How much does a retailer make for selling lottery tickets?

Ok, if you go in and drop $2 on a 649, how much does the retailer get for selling it?

Ontario
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation retail network is comprised of 7,762 full service retailers (on line and instant products) and 2,524 instant only retailers for a total of 10,286 accounts.

Retailers earn a 5% commission for online sales and 8% for off-line sales. In addition, OLGC retailers are entitled to a 2% cashing bonus for online prize redemptions valued at less than $300 and 3% for off-line prize redemptions of less than $200.

Off-line (instant only) retailers are entitled to receive the following commissions: For selling a $1,000,000 prize - 0.15%; $500,000 - 0.25%; $250,000 - 0.40%. Prizes of $100,000, $50,000, $25,000 and $10,000 receive 0.01% commission.

online retailers are entitled to receive the following commissions: 1st prize on Lotto 6/49, Lotto Super 7, Lottario - $1,000 plus $100 for each time the previous jackpot was not won (divided by the number of winning retailers in Ontario); 2nd prize on Lotto 6/49, Lotto Super 7, Lottario - $500 (divided by the number of winning retailers in Ontario); 1st prize on Encore and Winner Take All - $1,000.
Retailer incentive programs are run periodically, primarily during new game launches.
