OLG Statement: Temporary Suspension of Lottery Sales

Following a brief suspension of lottery sales this morning, OLG has resumed sales at lottery retailers with the exception of Hit or Miss.

OLG had suspended certain lottery sales as a precautionary measure due to a possible technical issue affecting the printing of lottery tickets which identifies the time a ticket was printed.

OLG continues to investigate the matter. In the meantime, OLG is satisfied that the integrity of lottery games and prize redemption are not affected, and has re-activated all lottery transactions, with one exception being Hit or Miss.

We regret the inconvenience to our customers.

OLG is working as quickly as possible to resolve the issue including the availability of Hit or Miss, and will post regular updates on OLG.ca.
