Play Alberta shuffles deck to include live dealer

Multiple casino-style table games will offer a live dealer option

Play Alberta, Alberta’s only regulated online gambling website, is expanding entertainment options for users starting tomorrow. In addition to slots, instants and virtual table games, players will now have access to table games with live, professional dealers through the website.

Play Alberta’s live dealer experience will have several different games for players to access, such as Roulette, Baccarat, Infinite Blackjack and Ultimate Texas Hold’em, with plans to add more games in the future. Players will be able to play and interact in real-time through a chat function with professional dealers. The games will be streamed in 1080p quality video to players’ mobile and desktop devices. 

AGLC’s responsible gambling program, GameSense, continues to be an integral part of Play Alberta. The website integrates tools and resources utilized on GameSenseAB.ca and the ability for players to set reality (time) checks and deposit limits that encourage healthy gambling choices.  

Play Alberta is accessible to Albertans over the age of 18 and physically located within the province’s border through browsers on desktop, smart phones and tablets.

Play Alberta’s live dealer function will be provided through Evolution Gaming. The company provides live dealer options to government-run online gaming platforms in British Columbia and Quebec, as well as several other global gaming institutions.

AGLC is mandated to ensure the province’s gaming industry is carefully managed so it can maximize the benefits to Albertans. In 2019-20, over $1.4 billion in net gaming income was generated for the General Revenue Fund, which is used to support programs and services that Albertans rely on every day.
