Manitoba’s Bet Rite to Distribute Ortiz Gaming’s Video Bingo Games in Canada

Written By Janice Doughtrey

Bet Rite, the Manitoba-based supplier of casino gaming products in Canada has entered into an exclusive distributorship agreement with Florida-based Ortiz Gaming, a leading manufacturer of casino and bingo gaming machines. The deal will see to the distribution of Ortiz Gaming’s Class II and III video products lines throughout Canada, as Bet Rite is a registered and accredited vendor of casino gaming machines and services in all Canadian provinces.

The Ortiz-brand of video bingo machines are accordingly built in accordance with the standards prescribed by the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, to which a Class II category comprise bingo games in any form whether electronically aided or not, and played against other players rather than banked or against the house that offers the games. As a registered Class III games manufacturer, Ortiz Gaming also has authorization to produce a broad category of other games of chance, including slots and lottery-style games. At present, the Florida firm’s library of gaming products comprises mostly video bingo products.

The deal will have Bet Rite distributing popular bingo-themed video game machines such as “Ace Mania,” “Goal Mania,” “Six Bingo,” and “Triple Bonus” throughout the Canadian casino market, any time soon. Reportedly proven as best-sellers in 14 countries located across the Asian, Latin American, and European regions, each of the Ortiz bingo selection allows players to dabble in four bingo games simultaneously. The wagers placed on every bingo card range from a minimum of one (1) up to 20 credits per card, or a total minimum of four (4) credits and a total maximum bet of 80 credits in a single round of bingo game.

The Ortiz brand of bingo play stands in contrast to a multi-play slot game, in which all reels spin at the same time; in a video bingo, players mark bingo cards at each ball drop, similar in an actual setting in which players can place a mark on all four cards based on every number called. Moreover, the Ortiz bingo entertainment has an Extra Bonus Ball feature that is activated after the initial ball draw. The feature creates increased opportunity of achieving a possible win as it allows players to purchase an extra ball up to ten instances, by increasing the bets placed on the cards prior to a purchase. The cost of buying an Extra Bonus Ball is based on the current wager and on the player’s most recent odds at winning.

Bet Rite President Richard Cone, expressed both pleasure and excitement about his company’s partnership with Ortiz Gaming, saying they will be representing the best-in-class product in the Canadian market. He is confident that Canadian customers will rate Ortiz Gaming as a  first-class organization once they get to experience the excellent and exciting quality of the Ortiz brand of electronic bingo products, including the related systems and cabinets. He added that by matching Bet Rite’s reputation and dedication as a leading gaming supplier and service provider in all Canadian gaming jurisdictions, with Ortiz Gaming’s renowned superior products, they would be able to fulfill the demand for fast-paced games as put forward by Canadian players.

Equally pleased is the President of Ortiz Gaming, Maurilio Silva, who commented that their brand of casino games are the ideal match in meeting the sophisticated needs of the Canadian players, as their products are designed to satisfy player interaction, customer service and gaming excitement.
