Scientific Games Corporation, doing business as Light & Wonder, has been granted a supplier licence by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), which will see the company enter the newly regulated Ontario iGaming market on 4th April.
The license will allow the company to supply approved operators with its industry leading OpenGaming content aggregation platform, which features a breadth of iGaming content and supporting marketing tools to deliver a world class gaming experience.
Ontario-licensed operators will have instant access to the ecosystem’s vast range of in-house developed games, including titles such as 88 Fortunes, Marvelous Mouse Coin Combo, Dancing Drums Explosion and Chicken Fox 5x Skillstar as well as releases from some of the globe’s biggest third-party game studios.
Ontario becomes the sixth regulated jurisdiction in North America where operators have access to Light & Wonder’s diverse content portfolio, following in the footsteps of the company’s successful operations in New Jersey, Connecticut, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
This news follows Light & Wonder’s successful rebrand, supporting its bid to position itself as the leading cross-platform gaming company in the world.
Robert Hays, Light & Wonder’s managing director in the Americas commented: “We can’t begin to overstate how excited we are to be operating in Ontario, this is a market where our games have resonated with players for years and now to expand to the private sector is an incredible opportunity and fantastic milestone for the company.”
The OpenGaming ecosystem delivers more than 2500 games from a global network of in-house and third-party game studios with unrivalled ease of integration that is robust and secure.
All games available through OpenGaming are supported with a comprehensive range of responsible gambling tools, helping to deliver a safe and enjoyable gaming experience for players.
