AGCO opens application system to igaming operators and suppliers
September 17, 2021
The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has opened the registration application system to igaming operators and suppliers that are interested in participating in Ontario’s regulated igaming market when it launches as they will first need to be registered under the Gaming Control Act.
Applicants are encouraged to provide as complete an application as possible to ensure timely processing. It is the completeness of the information provided in the application and not the date on which an application is first submitted that will determine how quickly the AGCO will be able to process it. On August 18, the AGCO published its igaming operator application guide and on September 2, its igaming supplier application guide. These guides have been provided as helpful resources to assist prospective applicants. They include a detailed list of the information and supporting documentation applicants must submit for the AGCO to process their applications. Furthermore, operators will also be required to enter into a commercial contract with iGaming Ontario, which anticipates providing the final commercial contract to interested operators upon signing a non-disclosure agreement in the very near future.
All applications for registration must be made through the iAGCO web-based portal. Prospective operators and gaming-related suppliers are now able to create their iAGCO account and start preparing their applications for registration.
