Players of two national lottery games can now purchase their tickets through a provincial gambling website.
PlayNow.com is equipped to sell tickets for Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max.
“This is an exciting addition to PlayNow.com, because it really increases convenience for players,” said Carolin Taubensee, executive general manager for the site. “Yet the player benefits go way beyond convenience.”
Players don’t have to worry about a lost or stolen ticket, because everything is digital. Purchased numbers are stored electronically in a player’s account and then checked automatically after the draw. Should a winning ticket come up, the player is notified by the website.
PlayNow.com was launched earlier this year by the Manitoba government to provide a secure online gambling alternative to overseas websites.
