At the start of the month, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation reported that it earned over a million Canadian dollars after only one week of single-sport betting in the country. The Ontario Lottery’s favorite platform, Proline, handled most of the gambling (74%) related to single-sports betting.
OLG’s chief digital and safety officer, Dave Pridmore, said that Canadians have been waiting for a “best-in-class” online betting platform and that Proline fulfilled their wishes. He stated that Proline’s PROLINE+ is the answer to all their needs, especially now when single-game betting is allowed in Ontario.
The Canadian Gaming Association’s chief executive officer, Paul Burns, agrees with Pridmore. He also sees Proline as a top choice for Canadian bettors, believing that the platform will prove to be a great success.
Burns also mentioned a launch of a private market for single-game sports betting.
“On future rollouts, Ontario is the only province that has firm plans to invite privately operated sportsbooks into the market; others are evaluating or are unlikely at this point.”
Although Ontario had a pretty strong start of single-game betting, British Columbia also had great success on that field. It seems that the two provinces will be competing with each other in terms of gambling stats. British Columbia has received an influx of 1208 new bettors on its platform, PlayNow.com. Also, the province had a 96% jump in the total wagers count and a 72% rise in the total gambled sum.
