PlayOLG Canadian Online Casino
Ontario was one of the last provinces – and certainly the most populous – to take casino gaming online. Ontario Lotteries and Gaming Corporation (OLG) officials had debated the move for years, trying to decide whether the investment would bear fruit. But when other provincial Corporations started to report success and significant revenues from their own Canadian online casinos the OLG decided to join the wave. In January 2015 OLG launched the PlayOLG Canadian online casino to provide local gamers with an online venue where they could enjoy superior gambling entertainment.
OLG has been online since 2012, offering lottery players the ability to buy tickets directly through the OLG online site. Now the site has expanded, bringing the most popular casino games to Ontario residents' PC screens. The Play OLG website is user-friendly and simple to navigate so gamers enjoy opportunity to indulge in their favorite gaming activities at their convenience. At this time, the PlayOLG site is only available for PC players, though a mobile site might be launched in the future.
OLG is the Gaming and Lotteries Corporation that is charged by the Ontario provincial government with operating all gambling facilities in Ontario. These facilities include brick-and-mortar casinos, race tracks, gambling centres (including those located in First Nation communities) and bingo halls. OLG also operates the Ontario lottery and the OLG Play online gambling website.
Before opening the OLG online casino, OLG surveyed other Canadian provinces and discovered that a significant number of gamers who had been conducting their online gaming via offshore sites were pleased to move their gaming pursuits to the online casinos in Canada when given the chance. They also discovered that millions of dollars were being spent by Ontario residents at offshore casinos. When these points were reviewed it was decided that, to better serve Ontario residents, OLG would establish the OLG casino online.
