LeoVegas Group is on the verge of fully entering Ontario’s iGaming space, having recently gained approval from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) to launch its services in the province’s regulated market.

The AGCO clarified that while LeoVegas had not yet received a licence, the operator is now registered as an iGaming operator, leaving it on the verge of a full-on launch.

Update: LeoVegas has officially entered the Ontario iGaming market.

To gain this vital seal of approval, LeoVegas will have to sign an operating agreement with AGCO subsidiary, Gaming Ontario, a regulatory body tasked with oversight of the market, following its April 4 launch.

Much to Offer

With no apparent obstacles to LeoVegas’ final approval, the company is now poised to offer Ontarians online casino, live casino and betting via its LeoVegas and Royal Panda brands.

LeoVegas stated that the Ontario launch plays perfectly into its strategy to expand in locally regulated markets and markets on the verge of regulation. The operator also intends to plant its flag in the US later in the year, with New Jersey as its starting point.

LeoVegas CEO, Gustaf Hagman said

Over recent years, the LeoVegas brand has become the third most well-known casino brand in the Canadian market and Royal Panda has shown strong growth, a clear sign that the mobile gaming experience we offer is appreciated by North American customers.

Our full focus now is to complete the process and we look forward to launch in a regulated environment. Given our track record and knowledge to operate in regulated markets we continue to have high expectations and ambitions for continued growth in the Ontario market,” he added.

LeoVegas joins other industry major players like  Rush Street Interactive and 888 who have also gained approval to operate in the hotly anticipated Ontario market.
