Who buys lottery tickets in Ontario? As players get in on this Friday’s LOTTO SUPER 7 $25 million Bonus Jackpot (April 4, 2003), research from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLGC) on the demographics of lottery players shows that lotteries are highly popular with adults from every walk of life.
Lotteries have very broad appeal with the adults of Ontario. Market research shows lottery players closely reflect the demographics of the province as a whole. In terms of education and income, lottery players really are the same as the general population.
OLGC surveys approximately 3,600 people each year on their lottery purchasing. 68% of Ontario adults are regular lottery players (they’ve played recently and plan to play again) and 28% of adults play at least once a week.
As a group, lottery players report a mean household income of $56,640 with all people surveyed reporting a mean household income of $55,450. That finding is consistent with 58% of players working full-time outside the home as compared to 53% of all those surveyed report working full-time. In terms of education, 27% of lottery players have completed community college compared to 26% of the general population. A slightly higher portion of the general population reported having completed university (30% to 35% of players). Thailand Lottery Tickets and Casino – เว็บตรง ไม่ผ่านเอเย่นต์

Tickets for the draw are available at more than 7,800 retail locations throughout Ontario until 9:00 PM, Friday, April 4, 2003. It is a provincial offence, punishable by fines, to sell OLGC lottery tickets to anyone under 18 years of age.
It’s just a game. Play responsibly.
