Two Game Developers Enter Ontario: Booming Games & Design Works Granted Licenses
February 19, 2024

The Ontario online gambling market has been booming, with iGaming Ontario reporting $17.2 billion in handle in just the last quarter of 2023 across the three online gambling verticals in the province.

With dozens of operators competing for their slice of the Ontario market, the need for new content is constant, and two new game developers have used that opportunity to offer their game portfolios in 2024.

According to Focus Gaming News, both Booming Games and Design Works Gaming (DWG) have been granted B2B licenses by Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), allowing them to distribute their games across the licensed casino operators in the province.

With both studios offering extensive portfolios of unique casino games, Ontario casino players will soon be seeing plenty of exciting novel titles in their favorite casino lobbies.

A Booming Casino Portfolio

According to the gaming license acquired by Booming Games, the developer will now have a chance to offer its games to all licensed operators in Ontario, which includes dozens of popular casino sites like BetMGM Casino, Party Casino, and DraftKings Casino.

The studio currently offers a portfolio of 70 unique games, including titles like Cash Pig, TNT Bonanza, Buffalo Hold and Win, and Burning Classics.

In addition to these current titles, which have proven to be extremely popular in other international gaming markets, Booming Games will also offer a number of branded games they created in partnership with Ronaldinho Gaucho, one of the best soccer players of his generation.

All of these titles will start appearing in Ontario online casino lobbies in the coming months, as Booming Games completes its first deals with operators and starts integrating its portfolio with the existing casino platforms.

As one of the fastest-growing game developers in the industry, Booming Games is also expected to continue increasing its portfolio with new games, adding even more variety in gameplay themes and features with each new title.

Design Works Gaming Enters Ontario

Design Works Gaming (DWG) is another game developer that’s recently been granted a B2B license by AGCO, which means they too will be able to distribute their games to the licensed operators in the province.

The company also boasts an extensive portfolio of games, with titles like Panda Queen, Piggy Payouts Bank Buster, 10x Fortune, and Golden Grand only a few of its most popular titles.

The company’s Luckytap gameplay feature, which is available in select games, sets DWG games apart from others on the market, and will make it a valuable contributor to the current Ontario igaming scene.

You can expect to see DWG titles in the online casino lobbies across Ontario in the coming months as well, allowing Canadian players to legally play Luckytap slots for the first time ever.

As new slot developers and casino operators continue to enter the Ontario online gambling market, expect even more exciting opportunities and plenty of outstanding new games to become available with each passing month of 2024, a year that’s expected to be even more successful for the growing market.
