BC 49 Jackpot
With draws occurring every Wednesday and Saturday evening, there are two chances a week to win the $2 million top prize!
For $1 per play, you’ll receive 6 numbers from 1 to 49. You can Quick Pick or Choose Numbers when playing BC/49. You can choose to purchase a Lotto 6/49 ticket with your BC49 play and play the same numbers by selecting “Same numbers for Lotto 6/49”. If you’d like to bundle BC/49 with your other favourite lottery games, try a Quick Pick Package.

If you selected a BC/49, you can set up to 10 plays per transaction. You can also add another game to this purchase. Next, decide if you would like to choose your own numbers or Quick Pick. With Quick Pick, your numbers are randomly selected for you. Don’t forget to add the Extra for $1 per play and the chance to win $500,000!
