For Prizes from $1 - $2000
- All Lottery retailers must pay prizes up to $200 and may have the ability to pay prizes up to $2,000. However, please note that most retailers do not keep large sums of cash on hand for security reasons. Calling ahead to retail location to see if they have the ability to pay your prize before travelling to that retail location may help avoid disappointment.
- Mail-in your ticket to BCLC Player Services by following the Mail-in process information below.
- Lotto Express retailers are unable to pay prizes of any value.
All tickets are valid for one year after the date of the draw. The expiry date for Scratch & Win is printed on the back of the ticket. Players are reminded to sign their tickets for their protection.
