SAULT STE. MARIE RESIDENT WINS $48 MILLION LOTTO 6/49 GOLD BALL JACKPOT WITH FIRST TICKET EVER PURCHASED

Sault Ste. Marie, ONJuliette Lamour of Sault Ste. Marie is now part of Canadian lottery history after being awarded a $48 million cheque as the sole winner of the LOTTO 6/49 GOLD BALL jackpot from the January 7, 2023 draw.

The 18-year-old university student is the youngest person in Canadian lottery history to win a jackpot of this size. While there have been other 18-year-old lottery winners across Canada in recent years, no one has won as much as Juliette.

Another amazing element to Juliette’s story is that she won the multi-million-dollar jackpot on her very first lottery purchase. “I just turned 18 and my grandfather suggested I buy a lottery ticket for fun,” explained Juliette during a winner’s celebration at OLG Headquarters in Sault Ste. Marie. “When I went to the store, I wasn’t sure what to ask for because I had never bought a ticket before, so I called my dad who told me to buy a LOTTO 6/49 Quick Pick. I still can’t believe I hit the GOLD BALL jackpot on my very first lottery ticket!”

Juliette forgot about the ticket until news started to spread that the winning LOTTO 6/49 ticket worth $48 million was purchased in the Soo. She was at work with her colleagues when they told her the winning ticket was sold in the city. That’s when she remembered she had a ticket for the draw. Her co-worker offered to check her ticket on his OLG App. When he scanned the ticket, the ‘Winner/Gagnant’ jingle started to play, and ‘Big Winner’ was displayed on the phone. “My colleague fell to his knees in disbelief. He was yelling, in fact everyone was yelling that I won $48 million! I didn’t understand what was going on at first. I couldn’t process this news. We kind of made a scene in the store that day!”

The shock and excitement continued as Juliette called home with the unbelievable news. “Because I was crying – happy tears – of course, my mom couldn’t understand what was going on. Thankfully my dad was able to piece together that I won the lottery jackpot! I knew I couldn’t focus on work and my boss told me I could go home, but my mom wanted me to stay and finish my shift! My colleagues called out ‘come and get her,’ and my parents eventually came to pick me up.”

As Juliette was trying to process the enormity of the lottery prize, she was comforted knowing that her dad is a financial planner.  While the majority of the money will be put away for now in carefully chosen investments as they develop a bigger plan for it, Juliette remains committed to her dream of becoming a doctor and coming back to practice in Northern Ontario. “I wanted to go to medical school before winning the lottery. Now I can pursue this dream without worrying about grants or loans. As a member the Garden River First Nation community, I was eligible for educational assistance programs, but I no longer need those resources which means someone else in the community can benefit from that funding. I really want to come back to this area as a doctor so I can give back to my community.”

When asked about any immediate “bucket list” plans, Juliette says she is focused on finishing her studies for this school year and then will start to plan some summer adventures. “Once school is done, my family and I will pick a continent and start exploring. I am not a “sit on the beach” type of person. I want to experience different countries, study their history and culture, try their food, and listen to their language.”

Juliette says when she started to tell the news about her lottery win to those closest to her, she received some words of wisdom that she will never forget, “‘Money doesn’t define you, it’s the work you do that will define you.’ While I am so excited about the opportunities that lie ahead, I feel comforted knowing I am surrounded by the grounding love of my family. They will be with me on every step of this incredible journey.”

The winning LOTTO 6/49 ticket was purchased at Circle K on McNabb Street in Sault Ste. Marie.

LOTTO 6/49 offers players a chance to win two multi-million dollar jackpots every Wednesday and Saturday, for the same $3 per play.

The Classic Draw offers a fixed $5 million jackpot for every draw, while the Gold Ball Draw guarantees a $1 million prize, or the growing jackpot that starts at $10 million and can exceed $60 million. Click here for more information about the new LOTTO 6/49.

OLG PRESENTS FIRST GAMING REVENUE PAYMENT TO WASAGA BEACH FOR HOSTING NEW PLAYTIME CASINO WASAGA BEACH

WASAGA BEACH, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is excited to issue the first quarterly gaming revenue payment of $152,138 to the Town of Wasaga Beach, for its role in hosting the new Playtime Casino Wasaga Beach. This first payment is based on casino revenue generated from November 23, 2022, to December 31, 2022, the first 39 days the casino operated during OLG’s third quarter.

During a grand opening event at the new Playtime Casino Wasaga Beach, OLG’s President and CEO Duncan Hannay, along with Brian Saunderson, MPP for Simcoe-Grey, presented Wasaga Beach Mayor Brian Smith with the initial cheque for $152,138, representing the city’s share of proceeds generated by the province’s newest gaming facility.

“I would like to congratulate Gateway Casinos on the opening of this exciting new casino in Wasaga Beach” said Brian Saunderson, MPP for Simcoe-Grey. “This entertainment destination is a $34 million investment that will have a significant impact on the regional economy, will add to the robust tourism sector, and provide hundreds of new, local jobs.”

“We are very happy to host Playtime Casino Wasaga Beach, which offers a new entertainment destination for the region and is creating new jobs in our community,” said Wasaga Beach Mayor Brian Smith. “And, we are pleased to work with OLG and Gateway Casinos to use this new revenue stream to improve the quality of life of the residents of Wasaga Beach.”

“It is a real privilege to be able to partner with communities like Wasaga Beach in working with our service providers to deliver capital investment, create jobs, and offer world-class entertainment in a safe and secure environment, said OLG’s President and CEO Duncan Hannay.  “In a little over a month, we have seen how the new Playtime Casino Wasaga Beach has already begun to contribute to the life of the region.  This is, indeed, an important way that we at OLG continue to ‘Play for Ontario.’”

The new Playtime Casino Wasaga Beach was built by Gateway Casinos and Entertainment Limited, the service provider for the Central Gaming Bundle, as part of OLG’s land-based gaming modernization.

“Gateway is extremely proud to celebrate the grand opening of Playtime Casino Wasaga Beach. We have been warmly welcomed by this community from the day we announced our intention to locate here.  We believe Wasaga Beach has a great future and our investment here supported by OLG is now showing dividends not only in the 140 new jobs we have created, but in establishing a year-round entertainment attraction for both visitors and residents of the Beach.” said Carrie Kormos, Chief Marketing & Communications Officer.​

Over the past seven years, service providers have invested an estimated $1.8 billion in private sector capital investment across the province.  Since 2017, these investments have led to the development and opening of seven new casinos, including Playtime Casino Wasaga Beach, one planned development and additional gaming expansions and non-gaming amenities.

OLG supports safe play at casinos and wants to keep the fun in the game. That’s why OLG is proud to be a leader in promoting responsible gambling with our globally recognized PlaySmart program.

We embed our award winning PlaySmart program in each of the province’s casinos through our PlaySmart Centres, including at Playtime Casino Wasaga Beach. These centres are staffed, on OLG’s behalf, by employees of the Responsible Gambling Council, one of the most reputable responsible gambling organizations in Canada.

OLG is proud to share proceeds of casino gaming with local communities, contributing to economic development, infrastructure and jobs.  Payments to host communities are part of OLG’s commitment to Ontario – 100 per cent of OLG’s profits are reinvested in the province.

These payments are based on Municipality Contribution Agreements, using a graduated scale of gaming revenue at the hosted site which is consistently applied across Ontario.

Under the agreement, municipalities receive:

  • 25% on the first $65 million of slot revenue;
  • 0% on the next $135 million of slot revenue;
  • 5% on the next $300 million of slot revenue;
  • 5% on the slot revenue above $500 million;
  • 0% of table game revenue; and
  • 0% of sportsbook revenue (if applicable).

Payments are provided quarterly (the third quarter ran from October 1 to December 31, 2022). The amount of these payments may vary within a given year depending on if/when a gaming site reaches these graduated revenue benchmarks.

Since 1994, host communities have received more than $1.93 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.

TORONTO, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) is thrilled once again to have been selected for Forbes’ prestigious list of Canada’s Best Employers. This year, OLG moved up the ranks, placing in the top 15 per cent on the list of companies recognized in 2023.

Christal said when she told her husband, his jaw literally dropped. “He was speechless! We shared the news with the rest of our family, and they were so excited.”

RICHMOND HILL WINNER DREAMS TO THE MAX WITH A $60 MILLION LOTTO MAX JACKPOT WIN

Toronto, ONCamellia Kazemi Talachi of Richmond Hill is still mapping out exactly what she will do now that she is Ontario’s newest multi-millionaire after winning the $60 million LOTTO MAX jackpot from the November 29, 2022 draw. But she knows that she wants to use part of her windfall to create employment.

Camellia, who works in sales, was overwhelmed with emotions as she collected her $60 million LOTTO MAX cheque from the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. Camellia has been a regular lottery player for the last four years and while normally choosing her own numbers, she switched to QuickPicks a few months ago, which ultimately won her the $60 million jackpot!

Despite being a regular lottery player, she failed to realize the jackpot winning ticket was sold in her community. “I stopped at a gas station and decided to check my LOTTO MAX ticket, unaware the $60 million winning ticket was sold in Richmond Hill. I gave my ticket to the clerk, and when the winning jingle started playing, I knew I won something but didn’t know how much until OLG called the store and told me it was $60 million!”

While Camellia was trying to process what just happened, her mother was outside waiting in the car. Inside the store, Camellia was crying happy tears. “I saw my life pass before my eyes as I stood there in shock. I kept thinking, ‘Is this real?’ I couldn’t concentrate and started to shake. The clerk, who was very excited for me, helped calm me down so I could go back to my car without worrying my mom that something was wrong.”

Camellia then drove 30 minutes with her mother without saying a word about the incredible news. When they arrived at home, she mentally prepared to tell her family, “I stopped to pray for a moment and then, what felt like an out of body experience, I said the words, ‘I am the big lottery winner in Richmond Hill!’ My sister thought I was kidding. But when I started jumping up and down and cheering, she started to do the same. The entire family was overjoyed for me!”

As Camellia navigates what to do with the money, she has many ideas, and they involve sharing her good fortune. She wants to use this windfall to create employment. “I want to be an entrepreneur and create jobs, but I need to take the time to figure out how to do this sustainably.” She is also an art lover and wants to see the historic masterpieces of the world, so she plans to do a lot of travelling with her family. “A win this big needs to be shared and who better to share it with than the people I love the most.”

Even with the $60 million cheque in hand, Camellia is still pinching herself, “This seems so surreal. It’s a blend of happiness filled with wonderful possibilities of the unknown!”

The winning ticket was purchased at the Bayview Kitchen Food Fair on Bayview Ave in Richmond Hill.

LOTTO MAX players in Ontario have won over $7.5 billion since 2009, including 96 jackpot wins and 842 MAXMILLIONS prizes, right across the province. LOTTO MAX is $5 per play and draws take place on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The father of one says he thought he won $1,000 at first and when he checked his ticket at the store, he discovered his win was much bigger. “I was so shocked. I was expecting to put $1,000 in the bank and now I’m a millionaire,” he smiled.

Minsoo plans to treat his wife and decided with her what to do with this win. “I might take a trip to Florida with my family,” he concluded.

LOTTO MAX players in Ontario have won over $7.5 billion since 2009, including 96 jackpot wins and 842 MAXMILLIONS prizes, right across the province. LOTTO MAX is $5 per play and draws take place on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The winning ticket was purchased at Galleria Supermarket on Hampshire Gate on Oakville.

OLG ISSUES THIRD QUARTER GAMING REVENUE PAYMENTS TO MUNICIPAL PARTNERS

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is pleased to make third quarter (October 1 – December 31) payments totaling $32,385,278 to 29 communities that host gaming facilities.

