Canada Atlantic Lottery Announces Anniversary Online Promo

Atlantic Lottery of Canada has reached a landmark. It has crossed 10 years of offering responsible Internet gambling in the provinces of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador. In 2004 the corporation had introduced the product PlaySphere that allowed users to play the lottery over the Internet. Now an announcement from its headquarters in Moncton, New Brunswick, states that Atlantic Lottery is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of PlaySphere and wants to give back to its players to honour the occasion.

Before announcing the details of the promotion, Atlantic Lottery thanked the Canadian players for their support. The promotion will run from August 22 to September 30 and will give players a chance to win prizes. With every $2 purchase on the Atlantic Lottery web site players will be entered into the corporation’s popular 2Chance draw that offers a grand prize of $250,000. Any WebCash vouchers purchased from Atlantic Lottery retailers to fund a player’s account will be entered into a draw for $1,000 in WebCash. The purchase has to be of $10 or more and has to be made during the promotion period. The retail location that sold the winning WebCash voucher will receive a $1,000 prize as well.

On this occasion, James Reilly, Atlantic Lottery’s Senior Manager, eCommerce, said that in 2004 they became the first lottery in North America to sell products online. He added, “For 10 years now, Atlantic Canadians have been enjoying a range of entertaining products with us, online.” Today Atlantic Lottery offers players big jackpot lottery games like LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX online and online-only offerings iBingo and Pick'n Click. Atlantic Lottery is the only legal, regulated Internet gambling site in Atlantic Canada today that offers players the convenience of playing at home. On Atlantic Lottery’s anniversary plans, Reilly said, “We’re excited about giving our players a second chance to win and including our retailers in the anniversary.” He hoped that both groups would respond to the offer and enjoy the celebration.

In 2004 PlaySphere was launched on its own separate web site. Today, the current Atlantic Lottery web site offers a number of products. At the same time it takes pride in having one of the most responsible Internet gambling sites in North America with a set of responsible gambling tools that aid in players making informed choices. The profits generated from the Atlantic Lottery online products go back to the four Atlantic Canadian provinces.
