The province of Manitoba is the latest in Canada to give the go ahead to state-run online gaming. It has been announced that government officials have teamed up with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation with the goal of unveiling an online casino games website by 2013. They hope to make it one of the best online casinos in the market.After surveying the market, The Manitoba Lotteries decided to launch its own top rated online casino games website as it saw millions of dollars in revenue being diverted to illegal gambling sites. The province could potentially earn about $37 million annually from operating its own casino. They also went ahead with the plans because they want to ensure that the population is spending its money in a legal and protected environment.

 

Based upon the agreement made with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation, BCLC and GTECH G2 will do the website design, development and testing services. Manitoba Lotteries will be in charge of the daily operation of the casino. Representatives hope that the new online casino games site will begin operation in the beginning of 2013. They also intend for the website to become one of the best no deposit casinos online that offers players a variety of casino and poker games.

 

The Manitoba Lotteries has approximated a revenue increase of about $1.5 million in net income in the first year. By their calculations they should see that figure increase to $17 million by 2018. Authorities have determined that five percent of the revenue generated will be allocated to gambling and anti-addiction programs.
