Tickets for the St-Boniface Hospital Foundation’s 2011 MegaMillion Lotto are now available for purchase online.
An amendment to the Manitoba Gaming Control Commission’s Raffle Terms and Conditions has made it possible for charitable organizations to accept lottery ticket orders online. The amendment took effect on January 17.
Tickets are $100 each or three for $250. Of course, you can still get tickets the old fashioned way by phone at (204) 944-7150 or by fax at (204) 231-0041.
Tickets purchased before February 27, 2011, will be entered in the Early Bird Draws on March 3, 2011, as well as the March 17 Main Draws.
Money raised from the $1 million lottery will go toward funding innovative patient care programs, world-renowned medical and clinical research activities, and the purchase of state-of-the-art medical equipment.
