FanDuel to launch sportsbook and casino in Ontario

31 March 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- FanDuel Group, North America's premier online gaming company, is expanding its fan-focused gaming offering to Canada, beginning with Ontario. FanDuel's launch is subject to successful AGCO registration and execution of an Operating Agreement with iGaming Ontario. The industry leader's expansion to Canada promises to deliver new, interactive, and immersive ways for fans to engage further with their favorite leagues and teams safely and responsibly. FanDuel's Canadian expansion comes after the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario announced it will launch its highly-anticipated regulated market for single-game sports betting, allowing authorized sportsbook operators to begin taking bets on 4 April.

FanDuel's Sportsbook with embedded casino and standalone Casino app will provide Ontario residents and visitors with a suite of real-time, real-money gaming experiences, all using one seamless account and wallet. The market-leading FanDuel Sportsbook, powered by IGT's PlaySports platform, offers fans elevated betting features including Same Game Parlayâ„¢ bets (SGP), Odds Boosts, Data Visuals, and Streaming options, to augment Canadians' engagement with the sports they love. FanDuel's Player Account Management System and Casino are powered by GAN, a leading North American B2B technology provider of real money internet gaming solutions. The FanDuel Casino will launch with over 250 titles in live dealer, random number generation, and slot games to enjoy. Payment processing partner Nuvei will provide fans with seamless payment options, with one single point of integration for customer payment needs and multiple payment options, including Interac, PayPal, MasterCard and Visa. FanDuel has also partnered with Napier, an intelligent AML solutions provider, utilizing their platform to ensure full financial crime compliance and safer gaming.

"We're so thrilled to open our Canadian office and bring FanDuel's world-class Sportsbook and Casino to Canada's passionate sports fans," said FanDuel Group CEO Amy Howe. "This is a huge moment for the industry and we look forward to providing Canadians with entertaining and responsible sports experiences."

In keeping with FanDuel Group's reputation in North America for responsible gaming, safer play will be at the forefront of FanDuel's entry into Canada. FanDuel will utilize their "Play Well" approach to make sure no wager placed on any platform results in hurting a loved one.
