More time to play Lotto 6/49, BC/49, Lotto Max and Extra
July 6, 2015
Starting July 15, 2015, lottery players will have more time to purchase tickets for Lotto 6/49, BC/49, Lotto Max, and Extra thanks to a ticket purchase cut-off extension from 6pm (PT) to 7:30pm (PT).
The ticket purchase cut-off has been extended by an hour and a half across the country to provide added convenience to lottery players; the added time to purchase lottery tickets will make a big difference to B.C. players who, as of July 15, will have until 7:30pm (PT) to purchase their tickets on draw days.
Questions? We have answers:
WHEN WILL THE TICKET PURCHASE CUT-OFF BE EXTENDED?
