NetEnt disrupts the online gambling landscape in Canada


NetEnt signed an agreement with the International Game Technology (IGT) organization in London at the start of 2019, to provide online games to the BCLC (British Columbia Lottery Corporation). The technical procedures have been fulfilled and players in Canada can access a wide range of NetEnt casino games. Bringing NetEnt games to Canada was only possible through the IGT Connect integration layer with the lottery. Today, Canadian players can see for themselves why NetEnt casino games are so famous.

About NetEnt’s Entry into Canada

NetEnt, one of the leading online casino games developers from Sweden, has entered the regulated Canadian market. It’s an award-winning developer specializing in offering exiting, safe and reliable gaming software to the top online casinos worldwide. The opportunity to enter Canada was made possible through a deal signed between IGT and BCLC, which is the regulatory authority in Canada. The deal is like an agreement thanks to which NetEnt supplies casino games for Norsk Tipping, a state-owned lottery in Norway.

After a complicated implementation process to guarantee technical compliance and integration with Canadian online slotsregulations, NetEnt successfully entered the Canadian market. Although not all NetEnt games are available to Canadian gamblers, the catalogue currently includes some of the most popular games. However, all games are provided through the IGT platform to the BCLC network of online casinos. That’s how the deal was structured.

Entering the Canadian Market is a Milestone

The recently appointed CEO of NetEnt, Therese Hollman, shows that the launch in Western Canada is a significant step for NetEnt. The online gaming software provider is also targeting the North America region. It’s part of NetEnt’s expansion strategy. What’s more the CEO shows confidence in the high performance and success of NetEnt’s games in the Canadian market. It’s an extensive market, which has the right prerequisites for a new wave of gaming software. The move comes after studying the success of other gaming developers over the last years. But expansion doesn’t stop with Canada.

NetEnt’s launch in Canada came 48 hours after it closed a deal to offer online casino games to gamblers in Lithuania through an affiliation with Top Sport, a Lithuanian iGaming operator. So, NetEnt is undergoing a global multilateral expansion strategy.
