Richmond Hill online gaming player charged by OPP with Cheat at Play

27 October 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- A Richmond Hill online gaming player has been charged with two counts of Cheat at Play, contrary to section 209 of the Criminal Code of Canada.

All regulated gaming sites – including OLG.CA as well as private operator sites conducted and managed by iGaming Ontario – are required by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario to have monitoring systems in place to ensure integrity and fairness of their games. The measures are designed to identify suspected illegal activity, and to protect lawful players.

The charges result from alleged illegal player activity on two OLG.CA blackjack games in May 2022. The suspected activity was observed in a “live dealer” online blackjack game by Evolution Gaming and subsequently brought to the attention of the AGCO. Evolution Gaming is a live dealer games supplier to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation registered with the AGCO.
