Pariplay, the leading provider of iGaming products, has announced that its premium slot games are now available in a province known as home to Ottawa, Canada’s capital, Ontario. The games have been integrated into Caesars Sportsbook & Casino, enabling bettors who have registered and can access the online gambling portal to enjoy fan favourites such as Gods of Kemet, Spirit of Mustang, and Wolf Riches. Ontario’s market is quite unique – it permits third-party operators and suppliers to obtain licenses and lawfully provide online gambling and sports betting services. Pariplay’s slot vertical has now been integrated into Caesars Sportsbook & Casino, which already operates in Canada’s most populous province. The provider’s platform boasts over 14,000 games from more than a hundred providers. Joey Hurtado, Managing Director of Wizard Games, one of the provider’s many partners, commented that becoming the first studio to integrate its online games through Pariplay with Caesars Entertainment was an honour for the company.
According to Shivan Patel, the Vice President of North America at the aggregator, their company will keep actively growing in regulated markets throughout North America. Meanwhile, Matthew Sunderland, the Senior Vice President of iGaming at Caesars Digital, expressed excitement about providing the extensive content portfolio, including Wizard Games, to the users in Ontario.
Ontario’s iGaming market offers a variety of options for players, which also means fierce competition for operators. Coolbet, which has been part of the sector since its launch, recently announced that it is going to leave the province, citing high competition and being unable to see short-term returns. So, on one side, it is a great time for Pairplay to enter Ontario. While on the other side, it still will have to develop in a new market in an intensely competitive environment. Most operators with an inked one-year agreement are ready to renew their agreements with the local regulator and continue work in the iGaming field.
