Gambling in Manitoba
The regulatory bodies responsible for gambling businesses and activities in Manitoba are Manitoba Lottery Corporation, Manitoba Horse Racing Commission, and the Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency. The province generally follows all the same rules that work for the rest of Canada, meaning that casino games, lotteries, sports betting, horse racing, poker, bingo, keno, and other entertainment types are legally allowed. Online casinos can’t be operated from Manitoba, but locals and tourists are free to play at any offshore online parlour that accepts them.
