Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has confirmed it will launch its PROLINE+ platform that will enable its players to place a legal bet on a single event from their mobile device, tablet or desktop device for the first time ever in Ontario on August 27.
The launch date comes following confirmation that legislation permitting single event sports wagering in Canada will come into force on August 27, 2021.
“OLG has been looking forward to offering single event sports wagering to adult Ontarians for many years,” said Duncan Hannay, OLG President and CEO. “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 will deliver a new, enhanced betting experience with dynamic, competitive odds that update to reflect game status and betting action. Thousands of new betting options will be available at any time across all major North American sports leagues and major international sports, including soccer and exciting additions like tennis, golf, boxing and mixed martial arts. Active OLG.ca users will be able to use their existing accounts to log in and bet when PROLINE+ goes live. New players can sign up now at proline.ca to be eligible for a $50 sports bonus offer.
PROLINE+ will promote 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. An active OLG.ca account is required to play PROLINE+ and players must be 19 years of age or older and located in Ontario.
OLG is proud to return all its profit to the Ontario Government for reinvestment in strong communities, health care and other provincial priorities.
