December 1, 2021
Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC) is pleased to announce two upcoming policy updates to the hours that retailers can offer VLTs, effective December 1, 2021.
- VLTs may be enabled anytime between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 a.m. This is consistent with the operational hours of Class A Minors Prohibited liquor licences; and
- VLTs may also be enabled during those hours on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
With these policy updates, VLT retailers can have their VLTs operational earlier (at 9 a.m.) and/or offer VLTs on Christmas if you choose.
Unless contacted by our retailers, the VLTs will be disabled at 6 p.m. on December 24th and remain disabled on December 25th.
We would ask that an authorized staff member contact Hotline prior to December 22 via email at HotlineRequests@aglc.ca if you are planning to make changes to your VLT operational hours.
