The latest Canadian province that announced plans to launch an online casino site for gaming fans in the near future is Manitoba. The province is going down the path of providing state-run online gambling and in order to succeed, they announced plans to partner with British Columbia Lottery Corporation from 2013. The purpose is to combat thousands of illegal sites which cost the province $37 million in revenues annually. Also, Manitoba Lotteries said that by running its own internet gambling site, residents of the province do not fall into the trap of putting their money in the hand of operators who offer no responsible gambling features.

The new site which is due to launch in the first quarter of 2013 will include plenty of gambling options including online casino, poker and other exciting games. Besides that, the website will probably offer online bingo and sports betting to Canadian gambling fans. According to the agreement, British Columbia Lottery Corporation in association with GTECH G2 will provide the site design, development and testing services while Manitoba Lotteries will run other aspects of the online casino site. The province representatives estimate the new online site will generate $1.5 million in net income in its first year and almost $17 million by 2018. From this generated income, five percent will be used into various responsible gambling and anti-addiction programs.

In the past two years, other Canadian provinces including Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia and the Atlantic provinces all launched their own online gambling platform. After launching their own regulated online gambling environment, many provinces are looking to expand from their online games and tickets platform into the popular field of mobile gambling, as a response to the numerous unregulated sites which do the same thing. A few years ago, Canada started expanding online gambling in order to fight the increasing number of illegal and unregulated online casino sites which appeared on the Canadian online gambling market. Now, with Manitoba’s decision to join the fight, most online operators that are not approved to run on the Canadian market will probably close their deals on the local market.
