Going Under The Hood Of Ontario’s Registrar’s Standards For Online Casinos And Poker

The big gaming news out of Canada has been that sports betting could launch within two weeks. This was the news delivered by Justice Minister and Attorney General David Lametti on Thursday, Aug 12, 2021, at the Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls.

This Canadian sports betting news was welcomed after weeks of silence following the last-minute passage of Bill C-218

There is also news on the online casino and poker front, however. On July 14, 2021, Ontario’s Alcohol and Gaming Commission released the Registrar’s Standards for Internet Gaming.

The standards reinforce the long-standing view that privatized online gambling in Ontario is expected to launch in late 2021. This will likely coincide with the Ontario’s rollout of sports betting. That’s assuming that the province goes the route of a commercial market for that vertical as well, rather than a provincial monopoly.
