Provincial Government Announces Launch of Online Lottery Licence Applications

The Provincial Government is today launching an online process for not-for-profit and charitable organizations to more easily apply for a lottery licence.

Located at, the new online application provides step-by-step instructions and lets applicants track the status of their application and allows licence holders to submit their financial reports.

Once the client submits the application, it is automatically entered into the system, reducing time spent managing incomplete or incorrect forms, and increasing turnaround times for lottery licence applications. Online applications also decrease paper, printing and postage costs without affecting frontline services. 

Each year, the Provincial Government receives more than 3,600 ticket lottery requests

This is the second publicly available system launched under the five-year Digital Way Forward that was launched in April 2018. In March 2019, government released a MyGovNL pilot project for Motor Registration Division, which allows users to manage their licence and vehicle renewals in one combined online platform.

The Digital Way Forward is the Provincial Government’s plan to enhance government services for residents and businesses. Through this plan, government will fully realize the new approach of “One Client. One GovNL. One Relationship.” The public will see government as one organization regardless of the individual or department with whom they interact. The plan will be fully implemented by 2022-23.

“The new online lottery licence application will help not-for-profit and charitable organizations apply for lottery licences more easily and efficiently.”
Honourable Sherry Gambin-Walsh
Minister of Service NL

“My Application for lotteries is the latest system in our government’s ongoing five-year Digital Government plan. With each new advancement we get closer to the future of service delivery in Newfoundland and Labrador, and we look forward to bringing the full vision of the Digital Way Forward to reality in the coming years.”
Honourable Tom Osborne
Minister of Finance and President of Treasury Board
Minister Responsible for the Office of the Chief Information Officer 

"As one of the largest users of lottery applications in the province, SportNL members will find the new online system a streamlined and efficient method for the sport lottery application process. Given the large number of volunteers that access the application process, it's important to make the process as efficient and effective as possible ."
