Nova Scotia Casino and Card Room Gaming
In 1991, video lottery terminals (VLTs) were legalized. They are operated by the Atlantic Lottery Corporation.
In November 2005, to help combat gambling addiction, Nova Scotia's government decided to pull 800 VLTs from bars and taverns. The following year another 151 VLTs were removed from facilities throughout the province.
In 2010, the NSGC introduced the "My-Play System," a program designed to prevent gamblers from becoming addicted to VLTs. The program gives players information about their current and past VLT activity and allows players to set a spending limit, to stop play immediately, and to set a time limit. The My-Play System became mandatory on all Nova Scotia VLTs in April 2012, but was pulled in August 2014 when the government cited the program as responsible for a CAD 47.5 million drop in VLT revenue between 2012 and 2014.
In spring 2012, the government of Nova Scotia rolled out new regulations to increase accountability in the gaming sector. As part of the changes, the Nova Scotia Gaming Corporation was renamed the Nova Scotia Provincial Lotteries and Casino Corporation.
Although operated by the Atlantic Lottery Corporation, Casino City considers VLTs to be a casino and card room gaming activity. For the purpose of this analysis, only non-First Nation VLTs are included.
