The developer's games will be available via Caesars Digital.

Design Works Gaming (DWG) has launched on Caesars Palace Online Casino and Caesars Sportsbook & Casino in Ontario. Caesars Digital is DWG’s pilot partner for its launch in the province. 

The two partnered last month to bring DWG’s games to Pennsylvania, having previously launched in other territories including New Jersey and Michigan. This latest launch follows DWG’s approval for an Ontario gaming license in February, which company Founder and CEO Troy Zurawski called “a momentous milestone for our company.” 

On the launch, Zurawski said, "Launching in Ontario has been a moment we've eagerly awaited at DWG... Working with the entire Caesars Digital team has been an amazing experience. We’re honored that they’ve entrusted us with the opportunity to build custom games with the iconic Caesars brand.” 

Caesars Digital VP of Online Gaming Ricardo Cornejo Rivas added, “Partnering with DWG has brought exciting new content to our online casino players in New Jersey, Michigan, Pennsylvania and now Ontario. From custom Caesars-branded games to classic favorites, we’re glad to bring more content to our gaming catalog that can provide an elevated and enjoyable experience to our players.” 

Caesars Digital is not DWG’s only partner. The company partnered with RSI to launch in Pennsylvania and DraftKings for a Connecticut launch in June, later partnering with Hard Rock Bet in September to launch in New Jersey.  

Ontario is the only Canadian province offering regulated and legalized iGaming, having launched in April 2022. In the province’s Q3 report online gaming revenue reached CA$658m (US$485m), hosting 49 operators and 72 gaming sites. Ontario has even gone on to seek a centralized iGaming self-exclusion solution, on account of the popularity of iGaming in the province.
