and enhanced its agreement with the firm earlier this year to offer its Branded Megaways mechanic in the province. 

The firm has further laid out plans for a future roadmap of new titles designed to ‘appeal to player preferences’ in Canada, with a rollout set to commence shortly. 

“Having gained experience in delivering our games to players in Canada via our partnership with Loto-Québec, we know exactly what it takes to engage, entertain and excite players, and the suite of content that we will launch in Ontario has been designed to do just that,” Kimber continued.

“It is great to see that some of the biggest brands in the market are planning to integrate our content into their game lobbies, and we look forward to seeing players in Ontario enjoy the thrilling experience that each title has to offer.”

Outside of North America, 1X2 holds certifications in the UK, Malta, Gibraltar, the Isle of Man, Sweden, Spain, Colombia, Italy, Romania and Greece.