So far, during OLG’s fiscal year (April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023), these 29 communities have received $113,919,071.

These payments to host communities are based on a formula consistently applied across all gaming sites in Ontario using a graduated scale of gaming revenue at the hosted site.

“Payments through OLG’s Municipality Contribution Agreement provide host gaming communities with the support they need to fund programs and critical infrastructure to improve the lives of residents and families,” said Peter Bethlenfalvy, Minister of Finance.  “With these revenues, municipalities are able to build better communities with more opportunities to live and work.”

OLG is proud to share proceeds of casino gaming with local communities, contributing to economic recovery, infrastructure development and job creation.  Payments to host communities are part of OLG’s commitment to Ontario – 100 per cent of OLG’s profits are reinvested in the province.

Over the past seven years, service providers have invested an estimated $1.8 billion in private sector capital investment across the province.  Since 2017, these investments have led to the development and opening of seven new casinos, one planned development and additional gaming expansions and non-gaming amenities.

Since 1994, host communities have received more than $1.93 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.

OLG is a crown agency that contributes to a better Ontario by delivering great entertainment experiences for our customers.

BE “GIFT SMART” THIS HOLIDAY SEASON: LOTTERY GIFTS ARE FOR GROWN-UPS ONLY

TORONTO, ON – During the holiday season, as we prepare to share gifts with family and friends, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) would like to take this opportunity to again remind parents and adults that all lottery products, including INSTANT tickets, are a form of gambling and are not suitable gifts for children and minors.

If you decide to buy lottery gifts for friends and family, please ensure the recipients are at least 18 years of age and older.

There is extensive free information and resources available dealing with youth and gambling:

  • The Gambling, Gaming and Technology Use (GGTU) program at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) supports addictions and mental health service providers through continuing professional development, digital tools and resources, and facilitating knowledge mobilization activities related to problem gambling, video gaming, and internet addiction.
  • The Responsible Gambling Council (RGC), an independent non-profit organization focused on the prevention of problem gambling in Canada and worldwide, with information on Teens or Young Adults and gambling.

Also, OLG’s PlaySmart.ca can help parents understand the facts when it comes to games, and concepts like odds and randomness. There’s also a “Finding Help” section with links to the support resources above and more.

OLG has supported the National Council of Problem Gambling and McGill University’s Holiday Campaign for many years, which encourages lotteries in Canada, the United States and around the world to promote the important message that lottery products are not for kids.

JOHN TAVARES TEAMS UP WITH PROLINE TO PLAY FOR ONTARIO

TORONTO, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is proud to announce that John Tavares has been named an ambassador for OLG’s PROLINE brand.

OLG and the Mississauga-born captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs both know what it means to play for the home team; Tavares has spent his career supporting his hometown both on and off the ice, while 100% of profits from PROLINE+ and PROLINE at retail go back to hometowns across Ontario.

“If you grew up in Ontario and are a sports fan like me, then you know that OLG’s PROLINE products are synonymous with responsible sports betting and gaming entertainment,” said John Tavares. “I am thrilled to be the brand ambassador for OLG and PROLINE because of its long-standing connection to sports in Ontario – I am sure I have played in arenas built in part with funds from OLG – and its overall commitment to reinvesting in the province, which benefits all Ontarians.”

Tavares is the first major sports league athlete to sign with OLG. As part of the partnership, he will engage fans at public appearances, promotional events and on social media in support of PROLINE.

“As a lifelong sports fan, bringing on someone of John Tavares’ calibre is very exciting,” said Dave Pridmore, OLG’s Chief Gaming Officer. “Having John as our PROLINE brand ambassador is a great fit given his deep connection to Ontario and his leadership on and off the ice. John was born and raised in the province, captains the legendary Maple Leafs and started his own foundation to give back. OLG’s social purpose is also to give back, as 100% of OLG’s profits are reinvested in the province to improve the quality of life for all Ontarians.”

Announcing this ambassadorship comes on the heels of OLG announcing other partnership deals with the NHL, NFL, MLB, and the NBA. Under each multiyear deal, OLG becomes an official partner for sports betting for each league on the PROLINE+ digital sports betting platform as well as PROLINE at retail lottery outlets across Ontario.

OLG ISSUES SECOND QUARTER GAMING REVENUE PAYMENTS TO MUNICIPAL PARTNERS

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is pleased to make second quarter (July 1 – September 30) payments totaling $38,113,757 to 28 communities that host gaming facilities.

So far, during OLG’s fiscal year (April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023), these 28 communities have received $81,533,793.

These payments to host communities are based on a formula consistently applied across all gaming sites in Ontario using a graduated scale of gaming revenue at the hosted site.

“Revenue from OLG’s Municipality Contribution Agreements supports host communities so they can invest in programs and services that benefit everyone, from neighbourhood parks to local festivals,” said Peter Bethlenfalvy, Minister of Finance. “These payments help to improve the quality of life and make Ontario a vibrant and exciting place to live, work and play.”

OLG is proud to share proceeds of casino gaming with local communities, contributing to economic recovery, infrastructure development and job creation.  Payments to host communities are part of OLG’s commitment to Ontario – 100 per cent of OLG’s profits are reinvested in the province.

Over the past seven years, service providers have invested an estimated $1.8 billion in private sector capital investment across the province.  Since 2017, these investments have led to the development and opening of six new casinos, with one under construction, one planned development and additional gaming expansions.

Since 1994, host communities have received almost $1.9 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.

OLG LAUNCHES “MY PLAYBREAK” SELF-EXCLUSION PROGRAM

TORONTO, ON – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is continuing to expand its globally-recognized responsible gambling (RG) program, PlaySmart, with the launch of My PlayBreak. Our new enhanced and rebranded self-exclusion program offers customers more flexibility and choice — whether they want to take a break from play at an Ontario casino, Charitable Gaming Centre, or on OLG.ca.

“OLG prioritizes player health and is focused on continuous improvement of its RG programming,” said Alexandra Aguzzi, OLG’s Senior Vice President, Brand, Communications and Sustainability. “My PlayBreak is just one of the RG tools in OLG’s sophisticated and unmatched PlaySmart portfolio that is integrated across multiple product lines to help customers create and maintain healthy habits that enable a lifetime of sustainable play.”

My PlayBreak offers several new features, including defined, renewable term lengths of 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, 4 years, and 5 years — as well as optional check-in calls from Responsible Gambling Council (RGC) staff to allow for more timely, effective, and relevant referrals to treatment and support services.

In addition, My PlayBreak has a simplified Return to Play process, which provides clear steps for individuals to return to play or renew their participation when their self-selected term ends. OLG is also making changes to its policies related to term breach violations in a move to a more supportive approach that aligns to the voluntary focus of the new program.

“RGC commends OLG on its launch of My PlayBreak as part of its globally recognized responsible gambling program — PlaySmart,” said Shelley White, CEO, Responsible Gambling Council. “This new program offers a more person-centred approach that is not only more accessible but will also support positive outcomes for those participating. RGC is proud to provide services to OLG in the day-to-day operations of PlaySmart Centres on-site at 29 casinos in Ontario which also support 37 charitable gaming centres. We look forward to continuing to work with OLG and gaming operators to maximize player uptake of OLG’s leading responsible gambling program.”

The enhanced self-exclusion program responds to personal preferences and facilitates stronger connections to treatment and support services. My PlayBreak also reinforces and clarifies participant responsibilities, while removing barriers to register in the program. More information about My PlayBreak can be found at playsmart.ca/myplaybreak.

OLG IS TAKING TIFF ON TOUR

TORONTO – Roll out the red carpet, Ontario! Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is giving back to three cities across the province with TIFF on Tour, recreating a smaller scale version of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in Campbellford, North Bay and Windsor.

OLG’s TIFF on Tour premiere events will bring the magic of this iconic film festival to these three communities, creating an authentic movie premiere experience complete with a red carpet, great opportunities for selfies and pictures, delicious free movie snacks along with many more surprises in store.  These special movie premiere events aim to bring local residents together, while furthering OLG’s commitment to giving back to communities across Ontario.

In addition to taking TIFF on Tour, OLG is also front and centre in the heart of TIFF with OLG Cinema Park for the duration of the festival. OLG Cinema Park will be set up at David Pecaut Square at the corner of King St W & Ed Mirvish Way. Don’t miss the free nightly screening at 10pm of select TIFF Classic films and free movie snacks.

“We’re so pleased to be launching OLG’s TIFF on Tour to bring the magic of this great film festival to communities outside Toronto – which wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to experience all the excitement of TIFF,” says Alexandra Aguzzi, OLG’s Senior Vice President, Brand, Communications and Sustainability. “OLG’s partnership with TIFF is a great reflection of our shared belief in supporting local arts & culture, and Ontario communities as a whole.”

Each TIFF on Tour event will be screening North of Normal, a film by Toronto Director, Carly Stone, which will be premiering at this year’s TIFF. North of Normal  is based on the 2014 memoir of the same name by Cea Sunrise Person. The film centres on Cea Sunrise Person’s  unconventional childhood living in the Canadian wilderness without the creature comforts of modern life such as running water and electricity.

“Our mission at TIFF is to transform the way people see the world, through film. Through this partnership with OLG we will bring that mission to life in a powerful way,” said Elisabeth Burks, VP, Partnerships, TIFF. “TIFF On Tour recognizes the power of entertainment, arts & culture to spark connections and conversations within our communities. We’re incredibly proud to partner with OLG to bring meaningful experiences and the magic of TIFF to these three cities.”

GET READY FOR THE NEW LOTTO 6/49! TWO MULTI-MILLION-DOLLAR JACKPOTS, SAME $3 PRICE

Toronto, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), along with our lottery partners from across Canada, is excited to launch a new, bigger LOTTO 6/49, starting with the September 14, 2022 draw. The new LOTTO 6/49 will now offer players a chance to win TWO multi-million dollar jackpots every Wednesday and Saturday, for the same $3 per play.

The main draw, where players select their numbers or play quick pick, will become the new Classic Draw and will offer a fixed $5 million jackpot for every draw, with additional prizes for matching as few as two numbers on one selection.

The new LOTTO 6/49 sees the previous $1 million Guaranteed Prize Draw become the new Gold Ball Draw. In an exciting twist, the Gold Ball Jackpot Draw guarantees that the winner will take home either $1 million, or the growing jackpot that starts at $10 million and can exceed $60 million.

Click here for more information about the new LOTTO 6/49 Gold Ball Draw.

“What better way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the iconic LOTTO 6/49 lottery than by bringing more excitement to our players with the new growing Gold Ball Jackpot Draw, while maintaining some of the classic LOTTO 6/49 features players love,” said Duncan Hannay, OLG’s President and CEO. “This exciting product innovation has been a great collaboration with OLG’s provincial lottery partners across Canada, ensuring that our national lottery games always bring customers the fun they want, with the big jackpots to match!”

Before the game changes take effect, LOTTO 6/49 players will see a special draw on Saturday, September 10, 2022. This is the last draw of the current LOTTO 6/49. To provide a fresh start to the enhanced game, there will be a clear-out of all jackpot prizing on that draw. There will be no carry-over from the September 10th draw to the September 14th draw.

As always, the jackpot will be awarded to any selections that match all six main numbers on one line. But for this draw only, if there is no winning 6/6 selection, the jackpot amount will be divided among winners in the 5/6+Bonus, 5/6, and 4/6 prize categories.

Next Wednesday’s draw will kick off the new LOTTO 6/49, with a $5 million Classic Draw jackpot and a $10 million Gold Ball jackpot available to be won.

Since 1982, LOTTO 6/49 has grown to become one of Canada’s best-known lotteries and best-known brands, generating more than $66 Billion in sales, and delivering more than $33 billion in prizes. From small prizes to the biggest Jackpots, there have been more than 1.6 billion winners across all of Canada over the last four decades.

