Unless provided by government sources, it is illegal to use services for gambling as stated clearly in Canada’s gambling laws. Due to the fact that the laws are not properly enforced, Canadians seem to disregard it but the possibility for this to change may occur soon. In order to provide a solution for central gaming system in the entire large province, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) asked for the help of Bally Technologies, a Las Vegas based solutions and online casino provider. The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s compliance and alignment to the responsibilities of “conduct and manage” under Canada’s current criminal code will be allowed through Bally Technologies. It was founded in the year 1932 and ever since provided the gaming industry worldwide with innovative iGaming solutions, mobile solutions, systems, table game products, and games that provide efficiency in operations and drive more revenues to gaming operators.
It is the responsibility of OLG to oversee the gaming facilities and lottery games province-wide as a provincial agency. A total of almost $38 billion was provided to the people of Ontario and to the province since OLG was established in 1975. The annual payments of OLG to the province funded the treatment and prevention of gambling problem, research, education, and healthcare. OLG will be able to implement more enhanced tools for responsible gambling to different facilities for casino games and operations within the province through their deal with Bally Technologies.
Robert Parente, Bally’s North American sales and corporate marketing senior vice-president, said that they are honored to expand and continue their partnership to provide OLG with the leading technologies in gaming systems in the entire province. He also added that the agreement demonstrated their unending commitment to answer the needs of the gaming market in Canada, and they are excited to work with and help OLG with their modernization. The whole process may take some extra time for OLG’s internet betting to be implemented in the province. They are hoping that Bally would be able to find a workable and efficient solution to speed things up and make things work successfully.
