PlayOLG LOTTERY PURCHASES: BUY EARLY TO AVOID THE LAST-MINUTE RUSH
PlayOLG has been experiencing record traffic recently as more players are interested in purchasing LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49 tickets online.
These volumes are highest in the hours before a draw and may result in longer than normal wait times to purchase tickets and to access the Player Support Team.
We want you to have the best experience possible when buying on PlayOLG, so if you plan to purchase a ticket this week, please consider buying early to avoid the last-minute rush.
Here are some tips you may find helpful:
- Purchase your tickets THE DAY BEFORE the draw you want to enter
- Consider registering for a PlayOLG Lottery Subscription to select in advance the number of draws you want to play, OR
- Select the ‘Never Miss a Draw’ feature to continue your ticket purchases until you decide to stop.
New online lottery players should know that the standard PlayOLG registration process is required prior to making an online lottery purchase.
The process is straightforward but does take a few minutes and some supporting documents may be required.
Please visit the PlayOLG FAQ page beforehand to see what you’ll need to register and complete your purchase and well as information on creating and managing a lottery subscription.
We appreciate your patience and thank you for your continued interest in our lottery products.
