Play Instructions


  1. On a Selection Slip*, mark your number selections from 1 to 45 for the Combination Play you want - 5, 7, 8 or 9 numbers. These numbers, plus a second set of six computer-generated numbers, will automatically be arranged into all possible set of six numbers.
  2. You will receive a single ticket from the retailer that will only show the numbers you have chosen. All possible number combinations, however, will be recorded in the central computer.
  3. Match the numbers drawn to win. Six numbers and one Bonus number are drawn. See prize chart below.


* The LOTTARIO Combination Play Selection Slip is different from the regular LOTTARIO Selection Slip.


Five-Number Combination

Choose five numbers out of 45. Each of the remaining 40 numbers is added (one at a time) as your sixth number, giving you a total of 40 different sets of six-number selections. For example, if you choose 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 as your five-number selection, the 40 different combinations would be:

  1. 1-2-3-4-5-6
  2. 1-2-3-4-5-7
  3. 1-2-3-4-5-8
  4. 1-2-3-4-5-9
  5. 1-2-3-4-5-10
  6. 1-2-3-4-5-11

...and so on until all possible 40 combinations are created from the original five numbers selected.


Seven-Number Combination

Choose seven numbers out of 45 and you are playing seven different selections, since these seven numbers can be arranged into seven different sets of six-number selections. For example, if you choose 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 as your seven-number selection, the seven different combinations would be:

  1. 1-2-3-4-5-6
  2. 1-2-3-4-5-7
  3. 1-2-3-4-6-7
  4. 1-2-3-5-6-7
  5. 1-2-4-5-6-7
  6. 1-3-4-5-6-7
  7. 2-3-4-5-6-7

Eight-Number Combination

Choose eight numbers out of 45 and get 28 different selections, since these eight numbers can be arranged into 28 different sets of six-number selections. For example, if you choose 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 as your eight-number combination, the 28 possible combinations would be:

  1. 1-2-3-4-5-6
  2. 1-2-3-4-5-7
  3. 1-2-3-4-5-8

...and so on until all possible 28 combinations are created from the original eight numbers selected.


Nine-Number Combination

Choose nine numbers out of 45 and get 84 different selections, since these nine numbers can be arranged into 84 different sets of six-number selections. For example, if you choose 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 as your nine-number selection, the 84 different combinations would be:

  1. 1-2-3-4-5-6
  2. 1-2-3-4-5-7
  3. 1-2-3-4-5-8
  4. 1-2-3-4-5-9

...and so on until all possible 84 combinations are created from the original nine numbers selected.

For each Combination Play, the same method of combining numbers is repeated for the second set of computer-generated numbers.

The prize pool for LOTTARIO Combination Play is based on a pari-mutuel share. A pari-mutuel share is a calculation where the total monies allocated to a prize category are divided by the total number of winners in that category. Sometimes, customers select certain number combinations more often than other number combinations, and this may result in a reduced prize share. Some of the more popular combinations are based on sequence of numbers, vertical, horizontal or diagonal lines on selection slips, multiples of numbers, variations of historic dates or birth dates, etc. These combinations vary from draw to draw and change depending on customer play patterns

LOTTARIO prizes must be claimed within 12 months of the draw date.
