“OLG will offer the only safe, lawful and regulated internet gaming option in Ontario. The move into internet gaming is an exciting step in OLG’s modernization,” said Rod Phillips, President and CEO of OLG.
PlayOLG.ca will be rolled out in phases. Phase 1 will include the introduction of lottery and gaming products, while later phases will include bingo, sports wagering, online poker, and other products. As the primary service provider, SPIELO G2 will also provide a player account management system that will implement a strong online Responsible Gambling program and offer increased player protection, secure transaction and data privacy. This system will provide an age-verification requirement and customers will have the ability to manage their online play with time and money limits, and the option to take breaks from play.
"We’re pleased to have an experienced company on board to help OLG provide an interactive gaming experience that will be a secure option, regulated by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario,” added Phillips.
