Media Alert - Tomorrow's LOTTO 6/49 draw worth an estimated $30 million!

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON, March 12 /CNW/ - Tomorrow night's LOTTO 6/49 draw is for a jackpot estimated at $30 million! Players can purchase tickets at authorized OLG retailers until 9 p.m. tomorrow.

Ontarians continue to win often, and win big with LOTTO 6/49 - like Brian Wall of Kincardine - who claimed $4 million from the February 13, 2010 draw. Since its launch in June 1982, Ontario players have won more than $8.8 billion in prizes, including 1,176 jackpot wins.

Consumers are reminded that lottery retailers are not allowed to validate a ticket unless the customer has signed it. Signature boxes located on the front of all on-line lottery tickets, such as LOTTO 6/49, make it easier for customers to remember to sign their tickets at the time of purchase.

Group players should always identify each group member with a signature on group play forms to confirm their contribution. Helpful Group Play forms are available at www.OLG.ca.

It is a provincial offence, punishable by fines, to sell OLG lottery tickets to anyone under 18 years of age.

OLG is a provincial agency responsible for province-wide lottery games and gaming facilities. Since 1975, OLG lotteries, Casinos, Slots, and Resort Casinos have generated more than $28 billion for the benefit of the Province of Ontario. Gaming proceeds support Ontario's hospitals, amateur sport, recreational and cultural activities, communities, provincial priority programs such as health care and education, and local and provincial charities and non-profit organizations through the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
