How to play
- You may play online, using the mobile app or at a Loto-Québec retailer where you can pick your own selection or opt for selection(s) randomly generated by the Loto-Québec computer.
- Each selection is made up of 4 elements: a number representing a day of the month (from 1 to 31), a month (from January to December), a number representing a year (from 00 to 99) and an astrological sign (from Aries to Pisces). The days, months, years and astrological signs are not interdependent, so you may choose to bet on elements that don't usually go together. It is possible to wager on a date which does not exist, for example on February 31.
- Each draw is conducted as follows: Loto-Québec conducts 4 draws to determine at random 4 elements, specifically a day (from 1 to 31), a month (from January to December), a year (from 00 to 99) and an astrological sign (from Aries to Pisces). A selection is a winner if it contains 1, 2, 3 or 4 elements identical to those drawn (see Prize structure and odds of winning).
- Astro is governed by the By-law respecting forecast contests and numbers games, published in the Gazette officielle du Québec, which includes limitations of liability.
- You may purchase selection(s) valid for more than one draw.
- Extra is available with this game.
- The Replay option is also available with this game.
