iGaming Business – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is set to commence a soft launch of its new online gaming website PlayOLG.

The short-term soft launch will be open to eligible members of OLG’s Winner’s Circle Rewards programme before being made available to legal-aged players in Ontario during the coming weeks.

The new website will see OLG join British Columbia, Manitoba, Quebec and all of the Atlantic Provinces in offering a provincially registered internet gaming entertainment service.

Players in Ontario will be able to access a range of interactive casino-style games such as blackjack, roulette and baccarat as well as a range of slots.

In addition, players will be able to use the site to purchase Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max tickets as well as Encore.

As part of OLG’s responsible gambling commitment, the website will also have a number of other features designed to safeguard players.
