Wizard Games Makes its Ontario Debut

Aspire Global’s Wizard Games continues to establish itself as a top gaming brand in the North American gaming industry. Most recently, the gaming supplier announced that it will enter Ontario via BetMGM and 888casino. This is possible after being approved by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario to operate in the province’s open iGaming market for private operators.

Ontario’s market kicked off on April 4, 2022, and operators that have received regulatory approval from the AGCO are now able to go live in the province. According to the province, over 14 operators launched with the start of the market, as several others will also roll out their digital offerings to local gamblers in the coming days.

Now in Ontario

After securing the required approval from the AGCO, Wizard Games is now ready to make its debut in the newly regulated market via partnerships with BetMGM and 888casino. Its integration will be done via Aspire Global’s Pariplay, which is a leading provider and aggregator of gaming titles. Via its Fusion™ platform, the latter has collected hundreds of titles from top-class developers.

Currently, Wizard Games’ collection boasts over 120 engaging online games, including the fan-favorite titles Rumble Rhino, Wolf Riches, and Dragons of the North. Soon, when the supplier goes live in the Province of Ontario, local eligible gamblers will be able to test them out on their mobile devices and familiarize themselves with their compelling mechanics, features, and rewards.

The provider’s portfolio of distinguished iGaming titles is currently live in numerous key markets across the world. This includes several important European markets, New Jersey, West Virginia, and Alberta in North America. The company has identified the North American market as a key growth region to expand its area of operations, as it is looking to enter new jurisdictions.

Joey Hurtado, Managing Director at the slot provider commented that the developer’s titles are enjoying quite the success in North America. According to him, the company’s entry into Ontario is the latest step in the supplier’s growth trajectory. He said that the team is now ready to go off on its new journey to provide entertaining content to the Ontarian gambling fans.

Now Live

As the market has now gone live, eligible gambling residents of Ontario will have plenty of variety when it comes to gaming and sports wagering online. For instance, Aspire Global’s Pariplay has also received permission to become part of the new regime. The brand has aggregated content from over 80 partner studios, which can now be offered to other provincially registered operators.

And when it comes to sports wagering, leading sportsbook operator Bet365 has also gained access to the regulated Ontario market. The sportsbook which previously operated in the grey market has now made the shift and it will offer its already-familiar sport wagering products but in regulation with the province. In addition to that, the app also offers exceptional casino titles, poker games, and slots games.
