Hello helafast and all:

I am also in Ontario and I too have the same problem with BTG games. There is a whole world of games we can not see (including anything online by Scientific Games). I don't have a definitive answer on this but I do know this:

- IGT has not run the OLG for sometime. Scientific Games took over running to site.

- There still are lots of IGT games on PLAY OLG

- Scientific Games has many more games available now.

- There are currently exactly 100 games here now.

- Scientific Games is licensing several games from BTG. So far RAGIMG RHINO MEGAWAYS.

- Beetlejuice NEGAWAYS is in testing.

Contact me ... we can talk more: TheShamusOfSlots @ gmail.com

I gave been on You Tube 10 years and on the internet over 15 years!

Take care folks! /\/\/\/\ the Shamus /\/\/\/\
Thank goodness IGT not running OLG they are the worst of the worst. Actually PlayOLG at the moment is one of the worst online casinos not sure why BTG has made a deal with such crappy outfit but hey it's there choice guess they were sleeping behind the wheel when they made this deal. looks like they took the wrong turn. Sorry BTG your games are some of the best but you pissed off alot of Canadians with your stupid move to try to do a deal with Playolg...

Survivor Megaways has been added to Lotoquebec this morning. I appreciate the efforts put in to release these games hopefully they end up releasing the whole BTG library. However the game was extremely laggy it was unplayable...

Videoslots team posted on their forum BTG games may be returning for Canada end of August into Sept of this year on Videoslots.

This is the best news I heard all year, well at least for us Canadian gamblers that love BTG games.
Would be nice if BTG can confirm this or any other casino want to add to this, also would be interesting what turn of events led to this.

I would say for Canada we been lucky compared to other countries were certain games/casinos been banned.
We got Netent back and if we get BTG back that be the icing on the cake.

Has anyone checked out Playfallsview.com Fallsview casino new app, it's just for fun play, myself I haven't played but what is interesting is there is a lot of games like Netent, red tiger etc which I have never seen at any Ontario casino, is this a sign of big changes coming to Ontario casinos?

Correct me if I am wrong but a provider offering their portfolio to espacejeux or playolg means that they sign an exclusivity deal with them in that province so offering it to a casino considered illegal by them would probably risk their long term deal with the governement. Its not a coincidence that no online casino ever offered quebec residents the possibility to play IGT games. They have a similar deal with then since forever since every physical slot machine is spielo and/or IGT in quebec. Good old 92% low variance scum games. Since BTG havent been around for many many years like IGT, some wreckless casinos offered their games even after they started to provide games for loto quebec. At least softswiss were offering btg games via relax gaming. Skillsonnet didnt bother, nyx btg games until threats by local governement directly to btg;)

Did you notice that the SG games all show limited time now? I saw that this morning on my mobile app.

Maybe a change coming although I don't wanna see Rhino goo

If the new OLG site has all the games we love like BTG etc and has a good VIP reward program I wonder how many Ontario players will stop playing at some of the UK and other casinos.

I pretty much stick to 3 casinos but if the new OLG has many of the games I like and is a cool site I can see my self playing less at my favourites and playing at OLG. Of course, I have my hopes up high for the makeover but with Bede running things now I think it is going to be good.

However, I do not like the fact OLG making contract deals like BTG etc leaving us no choice to play OLG if we want to play these providers. I understand its business but are they afraid of some competition? Jumping ahead of myself as the new site not up and running but looking forward to the new fresh look.

They say it's rolling out soon but who knows when that really will be, there always behind and rarely deliver in what they say so hope that changes as well. Does anyone know when the new site will be up and running? Is there an official date?
