Gambling tech firm Playtech has announced it has signed multiple partnerships in Ontario after the launch of its regulated igaming market last week.
Launching partnerships with RNG Casino and Live before a full range of new partnerships to be announced in the coming weeks, Playtech went live in Ontario on April 4, the first day of the regulated igaming market.
Shimon Akad, COO at Playtech, said: “This is a significant market in size and a major milestone for Playtech in North America. We are thrilled to have launched with multiple licensees on day one and we are looking forward to continuing to launch with more of our partners in the coming days.
“We also expect Ontario to be at the forefront of responsible gambling, where our technology and ability through artificial intelligence to analyse certain player behaviour will be particularly relevant and important.”
Playtech previously had a presence in Canada’s most populous province via the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, for which it had served as a data analytics provider.
Charmaine Hogan, Head of Regulatory Affairs at Playtech, added: “As we continue to enhance our efforts on sustainability of the gambling sector in general, we wholeheartedly welcome Ontario’s iGaming market launch.
“An efficient regulatory framework brings operators and suppliers under local oversight and, as is the case in Ontario, with a strong emphasis on the protection of players from the outset.”
