Bill C-218 now makes it legal for Canada’s provinces to offer single-event betting on all sports wagering exclusive of horse racing, wagering of which would continue to be under federal oversight. The enactment of Bill C-218 will have a substantial economic impact in Canada that will benefit businesses, local communities, and government.
Once the Bill C-218 receives Royal Assent, the Company anticipates many opportunities to license and or joint venture across the 10 provinces and 3 territories in Canada and also in the legalized global markets by providing legalized sportsbooks with its innovative mobile and TV platforms in regulated jurisdictions. According to the Canadian Gaming Association, over $14 billion is wagered offshore by Canadians and through illegal bookmaking operations in Canada.
“At GameOn, we power the most-watched content in the world with the most innovative predictive gaming technologies, sportsbooks being a key category,” said Bailey. “As a proud Canadian company, we look forward to providing legalized sportsbooks with our innovative mobile and TV platforms in regulated jurisdictions both locally and globally.”
