OLG launches sports betting app that offers online and in-store betting options
TORONTO — The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has launched a sports betting app that offers online and in-store betting options.
The company said the app is designed for both retail and online players and is the first of its kind to be introduced to the gaming market in Ontario. Participants can place and pay live bets in real time on the new PROLINE+ or create bets and generate a barcode on the app, which can be used to purchase PROLINE tickets at nearly 10,000 outlets around across Ontario.
“OLG continues to expand our unique and integrated product offerings for our valued customers,” said Dave Pridmore, OLG’s chief digital and strategy officer, in a statement. “The new app offers players the unprecedented ability to place a sports bet directly on the app or at retail using the bet creation functionality.
“This latest product enhancement reinforces our commitment to convenience and choice for our players while delivering a competitive sportsbook with the trust, confidence and goodwill of the OLG brand.”
The app is free to download and secure and accessible on iOS and Android devices. Players can bet on the full range of sports betting and in-play betting markets available on PROLINE+.
The OLG added that the app is designed to promote responsible gambling. Tools are built in to help establish and maintain healthy gaming habits, as well as access to PlaySmart.ca, a responsible gaming program.
