in 2018 and the process for validating non-barcoded Breakopen tickets is slightly different than our other lottery games (draw-based, sports, or Scratch’N Win). Unlike our other games, Non-barcoded Breakopen tickets:
- are not validated on our lottery terminal
- cannot be checked on the self-checker
- must be redeemed at the store where they were purchased*
Retailers validate non-barcoded Breakopen tickets using face-validation. For each winning Breakopen ticket, the prize amount won is clearly identified and positioned in an orange win box over a non-winning symbol on the ticket. The prize amount indicated on the ticket is the prize amount that you will be paid by the Retailer when you claim your prize. Winning non-barcoded Breakopen tickets are not returned to the player when they are paid.
*With the exception of winning Bonus prizes. Winning Bonus prize tickets have a designated signature line, orange win box and text directing you to contact Atlantic Lottery’s Customer Care team. Retailers will direct you to contact Customer Care for prize claiming information. If you’re still feeling uncertain about the validation process, don’t be shy – give our Customer Care Centre team a call at 1-800-561-3942.
