IGT leads Pragmatic Play as top online game supplier in Canada: Eilers-Fantini

Latest report breaks down most popular suppliers and titles

IGT and Pragmatic Play were the most popular online gaming suppliers in Canada last month.

Eilers-Fantini’s latest edition of their Canadian market analysis rated IGT as the top-performing operator in Canada with its overall GGR of 15.9% half a percentage point ahead of Pragmatic’s 15.4%. Evolution, the U.S. leader, and Light & Wonder made up the big four with 13.5% and 11.2%, respectively.

Other suppliers held a much smaller slice of the pie. No other company reached 4% of online gaming GGR in Canada as Playtech, a new supplier in the data starting from February, went straight in at fifth with 3.6%, ahead of the likes of AGS, Games Global, Greentube, and Everi, the latter of which will merge with IGT’s PlayDigital and Global Gaming divisions.

IGT also leads the slot segment in terms of GGR and is ranked second in both table games and video poker. Evolution leads all other suppliers in GGR in live casino and table games, with 67.3% and 37.7% of those verticals’ total GGR, respectively.

When it comes to the platform of use, desktop led overall performance at 54% but mobile led the way in the bingo, lottery, and video poker categories.

Canada’s favourite online games

Pragmatic Play’s Sweet Bonanza topped the overall game ranking charts across all categories tracked, ahead of the top-ranking live casino game Evolution‘s Live Dealer Roulette, Pragmatic’s Sugar Rush, and IGT’s Cash Eruption.

The live casino, table games and slot categories were all represented in the list of top 10 games.

In the slots-specific ranking, Pragmatic games occupied six of the top 10 spots. IGT’s Blackjack reigned supreme in the table games chart ahead of Evolution’s version of the game.

In terms of GGR, IGT’s Cash Eruption title was the overall leader followed by two Pragmatic Play slots in Sweet Bonanza and Sugar Rush. IGT’s Cleopatra title was the only other game to capture more than 1% of that market while last month’s highest-grossing game, Evolution‘s Live Dealer Roulette, dropped to fifth place with 0.91%. Cash Eruption was also the GGR leader in Eilers-Fantini’s U.S. report.

Fortune Factory‘s Gold Blitz Extreme was ranked as the best new game in the Canadian market.

The ever-expanding Eilers-Fantini report analyses 10 online casino sites and tracks more than 10,000 games across five provinces in Canada.

Evolution leads the way in U.S. report

Meanwhile, in the U.S., the top 10 in the gaming charts remained largely the same.

Evolution topped the supplier chart in the U.S. with 19.5% of GGR, with IGT and Light & Wonder sitting second and third ahead of Games Global.

IGT’s Blackjack continued as the top-performing game overall ahead of the company’s Cash Eruption in second. That pair were the other way around in terms of GGR share, with Cash Eruption ranking first.

In the U.S., all of the top 25 games were slot titles and 91.6% of all games tracked were slots.
