Protect your play

It's your ticket! Sign it! Protect it!

Always print your name, address and daytime telephone number on the back of your ticket as soon as you receive it.  

Check the control numbers

When the retailer validates your ticket:

  • Ask to see your validation slip
  • Confirm that the control numbers match

Watch where you leave your ticket

Ticket paper is thermal sensitive.

Do not leave your ticket on:

  • your vehicle’s dashboard
  • on a window ledge,
  • or in any place where it may receive prolonged sunlight.

The print on your ticket may disappear!  

Don't let your ticket expire!

All tickets expire. Pay attention to the expiry dates on the back of your tickets to avoid missing out on collecting your winnings.

Watch out for scams

Be aware of lottery scams.
