4 Registration of a Player Account
4.1 Eligibility to Register a Player Account
Only Players are allowed to play Draw Based Lottery Games Played Online and Pay-to-Play Games through OLG.ca. An individual who desires to become a Player (an “Intending Player”) must satisfy the following criteria, as determined by OLG in its sole discretion:
- the Intending Player must not already be a Player. A Player is only entitled to have one Player Account. The registration or attempted registration of more than one Player Account will constitute a material breach of this Agreement;
- the Intending Player must be at least 18 years of age. Only Players who are at least 19 years of age will be able to play Pay-to-Play Games and Play-for-Free Games. All Players who are at least 18 years of age are eligible to play Draw-Based Lottery Games Played Online;
- the Intending Player must reside in Ontario;
- the Intending Player must be physically located in the Province of Ontario each time the Player plays any of the Games (including when signing up for Future Game Transactions);
- the Intending Player must not be an Excluded Individual;
- the Intending Player must be an individual who is acting on their own behalf. The Intending Player must not be acting for or on behalf of anyone other than themselves, whether as an agent or otherwise; and
- the Intending Player must submit true, complete and accurate information when providing registration information.
- in the case of Sports Betting Games Played Online, the Intending Player must comply with the provisions of paragraphs 5(a), (b), (c) and (d) of Section 14.5 each time the Intending Player plays any of the Games.
An Intending Player who does not satisfy all of the foregoing criteria is not eligible to register an account with OLG.ca or to become a Player. OLG, in its sole discretion, may require additional information or documentation from an Intending Player or Player prior to completing the registration of a Player Account or at any time thereafter, including for the purposes of confirming a Player's identity or other Player Contact Information and in order to investigate any other suspected breaches of this Agreement (including any suspected fraudulent or dishonest activity). A failure of the Intending Player to satisfy any of the foregoing will constitute a material breach of this Agreement.
OLG will disclose an Intending Player's registration information to third-party service providers for the purposes of authenticating some or all of the registration information that has been provided to OLG by an Intending Player and to otherwise confirm that an Intending Player has satisfied the foregoing criteria and is eligible to register a Player Account. In addition, OLG may similarly disclose information in respect of a Player from time to time for the purposes of (i) confirming the Player's continued eligibility to maintain a Player Account, (ii) investigating any suspected breaches of this Agreement (including any suspected fraudulent or dishonest activity), and (iii) exercising any of OLG's other rights described in this Agreement or in any of the other documents incorporated in this Agreement by reference pursuant to Section 3.
4.2 Player Account Information
Information that is submitted by an Intending Player who is registering an account with OLG.ca must be true, accurate and complete at the time it is provided to OLG and such information must remain true, accurate and complete following the registration of a Player Account. If any of such registration information changes following the registration of a Player Account, it is the Player's sole responsibility to ensure that the Player remains entitled to have a Player Account pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and, if necessary, to update the Player's information in the Player Account by going to the “My Account” or “Account Information” page.
OLG may, from time to time, disclose a Player's registration information to third-party service providers for the purposes of confirming that the Player's registration information remains true and accurate. In addition, OLG may, at any time in its sole discretion, request additional information and documentation from a Player for this purpose.
You consent that OLG, and its third-party service providers, can collect personal information/Player information. You consent that this information can be used, stored, retained, and disclosed outside of the province of Ontario and Canada. This consent enables the following services to be provided: (i) verification of identity; (ii) payment processing; (iii) location verification; (iv) analytics (e.g., web site usage); (v) customer relationship management and player support; (vi) email services; and (vii) technical support of OLG.ca.
The failure of a Player to update their Player Account information in a timely manner will constitute a material breach of this Agreement by the Player. Following the registration of a Player Account, if OLG discovers that any of the registration information associated with a Player Account which is then on file in the iGaming System is not true or is no longer accurate or complete (including, for example, because a Player's circumstances have changed and the Player did not update their information that is associated with the Player Account), OLG may take all steps in relation to the Player or the Player Account that OLG determines, in its sole discretion, to be appropriate. For example, these steps may include Suspending, or Deactivating the Player Account, investigating any security issues and, in the case of suspected or actual identity theft or fraud, disclosing all relevant information to the appropriate law enforcement authorities and other third parties that OLG determines to be appropriate (for example, the AGCO, OLG's payment processors, and credit card issuers and brands).

