TORONTO, ON – Today, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to select a service provider to enhance and expand sports betting in Ontario.
OLG’s new sports offering is a key part of its vision to develop world class gaming entertainment for Ontario. New technology will bring innovation and variety to new sports products that will be available at retail locations, as well as online and through mobile devices.
Responsible Gambling (RG) is a priority for OLG. The new sports offering will include PlaySmart content for both online and retail channels and RG tools and resources will be available to online customers.
Ontario will be joining four other Canadian jurisdictions that offer sports products online and on mobile platforms, as well as at retail locations: Atlantic Canada, Quebec, Manitoba and British Columbia.
OLG expects to select a service provider for a sports betting solution in fall 2018.
At more than $2.3 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 $47 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
