Play’n GO pushes for safer gambling by joining Canadian Gaming Association


Play’n GO is hoping to ensure player safety and uphold responsible gambling in Canada’s growing igaming market by joining the Canadian Gaming Association.   

Extending its relationship with Canadian players having supplied its slot releases in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec, Play’n GO will join the over 70 CGA members to advocate for a ‘regulated, responsible, sustainable industry’. 

Saam Hafezi, Head of Region, North America at Play’n GO, remarked: “Play’n GO has long advocated for a safe, regulated igaming industry, and we’re proud to join an official body like the CGA that shares those goals.  

“We look forward to collaborating with fellow stakeholders within the Association to achieve a brighter, more sustainable future for us all, and we thank the CGA for accepting our membership application.” 

Having been in business for more than two decades, the CGA represents both operators and suppliers across the Canadian igaming industry, with representatives from gaming, sports betting, esports and lottery businesses. 

Paul Burns, President and CEO at the CGA, added: “We’re pleased to welcome Play’n GO to the CGA. Play’n GO’s values align perfectly with our own – advancing the evolution of Canada’s gaming industry in a safe way that protects players. We’re glad to have them on board.” 

The slot developer recently strengthened its position in the Canadian igaming market by announcing its entry into Québec, forming a deal with Loto-Québec to reach players in La Belle Province.
