The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation will be issuing a Request for Pre-Qualification to operate the Windsor Gaming Bundle, which consists of the Windsor Casino.

“Launching a competitive procurement to select a long-term service provider for the Windsor Gaming Bundle will complete OLG’s modernization of the Ontario gaming marketplace,” said Stephen Rigby, OLG’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “It will also help protect the long-term competitiveness of the Windsor market.”

In order to include the Windsor Gaming Bundle in modernization, OLG has entered into a three-year agreement to extend its existing contract with the current operator, Caesars Entertainment Windsor Limited, beyond July 31st, 2020.

The OLG says that they will take that time to “conduct a fair and competitive procurement process for the Windsor Gaming Bundle and transition the day-to-day operations to the successful proponent.”

OLG will require the successful proponent to retain employees at the Windsor Casino for a period of no less than 12 months once it takes over operation of the site in mid-2023. This 12-month retention period is consistent with all other Gaming Bundles in Ontario. Unionized employees will transfer to the successful proponent under the terms and conditions of their collective agreement.

OLG expects to release a Request for Pre-Qualification by the fall of 2020.
