This the first time the company has released its brand in Canada.

Amelco has announced a product launch in the Canadian province of Ontario. The pending release marks the company’s Canadian debut.

The company recently gained a gaming-related supplier license from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).

Brandon Walker, Head of Amelco US, described the latest release as a “significant milestone” and said that the company hopes to gain a significant foothold within the region.

He commented, “This represents a significant milestone for us, and we are thrilled to be finally entering Ontario, where we are confident that both our sportsbook and iGaming products will prove to be very popular.

“Moving into an area with such a rich sporting history boosts our hopes of making an immediate impact within the space and with multiple operators already lined up to go live, we are confident of making a fast start in the province.

"We have huge plans coming up over the next 12 months and we want to expand our presence across Canada as other provinces are granted licenses.”

The company said it has “high expectations” following the Ontario launch.

The group said in a statement, “The extensive popularity of iGaming in Ontario is also expected to be a key differentiator for Amelco, with its full iGaming suite to provide games from the likes of Evolution, NetEnt, Red Tiger, Pragmatic Play and Pariplay.”

The Ontario commercial market went live last spring and is the first Canadian province to offer iGaming to its residents. Up to now, local lotteries have traditionally dominated Canada’s gambling sector.