This world-class 5,000-seat entertainment centre is essential in a competitive, tourism-driven centre like Niagara Falls. The OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino will host big name shows and artists which will draw even more visitors to this exciting destination.

“We are excited about this new phase of our partnership with the OLG,” says Richard Taylor, President, Niagara Casinos. “The OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino will increase visitation to Niagara, extend hotel stays and enhance our customer experience.  We have a fabulous lineup of acts in store for Niagara Falls and look forward to announcing the official grand opening performance in the coming weeks.”

“Niagara Casinos has always had amazing performances and this partnership with OLG will continue to raise the bar,” says Cathy Price, Vice President of Marketing, Niagara Casinos. “From old time rock ‘n roll to new-age acts and gut-busting comics, the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino is going to be the jewel of Niagara’s entertainment scene.”

As OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino prepares for its grand opening later in the Fall, audiences will get to preview some of the great amenities of this incredible new facility when shows and artists take to the stage in the weeks ahead. The new entertainment centre boasts state of the art sound and lighting systems, along with unobstructed views from every seat which will provide a truly immersive experience for every audience member.

LOTTO MAX “DREAM BARS”: ICE CREAM GIVES YOU A TASTE OF THE MILLIONAIRE LIFE

TORONTO, ON – Ontarians can now get a taste of the millionaire life with an exclusive ice cream bar! Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and LOTTO MAX have partnered with Toronto-based artisanal ice cream shop, Creamery X, and food scientists to create LOTTO MAX Dream Bars, unexpectedly luxurious, one-of-a-kind ice cream flavoured like things millionaires can afford such: Rare Oil Painting, Private Island, Designer Handbag and Grail Sneaker.

To develop each delicious yet unique LOTTO MAX Dream Bar flavour, OLG and Creamery X worked with leading food scientists at the University of Guelph to identify the exact flavour notes of each “dream item” and choose precise ingredients to map those flavours:

  • The Rare Oil Painting flavour tastes like a modern masterpiece that incorporates olive oil, fresh mid-tannins and a hint of oil paint;
  • The Private Island flavour includes delicious notes of seawater: salty, sandy and fresh with Pacific Ocean Konbu seaweed, rounded out with lingering hints of lychee and orange blossom, giving the taste of owning your own tropical island;
  • The Designer Handbag tastes like rich leather, tannins of smoky notes throughout and finishes with a vibrant floral note which one can find at designer boutiques;
  • The Grail Sneaker flavour has a distinct, fresh-out-of-the-box sneaker taste with hints of chocolate and even rubber.

The limited-edition LOTTO MAX Dream Bars are available only at LOTTO MAX Dreamery pop-ups happening in select locations across the province. Each LOTTO MAX Dream Bar purchase also comes with a scannable LOTTO MAX free play code. The millionaire lifestyle has never tasted so sweet!

“The LOTTO MAX Dreamery is a way for us to encourage Ontarians to dream to the max” said Kim Clark, VP Lottery & Customer Success at OLG. “With the return of festivals and concerts this summer, it’s the perfect time to give people a taste of winning big with these delicious, one-of-a-kind LOTTO MAX Dream Bars. We are especially proud to provide 100% of the proceeds made from LOTTO MAX Dream Bars sales to a very worthy charity, reflecting of our commitment to giving back to Ontario.”

To support OLG’s mission of reinvesting in the province to make communities stronger, we have partnered with Friends of Ruby. Based in Toronto, Friends of Ruby provides 2SLGBTQIA+ youth with a supportive community, drop-in services and programming, mental health counselling, case management, and housing. Friends of Ruby will receive 100% of the proceeds from LOTTO MAX Dream Bar sales.

Speaking to the partnership with OLG and LOTTO MAX, Creamery X co-founder Bonnie Gallant, said “Our brand is all about making bold flavours that you won’t find anywhere else, so when we were given the opportunity to partner with OLG to create these uniquely luxurious LOTTO MAX Dream Bars, we didn’t even think twice. These flavours truly taste like the millionaire lifestyles they were inspired by – while also being delicious! We can’t wait to hear what people think of this incredible sensory experience.”

OLG LAUNCHES NEW SPORTS BETTING APP

TORONTO, ON – The Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation has launched a new sports betting app that combines the current bet building functionality for in-store purchases with direct online wagering into one integrated app to create an exclusive new betting experience for Ontario sports fans.

The new app is designed for both retail and online players and is the first of its kind to be introduced to the Ontario gaming market. Players can place and pay for live bets in real-time on the new PROLINE+ or choose to build bets and generate a barcode on the app, which can be used to purchase PROLINE tickets at nearly 10,000 retail locations across the province.

“OLG continues to expand our unique and integrated product offerings for our valued customers,” says Dave Pridmore, OLG’s Chief Digital & Strategy Officer. “The new app gives players the unprecedented ability to make a sports bet directly on the app or at retail using the bet builder functionality. This latest product enhancement reinforces our commitment to convenience and choice for our players while also offering a competitive sports book with the confidence, trust, and goodwill of the OLG brand.”

The new app brings the intuitive functionality of the PROLINE+ website into a new environment and is free to download, secure, and easy to access on iOS and Android devices. The new app offers players the ability to wager on the full suite of sports betting markets and in-game betting available on PROLINE+.

Like all OLG products, the new app is designed to promote responsible play. Tools are built into the app to help establish and maintain healthy play habits, along with access to PlaySmart.ca, our globally recognized responsible gambling program. Customers can use these tools to set spend and loss limits for example, customizing the play experience to serve their personal preferences.

Ontario residents who are 18 or older can build bets to buy tickets in store using PROLINE, while customers must be 19 or older and have a registered OLG.ca account to place and pay for bets on PROLINE+ through the app.

The launch of the new app follows recent high-profile sports partnership announcements with the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL and launches ahead of the start of the NFL season and other major events like the US Open, MLB World Series and the World Cup.

Like all OLG products, one hundred per cent of the proceeds generated through PROLINE and PROLINE+ are reinvested in the province to help improve the quality of life for all Ontarians. When you play with PROLINE and PROLINE+, you play for Ontario.

OLG SUPPORTS WINDSOR CASINO WITH OPERATING AGREEMENT EXTENSION

TORONTO, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is pleased to have entered into an agreement to extend its existing contract with the current operator of the Windsor casino, Caesars Entertainment Windsor Limited.

OLG supports casino operators, which are key contributors to Ontario’s economic recovery, delivering entertainment for casino customers while creating jobs and investments in communities.

The agreement extends the contract, under the same terms and conditions, by one year to August 2025. OLG has the option to further extend the term for a minimum of six months and up to a maximum of 12 months, ending no later than August 2026.

Necessary closures and capacity restrictions over the past two years have impacted the casino business in Ontario, placing a premium on operational continuity and stability.

Through competitive procurement processes, OLG has selected service providers to operate gaming bundles across Ontario. The timing of a procurement for the Windsor Gaming Bundle will be addressed at a future date.

OLG ISSUES FIRST QUARTER GAMING REVENUE PAYMENTS TO MUNICIPAL PARTNERS

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is pleased to make first quarter (April 1 – June 30) payments totaling $43,420,036 to 28 communities that host gaming facilities.

These payments to host communities are based on a formula consistently applied across all gaming sites in Ontario using a graduated scale of gaming revenue at the hosted site.

“OLG’s land-based casinos are once again providing an important stream of revenue to gaming host communities through Municipality Contribution Agreements,” said Peter Bethlenfalvy, Minister of Finance.  “Municipalities rely on this funding to maintain essential programs and services, and to help improve the lives of people across Ontario.”

OLG is proud to share proceeds of casino gaming with local communities, contributing to economic recovery, infrastructure development and job creation.  Payments to host communities are part of OLG’s commitment to Ontario – 100 per cent of OLG’s profits are reinvested in the province.

Over the past seven years, service providers have invested an estimated $1.8 billion in private sector capital development across the province.  Since 2017, these investments have led to the development and opening of six new casinos, with two more currently under construction. In addition, a number of existing casinos have been enhanced and/or expanded.

Since 1994, host communities have received more than $1.86 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.

OLG WINS BIG AT CANNES LIONS

Toronto, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is thrilled to announce that our recent LOTTO MAX Dream Drop marketing campaign has won two Silver Lions and two Bronze Lions at this year’s Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The prestigious annual event brings together creative leaders from around the globe to learn, network, and celebrate the world’s most captivating ideas.

In March 2022, OLG, with the help of the creative agency FCB, partnered with Toronto-based fashion designer, Mr. Saturday, on a limited-edition streetwear collection that also provided customers with a Bonus Code for a year’s worth of LOTTO MAX tickets and appealed to a broad range of Ontarians. The campaign built up anticipation and momentum for the drop, selling out within days – some pieces within minutes – and outperformed all campaign objectives, including new registrations and tickets sales.

“We are immensely proud of and congratulate the OLG team and our partners, whose creative talents, synergy, and hard work brought this incredible marketing campaign to life,” said Duncan Hannay, OLG’s President and CEO. “The awards this campaign has garnered at Cannes Lions serve as proof that OLG is a powerhouse of creativity and innovation, always dedicated to bringing products to market in new and exciting ways.”

The LOTTO MAX Dream Drop campaign was shortlisted for nine awards, and won in four categories:

  • Silver Lion for Creative Commerce (Engagement: Customer Acquisition and Retention)
  • Silver Lion for Direct (Ambient Media)
  • Bronze Lion for Design (Communication Design: Promotional Item Design)
  • Bronze Lion for Brand Experience and Activation (Retail Experience and Activation: Customer Acquisition and Retention)

In addition to FCB and Mr. Saturday, OLG partnered with MediaCom, Hill + Knowlton Strategies, Cruel, Common Good, and Grayson Music on the LOTTO MAX Dream Drop campaign. Equity, diversity, and inclusion were at the core of this campaign, with one hundred per cent of OLG’s profits from the initiative going to BLACK HXOUSE, a creative incubator that empowers BIPOC individuals. This was OLG’s second submission and first win at the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.

At OLG, we play for Ontario. One hundred per cent of proceeds are reinvested into the Province to support provincial priorities and help build strong communities.

OLG ISSUES FOURTH QUARTER GAMING REVENUE PAYMENTS TO MUNICIPAL PARTNERS

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is pleased to make fourth quarter (January 1 to March 31) payments totaling $21,099,247 to 28 communities that host gaming facilities.

These payments to host communities are based on a formula consistently applied across all gaming sites in Ontario using a graduated scale of gaming revenue at the hosted site.

OLG is proud to share proceeds of casino gaming with local communities, contributing to economic development, infrastructure and jobs.  Payments to host communities are part of OLG’s commitment to Ontario – 100 per cent of OLG’s profits are reinvested in the province.

“Municipality Contribution Agreements are an important source of funding for municipalities, and help deliver critical services that the people of Ontario enjoy,” said Peter Bethlenfalvy, Minister of Finance. “Land-based casinos create good, local jobs and play an important role in supporting in our economy, and the government will always support a strong and vibrant gaming sector in Ontario.”

The health and safety of customers, employees and host gaming communities remains a priority for OLG and its service providers.  Gaming sites in Ontario were subject to public health restrictions through most of the fourth quarter, including closures for a period of 26 days, which had an impact on gaming revenues and the payments to host municipalities.  Casinos were able to open at full capacity as of February 17, 2022, and all remaining public health restrictions were lifted as of March 21, 2022.

Service providers have invested an estimated $1.8 billion in private sector capital development across the province.  Since 2017, five (5) new casinos, including Cascades Casino North Bay, have been built in Ontario and a number of other casinos have also been recently enhanced and/or expanded.

