Canada Lotto 6/49 Introduction

Lotto 6/49 is a Canadian national lottery, one of three games made available by the state lottery provider. It was first drawn in June, 1982, and at the time it became the first Canadian game that allowed players to choose their own numbers.


It seems preposterous to suggest anything otherwise in this day and age, but prior to the launch of the Lotto 6/49 Canadian lotteries sold pre-printed tickets. In essence, they were more like modern day raffles, and while they were popular, it soon became evident that players prefered to choose their own numbers and the Lotto 6/49 helped to phase-out these pre-printed games.


How to Play Canada Lotto 6/49

As the name suggests, Lotto 6/49 tickets consist of 6 numbers chosen from a pool of 49. It is format that has been used on countless other national lotteries and one that remains on lotteries such as the 6Aus49, also known as the German Lotto.


As with these other games, a bonus number is drawn on the Lotto 6/49 but this is not selected by the players and is instead used to create two additional prize tiers. The jackpot is paid to players who match all 6 of the main numbers while the second highest prize is paid to those who match 5 and the bonus ball.


The smallest prize on the Lotto 6/49 is paid to players who match 2 out of 6 main numbers.


Jackpots and Records

The largest ever Lotto 6/49 jackpot was $64 million and was claimed by a single ticket holder in October 2017. There have been a few other jackpots of $50 million or more, including the second highest jackpot of $63.4 million, which was claimed in 2013 and was the largest Lotto 6/49 jackpot at the time.
