February 10, 2022 by

Being the most populous province in Canada, Ontario happens to be the first to benefit from some of the innovations introduced in the country. The field of sports betting and gaming, we learned that the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario has just made a decision to provide first online betting and gaming licenses. As a result, TheScore and PointsBet have been granted licenses.

TheScore, which was taken over by Penn National Gaming, was approved by the AGCO not too long ago. It has now been announced that the company has become a legally licensed online gaming operator. TheScore will be able to operate from the beginning of April when online gaming will be available in the province of Ontario. This seems to give great satisfaction to those who manage this gaming site, especially since they are the first in the country. With the launch of the site scheduled for April, TheScore is wasting no time putting the finishing touches on the platform, which it has already begun to develop, according to Penn National Gaming.

TheScore is not the only one with an online gaming license in Ontario. In fact, PointsBet has also been granted a license for its online gaming site, which will also begin operating online in early April 2022. PointsBet Canada insists that its business is uniquely Canadian, focusing on the Canadian market and plans to hire Canadian employees. This company is characterized by its dynamism and ability to offer guaranteed entertainment in various types of sports and create a pleasant atmosphere created by sports betting.

It should be noted that since marketing partnerships go hand in hand with online gambling sites, there will, of course, be some sports organizations involved as partners of these gambling sites. We can mention as examples: the NHL Alumni Association, Alpine Canada and also Curling Canada.

However, it should be noted that this type of marketing is not done randomly but is expected to comply with certain standards. Thus, the respect of certain rules such as the obligation for the operators to adhere to the IBIA as a system of control of the integrity knowing the restrictions not to be crossed in all that in connection with the sites of online games.
