IGT Launches Electronic Bingo in Ontario

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation becomes the first Canadian operator to feature brand-new electronic bingo content from world-class software developer IGT.

International Game Technology, or IGT, is recognized as one of the leaders in the gaming industry and its endless pursuit of new gaming opportunities. The latest development from the company has brought it to the lottery field in Canada. Thanks to its partnership with OLG, International Game Technology is striving to present electronic bingo opportunities to the wide audience and to diversify the opportunities in Canada's lottery field.

Enthusiasts of the Canadian lottery will now have the opportunity to indulge in premium e-bingo action that will be offered by none other than IGT. Through the vast selection of gaming locations operated by OLG, bingo enthusiasts throughout the state of Ontario can now test their luck at any of the 12 charitable gaming venues that will feature an assortment of e-bingo titles. What's even more impressive is that OLG will eventually add its bingo offerings to a wide range of Ontario online casinos in the near future to make it more convenient for players.

Canadians Ready to Welcome New Offerings

Some of the e-bingo offerings that will certainly attract the attention of players across the state of Ontario are a brilliant selection of popular games, including Pharaoh's Legacy, Golden Rooster, and Bengal Eyes to mention but a few. They will start operating in the 12 locations which will also offer other exciting games, such as Play On Demand, TapTix electronic break-open tickets, and eBingo.

IGT's decision to further develop in the Ontario market, and to claim a solid foundation in the bingo sector, has been carefully thought out as the regulations that oversee the lottery field have authorized that lottery prizes will not be subject to taxation. This means that players will be able to receive the full amount when winnings are claimed. The charitable nature behind this gaming activity is another positive aspect that will drive players to give it a try.

In addition, players are frequently drawn to the game selection provided by OLG which guarantees that the generated profits are reinvested to further improve the region and benefit the community. Even the horse racing industry will be able to benefit from the operation provided by OLG.

Future Expansion Projected

IGT is already accustomed to the lottery in Canada as it offers its platform for online ticket purchases which facilitates the entire process. It also supervises the legal poker operation in the country which is going to be a perfect fit when electronic bingo is introduced to Ontario. Prior to this new development, IGT specialized in providing interactive gaming systems to several platforms.

To successfully make the entire experience even more rewarding and personalized, International Gaming Technology will aim to target its audience with incredible titles that are guaranteed to attract players from across the state. Once the electronic bingo operation is established in Ontario, the company is set to target other provinces in Canada which will bring the exciting e-bingo experience closer to players in the country.

It's also worth mentioning that IGT recently teamed up with NetEnt casino software to simplify future operation in partnership with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation. His collaboration guaranteed the implementation and smooth transition of NetEnt's diverse portfolio. Within the next few months, IGT's footprint is definitely going to expand across Canada.
