Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation Selects Bede

Bede Gaming, a leading supplier of software to the online gaming industry, is proud to announce it has been selected as the new digital platform supplier by the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation (OLG).

OLG, one of the world’s largest lotteries, selected the digital platform specialists following a fair, open, and transparent procurement process, with a view to transforming the corporation’s digital offering, bringing new products and player experiences to adult Ontarians. The agreement marks Bede’s entry into both the North American and Lottery markets and serves as a testament to the strength of the platform. Bede expects OLG’s new platform to be in place in early 2020.

Bede’s Responsible Gambling (RG) technology will provide the lottery operator with world-leading options to help manage RG in real-time and give players the ability to set fine-grained limits, self-exclusions, and other supports tailored to their needs. These RG tools will comply with requirements of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario and uphold OLG’s track record as a world-class responsible operator.

OLG is the third operator to select Bede this year following the signing in early 2018 of Sun International and LeoVegas, who acquired Bede-powered Rocket X.

Michael Brady, Co-Founder, Bede Gaming, said, “I’m absolutely delighted to welcome OLG to Bede and am extremely proud of the team effort involved in bringing this agreement to fruition. It is a huge recognition of the strength of our offering and firm proof of our status as a leading gaming platform in the industry. This is a landmark contract win for Bede and I am sure will be the start of a long and successful relationship with one of the most respected names in the worldwide lottery sector. We are looking forward to supporting OLG in achieving digital excellence.”

Greg McKenzie, OLG’s Chief Operating Officer, added, “We are investing in digital technology and product solutions to improve the customer experience and ensure we are responsive to changing customer expectations. The platform Bede will provide will be a central point of integration for OLG’s products and channels. We are looking forward to developing our relationship with Bede as OLG continues its digital transformation.”

Scientific Games Corporation announced at an event in Panama City, Florida that the Company is donating $100,000 to disaster relief efforts following Hurricane Michael in the Florida Panhandle. Half of the donation will support the Bay Law Enforcement Assistance Foundation and the other half will support the Florida Disaster Fund. Scientific Games is a global leader in the gaming and lottery industries, and is a major business partner with the Florida Lottery since the Lottery’s inception in 1988.

Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis said, “As a Bay County resident myself, it brings tears to my eyes to see folks giving back in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael. The storm was strong, but our people are stronger and we will rebuild. I appreciate the donations of Scientific Games and the many other private sector partners who have stepped up to help families hurting in the Panhandle.”

Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford said, “I am overwhelmed by the generosity of Scientific Games toward our community. Their donation will help many of my deputies who have lost everything in Hurricane Michael. It has been heart-breaking to see the serious losses in our community following the storm, but the silver lining in it all is seeing incredible private sector partners like Scientific Games step forward and provide relief in our time of need.”

Representative Jay Trumbull said, “This is a wonderful contribution to support the hard working men and women of the Bay County Sheriff’s Office. We have lost much in Hurricane Michael but we have also gained some tremendous support from our friends and for that I am grateful.”

Scientific Games Chief Group Executive of Lottery Jim Kennedy said, “We have a very strong connection to Florida. Millions of Floridians have played our Florida Lottery games over the last 30 years, and we have a very dedicated base of Scientific Games employees here in the state. So it is important to us to follow Governor Rick Scott and Governor-Elect Ron DeSantis’ lead and help those in need following Hurricane Michael. We want to do everything we can to help Florida come back stronger than ever before following the disaster.”

  • Governor Christie, the original plaintiff in the Supreme Court case that in May 2018 forever changed the gambling landscape in the United States, shares his insights as to why he directed the State of New Jersey to vigorously pursue litigation despite continual setbacks in New Jersey and despite opposition from the major sports leagues.

Registration to attend the Winter Meeting is open to the public at http://www.nclgs.org/meetings.html

“The ongoing rollout of sports betting is a focal point in statehouses across the country. We have assembled an outstanding program to address many aspects of this important policy issue,” said NCLGS Vice President and State Senator Keith Pickard. “Anyone with an interest in sports betting should attend our Winter Meeting.”
