OLG or the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation is now providing slots, video poker along with lotteries to play online or with your smartphone. Also OLG is soon looking forward to open the door for other more off beat types of gambling like novelty betting and gambling on eSports with many video game competitions. According to OLG spokesperson Tony Bitonti in the last few years, eSports and betting on it, has surged in popularity and there are hundreds of eSport tournaments events held each year, many in Ontario. Explaining about novelty betting he said it’s placing a bet on an outcome that’s not part of a sports or athletic event. For example, the winner of an election or the gender of a baby about to be born to royalty. The expansion, which is largely focused on sports betting, will also allow people to place live bets during games, something currently unavailable through OLG.
OLG sports offering will include new products that will provide more betting options on a wider variety of events, including all major North American sports leagues and major international sports and that the online expansion coincides with OLG’s plan to replace and update retail lottery terminals across the province. The new terminals will allow OLG to considerably improve the range of product offerings through its retail channel, including a substantially improved sports betting product which would start by fall of 2018.
The expansion would see Ontario join four other Canadian jurisdictions which currently have online sports, eSports and novelty betting — Atlantic Canada, British Columbia, Quebec and Manitoba.
In British Columbia and Manitoba, players can choose from dozens of novelty bets at those province’s online portals. The subjects range from predicting a reason for a possible Trump impeachment to how much the upcoming Star Wars film will gross at the box office.
In Atlantic Canada, the Atlantic Lottery Corporation has introduced an app for mobile devices that allows users to access their games and receive custom alerts.
