Problems For Loto-Quebec's Online Poker?

According to a report, Loto-Québec could be facing some pretty serious issues in regard to its proposed online gaming website, which was said to be launching in the fall of 2010.

An October 30 article by the Montreal Gazette cited a spokeswoman for Loto-Québec as recently saying that the launch is still on track. Although, when the venture was announced, it was said that there was a memorandum of understanding in place between Loto-Quebec, B.C. Lottery Corp. and the Atlantic Lottery Corp. for a total of six provinces.

The report states that since the initial announcement, the provinces of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland/Labrador have bowed out of the arrangement. New Brunswick has recently elected a new government and is being provided with "information and options to allow them to make sound policy decisions," according to an Atlantic Lottery spokeswoman.

The article also states that provincially-run poker websites may fall victim of 'liquidity' issues -- available players to make online poker economically viable for the lottery corporations and interesting enough to lure players from established sites.
