Regular Selection and Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection

For Lotto 6/49, 1 play is comprised of 1 "Regular Selection" of 6 numbers from 1 to 49, and 1 "Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection", representing a computer-generated 10-digit number. There are 2 draws per week, i.e. on Wednesday and Saturday, and millions of dollars to be won each draw.

Regular Selection

In the Main draw, the Regular Selection of 6 numbers could lead to winning the jackpot (6/6 category). When the jackpot is not won for a given draw, it is added to the jackpot for the next draw. Also, other prizes can be won in 6 other categories: 5/6 + Bonus, 5/6, 4/6, 3/6, 2/6 + Bonus and 2/6. To win, you need to get, in a single selection, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 numbers identical to those of the winning selection. The Bonus number, represented by the "+B" symbol, is associated only with the categories 2/6 + Bonus and 5/6 + Bonus. To win in these categories, a single selection must contain respectively, in addition to the bonus number, 2 or 5 numbers identical to those of the winning selection.

The Main Draw is conducted using a single ball machine containing balls numbered from 1 to 49. Seven balls are drawn at random from the ball machine. The first 6 balls form the winning selection and the 7th ball represents the bonus number.

Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection

For each Regular Selection, you get 1 computer-generated Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection. Each Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection issued is unique and represents a number composed of 10 digits (XXXXXXXX-XX).

For the Guaranteed Prize Draw Selections, a segmented group of numbers is assigned to each of the 5 Canadian lottery corporations. Also, the Guaranteed Prize Draw Selections are issued in sequence. For example, when a lottery ticket is composed of several plays, the first 8 digits of your selections remain the same and the last 2 digits range from 01 to the number of plays purchased (67890123-01, 67890123-02, 67890123-03, etc.).

When a lottery ticket is composed of 3 Lotto 6/49 plays or more, your Guaranteed Prize Draw Selections are shown as a range. For example, if you buy 10 Lotto 6/49 plays on a same lottery ticket, you will get 10 Regular Selections and 10 Guaranteed Prize Draw Selections, which numbers will range from 67890123-01 to 67890123-10. Your Guaranteed Prize Draw Selections will be indicated as follows:

FROM: 67890123-01
TO:       67890123-10

In the Guaranteed Prize Draw, one Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection is drawn from among all those who have been issued for that draw. This winning selection allows a participant to win a Guaranteed $1,000,000 Prize. A winning selection is one whose number is identical to the one of the Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection drawn. Thus, in the above example, if the number of the Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection drawn is 67890123-07, your selection would be the only winning selection of the Guaranteed $1,000,000 Prize.

To ensure there is only one winning selection of the Guaranteed $1,000,000 Prize, every selection must be unique. That is why it is not possible to choose the numbers of these selections and all Guaranteed Prize Draw Selections are computer-generated. Each 10-digit number is therefore a unique selection and the odds of winning the Guaranteed $1,000,000 Prize are the same as for any other selection that was issued for the draw.

The Guaranteed Prize Draw is conducted using a certified random number generator.
