Alberta introduce first legal online sportsbook

The Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC) have launched the first online sportsbook in Alberta. This has come off the back of other provinces in the Great White North who have also begun to introduce new online sportsbooks since August 2021.

The sportsbook offering is an addition to the already well-liked Play Alberta platform. The sportsbook is done in conjunction with NeoPollard’s NeoSphere iLottery technology as well as the trading and betting services offered by Sporting Solutions.

AGLC are always looking to improve the Play Alberta platform and adding a sports betting section to the site will enhance the overall gambling experience for the consumers on the site,” said AGLC acting president and CEO Kandice Machado. “The addition of sports betting to the site will provide users with a more modern and regulated feel to online sports betting.”

NeoPollard Interactive general manager Liz Siver spoke of how NPi are always looking to enhance and improve their existing products that include the lottery casino and now online sports betting. Albertans will be treated to a far more comprehensive online gambling experience with the introduction of the now fully fleshed out sports betting platform at Play Alberta.

She went on to say that NPi have always provided the AGLC with top of the range operational services and superb digital gaming content. With the introduction of the online sportsbook to play Alberta, it is now an all-encompassing offering. NPi in conjunction with Sporting Solutions are proud to be working together in offering Albertan residents their first official online and regulated sportsbook.

More gambling opportunities on the horizon

The reason we have seen this swift launch of the first online sportsbook in Alberta is because of a legislative change that allowed for single event sports wagering in Canada. This has given Play Alberta the perfect time to launch their online sportsbook which is shown to be taken to quickly by the Albertan sports betting fans. In addition to a comprehensive online sportsbook, NPi are also working with the AGLC on new and improved lotto games, slots and live dealer games in the near future as well.
