Amelco secures gaming related supplier license in Ontario


Gambling technology provider Amelco has secured a new gaming related supplier license in the Canadian province of Ontario.

Issued by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), the permit allows Amelco to launch its solutions in Ontario.

The license covers both sports betting and igaming activities. Amelco offers a range of sports wagering, casino, lottery and financial products to the market.

“This represents a significant milestone for us,” Amelco USA head Brandon Walker said. “We are thrilled to be finally entering Ontario.”

Amelco also holds licenses in several other major gambling markets including New Jersey in the US and the UK.

Fanatics partnership

The license comes after it was revealed earlier this year that Amelco’s source code would be used to power the launch of Fanatics’ new sports betting offering.

The partnership was confirmed in January having been mooted as far back as April 2022. At the time of the initial reports, the operator said there was no deal in place with the supplier.

Referencing the arrangement at a Massachusetts licensing meeting, Fanatics’ chief product officer Scot McClintic said Amelco’s tech would cover offerings including its player account management and sports wagering system.

Since the deal was announced, Fanatics has gone live with sports betting in Maryland, Ohio and Tennessee. Further igaming and sports betting launches are planned for later this year.
