OLG and the Government of Ontario have approved Ontario Gaming GTA Limited Partnership, the service provider for the GTA Gaming Bundle, to locate a new gaming site in the City of Pickering. The service provider must receive all required municipal approvals before construction can begin.
The technical issue of April 1, 2018 affecting the printing of lottery tickets at lottery retail locations is now fully resolved.
All lottery transactions have resumed, including HIT OR MISS.
OLG is satisfied that the integrity of lottery games and prize redemption were not affected by the technical issue.
We thank our customers for their patience.
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.
