Today, the AGCO granted the entity listed as "Apollo Entertainment Ltd" with licenses for seven online casino destinations and brands that will be eligible for use in Ontario. They are: Captain Cooks Casino, Casino Classic, Golden Tiger Casino, Grand Mondial Casino, Luxury Casino, Yukon Gold Casino and Zodiac Casino. None of these brands are known to offer a sportsbook vertical. Since they are casino-only brands, interested sports bettors will never find them on lists of the best legal Ontario betting sites. They'll be for slots and casino enthusiasts only.
All seven of these brands can be found represented in their variations on the Kahnawake Gaming Commission's permit holder page. There, these brands are registered to a company called "Fresh Horizons Ltd" - a different entity than that which is listed for the brands registered in Ontario.
Little is known about Fresh Horizons Ltd. It seemingly has no online presence, be it on Linkedin or even a website of its own. The 'certificate of good standing' as found when clicking on the Kahnawake Gaming Commission logo at the base of its various casino sites yields no further details about the company, simply some iGaming testing results and dates.
Several of the Kahnawake brands have advertised their free-play games through television ad campaigns across Canada, likely having gained a substantial number of players to their real-money online properties. Thus, it stands to reason that "Fresh Horizons Ltd" wished to port their existing Ontario-based players over to the new legal market, rather than risk losing them to the numerous newly legal Interac online casinos that serve the province in an official capacity.

ON criticism is drivel. These are the results that matter.
