FanDuel to enter Ontario iGaming market, unveils partners and Canadian office opening

FanDuel Group announced Thursday it is expanding its gaming offering to Canada, as it will be launching in Ontario’s iGaming market, subject to successful Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) registration and execution of an operating agreement with iGaming Ontario. 

FanDuel’s Canadian expansion comes after the AGCO announced it will launch its regulated market for single-game sports betting, allowing authorized sportsbook operators to begin taking bets on Monday, April 4. The company’s expansion of mobile and online gaming to Ontario was announced to take place this month. 

FanDuel’s Sportsbook with embedded casino and standalone Casino app will provide the province with a suite of real-time, real-money gaming experiences, all using one seamless account and wallet. Powered by IGT’s PlaySports platform, it offers betting features including Same Game Parlay bets, Odds Boosts, Data Visuals, and Streaming options to augment Canadians’ engagement with sports. 

FanDuel’s Player Account Management System and Casino are powered by GAN, a North American B2B technology provider of real money internet solutions. The FanDuel Casino will launch with over 250 titles in live dealer, random number generation, and slot games. 

Payment processing partner, Nuvei, will provide players 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.

In an official press release, FanDuel Group CEO Amy Howe commented on this new market expansion and said: “We’re so thrilled to open our Canadian office and bring FanDuel’s world-class Sportsbook and Casino to Canada’s passionate sports fans. This is a huge moment for the industry and we look forward to providing Canadians with entertaining and responsible sports experiences.”
