50/50 draw? There's an app for that
Province teams up with Leafs, Raptors in Toronto for digital draws
0 0


The province hopes that making 50/50 draws at sporting events in Toronto and Ottawa digital will bring is more cash for charities.

That means instead of buying tickets during the first bit of NHL and NBA games, you could but a virtual ticket through your phone. That way you can use debit or credit cards and have a longer period of time to buy in.

Officials expend this move to bring in an extra $10 million for local charities.

Queen's Park, along with the OLG, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment and the Ottawa Senators foundation are all behind this pilot project.

Finance Minister Charles Sousa says they'll test the new system at Maple Leafs, Raptors and Senators games. Once all the kinks are out, the technology will be available to bingo halls and other community events.
