Ontario Waiting For More Online Gambling Proposals

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has extended its original deadline for online gambling proposals after only three companies submissions were made.

The original deadline was set to be February 3rd, however only Amaya Gaming, Openbet and GTechG2 had submitted bids to Canada's most populous province. Reportedly nine other gambling software suppliers are interested in trying to secure the contract, but were unable to complete their bids on time.

As of right now the new deadline has not been released, but it is likely that the delay will push internet gambling off to a later date. Officials would like to launch a solution by the end of the year, but it is not known whether or not this is a realistic expectation.