Ontario Lottery Results
Ontario Lottery Games
Lotteries in Ontario are owned and operated exclusively by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation. The Corporation redistributes its profits across various charitable and community causes throughout Ontario, distributing hundreds of millions of dollars per year for the benefit of residents of the province.
The lottery operator provides a vast selection of games, with 13 main lottery games on offer, with many of these offering supplementary games for even more opportunities to win life-changing sums of money!
Lotto Max is Canada’s most popular national lottery game, with its generous starting jackpot and with three entries costing just CAD 5.00.
Players can manually choose seven numbers from 1 to 50 or take a Quick Pick for random selections. When the Lotto Max jackpot hits CAD 50 million, players are automatically entered into MaxMillions: a raffle draw with guaranteed prizes of CAD 1 million!
Lotto 6/49 is another national lottery game that utilizes the familiar and straightforward 6 from 49 format known worldwide.
Players choose six numbers from 1 to 49 or can take a Quick Pick for random selections. Entry costs CAD 3.00, which also gives entry into the GUARANTEED draw for the chance to win CAD 1 million.
Daily Grand is another popular national lottery, with the chance to win CAD 1,000 a day for life, plus a lump sum of CAD 7 million also being up for grabs!
Players need to choose five numbers from 1 to 49 and a Grand Number from 1 to 7, or can take a Quick Pick for random selections.
Ontario 49 is a provincial lottery game that utilizes the same format as Lotto 6/49.
In addition to choosing six numbers, players can also use Combination Play to enter up to nine numbers in every available combination for a great way to increase the odds of winning, but at a much more expensive ticket price!
Daily Keno is a traditional Keno game that allows players to choose the amount of numbers they wish to bet on, as well as their stake.
In Daily Keno, the stake acts as a prize multiplier, with players who bet CAD 10.00 able to win a significantly more lucrative jackpot than those betting just CAD 1.00!
Lottario is a simple lottery game, with entry costing just CAD 1.00 and players needing to choose six numbers between 1 and 45.
Lottario has a unique Early Bird feature, with players who enter before midnight on Friday being entered into an additional raffle draw for the chance to win CAD 50,000 at no additional cost.
Lightning Lotto is a Quick Pick-only game, with players getting three sets of five numbers for CAD 2.00 per play.
Lightning Lotto is unique, with the winning numbers being drawn each day before tickets are sold, with players instantly knowing whether they have won or not! Smaller prizes can be claimed on the spot at lottery retailers!
Poker Lotto is another game with a unique format, with all entries being Quick Pick only.
Tickets cost CAD 2.00 for two chances to win.
The first chance to win Poker Lotto is by way of Instant Win. Players win an instant cash prize when the hand on their ticket matches the hand displayed on the lottery console, after the ticket has been bought.
The second chance to win is via a traditional lottery draw, with players needing to match the cards on their ticket with those that are drawn.
Wheel of Fortune Lotto
Wheel of Fortune Lotto is a unique lottery game that gives players an Instant Win opportunity and entry into a nightly draw. All entries are Quick Pick only and cost CAD 2.00.
Prizes are instantly won if the Wheel of Fortune spin on the lottery console lands on the same spot as that indicated on the ticket.
All tickets have six random words printed on them, with the jackpot being won by matching all six words against those drawn from a pool of 39, with secondary prizes being available for players who match at least three words.
Megadice Lotto is similar in format to Wheel of Fortune Lotto, but uses dice instead of words.
All entries are via Quick Pick, cost CAD 2.00 and offer an Instant Win opportunity and entry into a nightly draw.
In Instant Win, the lottery terminal simulates the rolling of seven dice, with prizes being won if players match a winning combination.
The draw game operates as a traditional lottery, with players needing to match all six Quick Pick numbers on their ticket to win the jackpot.
