The Ontario sports betting industry increased its revenue in the third quarter. iGaming Ontario reported the province’s gaming revenue was more than $658 million during the quarter, an increase of 22 percent over the second quarter.

According to a sportsbook pay per head provider, the report only covers the period from October 1, 2023, to December 31, 2023. It does not cover every operator with a gaming website that carried out trade activities during that time.

The survey also noted 72 gambling websites and 49 operators across the province throughout the third quarter. In the second quarter, those numbers were 71 and 47, respectively; thus, there was a slight increase.
