AGCO Approves Two New Break Open Ticket Types

2019-11-20 10:32:37 AM

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has approved two new break open ticket types (BN31 and SP44) that includes unique expense maximums. The unique expense maximums are not available to existing ticket types.

The tickets were developed by the charitable gaming sector, through the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association (OCGA) and Break Open Ticket Program Management Alliance (BOTPMA) with the support of associated Ontario charities.

A break open ticket, also known as Nevada tickets or pull tabs, is related to the Lottery & Gaming branch of the AGCO. It is a device made of cardboard that has cover window tabs behind, which are symbols revealed by tearing open the cover tab. The winning combination of symbols is specified on the back of tickets.

The Registrar of Alcohol, Gaming and Racing may only issue a license to an eligible charitable or religious organization for a number of lotteries, such as break open ticket lotteries where the licensed organization has a provincial mandate – this type of license authorizes the sale of break open tickets from one location in each Ontario municipality.

A municipality may issue a license to eligible local charitable or religious organizations where the break open tickets are not to be sold together with another gaming event.
