You will continue to have your chosen deduction while ticket quantities remain. Should your ticket package not be available for deduction due to quantities, you will be given notice that your deduction will be ending, and you will have an opportunity to select an alternate ticket package.

Payroll deduction: Payments are deducted from your paycheque each pay period. Online onetime payment: Visa/Mastercard Debit (if applicable), Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover Card.

Once you enroll in the Payroll Deduction Program, deductions will continue to be made from each paycheque.
Deduction amounts are dependent on the ticket package selected.  For example; if you have selected the set of 8 tickets for $20, $20 will be deducted each pay period and 8 tickets will be entered into the draw each pay period.

Your ticket purchase will be deducted from your paycheque on the next available pay period. This will occur provided that; the ticket processing centre is able to validate your employee ID and only where tickets quantities are available at time of enrollment.

Your deduction will appear on your pay advice as “WinWin Staff Lottery”. Please click here for an example. <Insert copy of sample pay stub>
