Lottery Licensing

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission (AGCO) is responsible for administering the lottery licensing program in the province - municipalities and the AGCO are responsible for issuing lottery licenses to eligible charitable and religious organizations. A manual is available online.

  • Media bingo events with prizes up to $5,500;
  • Break open tickets for local organizations;
  • Raffle lotteries for total prizes of $50,000 and under; and
  • Bazaar lotteries which include: wheels of fortune with a maximum bet of $2.00, raffles not exceeding $500, and bingo events up to $500
