BOT Admin Fee on Charity Revenue Ends on June 1, 2019

It’s official! The BOT Admin Fee will no longer be collected on charity purchases of Break Open Tickets invoiced on or after June 1, 2019.  That means that as of June 1, 2019, BOT charities and non-profits will no longer see the Admin Fee on their invoices and will retain that money as part of their net proceeds. 

The official AGCO Information Bulletin No. 93 which includes some additional details about the process and AGCO contact information, is available by clicking here.

If you have questions or are experiencing issues, we’re here to help.  Patricia Petrolo, our Member Services Coordinator, is available at or, by calling, 905-539-0065.

Thanks again to the Government of Ontario for making this exciting decision to support charitable fundraising.   We are especially grateful to Minister Vic Fedeli, Attorney General Caroline Mulroney, Minister Rod Phillips, MPP Lindsey Park and their staff and to all of the charities that supported our request through emails, letters, and signing up to our website.
