FAQs

We understand you may have questions regarding how our online fundraising lotteries work. Let’s try to clear some those up.

How does The Lotto Factory Global’s license work?

The Lotto Factory Global (TLF Global Ltd) has been granted an Interactive Gaming Licence from the Quebec based, Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC). The KGC licence allows TLF Global Ltd to offer a variety of online (interactive) gaming products directly and/or on behalf of organizations in multiple jurisdictions around the world. TLF Global is based in Alderney, Channel Islands, and operates using licensed gaming software provided by, New Brunswick based The Lotto Factory Incorporated.

Aren’t you based in Canada?

The Lotto Factory technology company is, yes. We are born and raised here, all of us. Our partner company, The Lotto Factory Global, licenses our software, which enables it to fundraise on behalf of non-profit organizations. We’re one big happy family.

Do I need a lottery license of my own?

Not at all. We run the online lottery sites on your behalf.

Do my clients need to be in the same province as my organization to play my lottery?

That’s the best part! Unlike jurisdictionally issued licenses, The Lotto Factory Global’s players can play anywhere in Canada. Often times provincial regulations will limit your users to being in the same jurisdictional region as your organization. We’re not limited by that whatsoever. Better yet, our sites can be played from just about anywhere in the world save for a few restrictions!

Can I use my own jurisdictional license regardless?

Absolutely! However, there are a few things to consider. Often times provincial regulations can limit how your players play and what payment processors they can use, amongst other things.

I’m in the United States, can I still use your software?

100%, yes but in select states. You will, however, need to obtain a license from your own jurisdiction. The Lotto Factory Global’s license doesn’t allow for operation in the United States at this time but you are able to use your state/county license if permitted and leverage our solution.

What’s the difference between a Classic 50/50 and a Progressive 50/50 lottery?

In a Classic 50/50 tickets are purchased for a single event and do not carry over to future events. There will be a guaranteed winner of 50% of the revenue generated at the completion of each draw.

In a Progressive 50/50, a user purchases a ticket and that number remains active for a full year from the date of last purchase. All eligible tickets, whether they have purchases for that draw or not, are entered into the draw. If the number drawn does not have a purchase for that draw it is classified as a non-winner and the jackpot rolls over to the next draw increasing the prize pot. The owner of the ticket misses out on the prize money for that draw because they didn't play against their number. There is no guaranteed winner in a Progressive 50/50 draw aside from the first week.
