HANMER RESIDENTS CELEBRATE $1 MILLION ENCORE WIN

TORONTO, ON – Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Francine and Laurent Chenier of Hanmer. The pair matched all seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the September 17, 2021 LOTTO MAX draw to win $1 million! They also won $5 on another ENCORE selection on the same ticket bringing their total winnings to $1,000,005.

Francine and Laurent, a retired married couple, said they are regular lottery players who play LOTTO 6/49, LOTTO MAX and LOTTARIO. “We always add ENCORE!” shared Francine while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up their winnings.

Francine said she gasped after scanning her ticket. “I thought we won $1,000 at first and called over Laurent,” she said. “I said, ‘No, I think you won much more than that!’” added Laurent.

The pair plan to travel, purchase a new car, complete some home renovations, and donate to the Sudbury hospice.

“It’s humbling – it still doesn’t feel real,” Francine smiled.

ENCORE offers 22 ways to win and can be played in conjunction with most lottery games for an extra $1. There is an ENCORE draw every day.

PROLINE+ POISED FOR PLENTY OF PUCK ACTION AS NEW HOCKEY SEASON STARTS TONIGHT

TORONTO, ON – The day Ontario hockey fans – and sports bettors – have been patiently waiting for has finally arrived! A new hockey season starts tonight with two games on the schedule and both are available for wagering on Ontario’s only legal online sportsbook, PROLINE+.

A recent survey of Ontario sports bettors indicated the NHL is the most popular league to bet on with 61 per cent of respondents saying it was their number one for wagers. And it may come as no surprise that in that same survey, Toronto led the pack as the favourite to win this season – 23 per cent picked the blue and white to come out victorious at the end of the cup race. Action on PROLINE+ to this point supports this trend as 27 per cent of bets on what team will be league champs have been placed on Toronto.

The survey indicated  Edmonton’s Connor McDavid as most likely to take the trophy for league MVP with 38 per cent of the votes, followed by Toronto’s Auston Matthews in second at 28 per cent. PROLINE+ players are leaning overwhelmingly in favour of McDavid – he currently owns 94 per cent of the early bets. Matthews is a distant second with just 3 per cent of bets to date.

Whether it’s pre-match betting on the winner of the game or placing a wager on which team is next to score, OLG’s PROLINE+ not only offers dynamic, competitive odds but is also accessible from any device. PROLINE+ also promotes responsible gambling and features player tools and educational materials from OLG’s globally recognized PlaySmart program.

Since PROLINE+ launched in late August, over 3.6 million bets have been placed on the site. Playing PROLINE+ is playing for Ontario as 100 per cent of proceeds are reinvested in provincial priorities that strengthen communities and improve the quality of life for all Ontarians. An active OLG.ca account is required and players must be 19 years of age or older and located in Ontario.

OTTAWA RESIDENT CELEBRATES $1 MILLION ENCORE WIN

TORONTO, ON – Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Lisa Boyce of Ottawa. Lisa matched all seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the June 19, 2021 ONTARIO 49 draw to win $1 million! Lisa also won $10 for matching three of six numbers on her ONTARIO 49 play bringing her total winnings to $1,000,010.

Lisa, who is an occasional lottery player, enjoys playing LOTTO 6/49 and ONTARIO 49 and always adds ENCORE. While picking up her big cheque at the OLG Prize Centre, she recounted how it took a while to realize she had won $1 million. “I checked my ticket at the ticket checker, and it displayed ‘BIG WIN’ but it didn’t resonate with me. So, I put the ticket in my pocket and went to another store and checked again. Again, it said, ‘BIG WIN,’ so I passed it to the store clerk to check through the lottery terminal, thinking I won $1,000. The person in line behind me said I may have won at least $250,000. My eyes went wide and the next thing I know I am on the phone with OLG and holding a receipt saying I won $1 million!”

Lisa was overcome with emotion. Her knees buckled and she went to a corner of the store and started crying into her boyfriend’s chest. “The clerk was so nice and brought me a roll of paper towel to clean away my tears! It was the most wonderful, emotional and surreal experience of my life!”

Lisa knows exactly what to do with the money and it will be focused on her family. “I am going to get my mom some in-home care to help her keep her independence. I will give some to my son and brother and save a chunk of money for myself. This is all to honour my family for the wonderful life they have given me.”

ENCORE offers 22 ways to win and can be played in conjunction with most lottery games for an extra $1. There is an ENCORE draw every day.

OLG is currently booking in-person prize claim appointments at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto only for those claims that require a face-to-face interview.

COUCHICHING FIRST NATION RESIDENT WINS TOP PRIZE WITH INSTANT $100,000 JACKPOT

TORONTO, ONDerek Turcotte of Couchiching First Nation, near Fort Frances is celebrating after winning a $100,000 top prize with INSTANT $100,000 JACKPOT (Game #2251).

Derek remained in shock over his first big win as he picked up his cheque at the OLG Prize Centre. He was excited to recount the story of his win. “I like playing INSTANT tickets for fun and the store manager recommended the $100,000 JACKPOT ticket because it was a new game. I was scratching the ticket at home when I saw a number “7” and it matched the $100,000 prize!”

It took having several others look at the ticket to make the 38-year-old believe that he won the top prize. “I asked my wife to confirm that I won the jackpot, but I still wasn’t convinced it was real so I ran to show my neighbour and he yelled ‘Holy, brother! You better take that ticket to the store!’ So, I did!”

The home chef says he may have a plan for this windfall, “I am considering investing in a food truck, but I will take my time to think about exactly what to do.”

Even though Derek has his $100,000 cheque in hand, he is still in disbelief, “I never thought I would win so big. This is an incredible experience!”

Joyce called her children to tell them about the big win. “They wanted me to facetime them when I told my husband. He was worried and thought something was wrong at first. We all had tears in our eyes!”

Joyce says this win will go a long way for her family. “I will share with my children and save for retirement,” she smiled.

“This is a dream come true,” Joyce concluded.

PROLINE+ SURVEY FACT SHEET

  • Ontario’s only legal online sportsbook PROLINE+ launched on August 27, allowing players to make a legal bet on a single event for the first time ever in Ontario, among many other sports betting options.
  • To further understand the player mindset, PROLINE+ surveyed 1,000 Ontario-based sports bettors about their views on online betting, the advancement of legal single event betting in Canada and their thoughts and opinions on betting on sports in general.
  • The survey revealed that 62%, almost two-thirds, of Ontario sports bettors say they’re now more likely to make a single-event sports bet because of its recent legalization in Canada.
  • This is ringing true for PROLINE+, as single event bets account for 77% of all wagers to date on the online sportsbook.
  • They care about giving back too – more than half of those surveyed say they’re more likely to use PROLINE+ to bet on sports knowing that 100% of the proceeds are invested in provincial priorities that improve the quality of life for all Ontarians.
  • OLG has already processed more than $6 million in bets on PROLINE+ – signalling that Ontario bettors have been eagerly awaiting a trustworthy option to lay down their bets.
  • The survey found that over half of respondents say betting on a game adds fun to the live sports experience, especially during the COVID-19.
  • In fact, 24% of those surveyed said they will attend more sports games in the next 12 months than before the pandemic, and 27% of those surveyed said betting on their favourite team during COVID-19 helped off-set the fact that they couldn’t go to games.
  • In total, just under half of Ontario’s sports bettors place a bet at least once a month, with almost one in four wagering at least once a week.
  • The survey confirmed a growing number of women are getting into the game – women make up about 1/3 of sports bettors in the province.
  • While the majority of bets are made on men’s professional sports, PROLINE+ features plenty of options to bet on women in sport which supports the growing interest in this betting segment.

Other key findings include:

  • Bad experiences placing bets: One in three frequent sports bettors (defined as those who bet once a week or more) in Ontario say they have had a bad experience using an online app or website to bet in the past.
  • Ontario sports bettors are excited to bet safely: 51% of frequent bettors said they feel good about PROLINE+, which promotes responsible gambling and includes player tools and educational materials from OLG’s award-winning PlaySmart program.
  • Conversation fodder: 66% of frequent bettors say that betting on sports gives them something to talk about with their friends.
  • Great source of entertainment: More than half of sports bettors in Ontario say betting is a great source of entertainment and can make watching games more fun.
  • A “novel” idea: 37% of bettors and 44% of frequent bettors are interested in Novelty betting on award shows and other pop-culture events.

NEW PROLINE+ SURVEY SHOWS 62% OF ONTARIO BETTORS ARE KEEN TO PLACE LEGAL SINGLE BETS

TORONTO, ON – This fall sports season is unlike any other for Ontario’s sports fans who now have a legal option to bet online on single event sports with PROLINE+ from OLG. A new survey for PROLINE+ conducted ahead of launch shows that almost two-thirds of Ontario sports bettors are now more likely to make a single-event sports bet because of its recent legalization in Canada. This has proven to be true since the launch of OLG’s new digital sportsbook as, in fact, single event bets account for 77% of all wagers to date. The survey also shows more than half of bettors are keen to place those bets on OLG’s PROLINE+ platform because all of the proceeds are invested in provincial priorities that improve the quality of life for all Ontarians.

