The Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission (AGLC) has entered into an agreement with NeoPollard Interactive to build and maintain Alberta’s legal online gambling platform.
The online platform will provide a secure, age-controlled environment that promotes healthy gambling behavior and fully integrates AGLC’s GameSense responsible gambling program.
“For nearly 25 years, AGLC has been a leader in the management of Alberta’s gaming industry, which brings benefits to all Albertans and our communities. We are excited to move forward with NeoPollard to offer a dynamic entertainment option that brings Alberta in line with other Canadian provinces that deliver regulated online gambling sites,” Niaz Nejad, COO of AGLC, said.
“NeoPollard Interactive is honoured to be entrusted by AGLC to power its online gambling solution using our market-proven technology, services and games. We are confident that our partnership with AGLC will help generate incremental revenues to benefit all Albertans,” Liz Siver, General Manager of NeoPollard Interactive, said.
AGLC is mandated to ensure the gaming industry is carefully managed so it can maximize the benefits to Albertans. In 2018-19, over $1.4 billion in net gaming income was generated for the General Revenue Fund.
