Loto-Québec joining lottery commissions from B.C. and Atlantic Canada to
provide common platform for online gaming

VANCOUVER, Feb. 4 /CNW/ - Loto-Québec's announcement that it will join lottery corporations in British Columbia and Atlantic Canada to offer a common platform for online gaming is a positive acknowledgement of the current gaming landscape. The Interactive Gaming Council (IGC) applauds the government of Québec for recognizing the legitimacy of online gaming as well as the economic benefits that can be realized and driven back into communities.

Yet what Loto-Québec, British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) and Atlantic Lottery Corporation (ALC) have chosen is but one model available. The IGC believes in an open and fully regulated model that can offer even greater consumer protection and revenue generation opportunities.

The IGC looks forward to continuing to work with Canadian lottery corporations to help develop responsible and effective gaming policies that offer Canadians online experiences that are transparent, secure, legitimate and fun.

The Interactive Gaming Council is a non-profit trade association that serves as a collective voice for the interactive gaming industry. The IGC champions initiatives that address the multi-various challenges and opportunities facing the global Internet gambling industry, in order to ensure an environment of fair and responsible gambling.
