It’s the largest segment by wagers of iGaming Ontario operators, at about 82% in the market’s second year. With 47 operators offering more than 5,000 certified games in the casino category, it’s a mega-competitive category in one of the largest regulated igaming markets in the world.

Licensed operators are searching for any edge they can get in terms of game offerings. As such, Caesars Digital in Ontario announced a partnership with Design Works Gaming (DWG) this week. DWG will launch its content on the operator’s Caesars Palace Online Casino and Caesars Sportsbook & Casino platforms in Ontario.

For DWG, currently executing a global growth strategy, Caesars Digital is their pilot partner in the region.

“Launching in Ontario has been a moment we’ve eagerly awaited at DWG, and we could not have asked for a better partner than Caesars Digital to make it a reality,” commented Troy Zurawski, Founder and CEO of Design Works Gaming.  “We’re honoured that they’ve entrusted us with the opportunity to build custom games with the Caesars brand and Caesars Digital shares our passion for producing the best online casino products on the market.”

Caesars and DWG already have similar partnerships in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, of which this is an extension. DWG has produced over 800 games, led by their proprietary LuckyTap titles and Vegas-inspired stepper slots.

“Partnering with DWG has brought exciting new content to our online casino players in New Jersey, Michigan, Pennsylvania and now Ontario,” said Ricardo Cornejo Rivas, Vice President of Online Gaming at Caesars Digital. “From custom Caesars-branded games to classic favorites, we’re glad to bring more content to our gaming catalogue that can provide an elevated and enjoyable experience to our players.”
