WHEEL OF FORTUNE® LOTTO LOTTERY GAME CONDITIONS

These Game Conditions apply, until amended or revised, to the WHEEL OF FORTUNE LOTTO lottery game.

1.0 Rules

1.1 WHEEL OF FORTUNE® LOTTO is governed by the Rules Respecting Lottery Games of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (the “Corporation”) which are available upon request and which include limitations of liability.

1.2 Words used in the WHEEL OF FORTUNE® LOTTO Game Conditions which are used in the Rules Respecting Lottery Games shall have the same meaning as those used in the Rules Respecting Lottery Games.

2.0 Game Participation

2.1 In WHEEL OF FORTUNE® LOTTO:

  1. “Category” means the group of thirty-nine (39) Lotto Words for the draw component of the game. There are six (6) Categories of Lotto Words available for the WHEEL OF FORTUNE® LOTTO game.
  2. “Instant Prize Wheel” means a circle with twenty-four (24) sectors, with each sector representing a monetary prize or a “0” (zero) representing a non-winner for the instant component of the game.
  3. “Lotto Words” means the thirty-nine (39) words associated with a specific Category for the draw component of the game. For the purpose of the draw, each Lotto Word will be associated with a numerical number from one (1) to thirty-nine (39), inclusive;
  4. “selection” means a sector on the Instant Prize Wheel and six (6) Lotto Words from the same Category.

2.2 The WHEEL OF FORTUNE® LOTTO game consists of two components, an instant component and a draw component.

2.3 The instant component of the game features a spin of the Instant Prize Wheel, which may be shown on the customer display screen of the retailer terminal.

2.4 The draw component of the game features six (6) Lotto Words from the same Category of words.

2.5 The Corporation shall announce the Category of Lotto Words for the draw component of the game for the draw date(s). Unless otherwise specified by the Corporation, the Category shall be Canadian Things.

2.6 On occasion, the Corporation may announce and make available a non-monetary prize on the Instant Prize Wheel and replace the $10,000 top prize on the instant portion of the game.

2.7 A player may participate by Quick Pick play only.

2.8 A player may only purchase one selection per ticket, at a cost of $2 per ticket.

2.9 For each ticket requested and paid for, the on-line system shall:

  1. choose for the player a sector of the Instant Prize Wheel and six (6) Lotto Words from the same Category;
  2. display on the customer display screen of the retailer’s terminal (when available):
    1. a graphic of the Instant Prize Wheel as it is spinning, followed by a graphic of the Instant Prize Wheel with a pointer pointing to the sector of the wheel where it stopped spinning, (the Instant Prize Wheel spinning on the customer display screen of the retailer’s terminal is for entertainment purposes and has no bearing on whether a prize will be won; instant prize wins are determined by a random number generator.).

    2. the Category and the six (6) Lotto Words for the draw component of the game;
    3. the applicable draw date the ticket is eligible for;
    4. the time (Eastern time) the ticket is printed by the retailer’s terminal (which may be different than the time in the central computer-controlled on-line system, that directly control the terminals);
    5. a message that will display whether the ticket is a winner or a non-winner on the instant component of the game;
    6. the dollar amount wagered; and
    7. other information pertinent to the game.

3.0 The Draw

3.1 Unless otherwise announced by the Corporation, on every day from Monday to Sunday, inclusive, the Corporation shall draw at random, by electronic means, six (6) numbers from the class of thirty-nine (39) consecutive numbers from one (1) to thirty-nine (39). The on-line system shall then convert each of the numbers drawn to their associated Lotto Word for the Category for that draw. The associated Lotto Words are referred to as the “winning Lotto Words” or the “winning numbers”. The draw shall be for the draw component of the game.

Should the aggregate of the prizes on the draw portion of the game that are available to be won by all winning tickets in any draw result in the draw portion of the game exceeding two million dollars ($2,000,000), the prize amounts on the draw portion of the game are reduced and are determined in proportion to the amount that would, except for this provision, otherwise have been won on the draw.
