Once you complete the sign-up process, a confirmation email will be sent to your email address (the same email address you used when signing up). This email will contain a link to activate your account.

Log in to your Winner’s Edge account, scroll down to Email Preferences and click the “Update Email Preferences” button to review your account preferences. Under the Winner’s Edge Email heading, make your desired changes, click “Change Email Preferences” and your selections will be updated.

You can choose to receive Jackpot alert emails for just the big Jackpot amounts by selecting “High Jackpots only” when you sign up or when you edit your preferences. If you select this option, you will receive Jackpot alert emails only when the LOTTO MAX Jackpot amount is $20 million or more, or when the LOTTO 6/49 amount is $10 million or more.

If you select the option to receive newsletters, you will receive updates about lottery products, news and contests.

You can opt out of our email program at any time by either using the unsubscribe link contained in any OLG Winner’s Edge email sent to you or by logging in to your account and updating your email preferences.

If you wish to receive invitations for research or surveys, select that option under your email preferences. You’ll be helping us improve our products and services.

Email newsletters will provide lottery news, such as information about new lottery games, upcoming promotions, winners and exclusive offers and contests. Sports news will also be offered including information about coupons, PROLINE+ mobile offering, and upcoming seasons and games.

Your information will be kept, and your account maintained as an active account, as long as you are participating in one or more email services (for example participating in email subscriber-exclusive contests), contests, coupons or other services associated with your Winner’s Edge account. We will also continue to keep your information as long as you are still reading our email messages and if we do not receive frequent bounce-backs from your email address.

If you are not subscribed to or participating in a service, and your email account has not been active for a period of two years from the date of last activity or original registration, whichever comes later, we will remove your records from our mailing list and we will no longer email to that email account, unless you re-subscribe to our email services.

Our coupons are open to anyone who is a resident of Ontario over the age of 18 with a valid email address. Coupons are eligible to players with a Winner’s Edge account. To access your coupon, sign up for a Winner’s Edge account or, if you have an account, log in now. If you aren’t a Winner’s Edge member, register using your first name, last name, address, phone number and personal email address for account verification; your coupon will be available once you complete registration.

Coupons may be subject to additional terms and conditions set forth by OLG. Redemption restrictions will vary depending on the promotion. Customers can review these terms and conditions prior to redemption.

The coupon offer can be redeemed by anyone age 18 years or older. Government-issued photo identification may be required.

There is not one specific person who must use the coupon, but it has unique barcodes and can only be redeemed once. If you share your coupon with a family member or friend after you have already redeemed, they will not be able to redeem the coupon again.

Coupons can be redeemed at any OLG Lottery Retailer.

No, the coupon has no cash surrender value.

If a retailer has refused to accept and scan your coupon, please call the OLG at 1-800-387-0098 and provide the details (date, time, store name, address and city).

Please refer to the expiry date on your coupon. Valid only while quantities last.

If your coupon has already been redeemed, is on Hold, or is expired, a retailer cannot process it. If you still have concerns, please call the OLG at 1-800-387-0098 and provide the details (date, time, store name, address, city and coupon number).

Yes, you need internet access to receive your coupon.

Yes, if you can view the coupon code on your mobile device, our lottery scanner will be able to scan the coupon.

No. You will need to display the coupon on your mobile device with the barcodes fully visible in the screen area. You can then scan the coupon's CUSTOMER CODE using the Customer facing barcode reader. If that doesn’t work, we suggest you print your coupon and have your retailer scan the RETAILER CODE in their optical reader.

Ensure the entire barcode is visible on your mobile device. In order for the retailer to scan your coupon, the screen must be bright enough to read the barcode. If your display is not bright enough, try increasing the brightness on your screen. For further assistance, please contact OLG at 1-800-387-0098.

As a retailer, you can redeem your coupon but not at your own location. You must go to a location other than your place of work to redeem it.
