OLG Lottery is a free lottery application that lets you scan your ticket to see if you have won. Unlike Lucky Money - Feel Great Make it Rain that features lottery games, this app is linked to the Ontario Lottery & Gaming system. You’ll need to have an official ticket from a licensed local store for the application to work.
While you can’t buy a lottery ticket from the app, there are many other features available. For instance, you can see if you have any winning numbers or scan your OLG gift card to view the remaining amount. It also reminds you of any jackpots available for play during the week.
Scan your ticket
If you’ve purchased an OLG lottery ticket, you can use this app to scan the barcode and see if you have any winning numbers. It doesn’t matter if you’ve gone away for the weekend or travelled overseas, as you can scan your ticket from anywhere. You can also view the past winning numbers from any of the OLG lotteries if you want to compare them or use an old ticket.
Check your gift card
OLG offers gift cards for people to use on lotteries. With theOLG Lottery app, you can scan your card to see the remaining balance, giving you quick access to your balance. You’ll also receive reminders of any jackpots you’ve marked as your favourite, ensuring that you don’t miss out on any opportunities.
Find a licensed retailer
You can only purchase valid tickets from a licensed OLG lottery provider, which is why you cannot do so on the app. However, it does highlight where the closest store is where you can buy a lotto ticket. It’s a convenient feature for when you travel out of town, and you’re not sure if there are any OLG retailers nearby.
See if you won the lottery
OLG Lottery is ideal if you play the lottery via the Ontario Lottery & Gaming platform and you want to see if you have any of the winning numbers. You can also check for nearby retailers and scan your gift card, but the convenience is checking to see if you hit the millions.
