Three more OLG sites earn highest RG accreditation

OLG Slots at Clinton Raceway, OLG Slots at Flamboro Downs, and OLG Slots at Grand River Raceway are the three latest OLG sites to earn RG Check accreditation. 

Now, a total of 16 sites and one gaming resort facility have been recognized by the most rigorous Responsible Gambling (RG) accreditation program in the world. The gaming sites that previously earned RG Check accreditation are:  

  • OLG Casino Brantford
  • OLG Casino Point Edward
  • OLG Casino Sault Ste. Marie
  • OLG Casino Thousand Islands
  • OLG Casino Thunder Bay
  • OLG Slots at Ajax Downs
  • OLG Slots at Dresden Raceway
  • OLG Slots at Georgian Downs
  • OLG Slots at Kawartha Downs
  • OLG Slots at Mohawk Racetrack
  • OLG Slots at Sudbury Downs
  • OLG Slots at Western Fair District
  • OLG Slots at Woodstock Raceway 

In addition, Caesars Windsor was the first casino resort property in the world to achieve this accreditation when it was recognized in 2012. 

Administered by the Responsible Gambling Council (RGC), the RG Check accreditation is based on an RG Index that is informed by international best practices and evaluates eight core standards: corporate policies, self-exclusion, advertising and promotion, informed decision making, assisting patrons who may have problems with gambling, access to money, venue and game features, and employee training. The sites met all of these standards, earning OLG the highly recognized accreditation. 

When it comes to Responsible Gambling programming, OLG will continue to pursue the highest standard. This includes the goal of earning the RG Check accreditation at each of its gaming sites. 

Maintaining OLG’s high quality RG program is critical to OLG’s modernization. In the future, qualified private sector service providers will be required to adhere to rigorous external standards like the RG Check and the regulations of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.



TORONTO – Today I have tendered my resignation from the post of President & Chief Executive Officer of OLG. I am leaving for a leadership position in the private sector that will be announced by the new organization in February. It’s been a tremendous privilege to serve the public alongside OLG employees since 2011. Under the leadership of Philip Olsson, Chair of the Board, and Acting President & CEO, Tom Marinelli, I am confident that OLG is well-positioned to modernize the lottery and gaming industry and to achieve great success in the years to come.

OLG is an Operational Enterprise responsible for province-wide lottery games and gaming facilities. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $38 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. OLG’s annual payments to the Province have helped support health care; education, research, prevention and treatment of problem gambling; amateur sport through the QUEST FOR GOLD program; and local and provincial charities.
