Lotto 6/49 latest results and past winning numbers

How Does Canada Lotto 6/49 Work?

The Basics

If you’re already familiar with the 6/49 format used by a lot of lotto games, then you probably already know the basics of Canada Lotto 6/49. For the uninitiated, you simply pick six numbers from a pool of 1 to 49, and there is also a bonus number that will be drawn.

Matching all six plus the bonus will net you the jackpot, while matching less will net you one of the lower prize-tiers. For example, matching 5 main numbers plus the bonus means you win the second-tier prize. Winning only 5 and no bonus means you win the third-tier prize, and so on.

If more than one first or second-tier winner is declared, the winnings are split among them equally. However, if no one wins the jackpot, it will simply roll over to the next draw until someone wins. In other words, you might just win big if you happen to match all your numbers during a draw that had multiple rollovers prior.

The Guaranteed Prize Draw

Here’s where Canada Lotto 6/49 sets itself apart from the pack. Every ticket you purchase entitles you to an automatic entry to the Guaranteed Prize Draw—a raffle that gives you the chance to win an additional CA$1 million. So, if you win the jackpot and the Guaranteed Prize Draw, you could potentially end up with a ridiculously huge windfall. A couple more things to note is that only one ticket holder will win the raffle, and no other prize tiers are available.

The Odds of Winning

Canada Lotto 6/49 has a total of seven prize tiers you win in and your odds of winning are pretty good. Compared with bigger lotteries, your chances here are much better. Check out the quick breakdown below:

Numbers Matched Odds of Winning
6 1 in 13,983,816
5 + 1 1 in 2,330,636
5 1 in 55,492
4 1 in 1,033
3 1 in 56.7
2 + 1 1 in 81.2
2 1 in 8.3
Odds of Winning Anything 1 in 6.6
Odds of Winning Guaranteed Prize Draw Varies

So What Happens if You Win?

All Canada Lotto 6/49 prizes are paid out in lump sum form, and—like I mentioned earlier—all tax-free. Of course, if you play from another country using online lottery agent services, then you’d have to deal with your local tax laws. It’s still great because you won’t have to worry about tax deductions twice.

Take note that winners have a year from the draw date to come forward and claim prizes. If no one comes forward before the deadline is up, then the unclaimed or expired prizes will be diverted to the national fund, where it will be used for upcoming draws.

Quick Canada Lotto 6/49 Facts

  • Simple Mechanics: As its name suggests, Canada Lotto 6/49 adheres to the classic 6/49 lotto format—so understanding this game should be a piece of cake for both novices and veterans alike.
  • Bi-Weekly Draws: Canada Lotto 6/49 draws are held twice a week, every Wednesday and Saturday.
  • Jackpots Roll Over: Whenever no one is declared a winner, Canada Lotto 6/49 jackpots will simply carry over to the next drawing—making it grow until someone wins.
  • The Guaranteed Prize Draw: In addition to jackpot rollovers, Canada Lotto 6/49 also features a raffle called the Guaranteed Prize Draw where CA$1 million can be won.
  • Advance Tickets: You can purchase your Canada Lotto 6/49 tickets up to 26 weeks in advance.
  • Tax-Free: All Canada Lotto 6/49 prizes are tax-free.

WHAT ARE THE ODDS OF WINNING THE $1 MILLION GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW?

The odds for the Guaranteed Prize Draw are determined for each draw by the total number of selections issued across Canada. For example, if 5 million LOTTO 6/49 plays are issued, there would be 5 million selections for the $1 million Guaranteed Prize Draw, which means the odds of any one selection being drawn would be 1 in 5 million.

3. CAN YOU GUARANTEE THAT THE $1 MILLION PRIZE WILL ALWAYS BE AWARDED? 

No. A prize can only be awarded after a winning ticket is presented for validation and approved for payment. While most lottery prizes are claimed by customers – especially when the prize is $1 million or more – there is always some possibility that a winning ticket might not be presented for payment or that the prize claim is not approved.

4. WHY DOES MY GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW SELECTION ALWAYS START WITH A 4 OR A 5?

The first digit of the Guaranteed Prize Draw selection identifies the region where the ticket was issued. All OLG selections begin with a 4 or 5, indicating that the ticket was issued in Ontario. No two Guaranteed Prize Draw selections are the same for any given draw. 

5. WHY DOES MY GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW SELECTION ALWAYS END IN “01”?

The last two digits of your Guaranteed Prize Draw selection identify the number of selections purchased on a ticket. For example, a customer who purchases a single LOTTO 6/49 play always has a Guaranteed Prize Draw number ending in “01.”  If the ticket contains multiple plays, the player receives multiple Guaranteed Prize Draw selections – the first eight digits are the same for all selections; the two-digit number following the hyphen starts at 01 and increases by one for each additional selection on the ticket.

6. WHY CAN’T I CHOOSE MY OWN GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW SELECTION? 

To ensure there is only one winning Guaranteed Prize Draw selection, every selection must be unique.  If customers were to choose their own selections, there would always be the possibility that two players could have the same winning Guaranteed Prize Draw selection, and therefore have to split the $1 million prize. 

Whenever a LOTTO 6/49 ticket is issued with three or more plays, the Guaranteed Prize Draw selections appear as a range.

For example, if you purchased a 5-number combination, you receive 44 LOTTO 6/49 regular selections and 44 Guaranteed Prize Draw Selections.

The Guaranteed Prize Draw selections on your ticket would appear as:

FROM:            12345678-01

 TO:                12345678-44

9. HOW ARE LOTTO 6/49 DRAWS CONDUCTED?

LOTTO 6/49 draws are held every Wednesday and Saturday and are conducted using Random Number Generator (RNG) technology that has been independently tested and certified by an internationally recognized and accredited tester. The Guaranteed Prize Draw is also conducted using RNG.
