Leading the Way in Online Gambling
In 2010, BCLC began offering online casino games to players and in February 2011, together with Loto-Québec, we began offering peer to peer poker on a shared network.
In April 2012, BCLC set off on a new course for its online business, partnering with Manitoba Lotteries to provide online gambling to Manitobans. Manitoba Lotteries identified BCLC's business model as the best choice for regulated online gambling in its province.
We will provide the site design, development and testing services and will manage most aspects of the website.
Both partners benefit from economies of scale and a larger player base for games such as poker. This collaboration increases both provinces' ability to combat illegal, off-shore websites.
Our collaboration with Manitoba Lotteries is our first step in what is a new line of business for BCLC. We will continue to look at partnering with other jurisdictions in Canada and beyond to leverage economies-of-scale and provide a world class entertainment option that is safe and secure.
