OLG issues RFPs for North and Southwest Gaming Bundles

OLG is continuing its procurement process for land-based gaming by issuing Request for Proposal (RFP) documents to pre-qualified proponents selected to bid on the North and Southwest Gaming Bundles. The RFPs will enable OLG to select a service provider to run certain day-to-day gaming operations for each Gaming Bundle. The North Gaming Bundle has five gaming zones. Three gaming zones are currently served by OLG gaming sites: OLG Casino Thunder Bay, OLG Slots at Sudbury Downs and OLG Casino Sault Ste. Marie. There is the potential for a new gaming site in each of the other two zones, one in North Bay and one in the Kenora area. The Southwest Gaming Bundle has six gaming zones, each currently served by an OLG gaming facility:

  • OLG Slots at Western Fair District
  • OLG Slots at Clinton Raceway
  • OLG Slots at Dresden Raceway
  • OLG Slots at Hanover Raceway
  • OLG Slots at Woodstock Raceway
  • OLG Casino Point Edward
To OLG, the integrity of the procurement process is of the utmost importance. Public procurements involve information of a commercially sensitive nature. As a result, details of the RFP documents and names of pre-qualified proponents will not be released while the process is ongoing. Additionally, there will be no further communication about the RFPs for these bundles until service providers are announced. OLG expects to announce the successful service providers in early 2017.
