Skill on Net has become the latest operator to be granted a license by Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) to take bets in the province. The license will be utilised to launch the Play OJO, Spin Genie and Slots Magic brands.
Up to and including the first month of betting in Ontario we reported that 13 operators and 21 brands were licensed and operational in the province, including BetMGM, Fan Duel, Leo Vegas, Bet365 and theScore Bet.
Many more are expected in 2022 including a long list of sites on the White Hat Gaming label including Hello Casino, Skoll Casino, Gate777 Casino and Dream Vegas.
The Skill on Net license is set to last for one year and will expire on 1st May 2023.
Skill on Net have been active in the iGaming industry since 2005 and are a popular white label solution for businesses seeking to create real money online casino and slots brands with an emphasis on mobile. Their platform provides access to 3,000 online slots and a cashier with all the most popular payment services on it including Paypal, Neteller, Bitcoin and Interac for Canada.
Amongst the other brands supported by the Skill on Net platform is Play OJO who have built their brand on a promise of ‘no-bullshit’ promotions. They were the first to offer free spins with winnings paid in cash rather than bonus money.
OJO’s arrival in Ontario is an exciting addition to the growing list of brands available to gamblers there. It is already be well known as the site has been active across Canada for many years prior to the launch of the new Ontario market.
ONTARIO OFF TO A SOLID START
The AGCO has yet to publish figures relating to handle and revenue in for the first months betting but reports from on the ground suggest a solid start for the fledgling market with big names entering and new partnerships announced between operators and sports franchises like Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE).
This week we reported that BetMGM and PointsBet were the first operators to be issued with fines by the AGCO for breach of advertising rules. Their fines relate to publicising incentives to bet and implying that wagering with bigger bets gives a player a greater chance of winning.
