How Ontario Lottery and Gaming Helps Canadians
In Ontario, gambling is more than just a fun pastime! Revenue from gambling and the lottery helps boost economic development in the province, too. Online casinos like JackpotCity are managed by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), which is also responsible for things like land-based casinos, lottery games, bingo, and horse racing. The revenue from this corporation helps support hospitals, charities, and youth sports leagues. And, to help keep gaming fun for everyone, some of the funds also support problem gambling prevention and treatment.
OLG wants to make gaming better for everyone, which includes growing the online market for gambling. This makes casino games more accessible to players, which in turn generates revenue for OLG’s initiatives. Internet gaming revenue has been growing steadily over the years, and is projected to be over $500 million by 2021. That’s still not as much as the lottery (which accounted for more than $4 billion in revenue in 2018!), but it’s on the rise as more people discover the fun of playing at an online casino.
Thanks to OLG, you can enjoy online casino games while knowing that they’re helping benefit your community. Everyone wins!
