Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has announced the launch of a new mobile app as part of plans to expand its digital presence.
As a result, customers can now take part in the Ontario state lottery and other online casino games directly from their mobile devices. OLG is incentivising people to join the app by offering new customers $300 credit when they sign up.
OLG has launched the app in collaboration with Bede Gaming, who it partnered back in 2020 to establish its official website. Since going live, the OLG portal has seen “hundreds of thousands of players register”.
Sarah Hitchcock, Executive Vice President of Bede Gaming, commented: “The launch of the new OLG App is the latest in a series of exciting product launches for OLG and Bede. We are extremely proud of the app, having worked hand in hand with OLG, and look forward to giving Ontarians a first-class mobile experience.”
Lottery ticket scanners are featured on the app, allowing users to view their tickets and winnings instantly. Furthermore, it includes OLG’s Playsmart program which allows users to monitor their gambling habits and set any limits on their gambling.
Duncan Hannay, OLG’s CEO, commented: “OLG.ca is the trusted digital platform of choice in Ontario and now our players can have that same confidence in the OLG App, whether they’re making a deposit, playing their favourite game or scanning their tickets to check for winners.”
