On-line gambling

2010-08-16

Queen’s University School of Business professor John Pliniussen is available to discuss the Ontario government’s decision to enter the on-line gambling market.

“The Ontario Lottery Corporation’s decision to move into on-line gambling is long overdue. While unions worry about job losses, unemployment will happen more rapidly if on-line gambling isn't adopted,” says Professor Pliniussen, who specializes in e-marketing and sales. “The OLC must be careful to avoid the mistakes of other government-sponsored on-line gambling efforts. Consumers must be educated on the pros and cons. Given OLC's problems in managing its current operations, we can expect similar hick-ups when it transitions to the Internet.”
