GiG expands Ontario igaming presence via digital deal with Casino Time
Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has today finalized a deal with Casino Time to power its platform, sportsbook and omni-channel solution in Ontario.
The two parties first announced a Head of Terms agreement last November but progress has now been made to officially close the deal ahead of the brand’s expected launch date in H2.
The GiG platform now counts five operators under its tutelage in Ontario, having been authorized in the Canadian province since securing a supplier license from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) back in July.
“A growing presence in Ontario continues to reflect well on the strength of our products and technology in the region,” explained Marcel Elfersy, COO of GiG.
“Combined with our commitment to expansion in complex regulated markets globally, we’re demonstrating that we are well positioned to power the needs and aspirations of land-based operators looking to enter the online space.”
Canadian-owned and operated Casino Time – a joint venture amongst leading retail operators in Ontario’s Charitable Gaming sector – is extending its joint fundraising model into the igaming space for the first time.
The partnership with GiG will allow Casino Time to utilise its technology in several key areas such as player account management, trading and risk management, and automated marketing, as the operator seeks to develop and grow its brand in the digital space.
“We are proud to extend our partnership with Ontario’s charities in igaming,” added D’Arcy Stuart, Founder and CEO of Casino Time.
“Casino Time will deliver the personalized service and community experience that our retail customers in Ontario have come to expect, while expanding the product offering into exciting new territory, including Bingo, Slots, Sportsbook and Live Dealer Casino Games.”
