The Canadian Government has backed the introduction of a bill covering the legalisation of single-event sports betting.
This follows on from an original bill that was introduced earlier by Kevin Waugh MP.
Bill C2-18, also known as the Safe and Regulated Sports Betting Act, will be modified and introduced as an amendment to Canada’s current Criminal Code, the Ministry of Justice has confirmed.
Currently, Sports betting is only legal if bets are placed on at least three or more games. Players will now be given the option to bet on just a single sporting event.
This will give them more freedom to create bets that work for them, while also encouraging players to place bets through approved and regulated companies rather than unregulated options.
This latest move is part of Canada’s drive to bring positive change to the betting landscape.
