TORONTO – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (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 one 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:
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 the selected service providers are announced. OLG expects to announce the successful service providers in early 2017.
OLG will release the RFPs for remaining Gaming Bundles in the coming months.
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 key government services, including health care and education.
OLG is a provincial agency responsible for gaming facilities, the sale of province-wide lottery games, the PlayOLG Internet gaming website and the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres across the province. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $42 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. OLG’s annual payments to the province have helped support the operation of hospitals; prevention, treatment and research of problem gambling; amateur sport through the Quest for Gold program; and local and provincial charities. OLG was a Premier Sponsor of the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am / Parapan Am Games.
