Why should I sign up for a Lottery account?

Your lottery account is your exclusive ticket to all things OLG. Fully customizable to your unique preferences, you can opt-in to receive winning numbers and jackpot alerts, breaking lottery news and updates, the latest lottery contests, exclusive coupons and more. Signing up only takes a couple minutes, and it’s easy to change your account preferences or unsubscribe at any time.

Once you complete the sign-up process, a confirmation email will be sent to your email address (the same email address which you used when signing up for the service). This email will contain a link that you use to activate your account. This type of a "double opt-in" process is used to protect customers against false activations, for example where one person subscribes on another person's behalf or without that person's permission or knowledge.

Log in to your Lottery 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 instantly.

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 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. We send out short surveys only a few times a year but they can have a big impact.

Email newsletters will provide lottery news, such as information about new lottery games, upcoming promotions, winners and exclusive offers and contests.

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 Lottery 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.

Signing Up and Logging In

No. If you signed up for one of these contests then you already have an OLG Lottery account. You can log in to set your preferences at any time. Your Lottery account will continue to provide you access to all future OLG lottery contests.

If you receive this message, and you have not already signed up for an OLG Lottery account, it is possible that someone else has signed up using the same email address. An email address cannot be used by more than one person. If you believe this message is incorrect or require additional assistance, contact the OLG Support Centre at 1-800-387-0098.

You may have entered your email address or password incorrectly. Check that you haven't made any typos and that Caps Lock is off. Also make sure you haven't entered any spaces. If you continue to have an issue, go to the Forgot login page.
