GTECH G2 poker presence expanding in Canada
13 Apr 2012
Working with BCLC, Manitoba Lotteries is expected to launch its online casino and poker offering in 2013 with the site regulated by the Manitoba Gaming Control Commission.
“Manitoba Lotteries joining the Canadian Poker Network through its partnership with BCLC is a very exciting development for GTECH G2,” says William Scott, GTECH G2 Vice President. “We have seen the network increase in scale since launching in December 2010 and its continued growth will help generate greater player numbers and larger tournaments.”
GTECH G2 provides its poker solution to BCLC and Loto-Quebec, who offer legal regulated poker to players in their provinces. In 2011, over 40,000 tournaments were held on Canada’s legal network, one of six legal networks using GTECH G2 worldwide.
Rhonda Garvey, VP of iGaming at BCLC, added: “GTECH G2 provides a world-class poker solution and has a strong reputation in regulated markets. The experience of GTECH G2 in both Canada and around the world in running successful poker networks has been fundamental to our success and continued growth.”
