The odds for the GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW are determined for each draw by the total number of selections sold across Canada for the main draw. For example, if five million selections are sold, there would be five million entries for the GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW, which means the odds of any one entry being drawn would be 1 in 5 million.

The prize pool for LOTTO 6/49 is based on a parimutuel share. A parimutuel 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 greater number of winning tickets and a lower 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.

GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW
  • Every draw night, we're giving away $1 million to one of our ticket holders with the GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW.
  • You'll get one GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW selection per $3 play.
  • The GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW selection will be an 8-digit number, followed by a 2-digit trailer (e.g. 12345678-12). The 8-digit number will be unique for each ticket and the trailer will always start at 01 for each ticket and will increase for each additional selection on the ticket. For example, a ticket with 3 plays will have 3 GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW numbers with the same first 8 digits and the last 2 digits ranging from 01 to 03.
  • Example: 13524678-01 13524678-02 13524678-03
  • You must exactly match the ten-digit GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW number to win.
