With many members working or spending more time at home, they are interested in finding new ways to pass the time.  Online gaming may seem like a harmless way to have some fun – and it can be as long as you remain vigilant to potential fraud.

Please note that it is illegal for online gaming sites or hosts to request money to participate in any sort of gaming activity or for you to pay to participate in any online gaming.  Online gaming can include games of chance, bingo, raffles, poker, squares, etc., and must be run through the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG).  It is important that members do not send funds to or participate in games run through social media sites that are not properly licensed.

If you are asked to pay to play think twice – make sure the host holds or displays a valid license!
