Playtech and NorthStar Join Forces for Canada Launch
Online gaming technology provider Playtech has signed a strategic agreement with NorthStar to make its suite of casino games and sports betting platform available to NorthStar Canadian players.
The new partnership will allow NorthStar to benefit from Playtech exclusive games and technology platform to deliver an excellent Canadian-focused online casino and sports betting experience for its members when it debuts. It will also allow Playtech to launch its IMS platform, casino, live casino, poker, and bingo technology in Ontario.
We are delighted to announce our partnership with NorthStar Gaming as it prepares to launch its market-leading online gaming business in Canada. Our success is driven by strategic partnerships with industry-leading operators around the world, and we are excited to partner with a leading entertainment company like NorthStar Gaming. At Playtech, we are driven to deliver a sustainable, commercially viable, and engaging entertainment experience – for the benefit of all stakeholders.
NorthStar Gaming was launched in Ontario as an online betting brand and sportsbook in March 2021. The company soon after partnered with Torstar Corporation, a local media giant operating in Canada since 1862.
In October, the Ontario government released final iGaming, sports, and event betting regulatory standards, thereby opening up the market for private competition and partnerships like the one NorthStar just signed with Playtech.
NorthStar Gaming is thrilled to be the exclusive Canadian partner in the media and publishing sector with Playtech, the world’s leading gambling technology supplier. Playtech’s industry-leading suite of tools will give us an unmatched edge in the marketplace, given our proprietary content and localization – something we know consumers are looking for.
