Prominent iGaming innovator Evolution Gaming Group AB has announced that online casino players in the eastern Canadian province of Ontario can now enjoy a selection of its live-dealer games via the domain at OLG.com.
The Swedish firm used an official Wednesday press release to detail that the launch encompassing real-time baccarat, blackjack and roulette titles in addition a range of random number generator games comes courtesy of a refreshed alliance with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) Corporation. The company explained that the premiere means its live-dealer online casino innovations are now available to enjoy in four Canadian provinces following earlier analogous agreements with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation, Loto-Quebec and Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis.
Evolution Gaming Group AB inked a deal earlier this month that saw it enter the newly-regulated iGaming market of the Netherlands via the domain at FairPlayCasino.nl. The developer divulged that all of the real-time titles it makes available to players in Canada are produced from a bespoke studio in the western city of Vancouver with OLG.com having now added the entertainment to its already-offered range of lottery, video slot and electronic scratchcard advances.
Jeff Millar serves as the North America Commercial Director for Evolution Ganing Group AB and he declared that the arrangement with OLG.com has ‘further strengthened’ his firm’s position in Canada by allowing punters from across the nation’s most populous province to ‘interact directly with real casino dealers via an Internet video feed.’
