Bet99 Close to iGaming License in Ontario

bet99 Review

Bet99 is set to be one of the newest additions to the Ontario sports betting landscape. The chief executive officer of the company recently stated that they are getting close to securing the necessary approvals to provide legal sports betting in Ontario (check the list of best legal betting sites in Ontario). The brand will also likely offer a selection of online casino gaming alongside its sports betting platform. There is no definite time frame which has been announced for the company for the introduction.

The CEO of the company also said that he is optimistic about a successful debut of the platform in Ontario despite its late launch into the market. He went on to say he was confident that the brand has already made its mark in the region and will continue to thrive in the regulated market. The company will transition from Bet99.com to Bet99.ca in the province according to recent suggestions.

Bet99 in Ontario Right Now

Bet99 launched in 2020 and has seen major growth in the past couple of years. The online sportsbook and casino have now taken more than $1.2 billion in bets. At the current time, Bet99’s online sportsbook and casino are licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission.

Bet99 has already built its name from the ground up as one of the top online sportsbooks in the region. This can be attributed to its eye-catching partnerships with former UFC champion Georges St-Pierre and NHL All-Star Auston Matthews. The brand is known for bringing in the big names to champion its marketing efforts.

Ontario has only just opened up its competitive market for iGaming in early April of 2022. The province now houses more than 20 online sportsbooks and casinos where residents can legally gamble. Top operators that Bet99 will be competing against include Unibet, DraftKings, FanDuel, theScore and 888sport.


Bet99 will likely be available as a regulated sportsbook in Ontario in the third or fourth quarter of 2022. The brand should be very competitive considering its success in the region and partnerships with endorsements from popular celebrities and teams. We expect the platform to host both a sportsbook and online casino if they can get their hands on an igaming license from the ALGC.

All in all, Bet99 is definitely a sportsbook and casino platform to watch out for in the coming months. Be sure to check back for updates.
