The Schedule is issued pursuant to Section 3.1 of the Break Open Ticket Terms and Conditions.

Revised: This Schedule is effective as of January 4, 2022

Part A: Associated Expense Maximums — for ticket types listed in this schedule

The expense maximums prescribed in the Schedule of Approved Break Open Ticket (BOT) Types and Associated Expense Maximums are percentages of BOT Win (gross wager minus prizes paid) and are applicable to all BOT types approved by the Registrar of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) for sale in Ontario. (See Section A of this schedule)

As announced in the December 14, 2021 Information Bulletin: Reforms to Stabilize and Modernize Charitable Break Open Tickets, an increase in expense maximums for Gaming Equipment Suppliers will take effect on January 4, 2022. See Section A of this schedule for a complete list of BOT expense maximums and approved BOT types.

Part B: Expense Maximums and New Revenue Model - for all new ticket types approved in 2022 and beyond

The December 14, 2021 Information Bulletin announced that the AGCO has approved a new revenue model for the BOT sector to provide a more flexible, modern approach to expenses. This model will modernize the way expenses are calculated by streamlining and simplifying the BOT administration process for charities. It will also protect the charitable share of BOT fundraising revenue.

This approach is applicable to all new ticket types developed by the sector and submitted to and approved by the AGCO in 2022 and beyond. The new revenue model will apply to all new ticket types, at any price point and prize board percentage.

See Section B for more detail about the new revenue model.

As per the Break Open Ticket Licence Terms and Conditions, Bingo Event Tickets may only be played as part of licensed bingo events conducted in registered bingo halls or premises exempt from registration and Seal Card Tickets may only be played in premises where a licensed bingo event is being held or in premises used by the members of a service where the club is licensed to sell break open tickets.

Ticket Types AG81, AG82, AG83, AG84, AG85, AG86, AG87, AG88, SP29, SP30, SP31, SP32, SP33, SP34, SP35, SP37, SP38, SP39, SP42, SP43, BN80, BN81, BN82, BN83, BN84, BN85, BN86, BN87, BN88, BN89, BN90, BN91, BN92, BN93, BN94, BN95, BN96 and PG2 are associated with Progressive Bingo Event and Progressive Seal Card Games. As per the Terms and Conditions for Charitable Gaming Events Conducted and Managed in Class A and Class B Bingo Halls and Pooling Class C Bingo Halls, these ticket types may only be played as part of licensed Charitable Gaming Events.

Section B: Expense Maximums and New Revenue Model - for all new ticket types approved in 2022 and beyond

  • “Net win” will be calculated as gross wager, minus prizes, minus ticket cost, to equal the net win:
    • “Gross wager” = ticket price multiplied by ticket count
    • “Ticket cost” = the actual and auditable manufacturer-invoiced cost of the tickets plus HST
  • The charity and suppliers will split the resulting “net win” with 50% going to each party. Charities and suppliers will pay expenses out of their 50% portion of the net win.
  • Under the supplier 50% portion of the net win:
    • Separate expense lines, such as the GES category, are eliminated.
    • A variety of supplier expenses are paid (see the table below).
    • The seller portion of the expense maximums will be paid by the supplier. Suppliers will have the business flexibility to negotiate seller commission directly with retailers.
  • Under the charity 50% portion of the net win:
    • Separate expense lines, such as charity administration, are eliminated. The charity will pay for expenses, including administrative costs and the licence fee, from their 50% portion of the net win.

 

This table outlines the new revenue model for all new tickets submitted to the AGCO for approval starting in 2022 and beyond:

 

The supplier pays for the following expenses (from 50% of net win):

  • Supplier expenses
  • Seller commission (it becomes variable)
  • Shipping and other expenses
  • Dispenser-related costs

The charity pays for the following expenses (from 50% of net win):

  • Licence fee
  • Charity administration costs

 

Note that this new revenue model will apply to a variety of locations where BOTs are sold, including a break open ticket seller (third party retailer), the licensee’s own location, and non-pooling bingo halls.

For new ticket types submitted to the AGCO in 2022 and beyond, licensees who own the location where BOTs are sold or licensees in non-pooling bingo halls, will be able to collect up to half of the net win to cover their supplier costs.

The AGCO will continue to update this schedule on an ongoing basis as new ticket types are approved.
