If you want to give the gift of (potential) riches this holiday season, you can.
The Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation (OLG) recently announced that it has a full suite of holiday lottery products available in time for Christmas.
This year, OLG’s Merry Millions lottery game offers 408 prizes ranging from $1,000 to $1 million and because of its raffle-style structure, all prizes are guaranteed to be won.
A limited number of tickets are available at OLG retailers across Ontario until Jan. 9, 2024, and shoppers who purchase tickets before Dec. 12 are eligible to win a $50,000 early bird draw.
“At OLG, we place the customer at the centre of everything we do. Players asked for more chances to win, and we delivered on this request by reimagining existing games and offering new ones like Merry Millions,” said Nancy Kennedy, OLG’s chief lottery and customer officer, in a statement.
“This holiday season, OLG offers something for everyone at every price point, blending the excitement of possibilities with the importance of giving back to Ontario communities.”
All profits from Merry Millions are reinvested into Ontario to support health care, the treatment and prevention of problem gambling and support for amateur athletes.