During the fiscal year 2021-22, host communities have received $82,942,969 in non-tax gaming revenue.  Life to date, host communities have received more than $1.8 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.

OLG is a crown agency that contributes to a better Ontario by delivering great entertainment experiences for our customers. Acting in a socially responsible way, OLG conducts and manages land-based gaming facilities; the sale of province-wide lottery games; Internet gaming; and the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres.

OLG CONTINUES SUPPORT FOR ONTARIO LOTTERY RETAILERS

Toronto, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is pleased to announce that it is extending its current “Support Local” initiative of returning all profits from the activation and sale of $3 INSTANT CROSSWORD and $3 INSTANT BINGO to our valued retailers. This initiative, designed to thank our valued lottery retail partners for their hard work, will now run until April 30, 2022.

“We want to thank Ontario’s lottery retailers, many of whom are hard-working small business owners, for their exceptional service to Ontarians across the Province,” said Peter Bethlenfalvy, Minister of Finance. “The vibrant network of lottery retailers we have here in Ontario is a significant contributor to our economy, drives growth and supports local jobs that are needed now more than ever.”

Approximately $6.6 million in additional commissions is expected to be paid to retailers throughout the duration of this incentive program. Should sales exceed projections, retailer commissions will further increase.

“In the last 12 months, we’ve been proud to run several unique Lottery Retailer Initiatives that have returned profits to our valued lottery retailers on the activation and sale of a variety of lottery products,” said Duncan Hannay, President and CEO of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation. “Our lottery retail partners play a major role in helping us raise awareness and drive sales of lottery games, which in turn helps us generate revenue that benefits Ontarians and communities across Ontario.”

“Lottery retailers play a key role in serving and attracting more lottery customers at thousands of points of sale throughout Ontario,” said Dave Bryans, CEO of the Ontario Convenience Store Association. “The small businesses I represent welcome this incentive which will, in turn, help drive economic recovery and growth in communities province-wide.”

In January 2021, OLG’s “Support Local” initiative returned all profits to retailers on the sale of our INSTANT PLINKO game for a limited time period. Following the success of this initiative, OLG ran similar retailer commission incentive programs for such games as LIGHTNING LOTTO and INSTANT TOP UP. OLG will continue to explore other initiatives with the goal of driving higher retail sales, which would also result in greater commissions for our retailers.

OLG is proud to say that its standard blended retailer commission rate is the highest in Canada, providing record retailer commissions of more than $330 million last fiscal year, representing a 10 per cent increase since 2020.  OLG’s retailer commissions are paid to more than 5,300 retail owners, big and small, which contribute to job creation and local business development.  In addition, 100 percent of OLG proceeds are reinvested into provincial priorities to improve the quality of life for all Ontarians.

When you play OLG lottery games, you play for Ontario.

OLG RELEASES LOTTO MAX “DREAM DROP”: A COLLABORATION WITH MR. SATURDAY

(March 25, 2022) Toronto, Ontario, – It’s the only clothing collection that’s also your lottery ticket for a year! Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and LOTTO MAX have partnered with Toronto-based brand Mr. Saturday to release their first ever collaboration within the apparel space called LOTTO MAX “Dream Drop.” Each piece in this limited-edition, 400-piece collection is scannable, just like a real lottery ticket and is good for one $5 LOTTO MAX ticket per week, for one full year (a $260.00 CAD value). Imagine if the hoodie you’ve just purchased from the LOTTO MAX Dream Drop collection could win you the $70 million LOTTO MAX jackpot? Now, that’s Dreaming to the Max!

“With the LOTTO MAX Dream Drop campaign, we want to engage young adults in Ontario to dream to the max.” says Kim Clark, VP Lottery and Customer Success, OLG. “With its short-term nature, edgy creative, and exclusive fashion, this LOTTO MAX campaign with Mr. Saturday appeals to their affinity for fashion and exclusivity. We are also supporting important causes through this campaign, which is core to OLG values and important for this audience. Mr. Saturday’s fashion will enable us to reach the hearts of younger adult Ontarians and give back at the same time.

Mr. Saturday designer Joey Gollish says of the LOTTO MAX partnership, “I was immediately intrigued by the idea of working on something that at once felt so far removed and so close to fashion. I wanted to create something that mixed the rich nostalgia of the lottery’s history with the future of where it’s going and what it can do. “Thank you for dreaming” is the physical manifestation of dreaming  what we’d do if we won the lottery. In some ways, we have – it’s exciting to be able to work on something of this scale and give back to an organization that helped me get to where I am and consistently creates opportunities for young creatives.”

To celebrate the launch of LOTTO MAX “Dream Drop,” Lotto Max and Mr. Saturday will host a pop-up shop and event, open to the public from March 25-27, 2022, with the full collection available to shop in-person to customers living in Ontario, Canada, age 18+.

The price will remain the same at $3 per play, and players will still be able buy their tickets for Wednesday and Saturday draws in the same ways they’re used to. Odds to win any prize (on the Classic Draw) will remain the same at 1 in 6.6 per $3 play. Finally, players will still be able to either select their own six numbers from 1 to 49 or play by Quick Pick and receive a 10-digit number with every play.

Since 1982, Lotto 6/49 has generated more than $65 billion in cash sales and paid out more than $32 billion in prizes to players across the country.

ONTARIO LOTTERY RETAILERS GETTING MORE SUPPORT FROM OLG

Toronto, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) wants to thank the thousands of valued retail partners across the province for their continued hard work during these challenging times. To show its appreciation, OLG is giving all the profits from sales of $3 INSTANT CROSSWORD and $3 INSTANT BINGO that take place between March 1 and March 31, 2022 to the retailers that activate these tickets.

“We want to thank our retailers for their continued partnership and exceptional service to lottery customers across the province, especially during this unprecedented time,” said OLG’s President and CEO, Duncan Hannay. “Our vibrant network of retailer owners plays a major role in helping us raise awareness and drive sales of our lottery games, which in turn helps us generate revenue that benefits the Province and communities across Ontario.”

In the last 12 months during the pandemic period, OLG has run several unique Lottery Retailer Initiatives that have provided increased retailer commissions on the sale of a variety of lottery products. OLG launched the “Support Local” initiative in January 2021 that returned all profits to retailers on the sale of our INSTANT PLINKO game for a limited time period.  Based on the success of the INSTANT PLINKO initiative, other similar commission incentive programs followed for such games as LIGHTING LOTTO and INSTANT TOP UP. OLG will continue to explore other initiatives with the goal of driving higher retail sales, which would also result in greater commissions for our retailers.

OLG is proud to say that its standard blended retailer commission rate is the highest in Canada. In the last fiscal year, OLG provided $330 million in total retail commissions for its more than 5,300 retail owners – big and small. This money is reinvested in their community through jobs, infrastructure, and local priorities. In addition, 100 percent of OLG proceeds are reinvested into provincial priorities to improve the quality of life for all Ontarians.

When you play OLG lottery games, you play for Ontario.

OLG AND ITS EMPLOYEES CONTRIBUTE $120,000 TO UNITED WAY

 TORONTO, ON – OLG and its employees are contributing close to $120,000 to support the important work of the United Way in communities across Ontario.

As part of its support for the United Way, OLG launched a new virtual promotion in July 2021 called “Collecting for the Community”, which included a commitment by OLG of $50,000 in funds for United Ways across Ontario.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led OLG to evolve its local partnerships in order to continue to support and add value to the festivals and events taking place in communities across Ontario. ‘Collecting for the Community’ was intended to replicate the same fun and engaging experience that was offered at on-site activations at OLG sponsored events prior to the pandemic.

From July 19, 2021 to January 3, 2022, players 18 years and older who visited CollectingfortheCommunity.ca could play the free activity, and through their participation, could secure additional funding for their local United Way and benefit their community.

As part of the promotion, each of the 27 United Ways in Ontario is guaranteed to receive $1,000, but player participation in the ‘Collecting for the Community’ promotion increases the local contribution.

“Giving back is at the heart of all we do and we are proud of the role we play in making Ontario stronger,” said Duncan Hannay, OLG’s President and CEO. “OLG and our employees have a long, meaningful history with the United Way in Ontario. It is an important community partner that supports vulnerable populations through numerous charities and community assistance programs.”

In addition to the $50,000 contributed through the ‘Collecting for the Community’ promotion, OLG’s employee-driven 2021 United Way fundraising campaign raised close to $70,000.

For more than three decades, OLG employees have been dedicating their time and money to an annual fundraising effort to support the United Way. The most recent campaign, which ran through November 2021, was a big success with OLG employees raising more than double their original fundraising goal.

“As the pandemic continues to impact communities across Ontario, our friends and neighbours facing challenges – and the frontline community workers working so hard to serve them – need our support like never before,” said Daniele Zanotti, United Way Greater Toronto President and CEO. “Thank you to OLG corporate and staff for once again standing with community and demonstrating that we truly are in this together.”

To mark the important demonstration of OLG’s commitment to United Way, OLG President and CEO, Duncan Hannay, and Daniele Zanotti, President and CEO of United Way Greater Toronto took part in a virtual cheque presentation. You can find video of the event through the following link:

Collecting for the Community Promotion

As part of the promotion, OLG committed a total of $50,000 in funds to United Way locations across Ontario. Each of the 27 United Way locations is guaranteed to receive $1,000, but player participation in ‘Collecting for the Community’ increases the local contribution.

NEW PROLINE NOW AT OLG LOTTERY RETAIL LOCATIONS ACROSS THE PROVINCE

TORONTO, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is now offering sports bettors a complete gaming experience with new and exciting sports betting products at retailers under the popular PROLINE brand.

Players can now place single event wagers on a variety of sports at approximately 10,000 retailers across Ontario. Through the new PROLINE at retail outlets and OLG’s online PROLINE+ platform, OLG is the sole provider of legal in-store and online sports betting in the province.

Along with single event wagering, the new PROLINE at retail locations gives sports bettors:

  • New sports, events, and markets to place bets on
  • Dynamic, competitive odds
  • System bets that remove the “all-or-nothing” approach of traditional parlay bets
  • Novelty betting like awards shows
  • Same-day payouts at retail locations for wins of less than $1000 (at the retailer’s availability)
  • As always, no sign-up or account is required to play in-store

Players can build their bets using the new PROLINE Bet Builder App and complete the transaction by presenting the App-generated barcode to the retailer. Players can also place their bets using selection slips found at the retailer as before.

“It is a big day for sports bettors in Ontario,” says OLG President and CEO Duncan Hannay. “OLG is giving our customers a new and exciting sports gaming experience. For the first time, legal single event wagering will be available to sports bettors in Ontario who want to bet on the Super Bowl LVI and many other events. Bets can be made in a safe and secure betting environment in locations hosted by our valued lottery retail partners.”

OLG is the only safe, regulated, and legal option with 100 percent of OLG proceeds reinvested in Ontario. OLG offers a range of entertainment choices at local casinos, online with various gaming and lottery products, and at retail with lottery products, including the new PROLINE sports betting products.

OLG has offered parlay sports betting products at retail locations for almost 30 years, beginning with the existing legacy PRO•LINE product launched in 1992 followed by POINT SPREAD in 1996 and PROPS and POOLS in 2004.

“We are especially proud and excited to be bringing the new PROLINE to Ontarians through our almost 10,000 retail partners at convenience stores, gas, grocery and drugstores across the province,” adds Kerstin Lack, Chief Lottery and Customer Officer at OLG. “This will bring an exciting new offering to customers and support our front-line partners, who have been so instrumental in supporting their communities throughout the pandemic.”