Pick 2 is a straightforward draw game, with tickets costing CAD 2.00.
Players choose two numbers from 0 to 9 or can go for a Quick Pick for random selections. Numbers are chosen independently, signifying that the same number can be chosen twice. Players win by matching both numbers in the order drawn, with a secondary prize being available for matching the first number only.
Pick 3 allows players to choose their own stake, with CAD 1.00, CAD 2.00, CAD 5.00 and CAD 10.00 wagers being available.
Players pick three numbers from 0 to 9 and, because they are chosen independently from each other, can be selected multiple times.
The jackpot is won by matching all three digits in the order drawn, with secondary prizes also available.
Pick 4 tickets cost CAD 1.00, with players needing to choose their own wager and their own numbers.
Entry options are Straight Play: betting on numbers drawn in the correct order, or Box Play: betting on numbers drawn in any order, or multiple selections of the same number on the ticket.
Players must then choose four numbers from 0 to 9, depending on the entry method chosen. For example, players who choose Box Play can win if they choose two pairs of numbers, two identical numbers or three identical numbers in their selections.

Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation
Canadian provincial Crown corporation
Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (French: Société des loteries et des jeux de l'Ontario), known for corporate branding purposes simply as OLG since 2006, is a Crown corporation owned by the Government of Ontario, Canada. It is responsible for the province's lotteries, charity and Aboriginalcasinos, commercial casinos, and slot machines at horse-racing tracks. It was created in April 2000 when the Ontario Lottery Corporation (OLC) was merged with the Ontario Casino Corporation (OCC), established in 1994. Prior to 2006, the combined entity was known in short form as the OLGC (or SLJO in French). OLG employs over 8,000 individuals throughout Ontario.
OLG's prize centre is located in Toronto, while the corporation's primary headquarters is located in Sault Ste. Marie. Whereas OLG is responsible for and operates a variety of gaming services, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) regulates casino gaming. OLG reports through its board of directors to the Minister of Finance. From 2003 to 2007, it was under the Ministry of Public Infrastructure Renewal.
OLG operates a self-exclusion program for people with gambling addictions, although this program has been controversial. The ConnexOntario – Problem Gambling Support hotline is 1-866-531-2600.
The Ontario Lottery Corporation was created in February 1975 under the Ontario Lottery Corporation Act, 1975 (repealed in 1999 and replaced with the current Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation Act). Wintario was the first lottery game offered by the fledgling OLC on April 3, 1975 and the first drawing took place on May 15, 1975. The product was discontinued in late 1996 after awarding over CA$1.1 billion in winnings.
OLG has chosen to modernize as over the past 30 years, demographics have changed, as have people’s shopping patterns. Global gaming options are more accessible — particularly online. At the same time, U.S. visitors have declined. All of these shifts have put the industry and its contribution to the province at risk in the long term. Modernization will enable OLG to provide additional revenues to the Province to help fund the operation of hospitals and other provincial priorities.
As a result of modernization, OLG will:
- Become more customer-focused
- Expand the regulated private sector delivery of lottery and gaming
- Renew its role in the conduct and management of lottery and gaming.
Modernization will help to create jobs across Ontario and trigger private sector investment. The capital costs of expanding, improving or simply maintaining gaming facilities will no longer be carried by taxpayers. Ontario residents and visitors will have access to more innovative and fun games. In addition, the existing lottery distribution network will be expanded to include multi-lane sales at large retailers, accommodating a broader customer base.
As part of modernization efforts OLG has introduced iGaming. iGaming is the first provincially government-regulated internet gambling site. OLG has launched PlayOLG.ca as well as a mobile app. These are new secure online gambling programs that features fun and exciting games, along with a comprehensive Responsible Gambling program. PlayOLG.ca does offer increased player protections, secure transactions and data privacy, and will require players to register to play.
PlayOLG.ca offers Ontario citizens over the age of 18 a full range of online lottery tickets for national games such as LOTTO MAX, LOTTO 6/49 and ENCORE.
