Before it’s launch, Ontario is giving a preview for its highly anticipated and long-awaited online gaming site within weeks.
The OLG issued an invitation to 53,000 loyal customers Tuesday, offering them a sneak peak at PlayOLG.ca before it opens to the public.
The gaming site will be open to the public within weeks.
Gamers will be able to place bets on a variety of video slot games, blackjack, baccarat and roulette.
The site will also allow Ontarians to buy Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max tickets online.
Unfortunately for poker players, at this time, you’ll have to settle for single player games.
OLG says sports games and bingo are also possible additions in the future.
The OLG estimates that 500,000 Ontario residents spend $400 million-$500 million a year on unregulated out-of-province Internet gambling, Bitoni said.
This will make gambling accessible to basically everyone with an Internet connection – is this a good idea? Do you think there will be an increase in gambling addictions now that gambling will be more accessible?
