Wazdan is now officially operating in Ontario, Canada. The approval was granted by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) in early May 2022. Now, Wazdan can supply regulated operators with licensed online casino games.
This big news marks the 20th regulated market for Wazdan. The iGaming content developer can now partner with all fully approved operators in the jurisdiction. The iGaming market in Ontario, Canada, officially opened its doors on April 4, 2022, and now boasts a slew of operators. The licensing and regulation process began in April 2019 and concluded three years later.
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation held a virtual monopoly over all iGaming services until recently. Under the new rules, private operators can showcase their wares to players at regulated casinos in the province. For Wazdan, this is a big step forward. It follows hot on the heels of licensing and regulation in several US states, notably West Virginia, Michigan, and New Jersey.
Wazdan's products will be featured at the SBC Summit North America in July in the state of New Jersey. In addition, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Wazdan – Michal Imiolek, expressed his excitement about the latest regulatory approval in Ontario.
'We're hugely excited to be a part of this newly regulated iGaming market. Ontario promises to be one of the biggest markets in North America and this move adds massively to our growing foothold in the region. We're sure that operators throughout the province will benefit enormously from all we have to offer.'
Wazdan was established in 2010 with server-based solutions. It received its MGA licensing the same year and became known as Wazdan LTD in 2015. After launching HTML 5 in 2015, the company received its UKGC license in 2017. It continued expansions into new markets with new licensees around the world. In 2020, Wazdan was granted its ISO certificate.
The company boasts an impressive portfolio of online casino games, including classics and innovative new types of games. All of the games feature high-quality audio-visual elements and entertaining features. All of the games play on the no-download casino software. Players can enjoy casino games, slots, video poker, and speciality games.
To date, Wazdan's impressive portfolio spans 140+ titles across the board. Some of the most popular attractions include Sizzling 777 Deluxe, Larry the Leprechaun, Magic Eggs, 777 Crown, Hot Slot™, etc. In addition, the proprietary game technology has Volatility Levels™, Ultrafast Mode, and Ultralight Mode. More recently, Wazdan features Big Screen Mode functionality too.
