888 Secures Ontario Online Gambling License
Published: March 11, 2022
The UK-based online gaming and betting operator 888 has obtained license approval in Ontario, which will allow the company to offer services to customers in the country’s most populous province.
The famous 888 casino will also be one of the first operators to launch in Ontario once its regulated market opens on April 4.
According to available information, 888 will offer a wide range of services, from online casino to sports and poker. The operator’s in-house developed technology powers all products.
Apart from Ontario, 888 holds licenses in nineteen regulated markets. This includes seven jurisdictions in the US.
The application process began last September when the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) started processing applications from operators and suppliers.
Itai Pazner, Chief Executive Officer at 888, said:
We are delighted to have been awarded a licence by the AGCO and look forward to launching in the market when it officially opens. As a Group, our focus is on strengthening our presence and offer to customers across key regulated markets. To that end, Ontario represents an attractive long-term growth opportunity for 888, and this is an extremely strategically important milestone for us.
888 is one of the most popular casino operators in online gambling. The company was established in 1997 and today holds licenses in some of the most important markets in the world.
