Alberta‘s regulators were hoping to have physical sportsbooks up and running in the province by the end of 2022, but it appears that agenda is falling behind schedule.

The Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission announced last December that it was planning on allowing two private operators to run sports betting, with possible mobile extensions, at major professional sports venues across the province — but there has yet to be an announcement on which operators those will be.

The Request For Proposals process was set to close on Jan. 31, but the deadline was extended until Feb. 14 to allow operators more time to submit their bids. Regulators have been silent since the bidding process closed.
