Business Updates

Integration Pipeline

Our integration pipeline is progressing well, with significant developments in recent months:

  • Completed Integrations: We successfully completed 8 integrations with new customers, and final production testing is currently underway. We expect these accounts to be online within the current quarter.
  • In-Progress Integrations: There are 10 integrations currently in progress, with these customers anticipated to be online by Q3 this year.
  • Pending Integrations: We have 15 pending integrations that will commence once resources become available from the current work-in-progress projects.

In total, Playgon has 33 integrations on our roadmap. This robust pipeline underscores the strong market demand for our product and our potential to significantly expand our market presence and drive future growth.


Playgon is in its final stages for the launch of our VegasLounge in Ontario, and reiterates its expectaton for multiple customer launches going live in the current quarter. We faced delays due to regulatory and integration complexities, but these issues have been resolved, allowing us to move forward confidently. We have secured commitments from several Tier 1 brands to license our product, and these partnerships will be announced once our tables are live on the customers' sites. Ontario has quickly established itself as a top regulated market in North America in just 2 years.


We have finalized heads of terms with an Italian focused content aggregator and upon completing the final stages of integrating and testing, we anticipate our first customer launches through this partnership in Q3 this year, at which time the Company will provide a further update into this lucrative Italian gaming market. The Company considers this a strategic alliance for this market as this aggregator accounts for 85% market share supplying third party content to operators in the Italian market. Italy is the second biggest regulated online gaming market in Europe.

Darcy Krogh CEO of Playgon Games, states "Our business is still young and when one of our top licensees ceases their operations, it can have an adverse affect on our revenue and KPI's. We have a healthy and growing pipeline of new customers in both existing and new markets for which management is confident in the future success of its product in the live gaming market."
