OLG selects vendor for its iGaming initiative

When OLG’s Internet Gaming initiative is launched in late 2013, PlayOLG.ca will be the only safe, lawful and regulated online gaming site available in Ontario. OLG has taken another important step towards bringing iGaming to Ontario with the selection of a vendor to provide a Player Account Management System for the web site and support for online casino table games and slots. SPIELO G2 was selected through a fair and competitive procurement process, which OLG began in December 2011. Currently, when people visit PlayOLG.ca, they will find general information on OLG’s iGaming and Responsible Gambling program. In fall 2013, PlayOLG.ca will feature fun and exciting games, along with comprehensive Responsible Gambling features. PlayOLG.ca will also offer increased player protections, secure transactions and data privacy, and will require players to register to play to protect underage users from accessing the site. Ontarians will be offered a full range of online gaming options, including: 

  • Online lottery tickets (National lotto games like LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49, Ontario lotteries like ONTARIO 49 and PICK- 3, etc., and Quick Play lottery games)
  • Video Poker
  • Online Slots
  • Casino-style table games 
OLG will be introducing additional iGaming products in phases. Future launches will include online poker, bingo, and sports wagering.  iGaming is part of OLG’s modernization of lottery and gaming in Ontario. Within five years of operation, PlayOLG.ca is estimated to deliver $375-million or more in net cumulative profit to the Province—revenue that supports important priorities like health care and community infrastructure.
