Canadian online casino PlayNow reopens
British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) has reopened its PlayNow online casino. The online gaming site suffered security breaches, which allowed some players to access other players’ accounts. These breaches forced BCLC to shut the site down. The Privacy Commissioner and Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch allowed BCLC to reopen the PlayNow website after five weeks offline.

Michael Graydon, chief executive officer for PlayNow, noted that the site will struggle to re-attract players. “We need to pull out all the stops to regain players’ confidence.” Graydon is convinced that the new security system thoroughly secures the gambling website. “We are confident that the privacy commissioner will return to authorize the new security structure.”
