WEB

Visit the HIT OR MISS page on OLG.ca and choose “SEE ALL NUMBERS.” Each draw has a corresponding number that is specified on your HIT OR MISS ticket. If you have purchased a ticket with two or more draws, your draw numbers will be displayed as a range. Enter the first draw number and the total number of draws on your ticket and click “CHECK.” The winning numbers for all draws associated with your ticket will be displayed.

APP

You can scan your ticket with the OLG Lottery App which will launch your draw animations. If you have a single draw ticket, choose “SKIP TO RESULTS” to see your winning numbers. If you have a multi-draw ticket, choose “SEE WINNING TALLY” to bypass the draw animations and see the winning numbers for all completed draws on your ticket.

19. WHAT HAPPENS IF MORE THAN ONE TICKET HAS ZERO OR 12 MATCHING NUMBERS FOR A PARTICULAR DRAW?

If more than one ticket for a particular draw has won the top prize for matching either zero or 12 numbers, then each ticket will be entitled to the amount of the top prize up to a maximum of six top prizes.

If the total prize liability for the “Match 12 of 12” and “Match 0 of 12” categories in a single draw exceeds $1.5 million (more than six top prizes), the prize value of each ticket for these categories will be equally reduced until the total aggregate payout of these prizes is limited to $1.5 million. Under no circumstance would a top prize winner be paid less than five hundred and one dollars ($501).

To monitor and control potential prize payout liability, HIT OR MISS tickets winning the top prize of $250,000 cannot be validated or processed until the next day.
