13th April, 2011 at 03:39:01
Impressive recognition from World Lottery Association
When the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation launches online gambling operations for the provincial government next year (see previous reports), it will have one of the strongest responsible gambling programs in the business.
The company announced this week that it has attained the highest possible level of recognition for its responsible gaming programmes from the World Lottery Association (WLA).
The Crown corporation revealed that it has become only the fifth gaming operator in North America and one of only 22 in the world to achieve level-four accreditation from the WLA, which is an international organisation representing 142 gaming operators from 90 nations.
We are honoured and proud to be recognised for our responsible gaming policies and programmes by the World Lottery Association, said Paul Godfrey, Chairman for the OLG, this week.
The level-four WLA accreditation means that OLG lottery players and visitors to its gaming sites can be assured' that it is fully committed to educating staff and empowering the public with responsible gaming knowledge.
To achieve level-four accreditation, OLG was required to submit a comprehensive report accompanied by a second-party assessment that described how it had implemented its responsible gaming programmes in areas such as player education, employee and retailer training, advertising and marketing and game design.
