Evolution Gaming Targets New North American State
Published: September 9, 2021
Evolution Gaming continues to establish itself as a leading provider of casino content. Its Commercial Director of North America, Jeff Millar, is happy to announce that the company wants to extend its presence in new states. Evolution is especially excited about entering the Canadian state of Ontario.
Millar has also explained which states in the US are the most promising for his company and potential expansion. In his opinion, entering new states is very challenging when it comes to regulation.
However, once the providers meet specific criteria, there is nothing to prevent them from further progress.
Evolution will keep an eye on several states such as Illinois, Virginia and Indiana. Connecticut has also adopted its legislation, so they are planning to consider the same jurisdiction.
Speaking on Evolution’s plans, Jeff Millar noted:
Several other US states are considering online sports betting, which we can see eventually expanding to iGaming. But the one new North America jurisdiction that has us very excited isn’t in the US at all, it’s in Canada.
Millar underlines that the province of Ontario has nearly 15 million people, which is more than any US state which approves iGaming activities. The company is already working with many operators who want to acquire a commercial license in Ontario.
The date for the market opening is still uncertain, but the gaming regulator looks to launch related activities by upcoming December.
