After a long time waiting, NetEnt Casino games can now be found online through a new agreement with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC). This is a landmark moment for the company, as this is the first time they have had games on the regulated Canadian market. Previously having struck a deal with IGT to provide their games to the BCLC, this integration now means that various top NetEnt games are available online.
This is available through the IGT Connect™ system provided to the lottery. This is going to make it easier for these top NetEnt games to get access to the Canadian market, and give Canadians access to some of the most popular games on the circuit.
Speaking about the move was Therese Hillman, the Group CEO of NetEnt, who said: “Launching our games to players in British Columbia is an important milestone for us in our expansion in North America. Entering regulated markets is a vital part of our strategy going forward, especially within the WLA segment. I am sure that our exciting games will be much appreciated by BCLC’s players.”
This is an interesting move forward for the industry and is sure to have some positive effects for Canadian gamers. As one of the most recognized names in the industry, NetEnt have a strong reputation for creating graphically stylish games with impressive, detailed slot opportunities. As access changes in the Canadian market, their introduction can only mean positive things.
