High 5 Games Expands to Ontario via DraftKings

New York-based High 5 Games continues to make its way into more regulated iGaming markets. Most recently, the company reported that last week, it has integrated some of its world-class content with DraftKings in Ontario, thus joining another regulated jurisdiction. Now, players of the leading casino platform in the province have access to a selection of the supplier’s titles.

High 5 Games was founded back in 1995 and it is a developer of leading casino products for brick-and-mortar, online, and social markets. Currently, the supplier boasts a portfolio of 500+ casino titles and integration services to its many partners. Also, the company is a leader in B2C and B2B iGaming landscape and holds licenses for numerous regulated jurisdictions around the globe.

Content Now Accessible in Ontario

After successful integration, the provider’s premium content is now online with DraftKings and accessible to Ontarians. Players can now choose from a plethora of titles, including some of the supplier’s best-performing games. This includes Triple Double Da Vinci Diamonds, Platinum Goddess, and The Green Machine Supreme. Its new Goldstruck Blasts is also up and running.

Anthony Singer, CEO of the developer, shared that the company is more than pleased to debut content in Ontario via the leading betting brand. He added that as the provider continues on its growth trajectory, the team felt privileged to offer new and exciting iGaming content to the operator while meeting their shared objective of reaching all iGaming jurisdictions on the continent.

This latest partnership between the provider and DraftKings is key for the two sides’ success, and their shared vision of expansion into new markets while also delivering first-rate products to players. The two have already set sights on West Virginia next, and have already kicked off work to open this market to players as they continue on their expansion trajectory.

Ontario’s Market

Launched on April 4, 2022, Ontario’s open iGaming market for third-party operators and developers is the first of its kind across Canada. Currently, the sector is the home to more than 70 operators and websites, which are overseen by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. It was introduced in order to eliminate the grey sector and keep millions of casino revenue within the province.

This January, AGCO’s subsidiary, iGaming Ontario, issued its Q3 report on the local online market. For the period of October 1, 2022, through December 31, 2022, the province saw a total betting handle of CA$11.53 billion, which was almost double the volume of the previous quarter. In Q3 total gambling revenue from the market reached CA$457 million.

Meanwhile, more and more operators are making their way into the market. In March, Pariplay reported that it has integrated its slot portfolio with Caesars Sportsbook & Casino, which operates in the market. Now, fan favourites such as Gods of Kemet, Spirit of Mustang and Wolf Riches are available to Ontarians.
