Playing the Canadian Lottery

Jun 7, 2008
The Canadian Lottery offers 2 national lotteries and 5 provincial lotteries. The two national games, Lotto 6/49 and Super 7, are available to all of Canada. These games provide larger jackpots than the Provincial games because they are played by more people. As a result, the jackpots can rise faster and higher than other games. The 5 provincial lotteries providing lots of exciting games for their respective citizens are: Atlantic Canada, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, and Western Canada.

Playing Lotto 6/49

One of the most popular and lucrative Canada Lottery games is Lotto 6/49. In 2005 it paid out a record jackpot of $54.3 Million!
