Thunderkick launches in Ontario with PokerStars and LeoVegas

18 June 2024
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Independent slots studio Thunderkick has gone live in Ontario for the first time with international operators PokerStars and LeoVegas.
The jurisdiction is a key focus for the provider alongside markets such as Italy, Portugal, and its homeland of Sweden.
Ontario also marks the latest step in Thunderkick’s long-term North American strategy, which will see the studio roll out game releases and commercial deals throughout the rest of 2024.
The license allows the provider to partner with a range of operators in the region, which has proven to be buoyant since it came online in 2022.
As part of the move, a number of acclaimed titles will become available to PokerStars and LeoVegas players in Ontario. These include an initial offering of 12 Bolts of Thunder, Xterminate, Midas Golden Touch 2, Beat the Beast: Dragon’s Wrath, and Midas Golden Touch Reborn, which will be accessible within a month of the launch.
Thunderkick has positioned itself for major growth following this important milestone, especially in North America, where it has recently entered the US social casino industry.
Svante Sahlström, Chief Commercial Officer at Thunderkick, said: “Ontario is one of the most significant strategic moves for us this year, and I think we’ll look back on it as an important marker in the company’s development.
“Partnering with two prominent brands in PokerStars and LeoVegas highlights our drive to deliver on our long-term strategic goals in the continent as we continue to work towards providing the ultimate player experience.”
“The market entry is the latest step in Thunderkick’s progressive worldwide expansion goals, proving that independent slots studios can operate on a global scale and develop a player base across continents by prioritizing high-quality games.”
“There is a huge amount of unlocked potential in North America, and as more Canadian provinces and US states become regulated, there is a fantastic opportunity for Thunderkick to expand further.”
