1X2Network goes live in Ontario with 888casino
Ontarians can now enjoy the 1X2 Network’s portfolio of casino games via 888casino, part of 888 Holdings plc, along with content from 1X2’s sister brand, Iron Dog Studio. This includes hit titles like Wolf Strike, Megaways Jack, Pirate Kingdom Megaways and 1 Million Megaways BC.
The news comes after the 1X2 Network received licensing approval from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario in May 2022. 888casino was one of the first operators to go live on a locally regulated basis in Ontario when the province launched its new online gaming market in April.
Ontario is the first of Canada’s 13 provinces to regulate online gaming and license international operators, with other provinces largely offering limited gaming through state-owned monopolies. Ontario is Canada’s largest province by population and promises to quickly become one of the biggest casino markets in North America, with 888casino being a dominant player.
Rory Kimber, account management and marketing director at 1X2 Network, said: “We are committed to expanding our footprint in key newly regulated markets and to working with regulators to ensure our games are compliant, while providing a best-in-class, localised gaming experience. There is so much potential in this market, and it is very exciting that our games are reaching a new audience in Ontario, thanks to our partnership with 888casino.”
Talya Benyamini, VP B2C Casino at 888casino, added: “Partnering with leading games suppliers such as 1X2 Network and Iron Dog Studio, which are creating some of the most interesting and engaging content in the casino space, is a key part of our product and content leadership strategy. This will enhance our offer allowing us to continue providing unique and exciting experiences to our players in Ontario. We look forward to working with the 1X2 Network team, and introducing its portfolio to our players, over the coming months.”
