    Ontarians win often, and win big with LOTTO 6/49. Since LOTTO 6/49 was
launched in June 1982, Ontario players have won more than $8.1 billion in
prizes including 1,113 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. With
INSTANT tickets, customers should continue to sign the back of those tickets
until a new signature box on the front is introduced for INSTANT tickets in
the coming months. 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
    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 $23 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.
