back up and running after security issues resolved

Security glitch fixed, but it cost the province Cdn5 million, the province of British Columbia's first venture into regulated online gambling (see previous InfoPowa reports) is back online after a month fixing a technical glitch, and losses estimated at around Cdn5 million.

In a press conference Thursday, the British Columbia Lottery Corporation which operates the site for the provincial government declared that the security glitch, which opened up the personal information of some 134 players, had been detected and resolved, and the site again activated.

PlayNow was taken down shortly after its launch on July 15 when the technical flaw came to light

“It was really a series of unique events,” said Michael Graydon, president and CEO of BCLC, blaming the data crossover on a default setting in the new server software, combined with website “performance issues” and a high volume of traffic.

Graydon told reporters during a conference call that he is confident the publicly owned corporation will make up its losses “as we regain the confidence of our customers.”

The reactivation will be a relief to the 140,000 customers who have online accounts with They will again have access to their PlayNow accounts for the first time in 35 days. Customers had the option to have their accounts closed and a cheque refunded.

    "The 'Billy Goat Curse' has been broken! It's pretty interesting that the Cubs made it to the World Series on the date of the 46th anniversary of William Sianis' death. As the story goes, Sianis was not allowed to enter the stadium with his goat and missed out on seeing the Cubs play in Game 4 of 1945 World Series. Ticked off about it, he 'cursed' the team so they'd never make the World Series again. Good article from CBSSports Odd coincidence? Creator of Cubs 'curse' died on Oct. 22, Cubs win pennant Oct. 22"

    "Really honestly this is all going to come down at the end of the day.  The bonus offerings that casinos offer to sign up, to entice you to deposit, or the loyalty bonuses given for being a regular customer.  This is where 95% of players get caught up because they huge a match bonus or sign up bonus.  Take it without reading the fine print, find out later it was only for sports book, slots, or whatever the restriction was.  Play whatever game they please. Then of course we have the other 5% of the complaints, that come with the standard casino we can do what we want clause.  This is where the other small percentage of folks get caught up mainly.  Whether they won too much at once and the casino wants to point fingers on fraud, or they just don't want to pay. I can see this doing the industry some good, finally painting a clear picture of what your getting into.  Yet at the same time, I don't think this will be a catch all."
