TORONTO – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has issued Request for Proposal (RFP) documents to pre-qualified proponents selected to bid on the Central Gaming Bundle.
The RFP for the Central Gaming Bundle will enable OLG to select one service provider to run day-to-day gaming operations at OLG Slots at Georgian Downs and Casino Rama.
The selected service provider will also have the opportunity to build a new gaming site in Wasaga Beach or Collingwood, subject to required approvals.
To OLG, the integrity of the procurement process is of the utmost importance. Public procurements involve information of a commercially sensitive nature. As a result, details of the RFP documents and names of pre-qualified proponents will not be released by OLG while the process is ongoing.
Additionally, there will be no further communication by OLG about the RFP for this bundle until the selected service provider is announced.
OLG expects to announce the successful service provider in spring 2018.
At more than $2.2 billion annually, OLG provides the Ontario government with its largest source of non-tax revenue. Modernization helps OLG provide more money to Ontario for key government services.
OLG is the Ontario government agency that delivers gaming entertainment in a socially responsible manner. OLG conducts and manages gaming facilities, the sale of province-wide lottery games, PlayOLG Internet gaming, the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres and is leading the integration of horse racing into the provincial gaming strategy.
Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $44 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. These payments to the province support the operation of hospitals, amateur sport through the Quest for Gold program, local and provincial charities and problem gambling prevention, treatment and research.
