Nova Scotia Decision Results in Province Dropping KENO
“After consulting with officials from Provincial Treasury and the Atlantic Lottery Corporation, we have requested that KENO be discontinued on Prince Edward Island. We lost that critical mass with Nova Scotia opting out of this game and we had to look at what that meant to PEI. That process leads us to today’s decision,” Ramsay said.
KENO was introduced in PEI in the spring and has lost approximately $60,000. Last month the government of Nova Scotia announced its plans to no longer offer the game.