“The launch of the new PROLINE is exciting news for our retailers selling lottery products,” says Dave Bryans, CEO of the Ontario Convenience Stores Association (OCSA).  “New products are always welcomed from OLG, especially the new PROLINE, which will attract more customers wanting to join in on the new popularity of sports betting to our retailers. More importantly, I believe it provides the small businesses I represent with a stimulus that will help contribute to economic recovery in communities province wide.”

The new PROLINE products are expected to generate more player interaction at retail locations, contributing to retailer commissions and economic recovery in Ontario. Stay tuned for details about future launches such as proposition betting at retail outlets.

The new PROLINE and PROLINE+ offer the only retail and online sports betting products that give back to Ontario with 100 percent of OLG proceeds reinvested into provincial priorities to improve the quality of life for all Ontarians. When you play on either platform, you play for Ontario.

OLG promotes responsible gambling across all its gaming products. We feature online player tools and educational materials from OLG’s globally recognized PlaySmart program, which received the highest level of certification from the World Lottery Association.

You must be 18 years of age or older to play the new PROLINE at retail locations and 19 years of age or older to register and play PROLINE+ on OLG.ca.

OLG RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF CANADA’S BEST EMPLOYERS FOR 2022

TORONTO, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) is thrilled to have been selected for Forbes’ prestigious list of Canada’s Best Employers 2022 — and to be among the top 20 per cent of a select group of companies nationwide with more than 500 employees.

“It is an honour to be recognized with a place on the Forbes Best Employers List and to know that so many of our employees would recommend OLG as a great place to work,” said Duncan Hannay, OLG’s President and CEO. “For the best and brightest Ontarians looking for purpose in their work, OLG is a top choice employer. We’re an exciting gaming and entertainment company transforming our culture and the way that we work to ensure that we deliver great experiences for our customers, while delivering meaningful benefits to the people of Ontario.”

This is the first year OLG has been on the Canada’s Best Employers List — ranking 53 overall out of 300 award recipients.

Forbes and Statista Inc. selected the Canada’s Best Employers 2022 through an independent survey applied to a sample of more than 10,000 employees working for companies with more than 500 employees in Canada. The evaluation was based on direct and indirect recommendations from employees who were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. Employee evaluations also included other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively.

“What makes this award so special is that it is employee driven” said Nancy Kennedy, OLG’s Senior Vice President of People and Culture. “Our employees live by OLG’s truths, which include doing good for Ontario and playing as one team. An OLGer respects, supports and values their colleagues and celebrates different perspectives and backgrounds. That is what makes OLG such a great place to work.”

OLG ISSUES THIRD QUARTER GAMING REVENUE PAYMENTS TO MUNICIPAL PARTNERS

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is pleased to make third quarter (October 1 to December 31) non-tax gaming revenue payments totaling $30,510,269 to 27 municipalities that host gaming facilities.

OLG makes payments to host communities under the Municipality Contribution Agreements, using a prescribed formula consistently applied across all sites in Ontario that is based on a graduated scale of gaming revenue at the hosted site or sites.

All gaming sites were opened throughout the third quarter with rigorous public health and workplace safety measures. Despite capacity restrictions being lifted on October 25, the continued spread of COVID-19 had an impact on gaming revenues.

“We are happy that host gaming municipalities received payments this past quarter through Municipality Contribution Agreements,” said Peter Bethlenfalvy, Minister of Finance. “Once public safety restrictions are lifted again, land-based casinos will continue to play a vital role in the economic recovery of our communities.”

As a result of new time-limited provincial health measures, gaming sites were temporarily closed to the public on Wednesday, January 5 at 12:01 a.m.  This closure is expected to remain in effect until at least January 26, 2022.  The health and safety of customers, employees and host gaming communities remains a priority for OLG and its service providers.

So far this fiscal year, host communities have received $61,843,722 in non-tax gaming revenue.  Life to date, host communities have received almost $1.8 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.

OLG is a crown agency that develops world-class gaming entertainment for the Province of Ontario.

GIFT RESPONSIBLY: LOTTERY TICKETS AREN’T CHILD’S PLAY

TORONTO, ON – During the holiday season, as we prepare to share gifts with family and friends, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) would like to take this opportunity to again remind parents and adults that all lottery products, including INSTANT tickets, are a form of gambling and are not suitable gifts for children and minors.

Lottery products may be great gift ideas for the holidays or for any special occasion, but not for children and youth. It is important that parents and adults understand the proven risks and impacts associated with underage gambling. Please only buy lottery gifts for friends and family who are 18 years of age and older.

There is extensive free information and resources available dealing with youth and gambling:

  • The YMCA Youth Gambling Awareness Program (YGAP) is a free service funded by Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to raise awareness among youth of gambling risks, how to make informed decisions, and healthy, active lifestyles.
  • The Gambling, Gaming and Technology Use (GGTU) program at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) supports addictions and mental health service providers through continuing professional development, digital tools and resources, and facilitating knowledge mobilization activities related to problem gambling, video gaming, and internet addiction.
  • The Responsible Gambling Council (RGC), an independent non-profit organization focused on the prevention of problem gambling in Canada and worldwide, with information on Teens or Young Adults and gambling.

Also, OLG’s PlaySmart.ca can help parents understand the facts when it comes to games, and concepts like odds and randomness. There’s also a “Finding Help” section with links to the support resources above and more.

OLG HOMETOWN SOUNDS: BEHIND THE SCENES WITH MUSIC’S BIGGEST STARS AND ONTARIO’S BRIGHTEST TALENTS

TORONTO, ON – Music fans know that some of the best talent is found in their own hometown – whether it be a big city or small community. Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), Universal Music Canada and Bell Media’s ETALK, are bringing you closer to A-list talent while showcasing and celebrating some great Ontario-based bands, duos and solo artists on the cusp of stardom with a unique music experience called ‘OLG Hometown Sounds.

‘OLG Hometown Sounds’, which will be featured on ETALK, gives viewers access to exclusive, intimate conversations with some incredible artists about the Ontario music scene, their careers, and the importance of local venues like Toronto’s Axis Club (formerly The Mod Club), The Opera House, and the Phoenix Concert Theatre.

‘OLG Hometown Sounds’ begins airing October 27, 2021 and starts off with Grammy Award-winning artist Alessia Cara. The Brampton native talks about her musical journey from hometown venues to the top of the music charts, and performs songs from her just-released album, In The Meantime. She highlights some of her current favourite acts and past collaborators, like Toronto duo, Locals Only Sound, who weigh-in on the importance of those first shows and the impact an artist like Cara has had on their career, and more.

On November 10, ‘OLG’s Hometown Sounds’ will bring insights and songs from Grammy-Award winning, multi-platinum band Imagine Dragons, who started playing small stages and now fill arenas. With their latest album, Mercury – Act 1 out now, they are no strangers to Ontario stages. This episode also tracks buzz-worthy indie band Valley, who are making waves online and around the world with their huge sound and pop-infused approach.

And on November 24, Grammy nominated, multi-platinum selling recording artist and songwriter, Julia Michaels, who dropped her long-awaited debut album Not In Chronological Order this past spring, will be featured alongside Scarborough-born, history-making JUNO Award-winning R&B artist, and soulful songstress Savannah Ré.

“OLG is always proud to support local music talent and the grassroots music industry in Ontario,” said Randy Weyersberg, OLG Vice President of Brand Management and Marketing. “We are especially pleased to work with Universal Music Canada’s SHED Creative and Bell Media to showcase the communities, local venues and experiences that have shaped these artists at all levels of their success. We know that when these artists play their music for us – they play for Ontario.”

“SHED Creative has a longstanding partnership with OLG and we’re thrilled to bring Hometown Sounds to life alongside the team at Bell Media,” said Dave Harris, Managing Director, Shed Creative for Universal Music Canada. “By bringing artists together to share stories about their communities and their favourite venues and the impact these ecosystems have on their art and career, this series gives the ultimate inside-look at what makes our music communities thrive. We customized this collaboration to enable our partners to tap into top talent from across Universal Music Canada’s roster while leaning into OLG’s continued support of local Ontario communities!”

A special contest is also part of the ‘OLG Hometown Sounds’ series. Register at OLGHometownSounds.ca beginning October 28, 2021 for a chance to win some great prizes such as exclusive merchandise or unique experiences from the featured artists. Must be 18 years of age or older to participate.

OLG ISSUES SECOND QUARTER GAMING REVENUE PAYMENTS TO MUNICIPAL PARTNERS

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is excited to make second quarter (July 1 to September 30, 2021) non-tax gaming revenue payments totaling $31,333,453 to 27 municipalities which host gaming facilities.

“Our government is pleased that land-based casinos have reopened safely and are contributing to our provincial economy again,” said Peter Bethlenfalvy, Minister of Finance. “Host communities are once again benefiting from local employment and the financial proceeds that support vital services through Municipality Contribution Agreements.”

OLG makes payments to host communities under the Municipality Contribution Agreements, using a prescribed formula consistently applied across all sites in Ontario that is based on a graduated scale of gaming revenue at the hosted site or sites.

Under the province’s reopening framework, with rigorous public health and workplace safety measures in place, gaming sites were able to resume operations beginning on July 16, 2021.  Casino re-opening dates were determined by each service provider in consultation with OLG, depending on their readiness and ability to operate under the mandatory restrictions.  All gaming sites in Ontario resumed operations by August 16, 2021.

The reopening of gaming sites will afford OLG’s service providers the opportunity to advance their ambitious development plans that will support the long-term vibrancy and excitement of the casino experience in Ontario for years to come.

Life to date, host communities have received more than $1.76 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.

PROLINE+ POISED FOR PLENTY OF PUCK ACTION AS NEW HOCKEY SEASON STARTS TONIGHT

TORONTO, ON – The day Ontario hockey fans – and sports bettors – have been patiently waiting for has finally arrived! A new hockey season starts tonight with two games on the schedule and both are available for wagering on Ontario’s only legal online sportsbook, PROLINE+.

A recent survey of Ontario sports bettors indicated the NHL is the most popular league to bet on with 61 per cent of respondents saying it was their number one for wagers. And it may come as no surprise that in that same survey, Toronto led the pack as the favourite to win this season – 23 per cent picked the blue and white to come out victorious at the end of the cup race. Action on PROLINE+ to this point supports this trend as 27 per cent of bets on what team will be league champs have been placed on Toronto.

The survey indicated  Edmonton’s Connor McDavid as most likely to take the trophy for league MVP with 38 per cent of the votes, followed by Toronto’s Auston Matthews in second at 28 per cent. PROLINE+ players are leaning overwhelmingly in favour of McDavid – he currently owns 94 per cent of the early bets. Matthews is a distant second with just 3 per cent of bets to date.

Whether it’s pre-match betting on the winner of the game or placing a wager on which team is next to score, OLG’s PROLINE+ not only offers dynamic, competitive odds but is also accessible from any device. PROLINE+ also promotes responsible gambling and features player tools and educational materials from OLG’s globally recognized PlaySmart program.

Since PROLINE+ launched in late August, over 3.6 million bets have been placed on the site. Playing PROLINE+ is playing for Ontario as 100 per cent of proceeds are reinvested in provincial priorities that strengthen communities and improve the quality of life for all Ontarians. An active OLG.ca account is required and players must be 19 years of age or older and located in Ontario.

