A little bit about us

Atlantic Lottery

Our players have been having fun and "dreaming big" since 1976 when Atlantic Lottery started offering lottery games on behalf of the governments of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island. 

The game options have grown and changed over the years and so has our workforce! Today's Atlantic Lottery has more than 600 employees and offers everything from dare-to-dream draw games to online bingo; breakopen tickets to sports wagering; and games in social settings and on the Internet.

With games come winners – more than 90,000 big and small wins every day - but the best thing about lottery games is that when anyone plays, everyone benefits. 100% of our profits go back into our communities - Atlantic Lottery has returned more than $8.9 billion in profit back to our communities. Every day Atlantic Lottery's employees demonstrate our shared commitment to social responsibility, operational integrity and to making a difference across Atlantic Canada.