“We’re excited to be first to market bringing Ontarians what they told us they’ve been looking for – a trustworthy, best-in-class platform that complements their sports watching experience,” said David Pridmore, OLG Chief Digital and Strategy Officer. “Since we launched our online sportsbook PROLINE+ in late-August, we’ve already processed more than $6 million in bets, and we’re expecting even more interest in the platform as more sports and leagues start new seasons and as our player base continues to scale.”

The PROLINE+ survey also found that 37% of bettors and 44% of frequent bettors (defined as those who bet once a week or more) were interested in betting on novelty markets which include award show results like those that will be presented this weekend for the best in television entertainment. Ontarians say they’re keen to bet safely using an option like PROLINE+, which promotes responsible gambling and includes player tools and educational materials from OLG’s award-winning PlaySmart program.

The survey found one in three frequent sports bettors in Ontario said they had a bad experience placing a bet on a grey market online app or website in the past. Just under half of Ontario’s sports bettors place a bet at least once a month, with almost one in four wagering at least once a week. Just over a quarter of all sports bettors, and half of frequent bettors, said they bet more often during COVID-19 than before the pandemic, in part because it helped offset not being able to go to games.

Other key findings from the survey include:

  • Player satisfaction: More than half of Ontario sports bettors surveyed said betting is a great source of entertainment and makes watching games more fun.
  • Conversation fodder: 45% of respondents say that betting on sports gives them something to talk about with their friends.
  • Giving back: More than half of those surveyed said they’re more likely to use PROLINE+ to bet on sports knowing that 100% of the proceeds will stay in Ontario to help fund government priorities such as health care.
  • Engagement: 47% of frequent bettors wouldn’t watch as many games if they weren’t betting.
  • COVID-19 impact: 24% of those surveyed said they will attend more sports games in the next 12 months than before the pandemic, and 27% of those surveyed said betting on their favourite team during COVID-19 helped off-set the fact that they couldn’t go to games.

About PROLINE+: PROLINE+ is available online on any device and features dynamic, competitive odds, new sports and markets and new ways to bet, including single event and live betting. There are thousands of betting options available at any time, including all major North American sports leagues and some major international sports.

About the PROLINE+ Survey:  The survey was conducted by Hill and Knowlton Strategies on behalf of OLG. A total of 1,000 Ontario residents were surveyed between August 16-23, 2021. The sample was randomly drawn from LEO, Leger’s panel of potential survey respondents. All respondents were of legal gambling age and had ever bet money on sports either online or with a sports lottery at a store/kiosk. An associated margin of error for a probability-based sample of this size would be ±3%, 19 times out of 20. Frequent bettors are defined as respondents who said they bet on sports once a week or more.

OLG’S NEW PROLINE+ ONLINE SPORTSBOOK HITS $1 MILLION IN WAGERS IN LESS THAN A WEEK

TORONTO, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is pleased to announce that in less than a full week of operation it has already processed over $1 million in bets on the new PROLINE+ online sportsbook. The only legal online sportsbook in Ontario launched last Friday and Ontario bettors have been eagerly checking things out since. Early results show bettors are excited to have a trusted option to place a bet on a single event, as approximately 74 per cent of wagers accepted through Tuesday evening were singles.

In fact, the very first bet to come in on the new PROLINE+ was a single wager on a professional baseball game (Minnesota vs. Milwaukee) and baseball has continued to dominate the betting action. Bets on baseball, football and soccer have accounted for almost 82 per cent of the wagering since launch. PROLINE+ has also seen plenty of live betting action as well – nearly 37 per cent of bets placed have occurred while the games were in-progress.

“Ontario bettors had been waiting for a best-in-class option to place bets and that’s exactly what OLG has delivered with PROLINE+,” said Dave Pridmore, OLG Chief Digital and Strategy Officer. “This product is competitive and exciting and players are seeing that. We’re experiencing excellent engagement with those who registered early, and we only expect to see the number of new users increase as word about PROLINE+ continues to spread, particularly as the American football season gets underway next week.”

PROLINE+ is available online on any device and features dynamic, competitive odds, new sports and markets and new ways to bet including single event and live betting. There are thousands of betting options available at any time including all major North American sports leagues and some major international sports. PROLINE+ is the only legal online sportsbook in Ontario, reinvesting 100 per cent of proceeds for provincial priorities that improve the quality of life for all Ontarians.

NEW OLG APP IS THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

TORONTO, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is adding more choice and convenience to the way Ontarians “play” with the launch of the new OLG App. The free app is easy to use and great for getting right to the game, be it in the online casino or the lottery lobby. Better still, the ever-popular ticket scanner feature is included as well so players can experience their winning moment anywhere in the province. The OLG App is being released for Android devices this week and will be followed shortly by an iOS compatible version.

“OLG.ca is the trusted digital platform of choice in Ontario and now our players can have that same confidence in the OLG App, whether they’re making a deposit, playing their favourite game or scanning their tickets to check for winners,” said Duncan Hannay, OLG President and CEO. “With over one million registered players on OLG.ca, we are intent on continuing to deliver world-class gaming entertainment for Ontarians while driving forward as a leader and an innovator in the digital space.”

Customers can access jackpot information and the scanner for lottery tickets without having to log in, but an OLG.ca account is required to make lottery purchases, play casino games or make deposits and withdrawals in the app. Users of OLG’s current lottery app are encouraged to register for an OLG.ca account as their existing login information is not compatible with the new app. New players can sign up now to receive up to $300 in total casino bonus funds.

OLG’s award-winning PlaySmart program tools are at players’ fingertips within the app so they can get the facts before they play and set personal limits to keep gambling fun and entertaining. Players must be 18 or older to play lottery and 19 or older to play casino games on the app.

The new app is a collaboration between OLG and Bede Gaming and is a one-stop shop to buy lottery tickets and play many casino games offered on OLG.ca, check tickets bought in-store and find game and jackpot information. Bede provided the digital solution for the new OLG.ca and player platform launched by OLG in late 2020 which has seen hundreds of thousands of players register since that time.

“The launch of the new OLG App is the latest in a series of exciting product launches for OLG and Bede. We are extremely proud of the App, having worked hand in hand with OLG, and look forward to giving Ontarians a first-class mobile experience,” said Sarah Hitchcock, Bede Gaming Executive Vice President (North America).

OLG continues to grow in the digital space as a customer-obsessed company and launching the new OLG App reinforces our competitive position by increasing access and interaction with our products while keeping our customers’ needs at the centre of our innovation. One hundred per cent of proceeds from OLG.ca and the new OLG App are reinvested in provincial priorities that improve the quality of life for all Ontarians.

WELCOMING CUSTOMERS AND EMPLOYEES BACK TO ONTARIO CASINOS & CHARITABLE GAMING CENTRES

Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and its gaming service providers are pleased to welcome back customers and employees to casinos and charitable gaming centres across Ontario as part of Step 3 of the provincial re-opening plan. The health and safety of customers, employees and the host gaming communities remains, as always, a priority for OLG and our service providers as these gaming facilities begin to resume business after so many months.

“OLG is pleased to see the Province’s popular gaming facilities reopen to provide world class entertainment, dining options, and other amenities to adult Ontarians in a safe and secure environment,” said Duncan Hannay, OLG’s President and CEO. “In partnership with our service providers, OLG is proud to contribute to the re-opening of the economy with health and safety as a top priority.”

All gaming proceeds are reinvested in Ontario’s quality of life including health, education and community-based infrastructure. Casinos and charitable gaming centres also create jobs locally, bring capital investment, help local charities and result in payments to host municipalities.

The re-opening of these gaming facilities is subject to enhanced safety measures such as:

  • Limiting capacity to not more than 50 per cent indoors and 75 per cent outdoors while maintaining physical distancing requirements;
  • Requiring all employees and guests to wear a face covering in indoor settings;
  • Adopting face coverings in certain outdoor public settings;
  • Screening guests with health-related questions upon entering the facility;
  • Positioning hand sanitizing stations throughout the gaming facility;
  • Offering enhanced cleaning and sanitization; and
  • Installing plexiglass barriers between employees and guests.

These requirements are aligned with the guidance of provincial and federal public health authorities.

For casinos and charitable gaming centres, re-opening is contingent on adopting a safety plan that is reviewed by local public health officials and submitted to the regulator, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). Re-opening dates for the casinos and charitable gaming centres are set and communicated by each service provider.

Please contact the casino or charitable gaming centres closest to you for more information on reopening details and health and safety requirements.

OLG AND POLLARD BANKNOTE SIGN TEN-YEAR TICKET PRINTING CONTRACT

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has recommitted to its long-standing and valuable partnership with Pollard Banknote Limited (Pollard Banknote), signing a 10-year contract to print INSTANT lottery tickets. The agreement, which includes an additional 5-year option to extend through 2037, will see OLG order more than two billion tickets over the term and will create new jobs in Ontario.

OLG’s previous contract with Pollard resulted in the establishment of a ticket finishing plant in Sault Ste. Marie with a commitment of 100 full-time employees. Since then, Pollard has been able to hire nearly 20 additional employees in the Sault due to the productivity of the plant. This new agreement will see that complement increased to a total of 140 full-time employees, providing significant benefit to the local economy.

