After buying, patrons will be emailed a receipt with their 50/50 registered numbers from a Random Number Issuing System. No specific numbers can be given as numbers are generated randomly.

The winning ticket number will be selected by a Random Number Generator (RNG) system from all raffle numbers sold for the draw.

The amount of the 50/50 will be monitored on website and will be 50% of the total sales for that draw.

The winning number will be announced on website and on social media channels.

The winner will be contacted directly by a representative from the MICs Healthcare Foundation by phone and/or email. A mutually convenient date and time will be determined for ticket verification and to award the prize amount.

The winner must provide photo identification and verify his/her phone number and address in order to claim his/her prize. A printed copy of the entire order confirmation that was emailed by the Foundation will also be required as part of the verification process. All payments will be made by cheque.

The winning ticket holder has 6 months in which to claim their prize from the date of the draw their ticket was purchased for.

Once the certified winner is verified and provides identification with photo ID, he/she will be given a cheque in the amount of the declared prize which is, at minimum, 50% of the total sales for that draw. If the winner cannot provide photo ID, then the winning proceeds will be held until such identification can be provided.

In the event that no winner comes forward, the winning number will be held for 6 months. After that time period has elapsed, the prize will be donated back to the MICs Healthcare Foundation with the approval of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).

Ticket purchasers must be located in the province of Ontario at the time of purchase.

The above set of rules will be posted at each event.
