More On The Ontario Sports Betting Launch

Both Proline and online Proline+ sportsbook have been available in Ontario through the AGCO. However, a regulated igaming market has been in long anticipation for Canada’s most populous province. Ontario boasts Ottawa, Hamilton, and Toronto cities that are home to several popular professional sports teams.

According to its website, the AGCO has issued gaming operator licenses to over 20 platforms in Ontario. Some launched on April 4, and others will follow shortly after. Even more sportsbooks and online casinos will receive licenses later as operators clamor to enter what will be the largest betting market north of the U.S. border.

Other sportsbooks and online casinos to launch on April 4 were BetMGM Ontario, and BetRivers Ontario.

Unlike in the U.S., Canadian regulators may impose more stringent restrictions on the types and size of user offers. They also have tighter rules on which sporting events and types of wagers are available in Ontario. Bettors should consult the guidelines when using an app in the province.
