Does NSGC give away cash prizes?
NSGC does not give away cash prizes directly to Nova Scotians. If you are contacted by someone offering you a cash prize from NSGC, or its former name the Nova Scotia Provincial Lotteries & Casino Corporation (NSPLCC), please know this is a scam. Trust your instincts and exercise caution with any calls or offers that seem too good to be true. You can find tips on how to protect yourself and actions to take if you’ve been targeted in a scam on the RCMP’s website.
