Adds to Company’s Licenses Throughout the U.S. and Canada

 

Underscoring the importance of being licensed to conduct cybersecurity work, IT and cybersecurity firm Bulletproof has received a Class II license from the Nevada Gaming Control Board. This license adds to the multiple licenses the company already holds throughout the U.S. and Canada.

“In today’s era of rapidly evolving technology, it is crucial for businesses to continually deploy aggressive cybersecurity tactics. Having attained a Class II license from the NGCB will allow Bulletproof to use our expertise to help Nevada casinos reduce risk and to improve processes, systems, and business infrastructure,” said Bulletproof CEO Steven Burns.

“While Bulletproof services a wide range of industries globally, we have deep knowledge of the gaming industry and of how technology powers its processes. That knowledge will be beneficial to the Nevada casinos we serve. Being licensed by the NGCB gives casinos an added layer of confidence when engaging our firm and entrusting us with their data,” he added.

Great Canadian Gaming Corporation announced that it has completed agreements with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and the owners of the Ajax Downs racetrack for the continued operation of slots at Ajax Downs in Ajax, Ontario.

The Greater Toronto Area gaming bundle was awarded to the Ontario Gaming GTA Limited Partnership and is operated by the Company. The GTA bundle originally included Casino Woodbine, Great Blue Heron Casino, and Casino Ajax, whose operation was to be relocated to a new casino resort property to be developed by GCGC in Pickering, in addition to a fourth gaming zone opportunity to be located in the GTA bundle.

After assuming operation of the GTA Bundle, GCGC planned to close the Ajax slots facility upon the opening of a new casino resort property in Pickering. With the provincial government’s most recent commitment to horse racing and job creation, this agreement allows for the addition of this new gaming zone and the continued operation of Casino Ajax with 500 slots with all current amenities.

The consummation of this agreement, initiated by Ontario’s provincial government and OLG, affords stability for quarter horse racing at Ajax Downs, jobs supported by the facility, and the provincial horse racing industry in general.

“Since being awarded the East, GTA and West GTA gaming bundles, we have already created more than 1,100 new local jobs,” said Rod Baker, Chief Executive Officer of GCGC. “With the encouragement of the OLG and the provincial government, we have quickly moved forward with an aggressive capital development plan in all markets we are operating in. There will be approximately 4,000 additional new jobs for people in Ontario communities once our developments are fully built out.”

“The decision by the provincial government to create a new gaming zone at Ajax Downs has secured several hundred jobs at that location, with no impact on the number of jobs originally planned at the new facility under development in Pickering,” added Baker. “This agreement also provides an opportunity for further capital investment and a more diverse selection of gaming options to our guests. Great Canadian is pleased with the collaboration from all stakeholders in bringing this agreement to fruition and the commitment by the provincial government to economic development and job creation in Ontario.”

“I would like to thank the Government of Ontario, OLG, Great Canadian Gaming, and the loyal customers of Casino Ajax for their continued support and constructive work to finalize this agreement. This is a good day for horse racing, and we’re excited to contribute to meaningful local employment opportunities in Ontario,” said Justin Picov, President of Ajax Downs.

SheIS Partners with Lazarus Esports

Lazarus Esports, a Canadian multigaming esports organisation, has joined forces with SheIS, a not-for-profit group, to shine a spotlight on women’s esports.

“It’s like the Winnie the Pooh and Piglet in a windstorm trying to hold the umbrella down, because it’s taken off so phenomenally,” Brenda Andress, the president and founder of SheIS said.

The SheIS Collective includes the National Women’s Soccer League, WNBA and other women’s leagues as well as the United States Tennis Association, Rugby Canada and Baseball Canada, among other organisations. They meet to find ways to celebrate women’s sports and athletes and share each other’s accomplishments.

Many may wonder why men and women do not just play in the same league. The NBA 2K League took a step forward when Chicago’s Chiquita Evans became the league’s first female pro, drafted in the fourth round by Warriors Gaming, which is operated by the Golden State Warriors.

Female gamers have also competed alongside men in the past in the Call of Duty and other leagues, Tidal Games CEO Charlie Watson said.

“There’s still a lot of work to be done in the industry to merge men and women, co-ed, on the same teams,” he added.

But he believes it is just a matter of time before “those two worlds … collide” and more co-ed teams emerge.
