888 Becomes Latest Ontario License Holder
888 (LON: 888), a global casino and sportsbook operator, has acquired an iGaming license for the Ontario market.
After fulfilling all necessary regulatory requirements, the betting and gaming firm was awarded the license by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).
The license would enable the company to offer the 888casino plus the poker and sports betting services in the jurisdiction when the market officially launches on April 4.
The Ontario iGaming has been slated to open by April 4 with operators that had registered with the AGCO and received licenses from its online gaming division iGaming Ontario (iGO). Some of these operators include PointsBet and theScore, among others.
We are delighted to have been awarded a license by the AGCO and look forward to launching in the market when it officially opens. As a group, our focus is on strengthening our presence and offer to customers across key regulated markets. To that end, Ontario represents an attractive long-term growth opportunity for 888, and this is an extremely strategically important milestone for us.
With Ontario in the bag, 888 is now licensed in 19 regulated markets around the world, including seven jurisdictions in the United States.
