LOTTO 6/49 is Changing!

LOTTO 6/49 Introduces Gold Ball Jackpot!

Starting in September 2022, your $3 LOTTO 6/49 purchase will be your ticket to play for two multimillion dollar prizes every Wednesday and Saturday!

Quick Facts:  

You will still receive two chances to win with every play:   

  • The Main Draw-- where six numbers are drawn from a range of 1-49-- will be called the Classic Draw. The Classic Draw jackpot will always be $5 million.   

  • The Gold Ball Draw will have a guaranteed winner with every draw. The winner will win either the guaranteed $1 million prize, or the growing jackpot that starts at $10 million. If not won, the jackpot will increase by $2 million every draw and can grow to more than $60 million!    

The odds of the Gold Ball being drawn improve with every draw, until the Gold Ball jackpot is won.   

  

The core elements of Lotto 6/49 remain the same:   

  • $3 per play

  • Draws remain on Wednesday and Saturday.   

  • Players can still either select their own six numbers from 1 to 49 using a selection slip or play with quick pick.    

  • There is no change to WESTERN 649 and EXTRA.

  • Players can still play Advance Play.   

  • Players will still receive a 10-digit number with every play and there is still a guaranteed winner with every draw.   

  • Odds to win any prize (on the Classic Draw) remain the same at 1 in 6.6 per $3 play.
