Online gambling gets regulatory green light in Saskatchewan
The launch of the regulated iGaming market in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan is going to be marked with the debut of PlayNow.com.
Being launched in a combined effort from the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority, the British Columbia Lottery Corporation and the Saskatchewan Gaming Corporation, the PlayNow.com online casino will be the first fully legislated online gambling operation in the province.
The arrangement was first announced back in June. It will involve BCLC’s PlayNow brand, although the operation in the new region will be managed by the SGC. Initially, it will offer players over 400 various casino products, although live casino services and some table games will be absent with the intention of being added sometime next year.
We are excited to have the ability to bring regulated online gambling to the province which matches with our social responsibility to keep players safe and entertained. We are honored and grateful to have worked with SaskGaming and SIGA on this project, as without them bringing our renowned PlayNow brand to Saskatchewan would have been much harder.
remarked the chief executive officer and president of the BC Lottery Corporation, Pat Davis.
We are delighted to have the ability to be the first and exclusive provider of various gambling products in the province. We are eager to deliver high quality and safe online casino and sportsbook services for Saskatchewanians to enjoy.
stated the chief executive officer and president of the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority, Zane Hansen.
This launch will mark PlayNow’s third operating province, as the website operates in Saskatchewan’s neighboring Manitoba as well.
