COMING SOON: EXTENDED TIME TO PLAY LOTTERY TICKET PURCHASE CUTOFF CHANGING TO 10:30 P.M.

TORONTO, ON – Starting Monday July 13, 2015, lottery customers will have more time in the evening to buy an OLG ticket for a draw to be held the same night. The cut-off time to purchase a ticket for a draw the same night will move to 10:30 p.m. from 9:00 p.m.

The change applies to all OLG evening lottery draw games including the national big lotto games LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49, as well as all Ontario regional games such as ONTARIO 49, LOTTARIO, and ENCORE.

With the later time to buy tickets, the times at which draws are held and winning numbers are announced will also occur later. Winning numbers and prize information will still be released as quickly as possible, and players will still be able to validate tickets early the next day.

The later time to buy a ticket for a draw the same night applies to all OLG games with evening draws. There’s no change to the 2:00 p.m. cut-off for ticket purchases on mid-day draws. To ensure players are aware of the change, notices and information about the later times began June 1 through messages printed on tickets, at lottery retailers and on OLG websites.

Ontario lottery players can also purchase tickets online for LOTTO MAX, LOTTO 6/49 and ENCORE by registering with OLG’s Internet gaming and lottery site Playolg.ca.

OLG is a provincial agency responsible for gaming facilities, the sale of province-wide lottery games, the PlayOLG Internet gaming website and the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres across the province.
