Playtime Gaming Inc. is a private company that owns and operates six gaming facilities in British Columbia. In partnership with the BC Lottery Corporation (BCLC), Playtime Gaming offers the latest slot machines along with full-service restaurants, bars, and entertainment.
Playtime Gaming is a committed contributor to the communities we call home. In partnership with the BCLC, Playtime Gaming generates more than $49.5 million each year and employs over 300 local individuals. The net profits from gaming are a vital component of the provincial budget—helping fund health care, education, and other important programs and services.
Playtime Gaming Inc. opened the first four commercial bingo facilities in British Columbia in 1986. Today, the company owns six gaming facilities, making Playtime Gaming the largest and longest-running operator of gaming facilities of this type in the province.
In 2007, Playtime Gaming expanded its operations after the BCLC approved the expansion of bingo-only facilities into Community Gaming Centres—gaming entertainment venues located in markets where the cost of a large-scale casino could not be justified. Community Gaming Centres operate slot machines, electronic table games, and bingo (e-Gaming), along with full-service restaurants and bars.
