To play Lotto 6/49 and have a chance at the jackpot, you’ll need to do the following:
To win the jackpot, you need to have all 6 numbers for the draw (the bonus number doesn’t affect your chance of winning the jackpot).
The Canadian Lotto 6/49 gives you several options for winning a prize. Here’s the breakdown:
|Numbers Matched||Estimated Prize|
|5 Numbers + Bonus||6% of the Pool Funds*|
|5 Numbers||5% of the Pool Funds*|
|4 Numbers||9.5% of the Pool Funds*|
|3 Numbers||CAD 10.00|
|2 Numbers + Bonus||CAD 5.00|
* The sum is divided equally between all of the players that qualify for the prize. If there are 5 people having 5 correct numbers and the accumulated 5% of the pool funds is 1,000,000 dollars, each winner will get 200,000 dollars.
All of the Lotto 6/49 prizes, including the jackpot, are paid in a lump sum. The good news is that the prize is tax-free. To win the jackpot, match 6 out of 49 numbers. Having the bonus number correct will increase the second tier earnings significantly.
Players have one year from the day of the draw to claim the prize that they’ve won. There are slight variations, depending on the province from which the ticket has been purchased. The lottery’s official website features all of the terms and conditions for prize claiming.
If the jackpot isn’t won during the respective draw, it will roll over to the next one. The great thing about Canada’s Lotto 6/49 is that there’s no rollover limit.
