SS west has 3k points for $10 spent. However you have to buy the lottery from the cashiers and not the BCLC booth usually inside or beside the superstores.

I don't understand the down votes or the pearl clutching. This is a good deal, play responsibly, you're an adult if you are eligible for this.

Statistically you're trading more money for less, even with this discount, so it is the textbook definition of a bad deal.

too much over-analysis in this thread...

It's a lottery ticket... if you enjoy buying them (like me) every once in a while, this is a really really good deal...

If you have a problem... then stop and don't. If you don't... enjoy!

No, this is a good deal if you were going to buy it anyway. You are buying a week of day dreaming about winning millions of dollars knowing full well you probably won't win.

If you are a responsible adult, I don't see the difference between buying this and going crazy over Buck a beer deals.

Agreed. You're basically getting $2 for every $10 ticket you buy, better than nothing at all lol...which in most cases is the reality.

The points are only for those pre-printed cards available at the cashier lanes.

Not sure if the "regular" tickets are available at the checkout.

I remember buying lottery tickets from the customer service counter in Ontario, but in Calgary the lottery counters inside the stores are independently owned, so no Optimum Points. You can’t even use their debit machines without paying a $0.50 fee. Don’t think this applies in Alberta
