Bede Gaming Appointed OLG’s Digital Partner

Harry Coulter | 18 Sep 2018

Bede Gaming and OLGUK-based gaming platform supplier Bede Gaming, has been selected as the digital platform supplier of choice for the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG). The OLG is one of the largest lotteries, and is owned by the Government of Ontario, Canada.

The OLG recently launched a large-scale procurement process in order to appoint a number of service providers for various tasks to be performed according to the provisions of various contracts. The procurement process was initiated in order for a large-scale upgrade of various systems within the company. Going forward, they will be tasked with the upgrade and transformation of the OLG’s current digital platform. The development of new products, the implementation of a streamlined digital offering, and a general quality upgrade, are all part of the responsibility now resting on Bede Gaming’s capable shoulders.

New Playing Fields For Bede

A spokesperson for Bede Gaming has said that the new transformed digital platform is expected to be up and running by the time 2020 rolls around, and that the company is more than up to the task of making it happen in good time. The firm also said that its appointment by a body the size and reputation of the OLG is a testament to its own capabilities as a company, as well as the overall strength of its digital platform product.

The appointment marks the company’s entry not only into the North American market, but also into the Lottery sector.

A Digital Platform Transformation

One of the biggest motivators for having awarded the contract to Bede Gaming, appears to be the superb nature of its Responsible Gambling (RG) technology. RG will make provision for the setting of very particular limits by players, including self-exclusion registrations and a host of other services. In terms of the promotion of responsible gambling, Bede Gaming’s RG product towers head and shoulders above many similar products in the casino and online casino industries.

OLG’s Chief Operating Officer, Greg McKenzie, referred to the new appointment as the brand’s endeavour to fully transform its digital operations and player platform. McKenzie said that they were looking forward to establishing a firm relationship with the service provider.
