BCLC Awards New Contract for Digital Sports-Betting Services to Scientific Games



BCLC has awarded Scientific Games Corporation a new multi-year contract for Managed Trading Services for digital sports-betting services on British Columbia’s only regulated online gambling website, PlayNow.com.

BCLC and Scientific Games have a longstanding relationship across multiple parts of BCLC’s business, and Scientific Games is the core platform supplier for PlayNow.com.

Based in Las Vegas, Scientific Games is a world leader in entertainment offering dynamic games, systems and services for casino, lottery, social gaming, online gaming and sports betting.

BCLC awarded the contract in alignment with applicable public-sector procurement trade agreements. As sports events around the world begin to return to normal, Scientific Games will enhance PlayNow.com to offer a full suite of parlayed sports and novelty bets throughout the year with dynamic, live odds during both pre-match and in-play.

Parlayed sports betting, in which players must wager on a minimum of two different events at one time, is currently the only legal form of sports betting in Canada. BCLC supports efforts to legalize single-event betting in Canada so that B.C. players can make single-event sports wagers in a secure, regulated environment.

Through PlayNow.com, BCLC offers socially responsible gambling entertainment while generating income to benefit all British Columbians. Remember, play for fun, not to make money. For more information, visit GameSense.com.
