TORONTO, ON – Just in time for the holiday season, OLG is introducing a convenient new gift giving option in the form of Lottery Gift Cards. In a recent survey, nearly 40 per cent of Ontarians said gift cards are at the top of the list of gifts they purchase for family and friends.
Ontarians now have two different types of Lottery Gift Card options to choose from:
Lottery Gift Cards can be purchased at any dollar value from $5 to $100 at participating lottery retailers. They can be redeemed over an extended period of time for any lottery product.
LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX single use Gift Cards. LOTTO 6/49 Gift Cards can be purchased for $20 and LOTTO MAX Gift Cards are available for $30 each. Each of these cards can be redeemed once for one Quick Pick play plus ENCORE for five consecutive draws. Available for purchase at participating lottery retailers as well as at participating grocery stores and major big box retailers in existing gift card racks.
“We are excited to offer Ontarians this easy and convenient gift giving option,” said Wendy Montgomery, Vice President, Lottery Marketing and Sales. “It is the first time that lottery products can be purchased with gift cards from OLG, and could become the gift that keeps on giving!”
Gift Cards can only be redeemed for use at participating lottery retailers by individuals 18 years of age or older. To learn more about Lottery Gift Cards, LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX Gift Cards, visit www.olg.ca/lotteries/giftcards.
