Why is there a scratch-off feature on breakopen tickets?

Manitoba continues to be one of the few markets that have a latex security seal on the outside of breakopen tickets. The security seal outside the ticket windows assures licensees, players and the LGA that the ticket has not been altered. Once the latex seal is removed, you can immediately see what the winning ticket is worth. Sellers and players should pay close attention to ensure that the latex seal has not been removed from the breakopen tickets.
