Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has joined Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS), finally becoming a part of the great international association tasked with protecting the integrity of sports wagering on a global scale.
“We are honored to welcome Canada’s largest gaming jurisdiction, Ontario, into GLMS with the addition of OLG. Twice recognized by the World Lottery Association as having the Best Overall Responsible Gambling Program (in 2014 and 2018), OLG brings unique pedigree into the GLMS community of members. OLG joins us at a critical juncture of gaming expansion in Ontario and beyond, as we join forces in the pursuit of enhanced integrity and social responsibility in sports wagering,” Ludovico Calvi, President of GLMS said.
There are 33 organizations that are a member of GLMS, OLG included. OLG is the second Canadian organization that has joined this group. OLG is an agency of the Government of Ontario and it has been in the sports wagering business for a long time. It is worth more than $300 million in sales.
“OLG is pleased to become a member of GLMS and further strengthen the integrity of sports wagering in Ontario. GLMS’ commitment to providing oversight to the integrity of the global sports betting marketplace aligns with OLG’s reputation for developing world-class gaming entertainment for Ontario in a responsible way,” Lori Sullivan, OLG’s COO said.
