Monday's launch means Ontarians can now wager on casino games, sporting events and other gaming activities,
It's official, Ontario's online sports betting went live on April 4 and bets are already rolling in. On Monday, 16 gambling operators were operational in the province, while others have registered with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, but have yet to secure an agreement with iGaming Ontario. Online sportsbook PointsBet saw its first big wager just 50 seconds into the launch and with a population of approximately 15 million, Ontario is expected to generate about $800 million in gross revenue this year.

ORYX will also offer games developed by its internal studios as well as exclusive games content from partner studios.
The new partnership represents Bragg's third agreement to provide its PAM platform to an iGaming operator for the Dutch market and its fifth agreement to provide online gaming content to this market.
