The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has welcomed the legislation permitting single-event sports wagering in Canada by announcing its digital sports betting platform PROLINE+.
To be launched on August 27, the same day which the sports betting legislation comes into force in Canada, PROLINE+ will enable its Ontario players to place a legal bet on a single event from their mobile device, tablet, or desktop device.
Duncan Hannay, OLG President and CEO, commented: “OLG has been looking forward to offering single-event sports wagering to adult Ontarians for many years. We’re thrilled that we’ll be able to incorporate this exciting feature that bettors have been anxiously awaiting into Ontario’s only legal online sportsbook.
“In fact, OLG is imminently launching a new digital sports betting platform PROLINE+, which will provide the same security and trust that has been established by OLG’s sports products over the last thirty years.”
OLG is currently accepting early registrations for PROLINE+, which includes thousands of new betting options available at any time across all major North American sports leagues and major international sports, including soccer, tennis, golf, boxing, and mixed martial arts.
Active OLG.ca users can use their existing accounts to log in to PROLINE+ when it goes live, while new players can sign up at proline.ca and are eligible for a $50 sports bonus offer.
PROLINE+ promotes responsible gambling and features player tools and educational materials from OLG’s globally recognized PlaySmart program, which received the highest level of certification from the World Lottery Association.
OLG returns all its profit to the Ontario Government for reinvestment in strong communities, health care, and other provincial priorities.
