Casino Time, a full-service online casino for Ontario residents and affiliated with 10 charitable gaming entertainment venues is now live.

The new site features real-money casino games, such as bingo, slots, and live dealer from providers like Evolution, Pragmatic Play, IGT, Blueprint, and Light & Wonder. Players can now access such popular games as Lightning Roulette, Gonzo’s Quest, and Cleopatra.

Pragmatic Play is quarterbacking Casino Time’s bingo offering, which the company said in a statement was handpicked for its “best-in-class user experience, comprehensive promotional suite, live chat functionality, and exclusive play-on-demand feature.”

Casino Time is also the first Canadian igaming operator to offer regulated access to Bingo Blast.

“In our physical locations, our gambling product is second to none, but the special sauce is the social experience, which we’re replicating with the igaming platform,” said George Prue, General Manager of Jackpot Time Sarnia.

“We know our customers personally and we love being part of their recreation and banter. Plus, proceeds get invested straight back into the community. That’s a gambling model we can proudly stand behind.”

Casino Time operates within the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association, which advocates for charity and non-profit fundraising via gaming, providing funding to support community services throughout the province.

“We’ve been leading the revival of community gaming in Ontario for 20 years with cutting-edge gambling entertainment at the local level. Now, through an exclusive partnership with iGO (an operating agreement with iGaming Ontario), we’re bringing our offerings online across Ontario, providing more access to the social gaming revolution that has won us a legion of fans,” says D’Arcy Stuart, CEO of Casino Time.

The 10 land-based charitable gaming entertainment venues in Ontario are: Power Play Gaming Center (Tecumseh), Community Spirit Gaming Centre (Kingston), Play! Gaming & Entertainment (Kingston), Breakaway Gaming Center (Windsor), Paradise Gaming Center (Windsor), Jackpot Time Gaming Entertainment (Timmins), Jackpot Time Gaming Entertainment (St. Thomas), Bingo Country Gaming Entertainment (London), Jackpot Time Gaming Entertainment (Sarnia), and All Star Gaming Center (Windsor).

The company also intends to launch a sportsbook later this year.

According to iGaming Ontario, there are 47 licensed operators with 77 gaming websites in the province.
