Bill C-218 Changes Legal Online Casino Canada Landscape

The province of Ontario is leading the way as far as the proposed roll-out of offerings for the single-event betting on sports is concerned. So much so, that the province has concrete plans in place for legal online casino Canada offerings that will allow punters to place wagers on single-event sporting events by at least December this year.

The latest big developments on the sports betting front follows the signing into force of a new act that has amended the country’s Criminal Code to the extent that placing bets on single sporting events is no longer a criminal offence. Bill C-218, which was tabled by private member of parliament Kevin Waugh, is the first piece of sports betting legislation to have made it through the various approval stages as well as received Royal Assent. It was passed into law on August 27, 2021.

About The OLG’s Proline+ App

The passing of the new legislation now allows Canadian provinces to each set their own laws for how sports betting on single events will be administrated – both regarding online as well as physical (retail) betting facilities. This has changed the face of legal online casino Canada activities immeasurably already.

The province of Ontario is leading the way with the launch of their exciting new Proline+ app for providing sports betting opportunities to punters residing locally. Thanks to the OLG’s proactive efforts, a massive variety of sports betting options will soon be available to local bettors – complete with a banking method and betting option to suit every customer’s preference.

Sports to be supported by the app will include football, soccer, baseball, rugby, golf, and the MMA. This means bettors will be able to enjoy wagering on all their favourite big sporting events – including the American Superbowl and the Stanley Cup.

Millions Have Signed Up

The Proline+ app is safe to use and will be overseen by the legal online casino Canada authorities so as to ensure responsible gambling and fairness. This will ensure peace of mind for all customers using the app, which will be available to all local sports bettors over the age of 19.

As of right now, more than a million prospective sports bettors have signed up for Proline+. The app is compatible with a variety of devices, including desktop pcs, tablets, smartphones, and other handheld devices.

Those players who’ve made use of the early registration offering announced by the OLG also stand a chance of winning their share in free bonus money.
