SLGA owns and manages 4,200 VLTs located in licensed taverns and lounges throughout the province. SLGA contracts with Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) to operate the VLT program. Some of the services WCLC provides include training, installation, maintenance of the VLTs and central operating system and providing a toll-free hotline for assistance.
Net revenues from VLTs are split: 85 per cent less expenses go to the government’s General Revenue Fund to help pay for essential programs and services like infrastructure, health care and education. Fifteen per cent goes directly to the businesses which participate in the VLT program.
