PointsBet Celebrates Two Years in Ontario iGaming Market

Believe it or not, it has been two years since the Ontario iGaming market – featuring sportsbooks as well as online casino play – came to be. Though online casino games continue to be the driver of revenue, sports betting has made a major mark. PointsBet, in particular, has been at the forefront of that impactful movement.

Speaking on the matter, Scott Vanderwel of PointsBet took the time to reflect on the past two years of iGaming in Ontario.

A Statement from Scott Vanderwel

Vanderwel, the current CEO of PointsBet, spoke on the two-year anniversary of Ontario’s iGaming launch:

β€œToday marks a significant milestone for sports enthusiasts across Ontario as we celebrate the two-year anniversary of the official launch of the province’s sports wagering market. On this occasion, I am immensely proud to extend my gratitude on behalf of the entire PointsBet team.

β€œTwo years ago, we witness history unfold as PointsBet emerged as one of the pioneering private sportsbooks to accept legal wagers in Ontario, ushering in a new era of sports betting in the province. From that moment onward, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to delivering an unparalleled betting experience to our customers, anchored in innovation, integrity, and a profound dedication to responsible gambling best practices that educate, protect, and support players.

β€œLooking ahead, PointsBet remains dedicated to pushing the boundaries of innovation, enhancing the customer experience, and contributing to the continued growth and success of iGaming in Ontario, underscored by our dedication to responsible gambling to promote a healthy and unsustainable ecosystem.”

β€œHere’s to two incredible years, and many more to come. Thank you, Ontario!”
