Toronto Rock Enter Third Year of Corporate Partnership with Mohawk Online
Oakville, ON – The Toronto Rock are pleased to announce their corporate partnership with Mohawk Online and Sports Interaction for a third consecutive National Lacrosse League season. This collaboration aims to continue the growth of the sport of lacrosse by bringing fans closer to the game and elevating the spectator experience through Sports Interaction’s full slate of NLL odds, while supporting the Mohawk community at the same time.
Lacrosse and betting games of skill and chance have been an integral part of Mohawk heritage dating back to before the European colonization of North America. Sports Interaction, which is owned and operated by Mohawk Online, has been a pillar in the online gaming community and was the first online sportsbook and casino licensed and regulated in Canada.
“We are excited to have Sports Interaction return as a partner for the third consecutive season,” said Rock Owner Jamie Dawick. “Their commitment to the Mohawk community is commendable and we look forward to working together for this and many years to come.”
Sports Interaction provides a full slate of odds for all games on the 2017-2018 NLL schedule, as well as thousands of other sports betting options for Canadian recreational gamblers. Through the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake, all revenue generated by Mohawk Online is invested back into the Kahnawake community.
“We are proud of our ongoing partnership with the Toronto Rock and are delighted to be working with such a first-class organization for the third straight season,” said Dean Montour, CEO of Mohawk Online. “The Rock franchise and their dedicated fan base have been instrumental in harvesting the sport of lacrosse across North America and this is a sport that is at the heart of Mohawk culture. It’s a natural fit to work alongside the Rock to elevate the NLL game experience with Sports Interaction’s odds, which in turn supports the Mohawk community. We’re very excited to connect with Toronto Rock and NLL enthusiasts this season.”
Sports Interaction is licensed and regulated by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission and the Jersey Gambling Commission, and operated by Mohawk Online Limited. We do not accept players under the age of 19 and operate a responsible betting policy.
Mohawk Online is a socio-economic initiative, wholly owned by the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake. Kahnawake has continuously exercised its aboriginal right to conduct, facilitate, and regulate gaming activities within and from the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawake since 1996. Mohawk Online invests its profits back into the local community, building a better future for the Mohawks of Kahnawake.
