Play’n GO joins Canadian Gaming Association after Quebec expansion

Gaming provider is operational in two provinces

Gaming supplier Play’n GO has joined the Canadian Gaming Association (CGA), a month after expanding from Ontario into Quebec.

Play’n GO was founded in 2005 and specializes in supplying entertainment to the casino industry. Its most renowned online casino games include the likes of Book of Dead, Reactoonz and Moon Princess.

The Swedish company’s portfolio comprises 350 titles which it supplies to regulated casino operators in more than 30 jurisdictions.  As well as developing games, it provides back-end services and solutions to operators.

Head of Region, North America at Play’n GO Saam Hafezi said the company, “has long advocated for a safe, regulated iGaming industry, and we’re proud to join an official body like the Canadian Gaming Association that shares those goals.”

“We look forward to collaborating with fellow stakeholders within the Association to achieve a brighter, more sustainable future for us all, and we thank the Canadian Gaming Association for accepting our membership application,” added Hafezi.

The company joins over 70 operators, suppliers, and other gaming stakeholder firms who are members of the CGA.

CGA President and CEO Paul Burns said that Play’n GO’s values, “align perfectly with our own — advancing the evolution of Canada’s gaming industry in a safe way that protects players.”

Play’n GO expands into Quebec

Play’n GO joins the CGA four weeks after it expanded its operations into Quebec via a deal with Loto-Québec.

The company operated in the Ontario regulated market for the last two years since receiving a supplier license from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) in time for the launch of Ontario’s regulated iGaming market in April 2022. It supplies games to multiple commercial operators in the province.

Now, its games are also available on Loto-Québec’s platform in La Belle Province.

Chief Commercial Officer Magnus Olsson said at that time of the company’s Ontario entry that its first foray into Canada “represents just the first stage in Play’n GO’s North American entry strategy.”

Since then, the firm has gone live in other markets such as Pennsylvania before adding Quebec to its list.

“At Play’n GO, we have always been clear in our vision to be active in every regulated market in the world, and this partnership with Loto-Québec is the next step on that journey,” said Olsson last month. “Our past success in Canada gives us confidence that players in Québec will enjoy the best Play’n GO content, and we look forward to many years of success with Loto-Québec in the province.”