PlayOLG.ca offers Ontario residents over the age of 19 a full range of online gaming options, including:
- Online lottery tickets for national games such as DAILY GRAND, LOTTO MAX, LOTTO 6/49 and ENCORE
- Table games
- Single player poker
- Instant Gaming
Future state product releases will include:
- Online bingo
- Sports wagering
- Online poker
- Other skills-based games
OLG has established this website in an attempt to protect consumers from offshore internet gaming sites. Offshore gaming sites do not verify the age of the participant, and have no player protection or secure transactions. OLG takes a strong stand against underage gambling and the PlayOLG.ca registration process will include age verification that will help prevent minors from registering an account.
OLG has five business divisions:
OLG operates nine draw-style lottery games through retailers across the province.
Lotto 6/49, Lotto Max and Daily Grand are operated across Canada by the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation. The corporation also offers instant scratch games under the brand Instant Games, and sports games under the brands Pro-Line, Point-Spread and Pro-Picks.
OLG used to offer a subscription-based lottery service called LOTTO ADVANCE for Lotto 6/49. This service is now discontinued since September 7, 2013.
OLG owns and manages casinos. Most of these which have private operators, notably Great Canadian Gaming and Gateway Casinos.
OLG operates slot machine facilities at racetracks across Ontario. They are located at:
Slots at racetracks generated $300 million annually for the racetracks until 2012 when the program ended. However, threatened with the closure of numerous tracks, the Ontario government extended the plan while it determined its future direction in gaming facilities.
OLG operates a number of bingo centres throughout Ontario, including e-bingo.
The minimum age to purchase OLG lottery tickets is 18; however, for patronizing casinos and/or parimutuel facilities in the province, it is 19.
Violators who sell OLG lottery tickets to anyone under the age of 18 can face significant fines under the legislation passed in 1997. In addition OLG reserves the right to suspend violators found to have sold OLG lottery tickets to anyone under the age of 18.
Prizes under $1000 can be collected directly from a retailer that has a lottery terminal in store. This is subject to cash availability. People can collect bigger prizes by visiting an OLG Casino or Slot facility. This can be done by mailing the ticket to the OLG Prize Centre or by visiting the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. When claiming the prize at the OLG Prize Centre, the prizewinner must have valid government identification as well as providing a signature. The ticket will be double checked in case of fraud.
If the prize money is $5000 or more the terminal will freeze and OLG will be contacted. OLG will inform the winner directly of how to claim their prize.
If the prize money is $10,000 or more, the process of claiming your prize will involve an interview and an investigator validating the authority of the ticket. Once approved, there will be a picture taken of you with your cheque.
OLG publicizes all winners of $1,000 or more on their website.
There is a time period of exactly one year from the draw date to claim Ontario lottery games.
On October 25, 2006, the CBC program The Fifth Estate aired an investigative report on lottery retailers winning major prizes, focusing on the ordeal of 82-year-old Bob Edmonds. His $250,000 winning Encore ticket was stolen by a convenience store clerk when he went to have his ticket checked in 2001. For the next four years, OLG ignored Edmonds' inquiries after the clerk and her husband were falsely named the rightful winners. Later, when the couple were arrested for fraud, OLG refused to return his winnings, maintaining that it wasn't their responsibility that they had been tricked; in 2004, a judge disagreed, and forced OLG to give Edmonds his money. They did so, on the condition that Edmonds sign a confidentiality agreement, so that he would never tell the press about certain details of the ordeal. Also, The Fifth Estate uncovered internal OLG memos where several employees admitted they believed Edmonds' story. Immediately following the broadcast, Edmonds received a call from OLG's president, Duncan Brown, who apologized and claimed he was ashamed about how his staff treated Edmonds. OLG later released Edmonds from the confidentiality agreement. He died on April 2, 2007.
In another case, Toronto variety store owner Hafiz Malik had defrauded four school board employees out of their $5.7 million prize. He was arrested after the original ticket owners filed a complaint with police. The OPP seized or froze over $5-million of Malik's assets, including bank accounts, three cars, and a home in Mississauga. OLG has since awarded the rightful winners the prize plus interest.
