Canadian Gaming Commission grants license to Booming Games

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission (AGCO) of Ontario, Canada, granted iGaming slot provider, Booming Games, a complete B2B gaming license on Monday, paving the way for the company’s entry into North American markets.

In a press release, Booming Games said the license authorized the company to distribute its content to licensed gambling operators in Ontario. 

The firm said this opens the doors for Canadian players to enjoy popular games such as TNT Bonanza, Cash Pig, Buffalo Hold and Win, and The Wild Wings of Phoenix.

Frederik Niehusen, Chief Commercial Officer at Booming Games, said the company’s swift market action has granted it a competitive advantage, making it among the first iGaming providers to secure a license in the country.

“We are thrilled to have obtained a full Ontario B2B gaming license, allowing us to expand in the fast-growing Canadian market,” Niehusen said in a statement.

“Ontario is the next milestone of our strategy to expand in regulated markets after successfully entering Spain, Colombia, The Netherlands, and Denmark in 2023,” Niehusen added.
