PlayOLG.ca unlikely to meet autumn target launch date.

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation appears to be playing it safe with the launch of its online gambling service on the website PlayOLG.ca.

Working with Spielo-GTech the lottery had hoped to launch this autumn, but a spokesman said this week that "developmental delays" have now pushed the implementation date back "indefinitely."

A spokesman said that it was important that Canada's most populous province "gets it right" in launching such a contentious service as online gambling, and that the province had been monitoring developments in the international industry as it developed its offering, in which content would be strictly controlled.

The OLG website is already live as an information carrier on the e-gaming project, and the lottery has announced that popular lotto games will lead the charge when the site opens, followed in phases by casino, poker, sports betting and table online games from SpieloG2.

Internet gambling is currently regulated in seven other provinces: British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, P.E.I., and Quebec.