PROLINE+ SURVEY FACT SHEET

  • Ontario’s only legal online sportsbook PROLINE+ launched on August 27, allowing players to make a legal bet on a single event for the first time ever in Ontario, among many other sports betting options.
  • To further understand the player mindset, PROLINE+ surveyed 1,000 Ontario-based sports bettors about their views on online betting, the advancement of legal single event betting in Canada and their thoughts and opinions on betting on sports in general.
  • The survey revealed that 62%, almost two-thirds, of Ontario sports bettors say they’re now more likely to make a single-event sports bet because of its recent legalization in Canada.
  • This is ringing true for PROLINE+, as single event bets account for 77% of all wagers to date on the online sportsbook.
  • They care about giving back too – more than half of those surveyed say they’re more likely to use PROLINE+ to bet on sports knowing that 100% of the proceeds are invested in provincial priorities that improve the quality of life for all Ontarians.
  • OLG has already processed more than $6 million in bets on PROLINE+ – signalling that Ontario bettors have been eagerly awaiting a trustworthy option to lay down their bets.
  • The survey found that over half of respondents say betting on a game adds fun to the live sports experience, especially during the COVID-19.
  • In fact, 24% of those surveyed said they will attend more sports games in the next 12 months than before the pandemic, and 27% of those surveyed said betting on their favourite team during COVID-19 helped off-set the fact that they couldn’t go to games.
  • In total, just under half of Ontario’s sports bettors place a bet at least once a month, with almost one in four wagering at least once a week.
  • The survey confirmed a growing number of women are getting into the game – women make up about 1/3 of sports bettors in the province.
  • While the majority of bets are made on men’s professional sports, PROLINE+ features plenty of options to bet on women in sport which supports the growing interest in this betting segment.

Other key findings include:

  • Bad experiences placing bets: One in three frequent sports bettors (defined as those who bet once a week or more) in Ontario say they have had a bad experience using an online app or website to bet in the past.
  • Ontario sports bettors are excited to bet safely: 51% of frequent bettors said they feel good about PROLINE+, which promotes responsible gambling and includes player tools and educational materials from OLG’s award-winning PlaySmart program.
  • Conversation fodder: 66% of frequent bettors say that betting on sports gives them something to talk about with their friends.
  • Great source of entertainment: More than half of sports bettors in Ontario say betting is a great source of entertainment and can make watching games more fun.
  • A “novel” idea: 37% of bettors and 44% of frequent bettors are interested in Novelty betting on award shows and other pop-culture events.

NEW PROLINE+ SURVEY SHOWS 62% OF ONTARIO BETTORS ARE KEEN TO PLACE LEGAL SINGLE BETS

TORONTO, ON – This fall sports season is unlike any other for Ontario’s sports fans who now have a legal option to bet online on single event sports with PROLINE+ from OLG. A new survey for PROLINE+ conducted ahead of launch shows that almost two-thirds of Ontario sports bettors are now more likely to make a single-event sports bet because of its recent legalization in Canada. This has proven to be true since the launch of OLG’s new digital sportsbook as, in fact, single event bets account for 77% of all wagers to date. The survey also shows more than half of bettors are keen to place those bets on OLG’s PROLINE+ platform because all of the proceeds are invested in provincial priorities that improve the quality of life for all Ontarians.

“We’re excited to be first to market bringing Ontarians what they told us they’ve been looking for – a trustworthy, best-in-class platform that complements their sports watching experience,” said David Pridmore, OLG Chief Digital and Strategy Officer. “Since we launched our online sportsbook PROLINE+ in late-August, we’ve already processed more than $6 million in bets, and we’re expecting even more interest in the platform as more sports and leagues start new seasons and as our player base continues to scale.”

The PROLINE+ survey also found that 37% of bettors and 44% of frequent bettors (defined as those who bet once a week or more) were interested in betting on novelty markets which include award show results like those that will be presented this weekend for the best in television entertainment. Ontarians say they’re keen to bet safely using an option like PROLINE+, which promotes responsible gambling and includes player tools and educational materials from OLG’s award-winning PlaySmart program.

The survey found one in three frequent sports bettors in Ontario said they had a bad experience placing a bet on a grey market online app or website in the past. Just under half of Ontario’s sports bettors place a bet at least once a month, with almost one in four wagering at least once a week. Just over a quarter of all sports bettors, and half of frequent bettors, said they bet more often during COVID-19 than before the pandemic, in part because it helped offset not being able to go to games.

Other key findings from the survey include:

  • Player satisfaction: More than half of Ontario sports bettors surveyed said betting is a great source of entertainment and makes watching games more fun.
  • Conversation fodder: 45% of respondents say that betting on sports gives them something to talk about with their friends.
  • Giving back: More than half of those surveyed said they’re more likely to use PROLINE+ to bet on sports knowing that 100% of the proceeds will stay in Ontario to help fund government priorities such as health care.
  • Engagement: 47% of frequent bettors wouldn’t watch as many games if they weren’t betting.
  • COVID-19 impact: 24% of those surveyed said they will attend more sports games in the next 12 months than before the pandemic, and 27% of those surveyed said betting on their favourite team during COVID-19 helped off-set the fact that they couldn’t go to games.

About PROLINE+: PROLINE+ is available online on any device and features dynamic, competitive odds, new sports and markets and new ways to bet, including single event and live betting. There are thousands of betting options available at any time, including all major North American sports leagues and some major international sports.

An active OLG.ca account is required, and players must be 19 years of age or older and located in Ontario.

About the PROLINE+ Survey:  The survey was conducted by Hill and Knowlton Strategies on behalf of OLG. A total of 1,000 Ontario residents were surveyed between August 16-23, 2021. The sample was randomly drawn from LEO, Leger’s panel of potential survey respondents. All respondents were of legal gambling age and had ever bet money on sports either online or with a sports lottery at a store/kiosk. An associated margin of error for a probability-based sample of this size would be ±3%, 19 times out of 20. Frequent bettors are defined as respondents who said they bet on sports once a week or more.

NEW OLG APP IS THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

TORONTO, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is adding more choice and convenience to the way Ontarians “play” with the launch of the new OLG App. The free app is easy to use and great for getting right to the game, be it in the online casino or the lottery lobby. Better still, the ever-popular ticket scanner feature is included as well so players can experience their winning moment anywhere in the province. The OLG App is being released for Android devices this week and will be followed shortly by an iOS compatible version.

“OLG.ca is the trusted digital platform of choice in Ontario and now our players can have that same confidence in the OLG App, whether they’re making a deposit, playing their favourite game or scanning their tickets to check for winners,” said Duncan Hannay, OLG President and CEO. “With over one million registered players on OLG.ca, we are intent on continuing to deliver world-class gaming entertainment for Ontarians while driving forward as a leader and an innovator in the digital space.”

Customers can access jackpot information and the scanner for lottery tickets without having to log in, but an OLG.ca account is required to make lottery purchases, play casino games or make deposits and withdrawals in the app. Users of OLG’s current lottery app are encouraged to register for an OLG.ca account as their existing login information is not compatible with the new app. New players can sign up now to receive up to $300 in total casino bonus funds.

OLG’s award-winning PlaySmart program tools are at players’ fingertips within the app so they can get the facts before they play and set personal limits to keep gambling fun and entertaining. Players must be 18 or older to play lottery and 19 or older to play casino games on the app.

The new app is a collaboration between OLG and Bede Gaming and is a one-stop shop to buy lottery tickets and play many casino games offered on OLG.ca, check tickets bought in-store and find game and jackpot information. Bede provided the digital solution for the new OLG.ca and player platform launched by OLG in late 2020 which has seen hundreds of thousands of players register since that time.

“The launch of the new OLG App is the latest in a series of exciting product launches for OLG and Bede. We are extremely proud of the App, having worked hand in hand with OLG, and look forward to giving Ontarians a first-class mobile experience,” said Sarah Hitchcock, Bede Gaming Executive Vice President (North America).

OLG continues to grow in the digital space as a customer-obsessed company and launching the new OLG App reinforces our competitive position by increasing access and interaction with our products while keeping our customers’ needs at the centre of our innovation. One hundred per cent of proceeds from OLG.ca and the new OLG App are reinvested in provincial priorities that improve the quality of life for all Ontarians.

WELCOMING CUSTOMERS AND EMPLOYEES BACK TO ONTARIO CASINOS & CHARITABLE GAMING CENTRES

Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and its gaming service providers are pleased to welcome back customers and employees to casinos and charitable gaming centres across Ontario as part of Step 3 of the provincial re-opening plan. The health and safety of customers, employees and the host gaming communities remains, as always, a priority for OLG and our service providers as these gaming facilities begin to resume business after so many months.

“OLG is pleased to see the Province’s popular gaming facilities reopen to provide world class entertainment, dining options, and other amenities to adult Ontarians in a safe and secure environment,” said Duncan Hannay, OLG’s President and CEO. “In partnership with our service providers, OLG is proud to contribute to the re-opening of the economy with health and safety as a top priority.”

All gaming proceeds are reinvested in Ontario’s quality of life including health, education and community-based infrastructure. Casinos and charitable gaming centres also create jobs locally, bring capital investment, help local charities and result in payments to host municipalities.

The re-opening of these gaming facilities is subject to enhanced safety measures such as:

  • Limiting capacity to not more than 50 per cent indoors and 75 per cent outdoors while maintaining physical distancing requirements;
  • Requiring all employees and guests to wear a face covering in indoor settings;
  • Adopting face coverings in certain outdoor public settings;
  • Screening guests with health-related questions upon entering the facility;
  • Positioning hand sanitizing stations throughout the gaming facility;
  • Offering enhanced cleaning and sanitization; and
  • Installing plexiglass barriers between employees and guests.

These requirements are aligned with the guidance of provincial and federal public health authorities.

For casinos and charitable gaming centres, re-opening is contingent on adopting a safety plan that is reviewed by local public health officials and submitted to the regulator, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). Re-opening dates for the casinos and charitable gaming centres are set and communicated by each service provider.

Please contact the casino or charitable gaming centres closest to you for more information on reopening details and health and safety requirements.

OLG AND POLLARD BANKNOTE SIGN TEN-YEAR TICKET PRINTING CONTRACT

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has recommitted to its long-standing and valuable partnership with Pollard Banknote Limited (Pollard Banknote), signing a 10-year contract to print INSTANT lottery tickets. The agreement, which includes an additional 5-year option to extend through 2037, will see OLG order more than two billion tickets over the term and will create new jobs in Ontario.

OLG’s previous contract with Pollard resulted in the establishment of a ticket finishing plant in Sault Ste. Marie with a commitment of 100 full-time employees. Since then, Pollard has been able to hire nearly 20 additional employees in the Sault due to the productivity of the plant. This new agreement will see that complement increased to a total of 140 full-time employees, providing significant benefit to the local economy.

“OLG is pleased to be furthering our strong partnership with Pollard Banknote, securing the continuity and sustained growth and development of our INSTANT lottery business. For well over a decade we’ve worked together to find ways to deliver value for money for the people of Ontario while creating world class product for our players,” said Duncan Hannay, President and CEO of OLG. “We’re happy to be working with a partner like Pollard to create employment opportunities in this province. The new positions at the Sault Ste. Marie plant demonstrate our shared commitment to supporting economic recovery in the communities where we operate our businesses.”

“Pollard Banknote is very proud of our long-standing partnership with OLG which has been productive and mutually beneficial. We have worked hard to help OLG increase sales and offer an expanding selection of innovative products and services to meet the players’ evolving preferences,” said Doug Pollard, Co-Chief Executive Officer, Pollard Banknote. “Additionally, we are thrilled that the leadership and hard work of our dedicated staff at our Sault Ste. Marie plant are being rewarded with this contract extension.”

“I am so happy to highlight the collaboration between OLG and Pollard Banknote. As I always say, we work better when we work together,” said Ross Romano, MPP for Sault Ste. Marie. “Partnerships like this are critical to our community’s economic recovery and prosperity. Partnerships such as this are not only bringing more business into our community and growing our economy but are also providing significant employment to Sault Ste. Marie.”

The services provided by Pollard Banknote have enabled OLG to nearly double the revenue of the INSTANT business since becoming its primary printer in 2007. Pollard also supplies innovative product solutions like OLG’s QuickTicket, available in select retail locations across Ontario.

