To sell OLG lottery products on behalf of the OLG or break open tickets for a licensed charity, you must register with AGCO.


The AGCO assesses the level of risk of each application. We call this risk-based licensing. To learn more, read information bulletin no. 71.


There’s no fee to register as a seller.

Step 1: Prepare your application

You must have an OLG Retailer Agreement for each location you sell lottery products. Remember to include on your application the unique retailer location number that OLG gave you. 

You’ll need to submit these things:

  • a valid government issued picture I.D
  • copy of your signed OLG agreement for the retail location in your application
  • the Retailer Location Number (RL #) the OLG assigned to your site (found on your OLG Retailer Agreement)
  • personal information form for each person listed on your OLG agreement
  • gaming assistant application for each person you put on the application who doesn’t have a registration
  • your mailing address and the physical address of the retail location
  • your business name and business operating name
  • what lottery products you want to sell (e.g., scratch tickets, Lotto Max, Lotto 6/49, break open tickets for someone with a charitable lottery licence, or hospital foundation 50/50 e-raffle tickets - convenience stores only)
  • a list of people who will oversee the sale of lottery products or break open tickets, including partners in a partnership, general partners in a limited partnership, officers, directors or shareholders of a corporation, or board members of an association who are listed as Principals on the OLG Retailer Application or OLG Agreement (these people must complete personal information forms too)

You need a new application for each retail location.

Step 2: Apply online

If you’re applying for the first time you need to set up an iAGCO account. To get a lottery retailer (seller) registration, create an account on the iAGCO portal. Once you’ve set up your iAGCO account, you can apply.

Once you’re registered as a lottery seller, you’ll want to operate your site in the right way.

You must meet the registrar’s standards for your registration. You also must follow any related laws and regulations.
