Bally’s approved to launch BallyBet in Ontario

| By Marese O'Hagan
Bally’s has been approved for an internet gaming licence from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).

The licence was approved on 30 June and will last for two years, expiring on 29 June 2024.

It covers fourdomain names – ballybet.ca, ballycasino.ca, ballysbet.ca and ballyscasino.ca, as well as the BallyBet mobile app.

Bally’s is one of the most recent operators to receive a licence to operate in the province, joining the likes of PokerStars, SkillOnNet and BetVictor.

Ontario’s regulated igaming market launched in April three years after Ontario announced plans to end the lottery’s online gambling monopoly on the province.

Operators such as theScore, PointsBet and Bet365 were approved for licences before the market opened.
