Oakville, Ontario: Earlier this week, John Oliver, MP for Oakville visited Delta Bingo & Gaming and presented Cam Johnstone, CEO at Delta Bingo & Gaming with a certificate of recognition on celebrating 50 years of hard work, fun and philanthropic donations.  “Delta’s contributions and commitment to numerous charitable organizations has been integral to our Oakville community” added John Oliver.  John also presented Cam with a certificate of recognition from The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada. 

This year has been special for Delta Bingo & Gaming as they celebrate their 50th anniversary.  “We are proud to look at our past and what we have accomplished as a family and can’t wait to see what’s in store for the next 50 years.  Thank you to our staff, customers, charities and all partners.” said Mr. Johnstone.

1421 – AGCO - CGAO Training Pilot

During the course of the summer, work has continued to refine and make minor updates to the training module. We are now in a position where this will be tested with our partners (on this project) the AGCO, by AGCO team members, which is tremendous and that is set to occur this week.

As we have stated before, this is an important initiative and ground breaking for the Community Gaming Sector, where we are partners with our regulator to bring forth a module training platform and we are rather excited about this opportunity.

This project is being led by our Policy Advisor, Mr. Don Bourgeois, with firm and focused support from the Board of Directors (CGAO) and AGCO representatives. What is important to remember is this is a pilot and they are designed to flush out critical elements to enhance potential programs for the future.

1422 – Diamond Game

It was been announced over the summer [August] that Pollard Games will undertake the ownership of Innova Group. The CGAO wish Diamond Game continued success with their new parent company.

Should you have questions, please contact Mr. Peter Howard at Diamond Game.

1423 – Victorian Gambling Commission (Australia)

I recently had the opportunity to meet with representatives of the Victorian Gambling Commission (Australia) in their offices in Melbourne.

The Australian Gambling Sector is very vibrant at this time with a range of activities from Casinos/Slots, Horse Racing, Bingo and Online/Sports betting. It is extremely useful to get this exposure and connection to different markets and approaches. It is odd that you can be on the other side of the world and the broad challenges are very similar indeed. The key thing, I believe, is building constructive and productive relationships with your partners/stakeholders.

1424 – Quebec - Gets Ready for c-Gaming Pilot

The province of Quebec is gearing up to launch a c-Gaming pilot in five (5) Centres. This will be a mixture of sizes and locations. The bingo system has been selected (‘Planet Bingo’) and as well is launching with a bingo product portfolio.

It is projected to launch later this year [November] and the pilot is scheduled to run for a period of twelve (12) months. We wish Mr. Francois-Patrick Allard and his team, combined with the industry, every success as they begin this journey.
