A:
   There may be other times in the future when additional prizes associated with the Guaranteed Prize Draw function may be added to LOTTO 6/49 draws.

WHAT ARE THE ODDS OF WINNING THE ADDITIONAL GUARANTEED $1 MILLION PRIZE DRAWS? 
A:  
The odds for winning any one of the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize Draws are determined by the total number of Selections issued across Canada.  For example, if 5 million LOTTO 6/49 plays are issued, there would be 5 million Selections for the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize Draws, which means the odds of any one Selection being drawn for any of the Guaranteed Prize Draws would be 1 in 5 million.

CAN A PLAYER OPT OUT OF THE GUARANTEED $1 MILLION PRIZE DRAW?
A:  
No – players are automatically issued a Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection with every LOTTO 6/49 play purchased.  There is no way to purchase a ticket that does not include a Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection

WHY CAN'T I CHOOSE MY OWN GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW SELECTION?
A:
   To ensure there is only one winning Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection, every Selection must be unique.  If customers were to choose their own Selections, there would always be the possibility that two players could have the same winning Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection, and therefore, have to split the $1 million prize.

CAN THERE BE TWO TICKETS WITH THE SAME GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW SELECTION?
A:  
No, the Guaranteed Prize Draw Selections are unique, and therefore, two tickets can not share the same Selection. The winning Selection for the Guaranteed $1 Million Prize Draw matches only one 10-digit Selection and will only appear on one ticket issued across Canada.

WHERE DOES THE FUNDING FOR THE SUPER DRAW/ADDITIONAL GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAWS COME FROM?
A:
   These additional prizes are funded by the 7% of LOTTO 6/49 sales dedicated to the Guaranteed Prize Draw fund.
