1. SET A BUDGET

Playing an INSTANT ticket is a form of gambling. They’re often impulse purchases, so it can help to plan how much you’re willing to spend in a week, like part of your entertainment budget.

Tip

It’s easy to lose track of smaller purchases, so keeping a record of how much you spend and win can help you stay on budget.

3. CHECK YOUR TICKET

A hand holds a mobile phone in front of a ticket checker where players will verify their tickets.

After scratching, scan your ticket barcode using the ticket checker at OLG authorized retailers or ask a participating retailer to scan it at the lottery terminal. You can also scan it with the OLG Lottery App.

Tip

Don’t forget to sign your ticket!

4. WATCH

If the prize won is “CHIP” on your INSTANT PLINKO ticket, visit any OLG retail location to validate your ticket. Upon validation of a “CHIP” winner, watch the animated chip drop on the lottery terminal screen. When the animated chip lands, your prize will be displayed: from $10 to $10,000, or PLINKO.

5. DROP

A real PLINKO board is shown where players will drop a chip if they qualify.

If the animated in-store prize won is PLINKO, you qualify to win a chip drop on a real PLINKO board at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto for a guaranteed win ranging from $100,000 to $500,000.
