With the regulated Ontario gambling industry booming, many of the top online casino gaming brands are looking to enter the market this year. The main hold up for many of the operators is the acquisition of licences from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. To provide legal and regulated online gambling in the province, each casino brand must hold a igaming licence from the AGCO.
There are just over 30 casinos currently registered with the AGCO and about 30 others who have applied for licences. Not all casino brands which have been provided licences by the AGCO have launched in Ontario. Three of the top casino brands that have already secured a licence and should be coming out with products any time now are:
1. Spin Casino
Part of the Super Group gaming company, Spin Casino was approved to provide online gmalbing in Ontario, along with Royal Vegas, Jackpot City, and Ruby Fortune. Based on their international platform, the brand will likely provide a top collection of online casino games, which includes live casino titles and one of the better slots sections.
The site should also offer a mobile app version of the casino which can be downloaded on both iOS and Android devices. It is still unclear if a sports betting section will be provided alongside the online casino.
2. Bally Casino
The Bally Casino is ready to roll out in Ontario and is expected to be followed by a Bally Bet Sportsbook at some point. The popular Bally brand is one of the more recognizable names in the casino industry, with a large following in Vegas and other popular gambling destinations.
As far as online casinos go, Bally Casino is up there with the best of them. The site will likely provide one of the biggest casino game collections which includes slots, table games, video poker, jackpots and live casino games.
Bally Bet is currently live in multiple US states including Arizona, New York, Colorado, Indiana, Virginia, and Iowa. While no timeline has been set for the sportsbook to enter the Ontario market, given that Bally Casino has already acquired the necessary licences, it seems inevitable that a sports betting section will follow.
3. Jackpot City
Another member of the Super Group, Jackpot City, as you’d expect, is known for its selection of jackpot games. The brand also has one of the top mobile applications in the Canadian market at the moment, making it easy to access casino games from wherever you may be.
One of the other great perks of playing at Jackpot City is that the site generally offers Bingo and Keno, which aren’t available at most other online casinos in the region.
