UK-based games developer 1X2 Network has secured approval from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario for a full launch in the Canadian province.
Ontario will be the second Canadian province in which 1X2 has launched, adding to its longtime supply agreement with Loto-Québec for its full gaming suite.
Included in the Ontario launch will be 1X2’s titles such as Wolf Strike, Blazing 777s, Battle Maidens, Battle Maidens Cleopatra, Book of Ba’al and Phoenix Inferno titles, developed by the 1X2gaming and Iron Dog Studio subsidiaries.
Rory Kimber, Account Management and Marketing Director at 1X2 Network, said: “Ontario promises to be one of the largest online casino markets in North America, so it made absolute sense for 1X2 Network as a leading provider of premium slot and table game content to enter the province.”
1X2 has a longstanding agreement with Loto-Québec, having first secured the partnership with the Quebec state lottery and gaming provider in 2010. It bolstered that agreement with the firm earlier this year to offer its Branded Megaways mechanic.
The firm has further laid out plans for a future roadmap of new titles designed to “appeal to player preferences” in Canada, reports CasinoBeats.
“Having gained experience in delivering our games to players in Canada via our partnership with Loto-Québec, we know exactly what it takes to engage, entertain and excite players, and the suite of content that we will launch in Ontario has been designed to do just that,” Kimber continued. “It is great to see that some of the biggest brands in the market are planning to integrate our content into their game lobbies, and we look forward to seeing players in Ontario enjoy the thrilling experience that each title has to offer.”
Meanwhile, 1X2 Network has also expanded its game portfolio with the launch of a new series of Arcade Games via its 1X2gaming subsidiary. The new suite of Arcade Games includes both Instant Win and Mine Games, which provide a unique spin on the classic feel of 80s mine-sweeper games, as well as titles such as Pop ‘Til You Drop, Megablox 777, Coin Field and Coin Vault.
