FansUnite Entertainment Inc. has submitted an application to the AGCO to become a registered Gaming Related Supplier - Manufacturer it has recently been announced.
The Canadian-based company would be able to provide the full services of its gambling platform Chameleon - which includes sports, esports and casino - to other operators also licensed by the AGCO should they be approved.
The decision lies with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), and if they approve the application then top Ontario online casinos would be able to avail of their services as they await licensing of their own to operate in the area later this year.
In August, the Canadian government approved the bill for provincial and territorial government to manage single-event sports betting and licensing in their jurisdictions, with Ontario the first to move forward in this regard.
CEO of FansUnite Scott Burton commented: "As a Canadian grown company, we've been looking forward to the day where we can operate in our home country.
"Ontario's success will set the framework and serve as the blueprint for how the rest of the provinces could approach regulated gaming. That said, we are eager to be a part of that success."
CEO and President of the Canadian Gaming Association Paul Burns recently lauded the moves made in Ontario to regulate online gambling operators with "a lot of excitement" in the industry as new regulations approach that will allow online casinos in Ontario to open.
He said: "It is a big change. As many people know Canada has had a significant grey market in the online space forever. There had been attempts to shame companies out of the market and suggestions of IP blocking in some jurisdictions.
"There really is only one solution and it's what Ontario is doing, creating a regulated marketplace. It's what we have wanted to see."
