The lottery is a form of entertainment, not a means to fulfill a financial need. You can’t control or improve the chances of winning, but you can stay in control of your play by deciding how much to spend.
Balance your play with other fun activities and play the lottery for entertainment or as a social activity. When you make a plan, you are more likely to stay within your set limit and not miss out on the other things you need or want to do.
You can only buy lottery tickets with cash, debit cards or a bank account.
When you buy our games online, you have the option to set deposit limits. A decrease in your deposit limit will be effective immediately. An increase in your deposit limit will be effective in 48 hours.
When you buy our games online, you have the option to exclude yourself from purchasing lottery tickets. You may temporarily or permanently exclude yourself through our responsible gaming tools or by contacting the NCEL Online Play Support Center at 1-866-934-0289.
