The AGLC to Enter the World of Online Gambling
In other gambling news from Canada, The AGLC (Alberta Gaming, Liquor, and Cannabis) agency, is looking forward to expanding its services to include online gambling, which is a move that aims to keep the agency relevant to the residents of Alberta. The Canadian agency has sent an RFP (Request for Proposal) for a contractor who can provide online gambling services. The proposal stated that the residents of Alberta already spend more than 350 million dollars a year on gambling on unregulated sites. The RFP said that an online gambling website is going to help capture a piece of the annual spending of the Albertans on illegal gambling sites.
The spokesperson of the AGLC, Angelle Sasseville stated that internet gambling is not a new thing, and many residents of Alberta always pay a lot of money on offshore-based websites. The document also noted that online gaming would allow the AGLC to pursue new revenue chances, beyond its usual land-based operations. It also added that it would be able to offer a regulated site that will provide a secure service, with age-verification procedures, which will prevent minors from playing at these sites.
