iGaming-specific steps and eligibility

Types of registrations

To supply your products or services to igaming operators in Ontario, you need to be registered with the AGCO. 

There are two types of gaming-related supplier registrations that apply to igaming (for fee purposes):  

  • Manufacturers
    These suppliers make, supply, install, test, maintain or fix gaming equipment to play a lottery or operate a gaming site. They may also offer consulting services for playing lotteries or operating a gaming site.  
  • Other
    These suppliers install, test, maintain or fix equipment. They may also offer consulting services to operators across the gaming industry.  

Examples of providers that need to register include:

  • platform providers
  • suppliers that manufacture, develop, provide or run games and game systems
  • customer electronic wallet providers  
  • odds makers
  • sports integrity monitoring organizations
  • independent test labs

There is a category for non-gaming-related suppliers in the lottery and gaming sector. This category doesn’t apply to igaming.  

iGaming-specific steps and eligibility

Before applying

Before submitting your application to the AGCO, you need to:

  1. Review the Registrar’s standards for internet gaming to see if your products comply, or if they need updates before being tested.
  2. Get a registered independent testing lab to certify the product you’ll be supplying. Testing needs to cover all games. It also needs to cover random number generators and pieces of igaming systems that accept, process, determine the outcome of, display and log details about player bets.
  3. Review the internet gaming go-live compliance guide to understand what you need to do to go live.
