PokerStars launches in Ontario

June 28, 2022

PokerStars has been granted a full registration to online operate poker, online casino and online sports betting in the Canadian province of Ontario by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). Players can now access PokerStars games online or via the app.

“In many respects Ontario is our home market, given the first ever hand of PokerStars was played here over 20 years ago, so we are thrilled about the new regulated environment within which our players can play”, said Tom Warren, MD - Marketing. “A lot has changed in that time, but our commitment to offering our players the most epic and thrilling experience in the market hasn’t – and we can’t wait to get started.”
To mark the launch of the new PokerStars CAON platform, PokerStars will be hosting a special launch series, the Ontario Platinum Series, exclusively for those in Ontario from July 10 -18, offering a $1.5 million guaranteed prize pool.

PokerStars will offer a wide range of events and experiences this summer to players who join the PokerStars family, including a new weekly flagship event, known as the New Sunday Majors, which will be a special Sunday tournament with a $100k guaranteed prize pool. PokerStars is also looking forward to working closely with its gaming partner Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment to provide players with epic rewards, opportunities, and experiences.
