Deal yourself in to POKER LOTTO
You don’t have to be a poker expert to have fun playing POKER LOTTO. Starting today, the brand-new lottery game gives players a chance to double their fun with two ways to win. POKER LOTTO is now available in the Prairies and the North.
With POKER LOTTO, players have a chance to win up to $10,000 instantly when they buy their ticket. And they have a second chance – this time to win up to $100,000 – on the nightly draw.
A POKER LOTTO ticket shows five playing cards instead of numbers. While the ticket prints, the player can watch an animation of their five cards on the customer display screen. If the five cards form a poker hand, the player wins a prize right then and there. Winning hands on POKER LOTTO range from a pair of Jacks or better, up to a Royal Flush.
But that's not all! The player still has another chance to win on the nightly POKER LOTTO draw. The ticket can win again if at least two of the five cards in a POKER LOTTO selection match the winning cards drawn. If all five cards on the ticket match the five winning cards, the ticket wins $100,000!
“POKER LOTTO takes two elements lottery players are already familiar with – a draw game and an instant win component – and combines them into a brand-new kind of game,” said WCLC spokesperson Andrea Marantz. “We’re excited to bring our very first ‘Watch & Win’ lottery to our players.”
