Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has released a Request for Pre-Qualification (RFPQ) for the Windsor casino, which is currently Caesars Windsor. This is the first stage in a procurement process to select a service provider to handle the day-to-day gaming operations at the site.
“OLG is advancing plans that will support the long-term vibrancy and excitement of the casino experience in Ontario. Releasing the RFPQ for the Windsor casino is the first step in selecting a highly qualified service provider that will ensure the long-term competitiveness of the site while continuing to generate economic benefits for the local community and for Ontario,” Duncan Hannay, President and CEO of OLG, said.
The RFPQ process will enable OLG to prequalify potential proponents based on their previous experience operating a large gaming resort. Those that prequalify will proceed to the Request for Proposal (RFP) phase of the procurement. During the RFP phase, prequalified proponents will receive documents that outline the opportunity in Windsor and the information required to submit a detailed proposal. The RFPQ process will close on May 25, 2023.
The Windsor Casino is currently operated by Caesars Windsor Entertainment Limited. The procurement process, which the current operator can participate in if it chooses, will ensure a service provider is in place when the current operating agreement ends.
While the winning proponent will handle the day-to-day gaming operations of the Windsor casino, OLG will continue to conduct and manage gaming in Windsor.
