Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 4, 2022) - Playgon Games Inc. (TSXV: DEAL) (OTCQB: PLGNF) (FSE: 7CR) ("Playgon" or the "Company"), a propriety SaaS technology company delivering mobile first live dealer technology (VegasLounge™) to online gaming operators globally, is pleased to announce that it has applied for a Gaming Related Supplier - Manufactures License (the "License") with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (the "AGCO"). The License will enable Playgon to supply AGCO approved operators with its live dealer tables from its state of the art studio in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Since the Canadian federal government enacted Bill C-218 in August 2021, paving the way for the provinces to implement a framework for legalized single-event sports wagering, Ontario representing 40% of Canada's population, became the first province to accept applications from private iGaming operators. The AGCO launched its new online gaming market on April 4, 2022. The implementation of Ontario's new online regime will allow private operators to enter the market for the first time. Ontario is the first province in Canada to introduce such a licensing system, where traditionally local lotteries have held a monopoly of the country's gaming sector.
The combined iCasino and Online Sports Betting market in Canada is estimated at over US $2 billion in 2022 according to H2 Gambling Capital. Ontario is widely expected to become one of the largest iGaming markets in North America, with a population over 14 million people.
"Ontario is now a key regulated market we wish to service with our mobile first live dealer technology," states Darcy Krogh, CEO of Playgon Games. "Due to recent operator interest and the renewed licensing regime we decided to move forward with our application and look forward to working with the AGCO to get cleared for this exciting opportunity."
