Soft2Bet, a provider of online betting and gaming solutions to regulated operators worldwide, announced that it has been granted a Certificate of Registration in Ontario, Canada’s largest province, moving it one step closer to being able to launch its iGaming brand, the company stated in a press release.

Obtaining its Certificate of Registration (Nbr: OPIG1280338) from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) will enable Soft2Bet to continue its expansion into the "world’s largest" regulated jurisdictions.  

The company stated that Ontario has been a "major success" story for regulated online sports betting and casino in North America in the past two years.

The province launched its regulations in April 2022 and latest figures for the fourth quarter of 2023 showed that operators recorded a 21% rise in wagers to CA$17.2 billion ($12.65 billion) and a 22% increase in gross gaming revenues to CA$658 million ($484 million), the highest ever revenue total in Ontario’s wagering history. Online casino was the main driver of this growth and generated CA$13.7 billion ($10 billion) of the total stakes and CA$471 million ($346.5 million) in GGR.

Elisabeth Isaksson, Head of Regulatory Compliance at Soft2Bet, commented: “Being registered with the AGCO in Ontario is testament to the work our compliance and regulatory teams are doing daily to enable our continued expansion in the world’s largest regulated markets."

"We’re immensely excited about taking our first steps in North America and look forward to licensing and launching in more jurisdictions in the region.”

Chief Business Development Officer Martin Collins added: “This Ontario certification is another significant and important step in our corporate expansion plans. It fits perfectly with our stated aim of growing our regulatory footprint and we very much look forward to continuing forward on this path.”    

Soft2Bet is also actively working to obtain a licence in New Jersey and continue its expansion in the Americas. This activity comes after the group obtained B2C licences in Italy, Greece and Romania in 2023.
