Specialised payment platform Paysafe has expanded its relationship with Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, launching Canada’s first provincial lottery and gaming affiliate programme.

Affiliates in Ontario, across Canada and internationally, will now be able to promote to players within Ontario, with its broad product offering, which includes icasino and sports betting on PROLINE+.

The new affiliate programme is powered by the affiliate software of Income Access, Paysafe’s marketing technology and services provider, which is also managing the programme.

Dave Pridmore, OLG’s Chief Digital and Strategy Officer, commented: “OLG has significant recognition as a trusted gaming and entertainment brand in Ontario.

“Paysafe and its Income Access platform will help OLG continue to show Ontarians our market leading customer experience and products that are available at

“We are excited to continue to grow our customer base because 100% of OLG profits are reinvested back into the province. So, when you play, you play for Ontario.”

Geoff Smorong, Vice President of Operations at Income Access, added: “The launch of the affiliate programme marks a fitting landmark for the 20th anniversary of Income Access’ founding in Montreal.

“As a company with deep Canadian roots, we’re proud to launch the country’s first provincial lottery and gaming affiliate programme in partnership with, an iconic Ontarian brand.”

Affiliates joining the programme will also receive dedicated support from Income Access’ in-house team of Canadian affiliate managers, with a track-record of growing state lottery affiliate channels.
