Keeping gaming fun through innovation

We all have two people inside of us; the one who lugs an umbrella whenever there is the slightest chance of rain, pops out of bed the moment the alarm clock rings, and skips the popcorn at the movies to keep to a budget. And then there’s the one who doesn’t care about a little rain, hits snooze on the alarm clock, multiple times, and blows their weekend budget and orders the extra-large popcorn with double butter. Of course it’s fun to live in the moment… as long as there are no regrets in the end.

At OLG Slots and Casinos, we are always looking for innovative ways to help bring your fun side and your practical side together. That’s why we are testing the latest gaming innovation in pre-commitment: My PlaySmart.

Have you heard of the idea of pre-commitment?

Well, have you ever placed your alarm clock a few feet away from the bed so you’re forced to get up? Or, how about not buying your favourite snacks when you go grocery shopping, so that you’re unable to binge when the cravings come on? Well those are examples of pre-commitment. And that’s the idea behind the latest PlaySmart innovation currently being tested at OLG Slots at Georgian Downs. When it comes to innovation, OLG Slots and Casinos continues to be a world leader in keeping gaming fun.

After recently bringing to you the new PlaySmart website – Ontario’s most comprehensive gambling education resource – we continue to push forward with My PlaySmart.

My PlaySmart is an innovative personal play management tool which helps you keep track of your play by setting one or both of the following:

1. The amount of time you plan to spend playing daily

2. The amount of money you plan to spend daily

To help track your play, you’ll receive on-screen notifications of the time and money you’ve spent at different approximate intervals throughout your play session: 50%, 90%, 100%, 150% and 200%. That way, you can control your play with informed decisions, which helps keep your gaming Playcation fun.

To set up your My PlaySmart profile at OLG Slots at Georgian Downs, visit the Player Plus desk, kiosk or slot machine.
