All casinos, bingo halls and gaming centers in our province are governed by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) who celebrates 30 years of ‘playing it forward’ this year. BCLC has been providing entertainment for millions of British Columbians and has generated billions in funding for government programs and community projects while creating family-supporting jobs throughout the province.
Today, BCLC operates 17 casinos, seven commercial bingo halls, 18 community gaming centres and nearly 3,800 retail lottery locations. B.C.’s gaming industry provides approximately 37,000 direct and indirect jobs. In 2013-14, BCLC delivered $1.17 billion to the Province, money that supports a range of programs and services, including education and health care.
