Ontario Sports Betting Launch Preview
Ontario Sports Betting Launch Preview
Canadian sports bettors are celebrating the approach of the Ontario sports betting market launch on April 4th. Ontario sports bettors will have access to a long list of sports betting operators. Let's take a look at the latest news and what to expect from the launch of Ontario sports betting.
Ontario Sports Betting Basics
Online sports betting officially goes live on April 4th 2022, meaning Ontario sports bettors can bet on, and win big on their favorite teams - all from the comfort of their own homes.
Some of the biggest sportsbooks and online Casinos in the iGaming industy will be joining the Ontario sports betting market such as powerhouses operators: DraftKings, MGM, FanDuel and Caesars. Although the Ontario sports betting market launches on April 4th, we'd expect a slower roll-out of operators as US sportsbooks sort out the litigation, and regulations of the Canadian iGaming market.
Toronto based theScore however has committed to an April 4th launch, and are currently taking pre-registrations to users in Ontario. Residents of the Ontario sports betting market can download theScore bet app and get instant access to a range of sports betting markets as soon as Ontario sports betting goes live.
As well as getting first access to Ontario sports betting, users that pre-register for theScore Bet app will get a free Barstool Sports 'Spittin' Chiclets' T-shirt exclusively for theScore early registration customers.
The Ontario sports betting scene will be highlighted by industry powerhouses including the likes of Caesars, MGM, FanDuel and DraftKings. The only components of Ontario sports betting yet to be decided are the subtle details of taxation, regulations and fees for licensing. However, the general expectation is that the regulations and rules will be the same as those of the United States markets.
The Ontario Sports Betting Market
The Ontario sports betting market is expected to be a hugely successful addition to the iGaming market. As well as the 70 in-person casinos, users will have access to a huge number of online sportsbooks from the comfort of their own homes. The ease of accessibility of Ontario sports betting is good news, and we'd expect a huge number of users to sign up on day one.
The Ontario Sports Betting Market Options
The Ontario sports betting market will give users access to a wide variety of betting markets, and provide users with the most options to win big on their favorite teams.
Although single game betting was previously legal in Casinos in Ontario, the addition of DraftKings and FanDuel will see a sharp increase in parlay, and SGP betting, as users tally together bets with the hopes of winning big. If the Ontario sports betting launch goes smoothly, Ontario sports gamblers will be able to make single game and parlay bets online and in-person at casinos from April 4th.
The list of providers set to go live in the Ontario sports betting market will immediately make the Ontario sports betting space competitive, forcing operators to offers bigger and better deals to entice customers to their platform. This is great news for Ontario bettors, and we'd expect to see some huge welcome bonuses roll out in the next couple of weeks.
