OLG doubles Canada’s GLMS representation

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has become the latest member of the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) – the state lotteries’ mutualised monitoring system for sports betting.

OLG is the association’s 33rd member and the second Canadian organisation to join after Loto Québec. An agency of the Government of Ontario, OLG manages a successful and regulated sports wagering business that is worth more than $300 million in sales.

GLMS President Ludovico Calvi said: “We are honoured 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.”

“OLG is pleased to become a member of GLMS and further strengthen the integrity of sports wagering in Ontario,” added Lori Sullivan, OLG’s Chief Operating Officer.

“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.”
