TORONTO, ON – Today, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) released a Request for Pre-Qualification (RFPQ) to pre-qualify potential service providers to replace and update the existing Lottery terminals and electronic network in retail stores.
“Replacing and updating the Lottery terminals in retail stores will improve the ways we connect with adult customers, within our PlaySmart program,” said Greg McKenzie, OLG’s Chief Operating Officer. “This will help modernize the Lottery business and will ensure our technology is responsive to changing customer expectations.”
New Lottery terminals will enhance functionality for retailers and reduce maintenance costs. In addition to replacing and updating the terminals, the selected service provider will also be responsible for integrating and maintaining the new terminals and managing the corresponding telecommunications network.
OLG will also add retailers to its network, allowing it to reach more customers across the province in a responsible way. It expects to release the Lottery terminal RFP in spring 2017.
At more than $2.2 billion annually, OLG provides the Ontario government with its largest source of non-tax revenue.
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 leading the integration of horse racing into the provincial gaming strategy. 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.
