(EDMONTON, AB) – With exciting, recent changes to raffle rules in Alberta, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) 50/50 Raffle, presented by RE/MAX is now available online to Oilers fans across Alberta.  Beginning on August 1, and for each of the subsequent Oilers game, the new 50/50 raffle will give fans a chance to win the same big 50/50 jackpot fans have enjoyed at Rogers Place, while helping raise important dollars for the EOCF to reinvest in the community. The new 50/50 program supports the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) and is available for all Oilers games throughout the 2020 Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Edmonton Oilers 50/50 prizes at Rogers Place have historically been some of the largest in the NHL, regularly exceeding $100,000 per game. The average 50/50 jackpot at Oilers games during the 2019-20 season was a take home prize of $87,688. The biggest jackpot this season was on New Year’s Eve against the New York Rangers when the take home prize reached $255,817.50. The Oilers largest jackpot in history was $336,995 on April 12, 2017 at the first ever playoff game at Rogers Place.

Buying an online 50/50 ticket is a simple process, similar to most online purchases. Tickets sales open at 9:00 AM MST on Oilers game days (Aug. 1, 3, 5) and end at 10:30 PM MST on the same day. The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) raffle license number is 563604.

The winning ticket number will be posted on the EOCF website at www.EdmontonOilers.com/5050 no later than 11:30 PM MST on the Oilers game day. 

Tickets can be purchased by individuals 18 years or older, located within Alberta’s Provincial borders at the time of purchase.  All ticket sales are final and ticket buyers will receive a receipt via email a few minutes after purchasing, which will list all numbers associated with the purchased tickets.
Fans can go to www.EdmontonOilers.com/5050 and select from the following four ticket pack options:

  • Regular: Five dollars ($5.00) for one (1) ticket
  • Discount 1: Ten dollars ($10.00) for ten (10) tickets
  • Discount 2: Twenty dollars ($20.00) for sixty (60) tickets
  • Discount 3: Fifty dollars ($50.00) for two hundred (200) tickets

Funds from the 50/50 program are split between the winner and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation.  The Edmonton Oilers Community in turn reinvests the net proceeds back into community initiatives to support organizations who focus their efforts on education, health and wellness and hockey programming for youth.
