1643 – cGaming – The Sector
The recent developments within the scope of the Pandemic have seen, once again, the need to deploy capacity limits and to restrict the sale and consumption of food and beverage within our venues. This ensures that while your guests are with us, they are retaining the use of masks at all times as a tool/defense against the spread of the virus.
Although this news was disappointing, it is understandable and our members are engaging and complying with the requirements as indicated. This has, in some cases, had local management reviewing their bingo offering and where it is deemed necessary make changes to ensure we can operate accordingly.
In line with the Provincial Government directive, our members are re-scaling their Holiday Promotional Programs, especially New Year’s Eve, to ensure we are acting in accordance with the directives and taking steps to ensure our guests are fully aware of those changes.
Although our overall trading outlook is still facing headwinds, we are managing to edge forward and keep cGaming activated and meaningful. This has really been through the hard work of our front-line employees and supported by our partners OCGA, OLG, Municipalities and AGCO. As we close out the year, we can be extremely proud of our collective achievement.
It is a reminder that the cGaming/Traditional Bingo Sector is a valuable platform for the various host communities we are located in. It continues to deliver meaningful and direct funds to our community based Charity Partners and we need to collectively continue this important work.