OLG’s INSTANT lottery business, led by the popular BINGO, CROSSWORD and CASH FOR LIFE games as well as the exciting THE BIG/BIGGER SPIN products, achieved sales of $1.4 billion in Fiscal 2020.

Q:        WHY HAVE YOU STOPPED OFFERING THE CASINO SPORTS GAMES AT CASINO NIAGARA AND/OR CAESARS WINDSOR?

A:        The Casino Sports games were created to make the border casino sites more competitive with U.S. casinos at a specific point in time. OLG recognizes that the best Casino Sports offering we’ve been able to put forward for many years still falls short of what most players would prefer to see as a casino sportsbook experience. We are removing the current games with the hope that a superior product may be able to be offered in the casinos in the near future.

Q:        WILL YOU REPLACE THEM WITH SOMETHING NEW AT THE GAMING SITES?

A:        We are removing the current games with the hope that a superior product may be able to be offered in the casinos in the near future.

In the meantime, Sports lottery players can continue to wager on the retail PRO•LINE lineup of games at over 10,000 lottery sales locations across Ontario.

Q:        WHAT DO I DO IF I HAVE A WINNING TICKET FOR A CASINO SPORTS GAME? HOW DO I CLAIM IT?

A:        Casino Sports players with outstanding prize claims can mail them to the OLG Prize Centre for processing.

OLG is making an exception to the conditions for claiming Casino Sports prizes and will accept claims for tickets issued on or after March 16, 2019 that are received by the OLG Prize Centre by September 15, 2021.

OLG DELIVERS VALUE TO THE PEOPLE OF ONTARIO IN AN UNPRECEDENTED YEAR

TORONTO, ON – Despite the material impact of the COVID-19 pandemic to land-based gaming operations, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) continues to work hard to deliver value for the benefit of the province.

“The accomplishments achieved under these circumstances are a testament to the resiliency of the organization and the people of OLG,” says Peter Deeb, Chair of OLG’s Board of Directors. “Apart from delivering continued profitability in the fiscal year, OLG’s new President and CEO, Duncan Hannay, is leading an innovative strategy to drive the next horizon of growth. This will include job-creating investments in land-based gaming, improved lottery performance through innovation in product and distribution, and transformative development of the digital gaming channel — positioning OLG to actively support economic recovery in Ontario.”

Protecting the health and safety of employees and customers remains a priority for OLG. Extensive safeguards were established early in the pandemic at corporate offices, the OLG Prize Centre and casinos across the province to ensure safe workspaces and customer-facing operations. OLG also proudly utilized its lottery terminals in thousands of local retail outlets to communicate provincial messaging in support of public health efforts.

In this unprecedented environment, OLG achieved the following milestones in the last 12 months:

  • The modernization of nearly 10,000 new lottery terminals across Ontario and an upgrade to the lottery network to enable new experiences at retail points of sale;
  • The launch of the new OLG.ca, which has meaningfully exceeded growth objectives set for iGaming and iLottery revenue and profitability;
  • The introduction of the exciting LIGHTNING LOTTO game — a new favourite with players;
  • The launch of $5 INSTANT PLINKO® with record sales made possible through a special “Support Local” initiative that returns all profits of this game to retailers for three months; and,
  • The payment of lottery prizes to OLG’s valued customers, totaling $1.8 billion from April 2020 to January 2021.

In addition, OLG also continued to deliver value-for-money for the Province through stakeholder supports, responsible fiscal management and good governance:

  • More than $100 million achieved in durable cost savings through new efficiencies and spending deferrals;
  • Early repayment of $60 million drawn from the provincial credit facility; and,
  • Continued support for horse racing under the Long-Term Funding Agreement, and for Ontario First Nations under existing agreements.

“OLG continues to move forward consistent with the Government’s mandate to maximize efficiency and earnings, in addition to reducing unnecessary costs and financial waste at every opportunity,” adds Deeb.

OLG is on track to deliver a positive return to the Province for 2020-2021 despite the ongoing closure of many of the 27 provincial casinos due to emergency measures necessary to protect the health and safety of Ontarians. OLG’s net profit to the province will continue to help fund health care, education, and other priorities that benefit the people of Ontario. With a new business year approaching, OLG is intent on responsible growth in new channels with new products to deliver value for business partners, communities and all Ontarians.

BE “GIFT SMART” THIS HOLIDAY SEASON: LOTTERY GIFTS ARE FOR GROWN-UPS ONLY

TORONTO, ON – Like many Ontarians this time of year, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has holiday traditions. While some of those traditions may change this year due to the pandemic, we do want to take this opportunity to again remind parents and adults that all lottery products, including INSTANT tickets, are a form of gambling and are not suitable gifts for children and minors.

Lottery products may be great stocking stuffers, but not for children and youth. It is important that parents and adults understand the proven risks and impacts associated with underage gambling. Please only buy lottery gifts for friends and family who are 18 years of age and older.

There is extensive free information and resources available dealing with youth and gambling:

  • The YMCA Youth Gambling Awareness Program (YGAP) is a free service funded by Ontario Ministry of Health to raise awareness among youth of gambling risks, how to make informed decisions, and healthy, active lifestyles.
  • The problemgambling.ca website, run by the Gambling, Gaming & Technology Use (GGTU) Knowledge Exchange of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), offers information and resources for parents who are concerned about their own gambling, and the effects of problem gambling on children.
  • The Responsible Gambling Council (RGC), an independent non-profit organization focused on the prevention of problem gambling in Canada and worldwide, with information on Teens or Young Adults and gambling.

Also, OLG’s PlaySmart.ca can help parents understand the facts when it comes to games, and concepts like odds and randomness. There’s also a “Finding Help” section with links to the support resources above and more.

OLG has supported the National Council on Problem Gambling and McGill University’s Holiday Campaign for many years, which encourages lotteries in Canada, the United States and around the world to promote the important message that lottery is not for kids.

OLG is a crown agency that develops world-class gaming entertainment for the Province of Ontario.

PROPOSED ACQUISITION OF GREAT CANADIAN GAMING CORPORATION BY AFFILIATES OF APOLLO GLOBAL MANAGEMENT INC.

TORONTO, ON – OLG provides world class gaming entertainment to communities across Ontario, which includes casinos operated by diversified service providers.

One of OLG’s service providers, Great Canadian Gaming Corporation (Great Canadian), is considering a proposal to be acquired by funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, Inc. (Apollo).

Duncan Hannay, OLG President and CEO stated: “The proposed acquisition is expected to support significant investment and profitable growth of gaming operations at Great Canadian casinos in Ontario. This benefits OLG, the Province, and the communities that host 11 casinos operated by Great Canadian in Ontario. We look forward to our continuing work with the Great Canadian team to realize this potential.”

“Ontario actively supports job-creating investments in communities province-wide. OLG welcomes investment to the Province, and we look forward to working together with Great Canadian to grow the economic benefits the gaming sector brings to Ontario,” added Peter Deeb, OLG Chair.

Apollo has indicated their intention to ensure a safe reopening of casinos in Ontario and that Great Canadian will remain headquartered in Toronto, led by a Canadian management team and with Canadian board members.

The Province’s commercial interests in casinos are conducted and managed by OLG and are protected under contractual agreements. These contracts remain in place and are unaffected by the proposed acquisition. OLG’s contracts with service providers include certain change of control consent rights in favour of OLG.

Since taking over day-to-day operations of casinos in three gaming bundles, Great Canadian has invested millions of new capital in Ontario. Examples include new casinos in Belleville, Peterborough, and major developments underway in Pickering and Casino Woodbine.

Great Canadian casinos are located in three gaming bundles — GTA (in partnership with Brookfield Asset Management Inc), West GTA and East – and include: Casino Woodbine, Great Blue Heron Casino, Casino Ajax, Shorelines Casino Peterborough, Shorelines Casino Belleville, Shorelines Slots at Kawartha Downs,  Shorelines Casino Thousand Islands, Elements Casino Mohawk, Elements Casino Brantford, Elements Casino Flamboro and Elements Casino Grand River.

Apollo points to Great Canadian’s strong track record of corporate citizenship and community involvement, and indicates an intention to carry forward this legacy.

Questions about the details of the proposed acquisition should be directed to Great Canadian.

TORONTO, ON – Today, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) announced the appointment of A. Duncan Hannay as President and Chief Executive Officer effective October 26, 2020.

“Following an extensive recruitment effort, we are pleased to welcome OLG’s new President and CEO, Duncan Hannay,” said Peter Deeb, Chair of OLG. “Duncan is a seasoned executive leader and CEO with global expertise transforming and growing organizations through a disciplined strategic approach, a deep understanding of digital innovation and a progressive leadership style. The Board of Directors and I are delighted to have Duncan join our very capable team at OLG.

Hannay has been a leader in both consumer and B2B categories, providing leadership on technology-enabled business transformation and go-to-market strategies across an array of private sector companies and geographies. Most recently, he was President and CEO of Street Capital Group Inc, a Canadian public company that delivered best-in-class deposit and lending products through its Schedule I bank subsidiary and grew to become one of the country’s largest originators of residential mortgages. Hannay previously served as Chief Operating Officer of Finastra, a global leader in software solutions spanning retail banking, transaction banking, lending, and treasury and capital markets. He also served as an executive leader at Canadian-based D+H as President of Global Lending Solutions, and President of D+H Canada. In addition, Hannay has held senior executive positions with Scotiabank as well as E*TRADE Financial.

“I look forward to working with the team at OLG to build a strategy for the future and to lead the organization through this unprecedented and very challenging time. I intend to work collaboratively with OLG’s valued partners to capitalize on growth opportunities and contribute to Ontario’s recovery in communities province-wide,” said Hannay.

As one of Canada’s largest companies, OLG is responsible for thousands of jobs and capital investment in communities across Ontario. Under Hannay, OLG will continue its commitment to responsible gambling with its award-winning PlaySmart program.

As previously communicated, outgoing President and CEO Stephen Rigby agreed to stay on at OLG until a successor was identified and to assist with a seamless transition of the business.

“I would like to thank Stephen for his leadership at OLG for more than five years, delivering strong financial growth and the modernization of our land-based gaming business,” said Chair Deeb. “Stephen has been critical to ensuring that OLG is positioned for success well into the future.”

WIN A JACKPOT ON THE SPOT WITH THE NEW LIGHTNING LOTTO GAME FROM OLG

Toronto, ON – OLG’s new LIGHTNING LOTTO game has struck at Ontario lottery retailers with a growing jackpot that can be won instantly in-store. This game is the first in Ontario where the winning numbers are drawn daily before sales begin, so each ticket has a chance to win the top prize – a jackpot that starts at $125,000 and grows with each play – as soon as it is purchased.

“Imagine winning a jackpot as fast as lightning,” said Lori Sullivan, OLG’s Chief Operating Officer. “LIGHTNING LOTTO is the first lottery draw game in Ontario where players don’t have to wait to find out if they’ve won a jackpot, because the draw has already happened! OLG continues to innovate and create unique products to give our players – existing and new – choice in the games and the way they play.”

When a LIGHTNING LOTTO ticket is requested the lottery terminal screen will play an animated lightning bolt and thunder crack, creating excitement for the player and others in the store.

How to Play:

  • LIGHTNING LOTTO is $2 per play by Quick Pick and available exclusively at lottery retailers.
  • The jackpot starts at $125,000 and each LIGHTNING LOTTO play purchased contributes to the growing jackpot.
  • When the jackpot is won, it resets to $125,000 and starts to grow again. The jackpot can be won more than once a day! If it is not won, the jackpot amount carries over to the next day.
  • Each play consists of three lines of five numbers from 1 to 49.
  • You can buy up to five plays on a ticket. LIGHTNING LOTTO is a pay before you play game.
  • Other available prizes range from $2 to $5,000.
  • Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 4.47.
  • Match all five numbers in any one line on your LIGHTNING LOTTO ticket with those drawn earlier that day to win the jackpot.
  • LIGHTNING LOTTO tickets can only be redeemed at an OLG lottery retailer or the OLG Prize Centre.

