Some of the 2022 Highlights
FansUnite had a busy 2022, as the B.C. company reached some important milestones. One of those is debuting into Ontario’s regulated iGaming market. In March 2022, the company was registered by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario as a fully registered supplier of sports betting and internet gaming in Ontario. This allowed debuting in the market as soon as it launched on April 4, 2022.
Shortly prior to its license registration, the sports betting firm praised Ontario for its open online gaming model for private operators. Back then, Mr. Burton, said such a market is a major landmark for the province and for the entire Canadian gaming industry. He explained that his company has been a huge supporter of the cause and it is now pleased to see the progress.
