About Lotto 6/49

More millionaires every week!

Lotto 6/49 has now changed to make one of our most popular games even better! Lotto 6/49 now gives you more chances every week to become a millionaire.

We’ve added a second draw to the game with a guaranteed prize of $1 million. That means two new millionaires every week.

The regular jackpots are still available and now start at $5 million. And remember to say “YES” to the Extra for the chance to win $500,000.


What is the new Guaranteed Prize Draw?

  • The “Guaranteed Prize Draw” is a second draw added to the Lotto 6/49 game
  • The guaranteed prize is $1 million
  • Every Wednesday and Saturday, one winning Guaranteed Prize Draw selection is made for the guaranteed prize
  • The Guaranteed Prize Draw winning selection is randomly drawn from all selections issued for that draw

How to play the Guaranteed Prize Draw

Making your Guaranteed Prize Draw selection couldn’t be easier. It’s automatic. Let us explain.

  • Purchase your $3 Lotto 6/49 ticket by selecting your six numbers from 1 to 49 or ask for a Quick Pick for the Main Jackpot Draw. This is called your “Regular Selection”.
  • Your “Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection”, is one 10-digit number that will automatically appear in a new section called Guaranteed Prize Draw. Here’s an example of a Guaranteed Prize Draw number “12345678-01”.
  • Match your 10-digit selection exactly to the Guaranteed Prize Draw selection drawn and you’re our next millionaire!
  • When checking your tickets online, don’t forget to check your Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection to see if you are a winner!
  • If you'd like to purchase tickets for more than one draw, play Advance Buy. You can choose how many consecutive draws you want to play, up to a maximum of 26 draws in advance.

Check out our Quick Pick package line up for a more convenient way to play your favourite Lotto! games.

When you play Double Play, your regular selections are eligible for both Lotto 6/49 and BC/49. Each Double Play costs $4.

Say "Yes" to the $1 Extra for a chance to win $500,000. You can play up to 10 selections of the Extra per ticket.

Lotto 6/49 & Extra are drawn every Wednesday and Saturday. The Lotto 6/49 main jackpot prize is carried over to the next draw if it is not won.
