Canada has been undergoing talks to introduce online gambling under provincial lottery systems to legalize and regulate gambling. While this is not a new discussion, rather one that has been ongoing for a substantial period of time, it looks like progress is much nearer than it has been before. This creates a bit of a dichotomy as Canada is looking to move things forward; the US is struggling with the UIGEA and the potential loss of the ability to gamble entirely.

Recently, an online casino software provider began to talk with lottery gaming corporations in the Canadian problems in order to bring in gambling and make it a reality. Microgaming is planning to partner with Betware in order to create a uniform online gambling system and software inventory of games to Canada and bring together the provinces and the game offerings for them.

Already, there are online casino games provided to the British Columbia lottery and this would take things to the next level; offering players an increased opportunity to see the same thing regardless of which lottery and province an online casino is moderated by. The Microgaming and Betware deal might go farther than simply Canada as well. There are other countries that use the lottery system to regulate online casinos and they hope to incorporate a similar system there once they have a chance to test it out in Canada.

Microgaming knows teaming up with Betware will bring big changes to the online gambling industry in general as well as to Canada. “Betware’s long history in gaming combined with its extensive lottery network will be beneficial in pushing the Microgaming brand into exciting new territories and markets," stated Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever. 'We look forward to a long and successful working relationship.” Betware has a similar sentiment, believing that it’s a partnership that will bring great benefits to the industry overall.

Of course, even with these changes, what Microgaming is known for will not change. They will continue to produce high-quality slots games on an ongoing basis. Some of he more popular online slots games recently added to their inventory being "Queen of the Jungle," "Lady in Red," and "Thunderstruck II”.
