1. WHAT ARE LOTTO 6/49 SUPER SUMMER WEDNESDAYS?

LOTTO 6/49 is offering more guaranteed prizes with SUPER SUMMER WEDNESDAYS in July and August 2018. In addition to the multi-million dollar jackpot and Guaranteed $1 Million Prize Draw, there will be 50 guaranteed draws for $2,000, every Wednesday in July and August, 2018. Every LOTTO 6/49 play issued for these Wednesday draws will automatically have a chance to win the jackpot, or any of the 51 guaranteed prize draws! 

2. HOW DO I MAKE SURE I’M ENTERED IN LOTTO 6/49 SUPER SUMMER WEDNESDAYS?

Every LOTTO 6/49 play issued for each Wednesday draw in July and August will automatically have a chance to win the jackpot, or any of the 51 guaranteed prize draws! 

3. ARE THERE ADDITIONAL GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW NUMBERS ON THE TICKET?

There is one Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection on your ticket for each $3 play giving you a chance to win any of the Guaranteed Prize Draws. 

4. IS THERE AN EXTRA COST TO PLAY LOTTO 6/49 SUPER SUMMER WEDNESDAYS?

No. SUPER SUMMER WEDNESDAYS offer more chances to win big for the same price. Players who purchase a LOTTO 6/49 play for any Wednesday draw in July and August will automatically have a chance to win the jackpot, plus any of the Guaranteed Prize Draws.

5. WHAT ARE THE ODDS OF WINNING THE ADDITIONAL GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAWS?

The odds for winning any one of the Guaranteed Prize Draws are determined 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 Guaranteed Prize Draws, which means the odds of any one Selection being drawn for any of the Guaranteed Prize Draws would be 1 in 5 million. 

6. CAN YOU GUARANTEE THAT ALL OF THE SUPER SUMMER WEDNESDAYS PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED?

No. A prize can only be awarded after a winning ticket is presented for validation and approved for payment. While the vast majority of lottery prizes are claimed by customers, there is always some possibility that a winning ticket might not be presented for payment or that the prize claim is not approved. 

 

7. 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 a prize. 

8. CAN THERE BE TWO TICKETS WITH THE SAME GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW SELECTION?

No, the Guaranteed Prize Draw Selections are unique, and therefore, two tickets can not share the same Selection. The winning Selections for the Guaranteed Prize Draws match only one 10-digit Selection and will only appear on one ticket issued across Canada. 

 

9. CAN THE SAME GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW SELECTION WIN MORE THAN ONE PRIZE?

Yes. Every Guaranteed Prize Draw selection issued is eligible to win each of the Guaranteed Prize Draws. 

10. WHERE DOES THE FUNDING FOR SUPER SUMMER WEDNESDAYS/ADDITIONAL GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW COME FROM?

These additional prizes are funded by the 7 per cent of LOTTO 6/49 sales dedicated to the Guaranteed Prize Draw fund. 

11. HOW LONG DO LOTTO 6/49 SUPER SUMMER WEDNESDAYS PRIZE WINNERS HAVE TO CLAIM THEIR PRIZE?

Like all prizes won on LOTTO 6/49, a SUPER SUMMER WEDNESDAYS prize can be claimed for up to one year from the draw date. After that time, a prize is expired and cannot be claimed. 

12. WHEN WILL THE RESULTS OF THE LOTTO 6/49 SUPER SUMMER WEDNESDAYS BE AVAILABLE?

The results of the LOTTO 6/49 SUPER SUMMER WEDNESDAYS will be made available as soon as possible after the draw. Please allow additional time for the results of all 51 Guaranteed Prize Draws and prize redemption information to be made available. 

13. WHY ARE THE MAIN DRAW WINNING NUMBERS BEING RELEASED AT A LATER TIME WITH SUPER SUMMER WEDNESDAYS?

The main draw winning numbers will be released at the same time as the Guaranteed Prize Draw winning numbers to ensure consumers do not accidentally throw away their tickets before the winning numbers for all 51 Guaranteed Prize Draws are released.
