NetEnt gains license as supplier in the Canadian province of British Columbia

NetEnt has announced that it can now operate as a provider in one of the most highly regulated markets in North America: the Canadian province of British Columbia. And in practice it will be the province’s only licensed gaming and lottery operator: the British Columbia Corporation (BCLC).

The Canadian regulated market, in spite of its peculiarities, mainly due to the the fact that each province has its own legislation and with public and private operators depending on the specific jurisdiction, has become one of the most attractive for first level suppliers like NetEnt .

Thus, the news that the subsidiary NetEnt Americas LLC – owned by the parent company NetEnt AB (publ) – will be responsible for the offer of online games, being the only operator of  the third largest province of Canada (“British Columbia“, which by population has approximately 4.6 million inhabitants; Vancouver however is the province’s largest city), invites optimism regarding the expansion policy of the Swedish company that also has offices in Malta, Gibraltar, Kiev and Krakow among other locations.

In the own words of NetEnt President and CEO, Per Eriksson: “I am very pleased that we have reached yet another important milestone in our expansion on regulated markets. We are the online casino supplier with the largest presence on regulated markets in terms of number of licenses and certifications that we hold, and entering the province of British Columbia in Canada is another important step for us, step that confirm that our expansion in the different regulated markets of America and Europe is an increasingly evident reality.”

It’s been a busy year for the online gambling software developer. Recently,  NetEnt AB has launched The Challenge, a unique web marketing campaign that has been designed to engage its staff while demonstrating its “successful challenger culture”, but previously, it was also launched Gonzo´s Quest (as first real-money VR slot), and Hansel and Gretel (the second title from Fairytale Legends trilogy) just to list some of the most highlights.

You can always check in its website the bunch of new games they provide, or have a peek at our NetEnt game section to find out more about these mentioned and many other wicked games of this provider,(such as Dracula, Crystals of Power, Guns N’ Roses Slot…).
