Live5 launches in British Colombia after license approval


Slot game developer Live5 has received approval to launch in the Canadian province of British Columbia for the first time.

Live5 was certified by the British Colombia Gaming Enforcement and Policy Branch (GEPB).

The supplier already holds a license in Quebec, through Loto Quebec.

The company will go on to integrate its titles – through Scientific Games – with the British Colombia Lottery Corporation and the PlayNow online betting service.

Players in British Colombia will then be able to access Live5’s titles, which include Sheba, Orb of Osiris and Win In Rome.

“We are thrilled to have received the necessary approvals to launch our popular online slot content with the British Colombia Lottery Corporation and to players on its PlayNow site,” said Lloyd Butler, CEO at Live5.

“Our games have been designed to deliver high levels of player engagement and entertainment via thrilling bonus features that offer plenty of big win potential. It has proved to be recipe for success in countless markets and we believe PlayNow players will enjoy the fun experience our content offers.”

Live5 also holds licenses throughout Europe, including in Spain, Sweden and Italy.

“We believe the Canadian market has significant untapped potential and by applying for and receiving certifications such as this with the GEPB we are positioning Live5 for a long and successful future in the market with our operator partners,” added Butler.

In August, Canada introduced single-event sports betting in the country after its senate passed bill C-218 by a vote of 57-20.