“OLG is pleased to be furthering our strong partnership with Pollard Banknote, securing the continuity and sustained growth and development of our INSTANT lottery business. For well over a decade we’ve worked together to find ways to deliver value for money for the people of Ontario while creating world class product for our players,” said Duncan Hannay, President and CEO of OLG. “We’re happy to be working with a partner like Pollard to create employment opportunities in this province. The new positions at the Sault Ste. Marie plant demonstrate our shared commitment to supporting economic recovery in the communities where we operate our businesses.”

“Pollard Banknote is very proud of our long-standing partnership with OLG which has been productive and mutually beneficial. We have worked hard to help OLG increase sales and offer an expanding selection of innovative products and services to meet the players’ evolving preferences,” said Doug Pollard, Co-Chief Executive Officer, Pollard Banknote. “Additionally, we are thrilled that the leadership and hard work of our dedicated staff at our Sault Ste. Marie plant are being rewarded with this contract extension.”

“I am so happy to highlight the collaboration between OLG and Pollard Banknote. As I always say, we work better when we work together,” said Ross Romano, MPP for Sault Ste. Marie. “Partnerships like this are critical to our community’s economic recovery and prosperity. Partnerships such as this are not only bringing more business into our community and growing our economy but are also providing significant employment to Sault Ste. Marie.”

The services provided by Pollard Banknote have enabled OLG to nearly double the revenue of the INSTANT business since becoming its primary printer in 2007. Pollard also supplies innovative product solutions like OLG’s QuickTicket, available in select retail locations across Ontario.

OLG’s INSTANT lottery business, led by the popular BINGO, CROSSWORD and CASH FOR LIFE games as well as the exciting THE BIG/BIGGER SPIN products, achieved sales of $1.4 billion in Fiscal 2020.

We are removing the current games with the hope that a superior product may be able to be offered in the casinos in the near future.

Q:        WILL YOU REPLACE THEM WITH SOMETHING NEW AT THE GAMING SITES?

A:        We are removing the current games with the hope that a superior product may be able to be offered in the casinos in the near future.

In the meantime, Sports lottery players can continue to wager on the retail PRO•LINE lineup of games at over 10,000 lottery sales locations across Ontario.

Q:        WHAT DO I DO IF I HAVE A WINNING TICKET FOR A CASINO SPORTS GAME? HOW DO I CLAIM IT?

A:        Casino Sports players with outstanding prize claims can mail them to the OLG Prize Centre for processing.

OLG is making an exception to the conditions for claiming Casino Sports prizes and will accept claims for tickets issued on or after March 16, 2019 that are received by the OLG Prize Centre by September 15, 2021.

OLG DELIVERS VALUE TO THE PEOPLE OF ONTARIO IN AN UNPRECEDENTED YEAR

TORONTO, ON – Despite the material impact of the COVID-19 pandemic to land-based gaming operations, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) continues to work hard to deliver value for the benefit of the province.

“The accomplishments achieved under these circumstances are a testament to the resiliency of the organization and the people of OLG,” says Peter Deeb, Chair of OLG’s Board of Directors. “Apart from delivering continued profitability in the fiscal year, OLG’s new President and CEO, Duncan Hannay, is leading an innovative strategy to drive the next horizon of growth. This will include job-creating investments in land-based gaming, improved lottery performance through innovation in product and distribution, and transformative development of the digital gaming channel — positioning OLG to actively support economic recovery in Ontario.”

Protecting the health and safety of employees and customers remains a priority for OLG. Extensive safeguards were established early in the pandemic at corporate offices, the OLG Prize Centre and casinos across the province to ensure safe workspaces and customer-facing operations. OLG also proudly utilized its lottery terminals in thousands of local retail outlets to communicate provincial messaging in support of public health efforts.

In this unprecedented environment, OLG achieved the following milestones in the last 12 months:

  • The modernization of nearly 10,000 new lottery terminals across Ontario and an upgrade to the lottery network to enable new experiences at retail points of sale;
  • The launch of the new OLG.ca, which has meaningfully exceeded growth objectives set for iGaming and iLottery revenue and profitability;
  • The introduction of the exciting LIGHTNING LOTTO game — a new favourite with players;
  • The launch of $5 INSTANT PLINKO® with record sales made possible through a special “Support Local” initiative that returns all profits of this game to retailers for three months; and,
  • The payment of lottery prizes to OLG’s valued customers, totaling $1.8 billion from April 2020 to January 2021.

In addition, OLG also continued to deliver value-for-money for the Province through stakeholder supports, responsible fiscal management and good governance:

  • More than $100 million achieved in durable cost savings through new efficiencies and spending deferrals;
  • Early repayment of $60 million drawn from the provincial credit facility; and,
  • Continued support for horse racing under the Long-Term Funding Agreement, and for Ontario First Nations under existing agreements.

“OLG continues to move forward consistent with the Government’s mandate to maximize efficiency and earnings, in addition to reducing unnecessary costs and financial waste at every opportunity,” adds Deeb.

OLG is on track to deliver a positive return to the Province for 2020-2021 despite the ongoing closure of many of the 27 provincial casinos due to emergency measures necessary to protect the health and safety of Ontarians. OLG’s net profit to the province will continue to help fund health care, education, and other priorities that benefit the people of Ontario. With a new business year approaching, OLG is intent on responsible growth in new channels with new products to deliver value for business partners, communities and all Ontarians.

Acting in a socially responsible way, OLG conducts and manages land-based gaming facilities; the sale of province-wide lottery games; Internet gaming; and the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres.

TORONTO, ON –  Following an extensive recruitment process, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) announces Pinder Basi as the organization’s new Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

“Pinder is an experienced executive with a proven track record in finance and business with a focus on growth, profitability and collaboration,” says Duncan Hannay, OLG’s President and CEO. “His successes in large transformations will be an asset as we work together to position OLG for a post-pandemic recovery, digital growth, and new opportunities to maximize value for our customers and the people of Ontario.”

“I am pleased to be joining OLG and look forward to working with the team at such a crucial and exciting time for the organization,” says Pinder Basi. “I believe my experience with growing companies, in both the retail and e-commerce sectors, and with entertainment content delivery, will assist OLG as it charts its new strategic course.”

Pinder is replacing outgoing CFO Lisa Bell-Murray, who is retiring after 30 years of valued service to OLG. “On behalf of all OLG, I would like to thank Lisa for the many professional and personal contributions she has made to this organization over the course of her impressive career,” says Hannay. “We wish her the very best in her retirement.”

BE “GIFT SMART” THIS HOLIDAY SEASON: LOTTERY GIFTS ARE FOR GROWN-UPS ONLY

TORONTO, ON – Like many Ontarians this time of year, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has holiday traditions. While some of those traditions may change this year due to the pandemic, we do want to take this opportunity to again remind parents and adults that all lottery products, including INSTANT tickets, are a form of gambling and are not suitable gifts for children and minors.

Lottery products may be great stocking stuffers, but not for children and youth. It is important that parents and adults understand the proven risks and impacts associated with underage gambling. Please only buy lottery gifts for friends and family who are 18 years of age and older.

There is extensive free information and resources available dealing with youth and gambling:

  • The YMCA Youth Gambling Awareness Program (YGAP) is a free service funded by Ontario Ministry of Health to raise awareness among youth of gambling risks, how to make informed decisions, and healthy, active lifestyles.
  • The problemgambling.ca website, run by the Gambling, Gaming & Technology Use (GGTU) Knowledge Exchange of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), offers information and resources for parents who are concerned about their own gambling, and the effects of problem gambling on children.
  • The Responsible Gambling Council (RGC), an independent non-profit organization focused on the prevention of problem gambling in Canada and worldwide, with information on Teens or Young Adults and gambling.

Also, OLG’s PlaySmart.ca can help parents understand the facts when it comes to games, and concepts like odds and randomness. There’s also a “Finding Help” section with links to the support resources above and more.

OLG has supported the National Council on Problem Gambling and McGill University’s Holiday Campaign for many years, which encourages lotteries in Canada, the United States and around the world to promote the important message that lottery is not for kids.

OLG is a crown agency that develops world-class gaming entertainment for the Province of Ontario.

PROPOSED ACQUISITION OF GREAT CANADIAN GAMING CORPORATION BY AFFILIATES OF APOLLO GLOBAL MANAGEMENT INC.

TORONTO, ON – OLG provides world class gaming entertainment to communities across Ontario, which includes casinos operated by diversified service providers.

One of OLG’s service providers, Great Canadian Gaming Corporation (Great Canadian), is considering a proposal to be acquired by funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, Inc. (Apollo).

Duncan Hannay, OLG President and CEO stated: “The proposed acquisition is expected to support significant investment and profitable growth of gaming operations at Great Canadian casinos in Ontario. This benefits OLG, the Province, and the communities that host 11 casinos operated by Great Canadian in Ontario. We look forward to our continuing work with the Great Canadian team to realize this potential.”

