PlayOLG is the new internet gaming (or “iGaming”) website operated by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation. Only invited members of OLG’s Winner’s Circle rewards program will be invited to play initially, but it is expected to be available to all legal-aged Ontarians in the New Year. The site includes interactive casino-style games including slots and table games like Blackjack, Baccarat, Single-player Poker, and Roulette, as well as the ability to purchase Lotto 6/49 and LottoMAX lottery tickets online.
As the regulator of gaming (including internet gaming) in Ontario, the AGCO is responsible for maintaining a regulatory framework that adheres to the Gaming Control Act, 1992. The Registrar’s Standards for Gaming outlines this framework and elaborates on the new standards-based regulatory model that ensures that responsible gambling standards are met, the integrity of gaming is upheld, and those who develop and operate internet gaming conduct themselves competently with honesty and integrity.
