The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has just released the final Registrar’s Standards, which have been updated to include the feedback on sport and event wagering standards.

The sport and event betting standards were developed to address the expanded menu of sport and event betting options  and to minimize the potential compromising of betting markets through activities such as insider betting or game manipulation including:

  • Requiring operators to actively monitor the betting markets for suspicious betting activity
  • Prohibiting insiders, including coaches, athletes and referees, from betting on certain events
  • Ensuring that sport and event offerings meet acceptable betting criteria and are not objectionable

On Monday, September 13, prospective iGaming operators and gaming-related suppliers can access application forms that will be available on iAGCO.
