Ontario: Mohegan launches new Fallsview Casino-branded online sportsbook and gambling product
Integrated resorts developer Mohegan has announced the launch of a new online gaming platform in Ontario, Canada. The brand’s iGaming division, Mohegan Digital, will be launching the PlayFallsview mobile app, Fallsview Casino Resorts’ online sportsbook and real-money online casino.
The PlayFallsview product was developed in collaboration with “industry-leading” tech partners, including Kambi, Pala Interactive and Intelitics. Mohegan Digital describes its new platform as “a digital gaming experience” for the Fallsview Casino Resort, a major gaming property built on a cliff overlooking the Horseshoe Falls.
"We're thrilled to be launching playfallsview.com with the help of some of the most powerful technology in the industry," said Todd Stender, Director of Product for Mohegan. "Our partnerships with Pala Interactive and Kambi's powerful sports betting platform have allowed us to deliver a full suite of the best casino content.”
Stender further added that the company is excited “to be offering the top slot games our customers know and love,” in addition to live dealer games via Evolution, and expanded sports wagering content powered by Kambi.
"This is the next iteration of gaming in Ontario and we are excited to be partners with Mohegan Digital to offer PlayFallsview to our customers," said Richard Taylor, President of Niagara Casinos.
Operated by Mohegan, Fallsview Casino Resort is described as the largest gaming resort facility in Canada. PlayFallsview, the resort’s online mobile sportsbook brand, is now live at a dedicated website and at app stores.
The project was first unveiled in May, when Kambi announced it had signed a mobile sportsbook agreement with Mohegan. The deal was made public shortly after the regulated market of Ontario’s opening, which took place in early April.
“The Canadian market, and Ontario in particular, is full of potential for Kambi and our partners so I am pleased to have agreed on this partnership with Mohegan and its Fallsview online mobile brand,” said at the time Kristian Nylén, Kambi Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder.
The launch marks Mohegan’s first online mobile gaming product outside of the United States. Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, which also owns pro basketball team Connecticut Sun, already provides its customers iGaming and mobile sports betting offerings in certain jurisdictions through its digital brand.
Ontario's new iGaming market saw total wagers of CAD 4.07 billion ($3.09 billion) in the second quarter of the year, leading to a total gaming revenue of CAD 162 million ($123.9 million) for the period ending June 30. The figures cover the first full quarter of market operations since the Canadian province launched legal betting on April 4.