“Ontario actively supports job-creating investments in communities province-wide. OLG welcomes investment to the Province, and we look forward to working together with Great Canadian to grow the economic benefits the gaming sector brings to Ontario,” added Peter Deeb, OLG Chair.

Apollo has indicated their intention to ensure a safe reopening of casinos in Ontario and that Great Canadian will remain headquartered in Toronto, led by a Canadian management team and with Canadian board members.

The Province’s commercial interests in casinos are conducted and managed by OLG and are protected under contractual agreements. These contracts remain in place and are unaffected by the proposed acquisition. OLG’s contracts with service providers include certain change of control consent rights in favour of OLG.

Since taking over day-to-day operations of casinos in three gaming bundles, Great Canadian has invested millions of new capital in Ontario. Examples include new casinos in Belleville, Peterborough, and major developments underway in Pickering and Casino Woodbine.

Great Canadian casinos are located in three gaming bundles — GTA (in partnership with Brookfield Asset Management Inc), West GTA and East – and include: Casino Woodbine, Great Blue Heron Casino, Casino Ajax, Shorelines Casino Peterborough, Shorelines Casino Belleville, Shorelines Slots at Kawartha Downs,  Shorelines Casino Thousand Islands, Elements Casino Mohawk, Elements Casino Brantford, Elements Casino Flamboro and Elements Casino Grand River.

Apollo points to Great Canadian’s strong track record of corporate citizenship and community involvement, and indicates an intention to carry forward this legacy.

Questions about the details of the proposed acquisition should be directed to Great Canadian.

Most recently, he was President and CEO of Street Capital Group Inc, a Canadian public company that delivered best-in-class deposit and lending products through its Schedule I bank subsidiary and grew to become one of the country’s largest originators of residential mortgages. Hannay previously served as Chief Operating Officer of Finastra, a global leader in software solutions spanning retail banking, transaction banking, lending, and treasury and capital markets. He also served as an executive leader at Canadian-based D+H as President of Global Lending Solutions, and President of D+H Canada. In addition, Hannay has held senior executive positions with Scotiabank as well as E*TRADE Financial.

“I look forward to working with the team at OLG to build a strategy for the future and to lead the organization through this unprecedented and very challenging time. I intend to work collaboratively with OLG’s valued partners to capitalize on growth opportunities and contribute to Ontario’s recovery in communities province-wide,” said Hannay.

As one of Canada’s largest companies, OLG is responsible for thousands of jobs and capital investment in communities across Ontario. Under Hannay, OLG will continue its commitment to responsible gambling with its award-winning PlaySmart program.

As previously communicated, outgoing President and CEO Stephen Rigby agreed to stay on at OLG until a successor was identified and to assist with a seamless transition of the business.

“I would like to thank Stephen for his leadership at OLG for more than five years, delivering strong financial growth and the modernization of our land-based gaming business,” said Chair Deeb. “Stephen has been critical to ensuring that OLG is positioned for success well into the future.”

WIN A JACKPOT ON THE SPOT WITH THE NEW LIGHTNING LOTTO GAME FROM OLG

Toronto, ON – OLG’s new LIGHTNING LOTTO game has struck at Ontario lottery retailers with a growing jackpot that can be won instantly in-store. This game is the first in Ontario where the winning numbers are drawn daily before sales begin, so each ticket has a chance to win the top prize – a jackpot that starts at $125,000 and grows with each play – as soon as it is purchased.

“Imagine winning a jackpot as fast as lightning,” said Lori Sullivan, OLG’s Chief Operating Officer. “LIGHTNING LOTTO is the first lottery draw game in Ontario where players don’t have to wait to find out if they’ve won a jackpot, because the draw has already happened! OLG continues to innovate and create unique products to give our players – existing and new – choice in the games and the way they play.”

When a LIGHTNING LOTTO ticket is requested the lottery terminal screen will play an animated lightning bolt and thunder crack, creating excitement for the player and others in the store.

How to Play:

  • LIGHTNING LOTTO is $2 per play by Quick Pick and available exclusively at lottery retailers.
  • The jackpot starts at $125,000 and each LIGHTNING LOTTO play purchased contributes to the growing jackpot.
  • When the jackpot is won, it resets to $125,000 and starts to grow again. The jackpot can be won more than once a day! If it is not won, the jackpot amount carries over to the next day.
  • Each play consists of three lines of five numbers from 1 to 49.
  • You can buy up to five plays on a ticket. LIGHTNING LOTTO is a pay before you play game.
  • Other available prizes range from $2 to $5,000.
  • Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 4.47.
  • Match all five numbers in any one line on your LIGHTNING LOTTO ticket with those drawn earlier that day to win the jackpot.
  • LIGHTNING LOTTO tickets can only be redeemed at an OLG lottery retailer or the OLG Prize Centre.

LIGHTNING LOTTO Quick Picks and winning numbers are determined by using Random Number Generator technology. Every draw is overseen and audited both by OLG and independent third-party experts to ensure the game’s integrity.

Sales for LIGHTNING LOTTO began today at OLG’s nearly 10,000 retail outlets across the province. For more information on How to Play as well as full prize details and odds of winning, visit OLG.ca.

OLG STATEMENT: PHASED APPROACH TO REOPENING ONTARIO CASINOS AND CHARITABLE GAMING CENTRES

The health and safety of casino customers, employees and the host gaming communities remains as always, a priority for the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and its service providers.

The Government of Ontario announced as part of its Stage 3 re-opening plan, it is permitting certain businesses to re-open in certain regions, including casinos and Charitable Gaming centres, which have been closed since March 16-17, 2020.

The re-opening of these facilities is subject to the following restrictions:

  • A maximum of 50 customers in the gaming establishment at any given time;
  • A requirement that all persons on-site adhere to two metre physical distancing; and,
  • For eligible casinos, no table games at this time.

This Stage 3 re-opening is consistent with the province’s regional approach it took during Stage 2. Eligible casinos and Charitable Gaming centres have been selected on the basis of location and risk, subject to the advice of public health officials.

For casinos and Charitable Gaming centres, re-opening is contingent on having a safety plan for the site (which must include mandatory use of masks or face-coverings for customers), reviewed by an appropriate expert and submitted to the regulator, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).Re-opening dates for eligible casino and Charitable Gaming centres will be set by the service providers and communicated by them. The specific reopening date for each gaming site will vary depending on a site’s readiness and commercial viability to operate under the mandatory restrictions.

Working in partnership with Ontario, its industry partners, and the AGCO, OLG is proud to contribute to the re-opening of the economy with health and safety as a top priority.

OLG PRIZE CENTRE RESUMES IN-PERSON PRIZE CLAIMS

TORONTO, ON – In-person prize claims for winning-ticket holders of $50,000 or more have resumed at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. The gradual resumption of in-person prize claims begins with a by-appointment only process prioritizing players who have been unable to claim their prizes since the temporary closure of the OLG Prize Centre to the public on March 17, 2020.

To best protect customers and staff, measures recommended by public health officials, are in place at the Prize Centre to prevent and reduce the spread of COVID-19, including: 

  • physical distancing;
  • increased cleaning of public and shared spaces;
  • available hand sanitizing stations; and
  • the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as masks by customers.

As such, the number of potential claimants who will be allowed inside the Prize Centre at any given time has been significantly reduced. At this time, appointments are being extended to jackpot and major prize claimants.

Upon successfully contacting the claimants of prizes of $50,000 or more and making those arrangements, the Prize Centre will begin to reach out to claimants of $10,000 or more to offer prize claim appointments. Future announcements will be made as to when OLG will open appointments to others wishing to claim their prize in-person at the Prize Centre.

 However, in-person claims are not required for prizes of less than $50,000 and players are reminded:

  • Prize claims of up to $49,999.90 can be submitted by mail, following the instructions on OLG.ca or by calling the OLG Support Centre at 1-800-387-0098.
  • Lottery prizes of up to $999.90 can be redeemed at any one of the 10,000 lottery retail outlets provincewide. The payment of these prizes is subject to the availability of cash at specific outlets

While the Prize Centre was not conducting in-person claims, OLG continued to pay thousands of customers prizes sent in by mail totalling more than $17 million. The mail-in prize limit was increased from $9,999.90 to $49,999.90 to allow more customers the opportunity to claim their prizes during this unprecedented time while still upholding prize integrity.

OLG appreciates the patience and understanding from our players as we worked to implement these additional procedures to ensure the safety of our customers and our staff.

CELEBRATING $13.2 MILLION RAISED FOR PICKERING CHARITIES THROUGH CHARITABLE BINGO AND GAMING REVITALIZATION

PICKERING, ON – Ontario’s Charitable Bingo and Gaming Revitalization initiative is celebrating an important milestone in Pickering. More than $13 million has been raised and benefited 62 local charities part of the Pickering Charitable Gaming Association as a result of the revitalization of charitable bingo and gaming.

This program, which began 15 years ago, is delivered through a partnership between Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association (OCGA), the Commercial Gaming Association of Ontario (CGAO), local charities and gaming and bingo centre operators.

