Ontario’s iGaming Market: 2023-24 in Numbers

Ontario’s iGaming industry has witnessed spectacular growth since its launch in April 2022. With a regulatory framework that is lauded and well-recognized by the international gaming community, the iGaming market in Ontario is open to an unlimited number of private operators willing to compete. Here, we analyze all trading activity recorded at Ontario gambling sites for the fiscal year between April 1, 2023 and March 31, 2024.

Analytics: Total Wagers and Revenue

Ontario’s iGaming market is considered complex due to its extensive European-like approach to regulations. With a core focus on customer protection and one of the lowest annual tax rates of just 20%, the recorded numbers below place the province as one of the largest online gambling markets in the North American region.
