OLG has cancelled the current Request for Proposals for Lottery in favour of a revised modernization approach.
Through its Lottery modernization, OLG has been seeking a way, in partnership with the private sector, to unlock the opportunity to create greater value for Ontario. After a period of due diligence and consultation with globally-experienced proponents, OLG has determined that the selection of a single service provider would not provide sufficient value for the Province.
Today, OLG’s Lottery business performs well; 2015-16 sales were a record $3.8 billion. However, in order to unlock the full potential of the business, OLG’s approach to Lottery modernization is evolving. Under a revised approach, OLG will seek to enhance its capabilities in technology and innovation through partnerships with the private sector.
In the meantime, it is business as usual. OLG will continue to operate the Lottery business. Customers and retailers will see no disruption in service. The modernization of land-based gaming continues.
