Greg has history as a Canadian sports betting reporter for Better Collective with previous work appearing on sportshandle.com and usbets.com. His new role is to share breaking news and write about the latest developments from coast to coast for Canada Sports Betting.
Greg is a sports editor previously working for respected Canadian media outlets such as Rogers Sportsnet, theScore, and Covers Media Group. He’s covered sports in Canada for over a decade, specializing in NHL, NFL, CFL, MLB, and sports betting. In his spare time, he can be found attempting to break 90 on the golf course or cruising down the slopes at his local ski hill.
Greg has been following the exciting industry developments across Canada for the past year, including the launch of Ontario’s regulated iGaming and sports betting market, responsible gambling initiatives, the launch of a new online gambling site in Saskatchewan, the rollout of retail sports betting in Ontario, and the ongoing negotiation process between private sports betting operators and provincial regulators in Alberta.
Here is his first piece for Canada Sports Betting, about OLG’s announcement allowing retail sports betting in the province.
Warren’s deep dive article about the retail sports betting launch by Great Canadian Entertainment (CGE) and their 10 Ontario casinos that are part of their 25 gaming, entertainment, and hospitality establishments throughout Canada, now being able to accept in-person retail sports bets, is the kind of compelling wagering content Ontarians and fellow Canadians can look for going forward.
Greg also shared news about the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation press release announcement on the agreement on compliance with the Ontario government providing the path for the launch of retail sportsbooks private operators that manage the day-to-day operations of the venues, such as CGE.
Ontario has five major casino providers: Gateway Casinos, Fallsview Casino Resort, Caesars Windsor, Hard Rock Ottawa, and GCE.
Established and new gamblers around the province of Ontario laid down in excess of $6 billion while the online market kicked in $267 million in total gaming revenue taken from iCasino, online poker, and online sports betting. The 628,000 active player accounts sports betting data came from the Fiscal Year Q2 report released by iGaming Ontario for the period of July 1-Sept. 30, 2022, when each punter spent an average of $142 per month.
Sports Techie, Canada lifted the federal ban on single-game sports betting on August 27, 2021. Covers has an interactive map highlighting each Canadian province and territories standing on legalized single-game sports bets after Bill C-128, the Safe and Regulated Sport s Betting Act, took effect. Before this change, parlay betting and pari-mutual wagering were the only forms of legal sports betting across the nation. The notion of lost revenue to offshore sports betting was a main driving force for the adoption of single-game wagering as a means to generate those funds for the Canadian economy and not lose it overseas.
Sports betting and sports technology are certainly ramping up in the United States and Canada.
