An online casino the Atlantic Lottery Corporation is running only in New Brunswick is allowing players to wager up to $100 on single spins of its virtual slot machines — 40 times more than the legal limit allowed for its physical video lottery terminals.
The gaming corporation says it is doing nothing wrong.
“The regulations for Atlantic Lottery’s online casino-style games are separate from video lottery regulations,” corporation spokesperson Molly Cormier said in an email response to questions about the virtual betting limits.
“The product mix and gaming rules for (the) online casino offering would be similar to land-based casino sites in New Brunswick. The products and standards are also consistent with other regulated online platforms operated by lotteries across Canada.”
