"With the addition of Parlay's gaming suite to CGTV Canada's website, our viewers now have the opportunity to interact with the CGTV brand online," said Allan Weinrib, Senior Director for CGTV Canada. "Since we are the first and only television network in North America to celebrate the casino and gaming lifestyle, it seemed like a natural fit to partner with Parlay to offer free online gaming content." CGTV Canada plans to promote the online games through advertising on its television network and in future print campaigns.

Free-play gambling websites are an increasingly popular form of online entertainment since they let players experience and practice games of chance before wagering cash at land-based casinos. Mainstream brands choose to offer free-play games on their websites in order to provide interactive content, drive website traffic, generate advertising revenue and increase marketing databases.

"Our free-play gaming solution allows web operators like CGTV Canada a hassle-free opportunity to reach new audiences with interactive online content," said Perry Malone, CTO for Parlay Entertainment.
