Checking your Ticket

There are several ways you can check your lottery tickets.

Use the Ticket Checkers at your Lottery Retailer.

Step 1: Wait for the message, “CHECK YOUR TICKETS HERE”.

Step 2: Insert the bar code under the red light - the bar code is located at the bottom of the ticket or  under the latex in the play area for SCRATCH 'N WIN.

Step 3: Move the bar code slowly through the light, until you hear a BEEP. Prize information will then appear on the screen.

If you experience any difficulty while checking your tickets, or have any concerns about a lottery Retailer, you can contact us via email or by phone at 1-800-665-3313, and press '4' to speak with a Customer Care Representative. We are available Monday to Friday during regular business hours. Please have ready as much detail about the incident as possible.

Myth: Players in big cities/provinces have a better chance of winning a jackpot.

Fact: Every selection has the same chance of winning as every other selection sold for the same game, regardless of where you purchase it. Over time, locations of winning tickets tend to reflect the total proportion sold in an area, but provinces and cities don’t win lotteries – individual people or groups do.
