In January 2022, iGaming Ontario (iGO) announced that the regulated online iGaming market is set to launch on April 4th, 2022. From that date onwards, any gambling site with the correct licensing can offer online casino games and sports betting to anyone within the borders of Ontario. Previously, only government-backed operators were available to residents. Now private operators can obtain valid regulation from the AGCO and launch in the province.
Many international operators have already acquired Ontario gambling licenses and are planning on launching in the province. These renowned casino slot sites and sportsbooks may bring exclusive Ontario welcome bonuses for new customers and new mobile apps, allowing players to gamble on the go from anywhere in Ontario.
So far, around 30 operators have already applied for a license in the province, which will delight Ontario gamblers. This means there will be tons of betting options when it comes to choosing how to gamble. Some of the biggest gambling operators globally looking to join the Canadian market include Caesars, BetMGM, DraftKings, BetRivers, FanDuel, 888, and others.