Delta Bingo and Gaming Pickering hosted the official celebration for the $13.2 million milestone. This location converted to a Charitable Gaming Centre in 2012. Today’s event was attended by Peter Bethlenfalvy, President of the Treasury Board and MPP Pickering-Uxbridge, Maurice Brenner, City Councillor for the City of Pickering, David Fraser, Senior Director of Charitable Gaming at OLG, and Lynn Cassidy, Executive Director of the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association.

“Raising $13.2 million to benefit local charities and non-profit organizations in our community is a tremendous achievement,” said Peter Bethlenfalvy,MPP for Pickering-Uxbridge. “The revitalization of charitable gaming has resulted in sustaining essential programs in the Pickering community and enhancing the services across Durham Region. I would like to commend the charities involved in this initiative, their volunteers, and the gaming center staff for their efforts in reaching this milestone.”

“The City of Pickering is very proud of its community partnership with Delta Bingo and Gaming, Ontario Lottery and Gaming and the 62 charities and not-for-profits that have contributed $13.2 million for important programs and services in our city,” said Mayor Dave Ryan. “Due to the significant efforts of the many volunteers, all of these funds remain in our community and benefit the residents of Pickering and surrounding area.”

“OLG is proud of the Charitable Bingo and Gaming Revitalization initiative and the role we play in providing sustainable revenue sources to the charities that serve the City of Pickering,” said David Fraser, Senior Director, Charitable Gaming at OLG.

“Today is celebrating the wonderful success of Charitable Gaming in Pickering,” said Lynn Cassidy, Executive Director of the OCGA. “This initiative is making a big difference to many local charities and non-profits that provide important programs and services.”

Background on Charitable Gaming in Ontario

In the past 15 years, OLG has been working with the CGAO and the OCGA to revitalize the province’s Charitable Bingo and Gaming industry. By developing and introducing new products and technologies that have invigorated the traditional charitable gaming experience, more money has been generated for thousands of local charities across the province. The revitalization initiative is preserving and enhancing funding for charities across Ontario while creating economic benefits, including employment opportunities at local charitable gaming centres.

A pilot program was started in 2005 to test electronic versions of existing paper-based bingo games with six charity bingo centres in five communities in Ontario.

Following the success of this pilot project, a phased rollout of a new suite of electronic games was introduced to other charitable gaming sites in the province. This started in 2012.  The new charitable games offer customers more choice, and complement existing paper bingo games:

  • Electronic Bingo: Charitable Gaming Centres offer terminals with touch screens that allow players to touch the screen to dab the numbers and play along.   Includes new games such as Upik8 where the players can pick their own numbers to play.
  • TAP ‘N PLAY games:  A collection of electronic games played on terminals or cabinet style devices.  The evolution of bingo and break open games featuring entertaining displays.

The new games allow Charitable Gaming Centres to offer more customer choice and appeal to a broader demographic, while providing a different gaming entertainment experience from traditional bingo.

In total, 32 Charitable Gaming Centres have raised more than $274 million in additional money for local charities and their communities.

As part of the revitalization OLG implemented its responsible gambling platform, PlaySmart, at all 32 Charitable Gaming Centres. The PlaySmart program and on-site PlaySmart Centres provide staff, volunteers, new and seasoned players with information on positive play and assistance to those who may express concerns about their gambling.  PlaySmart is the go-to place for facts, tools and advice.  Approximately every other month PlaySmart Centre staff visit the sites to answer questions, connect with players, and run interactive educational events.  PlaySmart Centres are operated and managed by the Responsible Gambling Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of problem gambling.

OLG MAKES SECOND-QUARTER PAYMENTS TO GAMING SITE HOST COMMUNITIES

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has issued second-quarter (July 1 to September 30, 2019) non-tax gaming revenue payments totalling $37,660,974 to 25 communities which currently host gaming facilities.

To date, host communities have received more than $1.6 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.

“Revenues generated at local gaming sites directly contribute to better quality of life for Ontarians,” said Rod Phillips, Ontario Minister of Finance. “Projects to improve local infrastructure like roads and public transit as well as community programs and services all benefit from OLG’s tremendous partnerships with host municipalities.”

These payments are made under an equitable formula that determines the funds communities receive for hosting a gaming facility and are based on a graduated scale of gaming revenue that is consistent across all sites in Ontario.

OLG provides the Ontario government with its largest source of non-tax revenue from Government Business Enterprises. In 2018-2019, this amounted to $2.47 billion.

Sales for the new LOTTO MAX start Saturday, May 11, 2019, with the first draw on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 and the second draw on Friday, May 17, 2019.

OLG SELECTS SERVICE PROVIDER FOR NIAGARA GAMING BUNDLE

TORONTO, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has selected Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE) as the service provider for the Niagara Gaming Bundle, following a competitive procurement process.

The Niagara Gaming Bundle includes Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara. MGE will also operate the future 5,000-seat Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre, located adjacent to Fallsview.

“Selecting Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment is the latest step OLG is taking in our land-based gaming modernization, which is investing in communities and providing customers with new and exciting entertainment options,” said Stephen Rigby, OLG’s President and CEO. “By leveraging the success of the Niagara casinos and integrating with the wide mix of entertainment and tourist offerings in the area, MGE will help ensure the long-term competitiveness of the Niagara gaming market—particularly in relation to markets across the border.”

“As a brand known for our all-encompassing entertainment destinations, we are excited to work with OLG, the City of Niagara Falls, Canadian Niagara Hotels Inc., Niagara Falls Entertainment Partners and other local stakeholders in supporting a twin-anchor strategy that is critical to the success of tourism throughout the Niagara region,” said Anthony Casdia, Senior Vice President of Business Intelligence, Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment. “The Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre will be used to create unique experiences for the benefit of the Niagara Region, create more jobs, and encourage economic growth. As the operators of one of the most successful arenas in the U.S. over the last 15 years, we are eager to put our experience to work and establish Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre as one of Canada’s top-ranked venues.”

MGE plans to leverage the existing Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara sites in conjunction with the future Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre to create a dynamic entertainment experience that is expected to drive increased visitation to Niagara Falls. Customers will be offered world-class entertainment and amenities while the region is expected to benefit from economic development and increased job opportunities. MGE looks forward to becoming an important part of the Niagara community and partnering with multiple local stakeholders, including Canadian Niagara Hotels Inc., the current landlord of Casino Niagara and a local developer, as well as Niagara Falls Entertainment Partners, the developer of the Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre.

“In selecting Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, OLG has selected an internationally recognized gaming destination operator which will take Niagara’s casinos to the next level. I am confident MGE will work collaboratively with the community,” said Dino DiCienzo, President, Canadian Niagara Hotels Inc.

While MGE will be responsible for the day-to-day gaming operations in the bundle, OLG will continue to:

  • Provide strategic oversight of the Niagara Gaming Bundle and Ontario gaming marketplace—including approvals related to material operational changes
  • Conduct and manage gaming in the bundle
  • Require compliance with applicable laws, regulations and standards
  • Be the owner of key player information
  • Require service providers to uphold the high standards of OLG’s Responsible Gambling program, including the self-exclusion program
  • Make Municipality Contribution Agreement payments to the host community.

Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara employees are employed by Falls Management Group L.P. Although employees of the Niagara casinos are not OLG employees, OLG is requiring MGE to retain them for a period of no less than 12 months. This is consistent with all other Gaming Bundles in Ontario. Unionized employees will transfer to the service provider under the terms and conditions of their current collective agreement.

OLG has entered into a Transition and Asset Purchase Agreement with MGE for the Niagara Gaming Bundle, which sets out the customary closing conditions to be satisfied for OLG and MGE to enter into a 21-year Casino Operating and Services Agreement (COSA).

To OLG, the integrity of its procurement process is of the utmost importance.

In order to ensure an open and transparent process for all proponents, OLG has engaged the services of an impartial Fairness Monitor to advise throughout the process and provide oversight on the fairness of the procurement.

OLG expects that the service provider will take over day-to-day operations in the summer of 2019.

the United States, including Connecticut, New Jersey, Washington, Pennsylvania, as well as northern Asia. MGE are owners and operators of Connecticut Sun, a professional basketball team in the WNBA and New England black wolves, a professional lacrosse team in the National Lacrosse League.

OLG SELECTS SERVICE PROVIDER FOR CENTRAL GAMING BUNDLE

TORONTO, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has selected Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited (Gateway) as the service provider for the Central Gaming Bundle, following a competitive procurement process.

The Central Gaming Bundle includes OLG Slots at Georgian Downs and Casino Rama Resort. Gateway will have the opportunity to build a new gaming and entertainment facility in Wasaga Beach or Collingwood. The proposed new facility will be subject to all necessary approvals.

“Selecting Gateway is the latest step OLG is taking as we continue to bring new jobs and economic development to communities across Ontario,” said Stephen Rigby, OLG’s President and CEO. “The investments Gateway will make in the central region will enhance the gaming experience for customers and help OLG increase its contribution to the Province of Ontario.”

“We are very pleased to once again partner with OLG as the service provider in the Central Gaming Bundle. Gateway has become the standard for gaming and hospitality in Canada and the award of this bundle allows us to build on that leadership position,” said Tony Santo, Gateway’s Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to working with our new team members at Casino Rama Resort and OLG Slots at Georgian Downs.”

To OLG, the integrity of its procurement process is of the utmost importance.

