BCLC taps Scientific Games for multi-year contract
June 18, 2020
A multi-year contract for managed trading services for digital sports betting on PlayNow.com has been awarded by BCLC to Scientific Games. This contract makes Scientific Games the core platform supplier for British Columbia’s only regulated online gaming site.
BCLC awarded the contract in alignment with applicable public-sector procurement trade agreements. As sports events around the world begin to return to normal, Scientific Games will enhance PlayNow.com to offer a full suite of parlayed sports and novelty bets throughout the year with dynamic, live odds during both pre-match and in-play.
Parlayed sports betting, in which players must wager on a minimum of two different events at one time, is currently the only legal form of sports betting in Canada. BCLC supports efforts to legalize single-event betting in Canada so that B.C. players can make single-event sports wagers in a secure, regulated environment.
