Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk released a report on Wednesday. She questions the legality of Ontario's proposed internet gaming model under the criminal code and the governance structure for internet games in the province. The report presents the chance to air the possible pitfalls of the current legislation to the public. It would allow regulators to adjust their plans. Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation is the only legal provider of iGaming in Ontario. They also run the PROLINE + sportsbook. Sportsbooks like DraftKings have expressed interest in working in province, but the government has not yet agreed to create its own iCasino enterprise.

Auditor General sees legal risks and potential conflict of interest in new online gambling framework. Government hopes to have all disclosures in place to keep the connection between AGCO and iGaming Ontario.