In order to ensure an open and transparent process for all proponents, OLG has engaged the services of an impartial Fairness Monitor to advise throughout the process and provide oversight on the fairness of the procurement.

While Gateway will be responsible for the day-to-day gaming operations in the bundle, OLG will continue to:

  • Provide strategic oversight of the Central Gaming Bundle and Ontario gaming marketplace—including approvals related to material operational changes
  • Conduct and manage gaming in the bundle
  • Require compliance with applicable laws, regulations and standards
  • Be the owner of key player information
  • Require service providers to uphold the high standards of OLG’s Responsible Gambling program, including the self-exclusion program
  • Make Municipality Contribution Agreement payments to host communities.

Gateway will be required to retain employees for a period of no less than 12 months in their current position and geographic location. Unionized employees will transfer to the service provider under the terms and conditions of their current collective agreement. Gateway will also be required to provide eligible employees with benefits and a registered pension plan.

OLG has entered into a Transition and Asset Purchase Agreement with Gateway for the Central Gaming Bundle, which sets out the customary closing conditions to be satisfied for OLG and Gateway to enter into a Casino Operating and Services Agreement (COSA).

OLG expects that the service provider will take over day-to-day operations in summer 2018.

Gateway is one of the largest and most diversified gaming and entertainment companies in Canada. Operating in British Columbia, Edmonton and Ontario, Gateway has 6,000 employees and operates 25 gaming properties with 282 tables, over 9,500 slots, 68 restaurants and bars and 272 hotel rooms. As the selected service provider in Southwestern and Northern Ontario, Gateway will undertake two new planned builds in North Bay and Kenora. Gateway is undertaking an ambitious growth strategy to dramatically improve the customer experience and attract new customers. This includes the development of proprietary casino and food and beverage brands like Match Eatery & Public House and Atlas Steak + Fish. In 2017, Gateway celebrated 25 years in the business of gaming and entertainment in Canada. Further information is available at www.gatewaycasinos.com.

CELEBRATING $8 MILLION RAISED FOR TORONTO CHARITIES THROUGH CHARITABLE BINGO AND GAMING REVITALIZATION

TORONTO, ON – Ontario’s Charitable Bingo and Gaming Revitalization initiative is marking an important milestone in Toronto. More than $8 million has been raised and has benefited 53 charities which are part of the Dolphin Gaming Centre Association as a result of the revitalization of charitable bingo and gaming.

This program, which began over a decade ago, is delivered through a partnership between Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association (OCGA), the Commercial Gaming Association of Ontario (CGAO), local charities and gaming and bingo centre operators.

Dolphin Gaming Centre hosted the official celebration for the $8 million milestone. This location converted to a Charitable Gaming Centre in 2015. Today’s event was attended by Lorenzo Berardinetti, MPP Scarborough Southwest, Michelle Holland, Councillor Ward 35, City of Toronto, Rick Gray, Vice President of Charitable Gaming at OLG, and Lynn Cassidy, Executive Director of the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association.

“It is an amazing achievement, raising $8 million since late April 2015 to benefit local charities and non-profit organizations in our community,” said Lorenzo Berardinetti, MPP Scarborough Southwest. “The revitalization of Charitable Gaming has resulted in sustaining many essential services in the Toronto community.  I want to thank the charities, their volunteers and the gaming centre staff who have helped reach this impressive milestone.”

“The City of Toronto is very proud of our community partnership with Dolphin Gaming Centre and their 53 local charities and not-for-profits that have contributed $8 million for programs and services in our city in under three years,” said Councillor Michelle Holland. All of these funds remain in our community and benefit the people of Toronto in a way that has tremendous impact.”

“OLG is proud of the Charitable Bingo and Gaming Revitalization initiative and the role we play in providing sustainable revenue sources to the charities that serve the City of Toronto,” said Rick Gray, Vice President, Charitable Gaming at OLG.

“Today is celebrating the wonderful success of Charitable Gaming in Toronto,” said Lynn Cassidy, Executive Director of the OCGA. “This initiative is making a big difference to many local charities that provide important programs and services.”

Background on Charitable Gaming in Ontario

In the past 12 years, OLG has been working with the CGAO and the OCGA to revitalize the province’s Charitable Bingo and Gaming industry. By developing and introducing new products and technologies that have invigorated the traditional charitable gaming experience, more money has been generated for thousands of local charities across the province. The revitalization initiative is preserving and enhancing funding for charities across Ontario while creating economic benefits, including employment opportunities at local charitable gaming centres.

A pilot program was started in 2005 to test electronic versions of existing paper-based bingo games with six charity bingo centres in five communities in Ontario.

Following the success of this pilot project, a phased rollout of a new suite of electronic games was introduced to other charitable gaming sites in the province. This started in 2012.  The new charitable games offer customers more choice, and complement existing paper bingo games:

  • Electronic Bingo: Charitable Gaming Centres offer terminals with touch screens that allow players to touch the screen to dab the numbers and play along.
  • Play On Demand (POD): A collection of electronic games that can be played anytime, with great prizes to be won.
  • Tap Tix: The evolution of the classic Break Open Ticket features an interactive display screen on a ticket dispenser.

The new games allow Charitable Gaming Centres to offer more customer choice and appeal to a broader demographic, while providing a different gaming entertainment experience from traditional bingo.

In total, 31 Charitable Gaming Centres have raised more than $180 million in additional money for local charities and their communities.

As part of the revitalization OLG implemented its responsible gambling platform, PlaySmart, at all 31 Charitable Gaming Centres. The PlaySmart program and on-site PlaySmart Centres provide staff, volunteers, new and seasoned players with information on positive play and assistance to those who may express concerns about their gambling.  PlaySmart is the go-to place for facts, tools and advice.  Approximately every other month PlaySmart Centre staff visit the sites to answer questions, connect with players, and run interactive educational events.  PlaySmart Centres are operated and managed by the Responsible Gambling Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of problem gambling.

OLG is the Ontario government agency that delivers gaming entertainment in a socially responsible manner. OLG conducts and manages gaming facilities, the sale of province-wide lottery games, PlayOLG Internet gaming, the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres and is helping to build a more sustainable horse racing industry in Ontario.

OLG SIGNS CASINO OPERATING AND SERVICES AGREEMENT FOR GTA GAMING BUNDLE

TORONTO, ON – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has signed a 22-year Casino Operating and Services Agreement (COSA) with Ontario Gaming GTA LP (OGGLP) for the GTA Gaming Bundle.

The GTA Gaming Bundle is the fifth bundle to transition to a service provider in Ontario. It is the latest step in OLG’s land-based gaming modernization, which is creating the conditions for a vibrant gaming industry in the province, and bringing jobs and investment to communities across Ontario.

OGGLP now assumes responsibility for the day-to-day operations and assets of OLG Slots at Woodbine Racetrack, OLG Slots at Ajax Downs and Great Blue Heron Casino.

OGGLP is a Canadian partnership comprised of Great Canadian Gaming Corporation (“Great Canadian”) and Brookfield Business Partners LP (“Brookfield Business Partners”).

OLG has an internationally-recognized Responsible Gambling (RG) program and embeds its high standards for RG into the contracts it has with service providers.

OLG provides the provincial government with its largest source of non-tax revenue. Modernization helps OLG provide more money to Ontario for key government services.

Founded in 1982, Great Canadian Gaming Corporation is a BC based company that operates 22 gaming, entertainment and hospitality facilities in British Columbia, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Washington State. Fundamental to the company’s culture is its commitment to social responsibility. “PROUD of our people, our business, our community” is Great Canadian’s brand that unifies the company’s community, volunteering and social responsibility efforts. Under the PROUD program, Great Canadian annually invests over $2.5 million in our communities, and in 2016, over 1,500 charitable organizations were supported by Great Canadian. In each Canadian gaming jurisdiction, a significant portion of gross gaming revenue from gaming facilities is retained by our crown partners on behalf of their provincial government for the purpose of supporting programs like healthcare, education and social services.

 Brookfield Business Partners is a business services and industrial company focused on owning and operating high-quality businesses within Brookfield’s private equity group that benefit from barriers to entry and/or low production costs.

OLG MAKES THIRD-QUARTER PAYMENTS TO GAMING SITE HOST COMMUNITIES

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) today issued third-quarter (October to December, 2017) non-tax gaming revenue payments totalling $27,569,501 to 24 communities which currently host gaming facilities. To date, host communities have received more than $1.4 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.

“OLG’s host fees provide municipalities with important funds to enable investments in their communities,” said Charles Sousa, Ontario’s Minister of Finance. “People all across Ontario benefit from OLG revenues that support broader public services including health care and education.”

OLG MAKES SECOND-QUARTER PAYMENTS TO GAMING SITE HOST COMMUNITIES

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) today issued second-quarter (July to September 2017) non-tax gaming revenue payments totalling $34,741,373 to 24 communities which currently host OLG facilities. To date, host communities have received more than $1.4 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.

“Revenues from OLG gaming sites allow host municipalities to invest in and upgrade their infrastructure and support various community organizations and initiatives,” said Charles Sousa, Minister of Finance. “The people of Ontario benefit from these gaming revenues through provincial investment in key public services like health care and education.”

