The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has issued a first-quarter payment of $2,989,510 to the City of Windsor for hosting Caesars Windsor.

OLG said the payment up one per cent over last year's first quarter.

To date, Windsor has received more than $11.7 million in non-tax gaming revenue.

These payments are made under an equitable formula in the Municipality Contribution Agreement that determines the fee municipalities receive for hosting an OLG gaming facility and are based on an escalating scale of slot machine revenue that is consistent across all sites in Ontario.
