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.

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 www.botfairness.com website.
