The province of Alberta will launch online gambling after entering selecting platform provider NeoPollard Interactive to power its offering through a tender process.
The province confirmed plans to launch igaming, regulated by the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission (AGLC), in March as part of its 2020 budget. In 2019, it launched a request for proposals to determine who would provide the necessary technology for the offering.
NeoPollard, a subsidiary of lottery ticket printing company Pollard Banknote and also provides interactive lottery solutions in Virginia, New Hampshire, Michigan and North Carolina, won this process. The AGLC’s agreement with NeoPollard will last seven years, with an optional twelve-year extension.
“NeoPollard Interactive is honoured to be entrusted by AGLC to power its online gambling solution using our market-proven technology, services and games,” Liz Siver, general manager of NeoPollard Interactive said.
