The newest product from the Poker OLG takes a brand new approach to instant lottery tickets! OLG Poker Lotto is a new and innovative way for Ontario residents to win thousands of dollars instantly.
The game was launched on Tuesday, September 7 with more than 200 000 tickets sold. The new game is geared towards young adults in the 20s, the target audience of most online poker websites. Poker seems to be a craze among this demographic and the OLG has made a wise decision by launching the OLG Poker Lotto.
Unfortunately, not everyone is pleased with the new game. The NDP called on the OLG to stop producing new lottery games considering that the commission is also looking into the option of online gambling. Some view it as a desperate cash grab, as the Liberal government attempts to dig itself out of its exorbitant $20 billion deficit.
The fact still remains, however, that the game is a fun and easy way to win big. Players can use their ticket to win up to $5000 instantly as well as in the nightly draw, where they have the chance of winning up to $100 000. Additionally, because the game operates on exactly the same premise as video poker, the odds of winning are 1 in 3!
