April is approaching, and with it, the opening of potentially one of the most popular markets in the iGaming industry – Ontario. This iGaming market should be launched on April 4, and it will be operated by brands that have guaranteed the necessary licenses.
One of the companies that will be the first to enter Ontario is Rush Street Interactive (RSI) thanks to the green light that the brand received from the esteemed authorities – the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).
Wide Offering to be Available
RSI plans to launch its iGaming as well as online sports betting offering on this market via the BetRivers brand.
Although this fast-growing brand is currently present in this state with its free-to-play social games platform, after the launch of the new market, the operator will offer its sportsbook to punters from Ontario as well as a real-money casino. From April 4, Canada will be on the list of countries that have legalized casinos to offer real-money products including the United States and Colombia.
Richard Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of RSI, gave the following statement: ”The receipt of our registration in Ontario is an important milestone that demonstrates our commitment to operating only in legalized markets where we pay local taxes, and we are grateful for the trust of the AGCO. We are now one step closer to launching the BetRivers real-money online casino and sportsbook in Ontario and bringing our unique betting options, such as our innovative peer-to-peer slot tournaments or same game parlays, fast payouts, and award-winning customer service to the province’s millions of residents.”
Other Brands Present in Ontario As Well
This is just one of the famous brands that will leave its footprint in Canada on April 4. Operators PointsBet and theScore have also announced their presence in Ontario after guaranteeing the necessary licenses in recent months.
In addition to the operators, many developers have joined the race to enter this market. One of the providers to receive the green light from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) is the Bragg Gaming Group which will launch its content on the market as soon as it is open.
