TORONTO, ON – Today, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) released a Request for proposals (RFP) to proponents selected to bid on replacing and updating OLG’s existing Lottery terminals and network in retail stores.
Replacing and updating Lottery terminals is part of OLG’s plan to improve the ways it connects with customers and ensure its technology is responsive to their changing expectations.
New Lottery terminals will provide a better retail experience for customers as well as enhance functionality for retailers. OLG will also add retailers to its network, allowing it to reach more people across the province in a responsible way.
In addition to replacing and updating the terminals, the selected service provider will also be responsible for maintaining the new terminals and managing the corresponding telecommunications network.
OLG expects to select a service provider in early 2018.
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 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.
All for Here – 100 per cent of OLG’s proceeds are invested in Ontario
