The Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch (GPEB), the gaming regulator in the Canadian province of British Columbia, has approved NetEnt Americas as supplier to the only licensed gaming and lottery operator in the province, British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC).

BCLC is a Crown corporation owned by the province of British Columbia, whose revenues go towards supporting communities, health care and education. The Canadian gaming market is regulated through separate licensing systems in each province. British Columbia is the third largest Canadian province by population with approximately 4.6 million inhabitants and Vancouver is the largest city in the province.

“I am very pleased that we have reached yet another important milestone in our expansion on regulated markets. We are the online casino supplier with the largest presence on regulated markets in terms of number of licenses and certifications that we hold, and entering the province of British Columbia in Canada is another important step for us”, says Per Eriksson, President and CEO of NetEnt.
