Since its creation in 1996, NetEnt has been a pioneer in driving the market with games powered by a cutting-edge platform.

The strategy that the firm has been pursuing to expand its network has been confirmed once again with its involvement in the online gambling industry in British Columbia. NetEnt has been approved by the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch as supplier to the British Columbia Lottery Corporation.

The British Columbia Lottery Corporation is a Crown corporation, owned by the provincial government. Revenues from BCLC supports communities, education, and health care.

The BCLC provides government authorized lottery games in the province since 1985 and has arrangements with more than 20 service providers at over 40 locations in the western province.

CEO  and NetEnt President, Per Eriksson, said recently, “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.” NetEnt recently launched a marketing campaign designed to “help cement” its reputation as a “leader and innovator in the tech sector” while positioning it as a “first choice for top talent in a highly competitive field.”
