COVID-19Retailers and kiosks suspend the sale of lotteries

Montréal, March 20, 2020 – In light of the Premier’s press briefing today and in following with its commitment to abide by the measures issued by the Government, Loto-Québec is taking steps to suspend the sale of lottery tickets and to deactivate its sales terminals as quickly as possible at retailers and in kiosks operated by non-profit organizations.

 

The Corporation is currently contacting its 8,500 retailers and kiosk operators in shopping centres to inform them of the details of this new measure. Loto-Québec is also coordinating with the other provinces relative to Canada-wide lotteries.

 

Loto-Québec reminds its customers that tickets can still be purchased and checked online at loteries.lotoquebec.com. All past purchases remain valid and ticket holders will take part in the draws for which their tickets were purchased.

 

With the health and wellbeing of its customers in mind, Loto-Québec, takes the current situation very seriously and will not hesitate to put into place additional measures as needed.

 

Loto-Québec will inform the public as soon as possible concerning the implementation of this new measure.