The report by The Fifth Estate added that over 200 lottery retailers in Ontario have won major prizes from 1999 to 2006. A statistician featured in the report, Jeff Rosenthal, calculated that the chance that this would occur purely out of luck is one in a "trillion trillion trillion trillion" (or quindecillion). OLG did have a policy on insider wins, but it was rarely enforced during that period. Provincial ombudsmanAndré Marin released a report stating that Ontario store owners and their families claimed about $100 million in lottery wins between 1999 and 2006, with tens of millions of fraudulent claims being ignored by the OLGC.
OLG has since mandated new security measures to protect lottery customers, notably with customer-facing displays when tickets are checked, as well as special music played with a winning ticket. As of January 28, 2008, lottery retailers are required to ensure that tickets are signed. There is a signature box shown on the front of all on-line lottery tickets.
Lottery ticket recalls
2007 Super Bingo recall
In March 2007, OLG announced that it had recalled over 1,000,000 scratch and win tickets. The "Super Bingo" series of tickets were removed from retail stores after it was announced that a customer made the claim that he could visually tell which tickets were winners. It was the largest recall ever of a lottery ticket in Canada, and were prompted in part from greater media scrutiny regarding ongoing fraud investigations.
2009 Fruit Scratch recall
In January 2009, OLG announced it has recalled over 1,000 scratch and win tickets. The "Fruit Scratch" series of lottery tickets were removed from retail stores after it was discovered that over dozens of lottery tickets were reportedly misprinted. Up to 150 of the misprinted tickets were reportedly purchased at eight stores across Southern Ontario one-week before the recall was issued. OLG has since reached an undisclosed settlement with a 27-year-old Thomas Noftall from Brampton, Ontario, who was mistakenly told that he may have won $135,000 on a misprinted lottery ticket.
Slot machine recall
In February 2007, it was discovered that 87 slot machines at Provincially run casinos were displaying subliminal messages on slot machine screens to players. An image of a winning symbol combination was shown quickly before or during the simulated spinning of the slot machine reels. The manufacturer, Konami, provided a software update for the machines.
In the wake of these controversies, the provincial government ordered Duncan Brown to be relieved of his position as OLG chief on 21 March 2007. This was not public knowledge until two days later, when Brown's dismissal took effect. David Caplan, Ontario's minister responsible for OLG, intended to announce this firing on 26 March following the release of a report on OLG's situation by provincial ombudsman André Marin. Marin criticized the OLG for being more fixated on profits than the integrity of games after a disproportionate number of lottery retailers or their families claimed winning tickets.
Exclusion program inefficiency
Casino clients who recognize that they have a gambling addiction can benefit from the self-exclusion program operated by the OLG. An investigation conducted by the CBC's The Fifth Estate (TV series) in late 2017 led to concerns as to whether the program is effective. According to a CBC article, "Gambling addicts ... said that while on the ... self-exclusion list, they entered OLG properties on a regular basis" in spite of the facial recognition technology in place at the casinos. As well, a CBC journalist who tested the system found that he was able to enter casinos and gamble on four distinct occasions, in spite of being registered and photographed for the program. Previous studies in other countries have also confirmed that self-exclusion programs can be difficult to enforce.
Some experts maintain that casinos in general arrange for self-exclusion programs as a public relations measure without actually helping those with problem gambling issues. A campaign of this type "deflects attention away from problematic products and industries," according to Natasha Dow Schull, a cultural anthropologist at New York University and author of the book Addiction by Design. Other experts believe that self-enforcement is part of the problem gambler's own responsibility, as one aspect of any therapy program. "Without such acceptance of responsibility, much of the effectiveness of self-exclusion programs would be lost", as one explained.
As OLG literature confirms, the enforcement by a casino cannot be expected to be 100% foolproof. "If you attempt to re-enter a gaming facility in Ontario, your image may be captured by cameras and you may be automatically detected by security." An OLG spokesman provided this response when questioned by the CBC after the investigation of the self-enforcement program had been completed: "We provide supports to self-excluders by training our staff, by providing disincentives, by providing facial recognition, by providing our security officers to look for players. No one element is going to be foolproof because it is not designed to be foolproof".
