A promise to deliver the “full Casumo experience” has been made by the online casino operator after becoming the latest addition to Ontario’s igaming ecosystem.

This comes after the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario issued a licence to the online sports betting and igaming operator, alongside PokerStars’ parent company TSG Interactive Canada, in June 2022.

The company confirmed that “we’re now up and running in the regulated Canadian province” on social media, where it joins almost 50 other incumbents on the region’s digital casino scene that includes the likes of BetMGM, PlayOJO, LeoVegas, Play Fallsview, DraftKings and FanDuel, among others.

This North American high point for Casumo comes after the entity was reprimanded by the Danish Gambling Authority, Spillemyndigheden, earlier this year for breaching the rules on identification and risk assessment in the Anti-Money Laundering Act. 

“We’re thrilled to be one of the first operators licensed in the Ontario market, it’s a testament to the agility of our people and our tech. We’re excited to get going with our plans to bring Casumo magic to the fingertips of players all across Ontario,” Garry McGibbon, VP Commercial at Casumo, said of the group’s latest point of entry.

Last month, it was reported that Ontario’s online gaming market performance results for the second-quarter witnessed an increase of almost C$2bn on Q1’s total wagers figures.

iGaming Ontario declared total wagers of $6.04bn for the period ending September 30, an increase on Q1’s $4.07bn without promotional wagers factored in.

The regulator also reported $267m in total gaming revenue for operators during the quarter, a sizable increase from $162m.

Active player accounts were also up on the previous quarter, reaching 628,000 with an average spend of $142 compared to 492,000 and a $113 average.

Total revenue is represented by total cash wagers, which includes tournament, rake and other fees from 24 operators and 42 gaming websites (Q1: 18 operators, 31 websites).
