Can someone who lives outside Saskatchewan buy a ticket?
This lottery is intended for residents of Saskatchewan. Tickets may only be purchased and mailed within the province.
What happens if I cannot pick up my prize in person?
Arrangements can be made to have a prize shipped to you freight collect. Arrangements can also be made for someone else to claim your prize with your written approval and proper identification.
What would happen if a "bad" payment was made for a ticket (i.e. NSF cheque)?
Only tickets that have been paid for and/or have been verified as paid for are eligible to be entered for the respective draw(s). A minimum of one week is allowed between our ticket sales deadline and the draw date(s). This time period allows for all forms of payment to be verified and processed. If for any reason a payment is returned, the ticket will be deemed invalid if payment cannot be made prior to the draw.
If I win, is my ticket still in for other draws?
Yes, after each draw (including the Bonus and Early Bird draws) the winner is recorded and the ticket number returns for all subsequent draws.
Is my ticket purchase tax deductible?
No. Prize winnings are not taxable; therefore, tickets are not tax deductible.
Do I have to take my prize as is or can I just take the cash?
Prizes must be accepted as awarded. There are no cash alternatives unless otherwise stated in the lottery brochure.

If I win the house, do I have to live in it or can I sell it?
Once the home is awarded to the winner(s), they do not have to live in it. Any prize won can be sold if the winner wishes to do so.
If I sell the house (or any other prize), do I have to pay tax on the sale amount?
Lottery winnings are considered windfalls, not capital gains and are not taxable in Canada. If the home winner decides to sell the showhome, he or she does not have to live in the home for any amount of time before selling. Consult a tax professional for specific advice on this matter.
If I win a vacation prize but cannot travel, can I just take the cash?
Prize must be accepted as awarded with no cash alternatives available, although travel prizes ARE TRANSFERABLE, so you may give it or sell it to someone else.
How long do I have to claim my prize?
All prizes should be claimed within one (1) year of the applicable draw date. In the event that winners have not claimed their prizes within that period, and after reasonable attempts have been made to contact that winner (i.e. telephone, mail), then the prize will be submitted to a charity approved by the SLGA.
Are the prizes donated?
No. All prizes are purchased by the Foundations using the tender process.
