Gaming Integrity Approvals and Documents

A lottery scheme is described (in part), in Section 206 of The Criminal Code (Canada), as being any game or proposal, scheme, plan, means, device, contrivance or operation in which consideration (money payable for the lot or ticket to participate) is paid for a chance (there must be an element of pure chance with no genuine skill required) to win a prize.  All patrons participating in a lottery scheme shall be afforded an equal opportunity of realizing the reward offered.

Integrity is defined within the Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Control Act to mean that a lottery scheme performs in such a manner that the scheme is fair, safe, secure, honest, and auditable.

LGCA Gaming Integrity regulates all provincial gaming in Manitoba and as such, ensures all lottery schemes, including the gaming supplies used, meets the standards of integrity.  Eligibility for approval is determined by evaluating the lottery scheme, its rules of play and the gaming classified equipment or product used.  The lottery scheme is also measured for integrity based on LGCA standards, minimum requirements and terms & conditions of approval.  When an application for approval is submitted by the Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation (MLLC), the lottery scheme is assessed and measured to issue approval to operate. 

Refer to the Gaming Equipment Classification List for all gaming equipment requiring approval prior to use.

The applicable standards in the sections on this website must be provided to the gaming supplier and/or manufacturer by MLLC, prior to purchasing any gaming supplies.

Once a lottery scheme is approved and offered for play, it is regularly inspected to ensure continued compliance with the terms and conditions of approval.
