Live5 expands reach in Canada with British Columbia licence

Slot game developer Live5 has strengthened its position in the fast-growing Canadian market after securing the necessary approvals to launch its content in British Colombia for the first time.

The certification, awarded by the British Colombia Gaming Enforcement and Policy Branch (GEPB), means the developer can now integrate its titles, via Scientific Games, with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation and its PlayNow online betting brand.  This will see players given access to hugely popular titles including, Sheba, Orb of Osiris, Win In Rome & Minotaur.

This includes Canada, where it already holds a licence with Loto Quebec, as well as key jurisdictions such as UK, Spain, Sweden, Italy, Denmark and Malta jurisdictions.

Lloyd Butler, CEO at Live5, said: “We are thrilled to have received the necessary approvals to launch our popular online slot content with the British Colombia Lottery Corporation and to players on its PlayNow site.

“Our games have been designed to deliver high levels of player engagement and entertainment via thrilling bonus features that offer plenty of big win potential. It has proved to be recipe for success in countless markets and we believe PlayNow players will enjoy the fun experience our content offers.

“We believe the Canadian market has significant untapped potential and by applying for and receiving certifications such as this with the GEPB we are positioning Live5 for a long and successful future in the market with our operator partners.”
