BCLC ramps up sports betting capabilities with SG trading service

Canadian operator British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) has upped its sports betting capabilities with the integration of Scientific Games’ OpenTrade Managed Trading Services (MTS).

BCLC’s PlayNow.com digital gaming site is now live with the full OpenTrade risk and liability management service giving the operator access to proprietary feeds services, pre-match and in-play pricing across the full range of US sports and many more.

BCLC now uses the company’s full OpenSports product suite, following the Lottery’s agreement with Scientific Games to power its digital sports betting offering through 2024.

Keith O’Loughlin, SVP Sportsbook, Digital at Scientific Games, said: “BCLC is a valued customer and we’re excited to launch OpenTrade with the Lottery. OpenTrade is the final piece of the jigsaw that will allow BCLC to provide its large customer base with exciting experiences that are backed by reliable technology and trading expertise.

“We’re looking forward to next chapter of our journey with BCLC. They have an excellent team who are demonstrating the power of bringing digital gaming and betting experiences to the forefront of world lottery strategies.”

Through Scientific Games’ OpenTrade service, BCLC will soon be able to offer 300,000 events, 200,000 events in-play and over 25 million markets per year, once global sporting activity returns to normal levels.

Meanwhile BCLC has announced Marie-Noëlle Savoie as its new Vice President of Legal, Compliance and Security and Chief Compliance Officer. 

Savoie, who will be based out of BCLC’s Vancouver office, starts in the role effective 29 June, 2020.

Savoie comes to BCLC from Raymond James Ltd, where she was most recently its Vice President of Private Client Group Compliance as well as the Chief Compliance Officer & Chief Risk Officer of Raymond James Trust (Canada).

With several years of operational experience in compliance, privacy, anti-money laundering and risk management in regulated industries, Savoie applies a strategic and solutions-oriented leadership style to the workplace.
