Policy Amendments – RECTCOG Red Tape Review

March 16, 2021

This bulletin is to advise all racing entertainment centre (REC) facility licensees and registered gaming workers of IMPORTANT AMENDMENTS to the Racing Entertainment Centre Terms & Conditions and Operating Guidelines (RECTCOG). The following RECTCOG policies are effective March 16, 2021.

  • In keeping with the Government of Alberta red tape reduction initiative, these amended policies include changes that provide industry stakeholders with increased flexibility and efficiency in running their operations:
    • Sections 6, 10 and 11 have been amended to remove regulatory requirements surrounding electronic gaming from the RECTCOG. Content being removed may be moved into the Electronic Games – Casino Retailer agreement, electronic games retailer application documents or the Slot Operations Best Practices Manual, as applicable, which streamlines policies to make them more relevant and by placing content where it is more appropriate; and
    • Section 15 has been amended to remove policy requirements from the RECTCOG that would be better housed in the Winner’s Edge Playbook.

Please familiarize yourself with the amended policies, update your RECTCOG as required, and ensure all affected staff are notified of the new requirement(s).

The amended RECTCOG may be accessed on AGLC’s website at

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact AGLC’s Regulatory Service Division or call the AGLC Hotline at 1‐800‐561‐4415.
