Both companies said they are eager to expand within the Canadian market.

Design Works Gaming (DWG) has gained an iGaming license in the Canadian province of Ontario. The company described the approval as a significant company milestone.

With access to the Ontario market, DWG can bring its LuckyTap slot titles to players throughout the province.

Company Founder and CEO Troy Zurawski took a moment to express his excitement by saying, "Securing the iGaming license in Ontario is a momentous milestone for our company. We have been working tirelessly to take the next step in our global expansion and Canada has been in our sights for a long time.

“Entering this new market opens a significant opportunity to introduce new players to our fresh, exciting approach to casino play.”

Ontario has also welcomed Booming Games to the province. The company received a B2B license from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), which gives Booming Games the green light to enter the commercial market and distribute its content to operations throughout the province.

Booming Games said that it “remains committed to upholding the highest standards of regulatory compliance and responsible gaming practices.”

With the approval, Booming Games is among the initial group of iGaming providers to receive an Ontario license.

Booming Games CCO Frederik Niehusen celebrated the company’s achievement and said that the group is eager to expand within Ontario’s growing market. He said, “We are thrilled to have obtained a full Ontario B2B gaming license, allowing us to expand in the fast-growing Canadian market.

“Ontario is the next milestone of our strategy to expand in regulated markets after successfully entering Spain, Colombia, The Netherlands and Denmark in 2023.”