These payments are made under an equitable formula that determines the funds communities receive for hosting an OLG gaming facility and are based on an escalating scale of gaming revenue that is consistent across all sites in Ontario.

At approximately $2 billion annually, OLG provides the Ontario government with its largest source of non-tax revenue. Modernization will help OLG provide more money to Ontario for hospitals and other government priorities.

In fiscal 2017-2018, the province will allocate $115 million in gaming revenue to support charities through the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Every year, the Government of Ontario allocates funding to the province’s problem gambling program for research, treatment and prevention. The amount for fiscal 2017-2018 is $38 million.

OLG SIGNS 20-YEAR CASINO OPERATING AND SERVICES AGREEMENT FOR OTTAWA AREA GAMING BUNDLE

TORONTO, ON – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is continuing to build on the progress of its land-based gaming modernization by completing the transition of more than half of the gaming sites in the province to service providers.

Today, OLG signed a 20-year Casino Operating and Services Agreement (COSA) with HR Ottawa, LP for the Ottawa Area Gaming Bundle. HR Ottawa, LP (known as “Hard Rock Casino Ottawa”) now assumes responsibility for the day-to-day operations and assets of OLG Slots at Rideau Carleton Raceway.

The Hard Rock Casino Ottawa partnership consists of HR LP Investor Inc. (owned by Hard Rock International) and RCR Investor Inc. (owned by Rideau Carleton Raceway Holdings Limited).

Modernization allows OLG to retain strategic oversight of the Ontario gaming marketplace while creating the conditions for a vibrant gaming industry in the province. It will also bring new employment and investment to communities across Ontario.

This announcement builds on the news of OLG naming Ontario Gaming GTA LP as the service provider for the GTA Gaming Bundle last month and completing the transition of the North and Southwest Gaming Bundles to Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited in May of this year.

OLG has an internationally recognized Responsible Gambling (RG) program and embeds its high standards for RG into the contracts it has with service providers.

At more than $2.3 billion annually, OLG provides the provincial government with its largest source of non-tax revenue. Modernization helps OLG provide more money to Ontario for key government services.

With venues in 74 countries, including 178 cafes, 24 hotels and 10 casinos, Hard Rock International (HRI) is one of the most globally recognized companies. Beginning with an Eric Clapton guitar, Hard Rock owns the world’s greatest collection of music memorabilia, which is displayed at its locations around the globe.

HRI owns the global trademark for all Hard Rock brands. The company owns, operates and franchises Cafes in iconic cities including London, New York, San Francisco, Sydney and Dubai. HRI also owns, licenses and/or manages hotel/casino properties worldwide. Destinations include the company’s two most successful Hotel and Casino properties in Tampa and Hollywood, Fl., both owned and operated by HRI parent company The Seminole Tribe of Florida, as well as other exciting locations including Bali, Chicago, Cancun, Ibiza, Las Vegas, and San Diego. Upcoming new Hard Rock Cafe locations include Phnom Penh, Cairo, Cape Town and Chengdu. New Hard Rock hotel, casino or hotel-casino projects include Atlanta, Atlantic City, Berlin, Budapest, London, Los Cabos, Maldives, New York City, Davos, Ottawa, Dalian and Haikou in China.

Residents and tourists have long visited RCR to enjoy the thrill of watching standardbred races, attend events, and more recently, to play OLG slots. RCR remains committed to supporting the Province’s equestrian industry and live horse racing in Canada.

Backgrounder: Gaming Zones in the GTA Gaming Bundle

GAMING ZONE CURRENT OLG GAMING SITE HOST COMMUNITY
C2 OLG Slots at Woodbine Racetrack City of Toronto
C3 OLG Slots at Ajax Downs Town of Ajax
C8 Great Blue Heron Casino Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation

 

 

C2 Gaming Zone

OLG Slots at Woodbine Racetrack opened in 2000. The site has more than 3,000 electronic games and employs 744 people (as of June 16, 2017).

The City of Toronto received more than $15 million in 2015-16 for hosting the Woodbine facility.

Since March 2000, the City of Toronto has received more than $240 million in hosting fees.

OLG’s procurement process outlined a maximum of 5,000 electronic games and up to 2,400 live table gaming positions (up to 400 tables) for the C2 Gaming Zone. The site currently does not have any live table games.

On July 7, 2015, Toronto City Council passed a resolution granting conditional approval to expanded gaming—including the addition of table games—at Woodbine Racetrack, subject to the fulfilment of 21 conditions.

Council’s resolution includes a compulsory report back from the City Manager. The City Manager will prepare a report that assesses how the service provider has met, or will contractually commit to meeting, the City’s conditions. The City Manager will provide the report to City Council. Once Council receives the report, it will vote on whether to approve gaming expansion at Woodbine.

 

C3 Gaming Zone

OLG Slots at Ajax Downs opened in February 2006. The site currently has 800 electronic games* and employs 359 people (as of June 16, 2017).

The Town of Ajax received more than $7.3 million in 2015-16 for hosting the Ajax facility.

Since February of 2006, the Town of Ajax has received more than $61 million in hosting fees.

OLG’s procurement process outlined a maximum of 2,500 electronic games** and up to 1,200 live table game positions (up to 200 tables)** for the C3 Gaming Zone. The site currently does not have any live table games.

There are three willing host communities in the gaming zone: Ajax, Pickering and Whitby. Each municipality has passed a resolution indicating their interest in hosting a gaming site located within their borders.

*The Town of Ajax’s current by-law only allows for 800 slot machines at the site.  Although the Town has rezoned for the lift of that cap and the addition of table games, that decision is currently being appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board.

**For the C3 Gaming Zone and the C8 Gaming Zone there is an aggregate cap: between those two zones there can be no more than 3,100 slot machines and 1,560 live table game positions (up to 260 tables).

 

C8 Gaming Zone

he Great Blue Heron Casino opened in 1997 on the lands of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation (MSIFN). The site houses more than 500 slot machines, 60 live table games and employs 1100 people (as of June 16, 2017).

Great Blue Heron Casino is currently operated by a third party gaming operator, Casinos Austria International and its local partners.

In August 2016, OLG announced that a number of agreements had been reached between the Government of Ontario, OLG, MSIFN and other parties. Great Blue Heron Casino was then added to the GTA Gaming Bundle during the procurement process.

OLG’s procurement process outlined a maximum of 2,500 electronic games** and up to 1,200 live table game positions (up to 200 tables)** for the C8 Gaming Zone.

**For the C3 Gaming Zone and the C8 Gaming Zone there is an aggregate cap: between those two zones there can be no more than 3,100 slot machines and 1,560 live table game positions (approximately 260 tables).

Modernization of Land-Based Gaming

Modernization progress

OLG’s modernization of land-based gaming is nearing completion.

In the last 18 months, OLG has transferred the day-to-day operations of 11 gaming facilities to the private sector. Service providers now operate gaming in the East, North and Southwest and are investing in sites so that ongoing and new costs are borne by private capital, not public dollars.

Modernization is bringing new jobs and investment to communities across the province.

In May 2017, OLG announced HR Ottawa, LP as the service provider for the Ottawa Area Gaming Bundle. HR Ottawa LP’s vision includes a potential investment of more than $320 million to support major expansion of the site. If approved, the plan will create up to 2,000 permanent jobs and 1,900 construction jobs.

Last December, the service provider for the East Gaming Bundle, Ontario Gaming East Limited Partnership (OGELP), opened a new site, Shorelines Casino Belleville. OGELP invested $40 million in new capital in the project, which created 300 jobs. OLG made its first payment under the Municipality Contribution Agreement to the City of Belleville for $575,000 last April. These payments will continue on a quarterly basis as long as gaming remains in Belleville.

In the Southwest Gaming Bundle, the service provider, Gateway Casinos and Entertainment Limited recently announced a $26 million capital refresh of an existing casino in Point Edward.

By the end of 2018, the remaining Gaming Bundles will be awarded.

With returns of more than $2 billion every year, OLG provides the Ontario government with its largest source of non-tax revenue to fund provincial priorities such as health care. These returns will grow under modernization to nearly $3 billion annually.

Modernization will deliver more jobs, more investment in communities, and more revenue to the Province.

Service Provider for the GTA Gaming Bundle

OLG is continuing its procurement process to modernize gaming in Ontario by selecting Ontario Gaming GTA LP (OGGLP) as the service provider for the GTA Gaming Bundle.

OLG has entered into a Transition and Asset Purchase Agreement with OGGLP, which sets out the customary closing conditions to be satisfied for OLG and OGGLP to enter into 22-year Casino Operating and Services Agreement (COSA) for the GTA Gaming Bundle.

Under the COSA, OGGLP will take over day-to-day operations of the gaming sites in the bundles.

What is the Casino Operating and Services Agreement?

Currently, OLG and OGGLP are operating under a temporary transitional agreement that allows the two parties to work together to share knowledge and help position OGGLP for success. This transition period is expected to end in early 2018.

Once the transition is complete, OLG and OGGLP will sign the Casino Operating and Services Agreement (COSA). This agreement allows OGGLP to assume responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the sites.

