Regional Economic Benefits

2015/16 saw us accomplish many milestones, helping us deliver on our vision of Making Atlantic Canada a Better Place.  

One of the ways we do that is by giving back 100% of our profit to the four provincial governments - $431.6 million this year.


In 2015-2016, we returned $431.6 million to our four shareholders.

        Nova Scotia $133 million
New Brunswick $132.2 million
Newfoundland & Labrador $148.5 million
Prince Edward Island $  17.9 million

TOTAL $431.6 million

We also awarded $405.5 million in prizes back to our players and contributed to the economy through salaries, retailer commissions and business expenses. We gave back in other ways as well, sponsoring nearly 95 events across the four provinces.
