OLG's "Cadillac Riches" is a "Scratch & Lose" for Ontario taxpayers, automakers

David MenziesMission Specialist
 

At first blush, Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation's, "Cadillac Riches" may seem like a middle of the road lottery game but a little scratching reveals broken promises that should concern taxpayers.  

Due to a sourcing fiasco six years ago, promises were made by the Crown Corporation that any future gifting of motorized vehicles would be exclusively "made in Ontario", yet none of the Cadillacs being given away in this game are made in Ontario or even Canada.

Listen in as I look at even more broken promises and troubling decision making by Ontario's lottery monopoly.

But for the fkg idiot liberal douche bags in Ontario, this doesn’t seem to work. They’re so smart – like a fkg door stop.

I guess it could be worse with PIG WYNNE – she could be mentally retarded.

When you can gamble on line and the pay out is 95% why in Gods name would you buy an Ontario lottery that pays out 62% to 65%
If you like the Blue Jays to win you have to parlee 2 on the teams to win but they reduce your odds of winning if one of the teams tie you loose.
Ontario lottery is a fools game and only a fool would play. BUT again I still buy lotto max 55 million you can only dream Good Luck to all and don’t bet more than you can loose.

the olg, proline in particular, is run by incompetents, who are terrified that someone may actually win….the worst gamble in the country…. anyone who needs to bet sports should open an account with one of the many reputable internet books….set your own limit on winning and losing…true odds… not this olg nonsense

I see your concerns David, There is only one problem with this. You are fighting a battle from the bottom of the mountain, and there are 1000 foot straight walls cliffs you need to get your men up. While mortars and snipers are hitting you. It is possible to win but the casualties are going to be great. Try and find a different approach and you might win this battle.
