Get ready to enjoy the thrill of online gambling, made safer on some of the world’s best sites!
When Ontario launches its open and regulated internet gaming (igaming) market in the next few months, look for the iGaming Ontario logo to know you’re playing on a legal, authorized and regulated site that offers player protections and meets Ontario’s high standards for game integrity and responsible gambling.
iGaming Ontario. Play with confidence.
iGaming OntarioTM is an agency of the Government of Ontario that conducts and manages internet gaming in the province when provided through private gaming operators.
Established in July 2021 as a subsidiary of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), iGaming Ontario brings the world’s best online gambling experiences to the people of Ontario in a safer environment.
Governed by an interim Board of Directors, iGaming Ontario will enter into commercial agreements with operators who meet rigorous standards of game and operator integrity, fairness, player protections and social responsibility, allowing all players to play with confidence.
A share of revenues generated by these commercial relationships will be returned to the Government of Ontario to support provincial priorities.
iGaming Ontario supports the Government of Ontario’s competitive igaming market objectives, which include:
iGaming Ontario’s conduct and management role is independent of the AGCO’s regulatory role.
iGaming Ontario also does not conduct or manage online gambling at OLG.ca, which is offered by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG).
iGaming Ontario is working with the Government of Ontario and the AGCO to establish a safe, open and competitive online gaming market that will help protect consumers and provide more choice while ensuring a level playing field for new businesses.
Note: This timeline reflects estimated dates that are subject to change as plans for Ontario’s igaming market continue to progress.