OGGLP is the service provider for the GTA bundle, subject to customary closing conditions and pending the execution of the COSA.

What are Gaming Zones?

In order to effectively manage gaming in Ontario, OLG identified Gaming Zones where existing or new gaming facilities would be permitted, subject to required approvals, including the provincial government.

Gaming Zones are geographic areas where a single gaming facility may be located. The location and design of these Gaming Zones is intended to ensure a sustainable and efficient gaming market in Ontario.

The boundaries of Gaming Zones across the province were determined by a gravity model—an analytic tool commonly used for modeling supply and demand within a given geographic area. The model looked at a number of factors to determine where there is customer demand for a gaming facility, including:

  • Proximity of a Gaming Zone relative to other Gaming Zones and gaming facilities
  • Proximity of a Gaming Zone to current and potential customers
  • Distance a customer is willing to travel to reach a gaming site

Within each Gaming Zone, service providers will assume day-to-day operations for an existing facility and may propose expand the site, establish a new facility if one does not currently exist, or relocate the existing facility within the boundaries of the Gaming Zone, all subject to approvals.

Only one gaming facility is permitted within each Gaming Zone.

What are Gaming Bundles?

To enable OLG to more effectively manage gaming in Ontario, OLG grouped some Gaming Zones into Gaming Bundles—each representing a separate bidding opportunity.

Gaming Bundles are intended to create opportunities for service providers to be more efficient by operating multiple facilities in a given region.

Communities and OLG’s Modernization

Municipal and community choice is an important element of OLG’s modernization. OLG will only locate gaming facilities where there is support to do so from the municipal Council or the First Nation Band Council, as applicable. OLG respects decisions of municipalities or First Nation Band Councils regarding hosting a new gaming site or relocating a gaming site, as well as adding table games to a site that currently has none.

When it comes to gaming facilities, OLG’s approach to potential and current host municipalities and host reserves across Ontario has been consistent.

The municipal Council or First Nations Band Council must pass a resolution confirming their interest in hosting a gaming facility.

Where a municipal Council or First Nations Band Council has included conditions as part of its resolution for gaming in its community, such as restrictions on the movement or expansion of a gaming site, OLG has ensured that proponents are aware of such conditions during the RFP phase of the procurement process.

The municipal Council or the First Nations Band Council then works with the selected service provider to determine the location of a new gaming site, if one is proposed and permitted.

Adding table games at a gaming site that currently has none, relocating a current gaming site or building a new gaming site can only occur where there is municipal Council or Band Council consent. Also, a viable business case must be put forth by the service provider and subsequently approved by OLG.

Any new gaming site, introduction of table games at a gaming site that currently has none, or proposed relocation of an existing gaming site is subject to final approval from the Ontario government.

Leading Responsible Gambling Program

OLG will continue to work within the Province’s overall problem gambling strategy to contribute to the prevention and mitigation of problem gambling through its Responsible Gambling program, which was ranked number one in the world by the World Lottery Association in 2014.

OLG will also require service providers to follow the Responsible Gambling policies and program that OLG has developed.

Horse Racing

OLG is working with the horse racing industry and the Ontario government to build the foundation for a more sustainable industry in Ontario.

OLG is supporting the horse racing industry by:

  • Helping the industry become self-governing
  • Providing responsible gambling expertise
  • Providing marketing strategy expertise
  • Measuring key performance indicators to help the industry make fact-based decisions
  • Providing advice to the Province of Ontario regarding horseracing

In addition, OLG is distributing around $93 million in funding from the Government of Ontario to racetracks to support close to 950 race dates in 2017-18.

OLG is also continuing to work with the Ontario government and the industry on a funding arrangement that will help to build a sustainable future for horse racing in Ontario.

OLG’s Conduct and Manage Role

OLG will continue its role in the conduct and management of land-based gaming in Ontario.

To fulfill this role, OLG will retain control over gaming, but will expect service providers to deliver many of the services related to the day-to-day operation of gaming.

OLG MAKES FIRST-QUARTER PAYMENTS TO GAMING SITE HOST COMMUNITIES

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) today issued first-quarter (April to June, 2017) non-tax gaming revenue payments totalling $40,149,649 to 24 communities which currently host OLG facilities. To date, host communities have received more than $1.37 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.

“OLG gaming revenue provides essential funding to host communities which offers greater ability to invest in infrastructure projects as well as important local programs and services that benefit families,” said Charles Sousa, Ontario’s Minister of Finance. “These funds directly benefit Ontario’s critical public services such as health care and education, and local development.”

These payments are made under an equitable formula that determines the funds communities receive for hosting an OLG gaming facility and are based on an escalating scale of gaming revenue that is consistent across all sites in Ontario.

At approximately $2 billion annually, OLG provides the Ontario government with its largest source of non-tax revenue. Modernization will help OLG provide more money to Ontario for hospitals and other government priorities.

In fiscal 2017-2018, the province will allocate $115 million in gaming revenue to support charities through the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Every year, the Government of Ontario allocates funding to the province’s problem gambling program for research, treatment and prevention. The amount for fiscal 2017-2018 is $38 million.

OLG is the Ontario government agency that delivers gaming entertainment in a socially responsible manner. OLG conducts and manages gaming facilities, the sale of province-wide lottery games, PlayOLG Internet gaming, the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres and is helping to build a more sustainable horse racing industry in Ontario. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $44 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. These payments to the province support the operation of hospitals, amateur sport through the Quest for Gold program, local and provincial charities and problem gambling prevention, treatment and research.

CELEBRATING $2.3 MILLION RAISED FOR TIMMINS CHARITIES THROUGH CHARITABLE BINGO AND GAMING REVITALIZATION

TIMMINS, ON – Ontario’s Charitable Bingo and Gaming Revitalization initiative is marking an important milestone in Timmins. More than $2.3 million has been raised and has benefited the 67 charities which are part of the Timmins Charitable Gaming Association as a result of the revitalization of charitable bingo and gaming.

This program, which began over a decade ago, is delivered through a partnership between Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association (OCGA), the Commercial Gaming Association of Ontario (CGAO), local charities and gaming and bingo centre operators.

Timmins Gaming Centre hosted the official celebration for the $2.3 million milestone, as this location converted to a Charitable Gaming Centre in 2014. Today’s event was attended by Councillor Michael Doody, City of Timmins, Valerie Braun, Director, Charitable Gaming at OLG, Lynn Cassidy, Executive Director of the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association and Rick Morgan, President, Timmins Charitable Gaming Association.

“I am impressed with the work that has been done locally through the revitalization of Charitable Gaming,” said Michael Doody, Councillor. “It is quite an achievement to raise $2.3million to benefit local charities and non-profit organizations within our community. On behalf of the City of Timmins, I want to commend the staff at Timmins Gaming Centre, OLG, and most importantly, the many charities and their volunteers who have helped reach this milestone and continue to make the City of Timmins a great community.”

“OLG is proud of the Charitable Bingo and Gaming Revitalization initiative and the role we play in providing sustainable revenue sources to the charities that serve the City of Timmins,” said Valerie Braun, Director of Charitable Gaming at OLG.

“Today is celebrating the wonderful success of Charitable Gaming in Timmins,” said Lynn Cassidy, Executive Director of the OCGA. “This initiative is making a big difference to many local charities that provide important programs and services.”
 

Background on Charitable Gaming in Ontario

In the past 10 years, OLG has been working with the CGAO and the OCGA to revitalize the province’s Charitable Bingo and Gaming industry. By developing and introducing new products and technologies that have invigorated the traditional charitable gaming experience, more money has been generated for thousands of local charities across the province. The revitalization initiative is preserving and enhancing funding for charities across Ontario while creating economic benefits, including employment opportunities at local charitable gaming centres.

A pilot program was started in 2005 to test electronic versions of existing paper-based bingo games with six charity bingo centres in five communities in Ontario.

Following the success of this pilot project, a phased rollout of a new suite of electronic games was introduced to other charitable gaming sites in the province. This started in 2012.  The new charitable games offer customers more choice, and complement existing paper bingo games:

  • Electronic Bingo: Charitable Gaming Centres offer terminals with touch screens that allow players to touch the screen to dab the numbers and play along.
  • Play On Demand (POD): A collection of electronic games that can be played anytime, with great prizes to be won.
  • Tap Tix: The evolution of the classic Break Open Ticket features an interactive display screen on a ticket dispenser.

The new games allow Charitable Gaming Centres to offer more customer choice and appeal to a broader demographic, while providing a different gaming entertainment experience from traditional bingo.

In total, 31 Charitable Gaming Centres have raised more than $155 million in additional money for local charities and their communities.

As part of the revitalization, OLG assisted in introducing Responsible Gambling Resource Centres (RGRC’s) at all of the 31 Charitable Gaming Centres.  The RGRC’s, managed by the Responsible Gambling Council of Ontario, offer effective educational tools and resources to build awareness and understanding of the risks associated with, and strategies to prevent, problem gambling.

Each RGRC has information available on the following topics:

  • Safer play strategies
  • Gambling myths and facts
  • Community agencies that support people with gambling concerns