LIGHTNING LOTTO Quick Picks and winning numbers are determined by using Random Number Generator technology. Every draw is overseen and audited both by OLG and independent third-party experts to ensure the game’s integrity.

Sales for LIGHTNING LOTTO began today at OLG’s nearly 10,000 retail outlets across the province. For more information on How to Play as well as full prize details and odds of winning, visit OLG.ca.

OLG STATEMENT: PHASED APPROACH TO REOPENING ONTARIO CASINOS AND CHARITABLE GAMING CENTRES

The health and safety of casino customers, employees and the host gaming communities remains as always, a priority for the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and its service providers.

The Government of Ontario announced as part of its Stage 3 re-opening plan, it is permitting certain businesses to re-open in certain regions, including casinos and Charitable Gaming centres, which have been closed since March 16-17, 2020.

The re-opening of these facilities is subject to the following restrictions:

  • A maximum of 50 customers in the gaming establishment at any given time;
  • A requirement that all persons on-site adhere to two metre physical distancing; and,
  • For eligible casinos, no table games at this time.

This Stage 3 re-opening is consistent with the province’s regional approach it took during Stage 2. Eligible casinos and Charitable Gaming centres have been selected on the basis of location and risk, subject to the advice of public health officials.

For casinos and Charitable Gaming centres, re-opening is contingent on having a safety plan for the site (which must include mandatory use of masks or face-coverings for customers), reviewed by an appropriate expert and submitted to the regulator, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).Re-opening dates for eligible casino and Charitable Gaming centres will be set by the service providers and communicated by them. The specific reopening date for each gaming site will vary depending on a site’s readiness and commercial viability to operate under the mandatory restrictions.

Working in partnership with Ontario, its industry partners, and the AGCO, OLG is proud to contribute to the re-opening of the economy with health and safety as a top priority.

OLG PRIZE CENTRE RESUMES IN-PERSON PRIZE CLAIMS

TORONTO, ON – In-person prize claims for winning-ticket holders of $50,000 or more have resumed at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. The gradual resumption of in-person prize claims begins with a by-appointment only process prioritizing players who have been unable to claim their prizes since the temporary closure of the OLG Prize Centre to the public on March 17, 2020.

To best protect customers and staff, measures recommended by public health officials, are in place at the Prize Centre to prevent and reduce the spread of COVID-19, including: 

  • physical distancing;
  • increased cleaning of public and shared spaces;
  • available hand sanitizing stations; and
  • the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as masks by customers.

As such, the number of potential claimants who will be allowed inside the Prize Centre at any given time has been significantly reduced. At this time, appointments are being extended to jackpot and major prize claimants.

Upon successfully contacting the claimants of prizes of $50,000 or more and making those arrangements, the Prize Centre will begin to reach out to claimants of $10,000 or more to offer prize claim appointments. Future announcements will be made as to when OLG will open appointments to others wishing to claim their prize in-person at the Prize Centre.

 However, in-person claims are not required for prizes of less than $50,000 and players are reminded:

  • Prize claims of up to $49,999.90 can be submitted by mail, following the instructions on OLG.ca or by calling the OLG Support Centre at 1-800-387-0098.
  • Lottery prizes of up to $999.90 can be redeemed at any one of the 10,000 lottery retail outlets provincewide. The payment of these prizes is subject to the availability of cash at specific outlets

While the Prize Centre was not conducting in-person claims, OLG continued to pay thousands of customers prizes sent in by mail totalling more than $17 million. The mail-in prize limit was increased from $9,999.90 to $49,999.90 to allow more customers the opportunity to claim their prizes during this unprecedented time while still upholding prize integrity.

OLG appreciates the patience and understanding from our players as we worked to implement these additional procedures to ensure the safety of our customers and our staff.

CELEBRATING $13.2 MILLION RAISED FOR PICKERING CHARITIES THROUGH CHARITABLE BINGO AND GAMING REVITALIZATION

PICKERING, ON – Ontario’s Charitable Bingo and Gaming Revitalization initiative is celebrating an important milestone in Pickering. More than $13 million has been raised and benefited 62 local charities part of the Pickering Charitable Gaming Association as a result of the revitalization of charitable bingo and gaming.

This program, which began 15 years ago, is delivered through a partnership between Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association (OCGA), the Commercial Gaming Association of Ontario (CGAO), local charities and gaming and bingo centre operators.

Delta Bingo and Gaming Pickering hosted the official celebration for the $13.2 million milestone. This location converted to a Charitable Gaming Centre in 2012. Today’s event was attended by Peter Bethlenfalvy, President of the Treasury Board and MPP Pickering-Uxbridge, Maurice Brenner, City Councillor for the City of Pickering, David Fraser, Senior Director of Charitable Gaming at OLG, and Lynn Cassidy, Executive Director of the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association.

“Raising $13.2 million to benefit local charities and non-profit organizations in our community is a tremendous achievement,” said Peter Bethlenfalvy,MPP for Pickering-Uxbridge. “The revitalization of charitable gaming has resulted in sustaining essential programs in the Pickering community and enhancing the services across Durham Region. I would like to commend the charities involved in this initiative, their volunteers, and the gaming center staff for their efforts in reaching this milestone.”

“The City of Pickering is very proud of its community partnership with Delta Bingo and Gaming, Ontario Lottery and Gaming and the 62 charities and not-for-profits that have contributed $13.2 million for important programs and services in our city,” said Mayor Dave Ryan. “Due to the significant efforts of the many volunteers, all of these funds remain in our community and benefit the residents of Pickering and surrounding area.”

“OLG is proud of the Charitable Bingo and Gaming Revitalization initiative and the role we play in providing sustainable revenue sources to the charities that serve the City of Pickering,” said David Fraser, Senior Director, Charitable Gaming at OLG.

“Today is celebrating the wonderful success of Charitable Gaming in Pickering,” said Lynn Cassidy, Executive Director of the OCGA. “This initiative is making a big difference to many local charities and non-profits that provide important programs and services.”

Background on Charitable Gaming in Ontario

In the past 15 years, OLG has been working with the CGAO and the OCGA to revitalize the province’s Charitable Bingo and Gaming industry. By developing and introducing new products and technologies that have invigorated the traditional charitable gaming experience, more money has been generated for thousands of local charities across the province. The revitalization initiative is preserving and enhancing funding for charities across Ontario while creating economic benefits, including employment opportunities at local charitable gaming centres.

A pilot program was started in 2005 to test electronic versions of existing paper-based bingo games with six charity bingo centres in five communities in Ontario.

Following the success of this pilot project, a phased rollout of a new suite of electronic games was introduced to other charitable gaming sites in the province. This started in 2012.  The new charitable games offer customers more choice, and complement existing paper bingo games:

  • Electronic Bingo: Charitable Gaming Centres offer terminals with touch screens that allow players to touch the screen to dab the numbers and play along.   Includes new games such as Upik8 where the players can pick their own numbers to play.
  • TAP ‘N PLAY games:  A collection of electronic games played on terminals or cabinet style devices.  The evolution of bingo and break open games featuring entertaining displays.

The new games allow Charitable Gaming Centres to offer more customer choice and appeal to a broader demographic, while providing a different gaming entertainment experience from traditional bingo.

In total, 32 Charitable Gaming Centres have raised more than $274 million in additional money for local charities and their communities.

As part of the revitalization OLG implemented its responsible gambling platform, PlaySmart, at all 32 Charitable Gaming Centres. The PlaySmart program and on-site PlaySmart Centres provide staff, volunteers, new and seasoned players with information on positive play and assistance to those who may express concerns about their gambling.  PlaySmart is the go-to place for facts, tools and advice.  Approximately every other month PlaySmart Centre staff visit the sites to answer questions, connect with players, and run interactive educational events.  PlaySmart Centres are operated and managed by the Responsible Gambling Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of problem gambling.

OLG MAKES SECOND-QUARTER PAYMENTS TO GAMING SITE HOST COMMUNITIES

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has issued second-quarter (July 1 to September 30, 2019) non-tax gaming revenue payments totalling $37,660,974 to 25 communities which currently host gaming facilities.

To date, host communities have received more than $1.6 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.

“Revenues generated at local gaming sites directly contribute to better quality of life for Ontarians,” said Rod Phillips, Ontario Minister of Finance. “Projects to improve local infrastructure like roads and public transit as well as community programs and services all benefit from OLG’s tremendous partnerships with host municipalities.”

These payments are made under an equitable formula that determines the funds communities receive for hosting a gaming facility and are based on a graduated scale of gaming revenue that is consistent across all sites in Ontario.

OLG provides the Ontario government with its largest source of non-tax revenue from Government Business Enterprises. In 2018-2019, this amounted to $2.47 billion.

LOTTO MAX CHANGES COMING MAY 2019

LOTTO MAX, Canada’s biggest lottery game, will soon have lottery players dreaming even bigger. For the first time ever in LOTTO MAX history, the main jackpot will be able to grow as high as $70 million – an amount no Canadian lottery has ever reached before.

Beginning May 11, 2019, customers will be able to play LOTTO MAX every Tuesday in addition to the regular Friday draw. The new second draw every week means lottery players will see jackpots grow more quickly than ever before.

When LOTTO MAX was introduced in 2009, a lottery game that offered multiple $50 million jackpots a year was unheard of in Canada. Then in 2015, the jackpot cap increased to $60 million offering players an even bigger jackpot experience.

With the new LOTTO MAX gearing up to increase the main jackpot cap to $70 million, opportunities to become a millionaire with MAXMILLIONS will continue when the jackpot reaches and exceeds $50 million.

The new LOTTO MAX enhancements follow an extensive game design process that included consultation with lottery players across the country.

Sales for the new LOTTO MAX start Saturday, May 11, 2019, with the first draw on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 and the second draw on Friday, May 17, 2019.

Quick facts:

  • The main LOTTO MAX jackpot will be able to grow as high as $70 million
  • Two draws a week: Tuesdays and Fridays
  • No change to the cost of play: $5 for three selections of seven numbers
  • $1 million MAXMILLIONS prizes will continue to be offered when the main jackpot reaches and exceeds $50 million
  • Two brand-new prize categories
    • Match 5/7+bonus
    • Match 4/7+bonus
  • Numbers will be selected from 1 to 50
  • The odds of winning the main jackpot will be 1 in 33,294,800 per $5 play
  • The overall odds to win a prize will be 1 in 7 per $5 play

“OLG provides direct support to communities across Ontario through payments to municipal partners and local charities, and generates more than $4 billion in economic activity, including goods and services purchased from local businesses,” said Vic Fedeli, Ontario’s Minister of Finance.

These payments are made under an equitable formula that determines the funds communities receive for hosting a gaming facility and are based on a graduated scale of gaming revenue that is consistent across all sites in Ontario.

At more than $2 billion annually, OLG provides the Ontario government with its largest source of non-tax revenue.

OLG is a crown agency that develops world-class gaming entertainment for the Province of Ontario. Acting in a socially responsible way, OLG conducts and manages land-based gaming facilities; the sale of province-wide lottery games; PlayOLG Internet gaming; and the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres. OLG is also helping to build a more sustainable horse racing industry in Ontario. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $47 billion to the people and Province of Ontario to support key government priorities like health care; the treatment, prevention and research of problem gambling; and support for amateur athletes. Each year, proceeds from OLG’s operations also support host communities, Ontario First Nations, lottery retailers and local charities across the province.
