Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) announced that Ontario's casino service providers are moving forward with the introduction of sportsbooks at select casinos across the province, in compliance with provincial regulations.

"We are proud to have worked closely with the gaming industry and our partners in the Ontario government on this next phase of growth in Ontario's gaming market," said Duncan Hannay, President and CEO of OLG. "Sportsbooks in casinos will offer a diverse and integrated entertainment experience for players, give our service providers a stake in the sports gaming market, and bring more jobs and economic benefits to host communities."

"I'd like to congratulate OLG for partnering with Ontario's gaming operators to bring sportsbooks to casinos," said Paul Burns, President and CEO of the Canadian Gaming Association. "This ongoing collaboration will result in new and expanded options for sports betting – including some first-of-their-kind sportsbooks in Canada – which will attract more people to visit Ontario's casinos and encourage continued growth across the industry."



OLG prioritizes player health and works to prevent and mitigate harm from problem gambling as we deliver all our products and services. OLG's award-winning responsible gambling program, PlaySmart, will be incorporated into all casino-based sportsbook offerings. PlaySmart provides players access to award-winning tools and supports to help them make informed decisions and create healthy play habits. 

Like all OLG products, the proceeds that OLG generates through casino sportsbooks will be reinvested into provincial priorities to improve the quality of life for all Ontarians.
