The license grants both German brand edict egaming GmbHand Edict Malta Ltd. the right to provide titles in Ontario. It also marks the first instance of edict’s parent company Merkur Group launching slots in one of the largest North American markets.

edict egaming is a subsidiary of the Merker Group and acts as the distributor for Merkur online slots.

“We are delighted to have received AGCO approval for our Merkur games in Ontario,” said Dominic-Daniel Liénard, CEO of edict egaming GmbH. “This is definitely a big step for edict and we are very excited to showcase ourselves to new audiences on the global stage in this dynamic market.”

Established in Hamburg in 1998, edict egaming GmbH was acquired in 2008 by the Gauselmann Group, now Merkur Group, before launching its game solution in 2014 and undergoing a mobile-first approach the following year.

The company launched its aggregator solution in 2021 and back in Apil, it secured an aggregation agreement with the slots supplier Apparat Gaming. The following month, it collaborated with Atomo Gaming to bring Merker Group games to South America.
