Frequently Asked Questions

Buying Tickets
What time do I have to purchase my ticket by for tonight’s draw?

The purchase cut-off time is 7:30 pm PT/8:30 pm MT/9:30 pm CT the evening of the draw for LOTTO MAX, LOTTO 6/49, WESTERN 649, WESTERN MAX and PICK 3 tickets.

Can I buy lottery products over the Internet?

This website is intended as an information resource for our players; it is not a transactional site. Lottery players may also Play by Subscription to never miss a draw.

Can I play NWT & Nunavut Lotteries’ games if I live outside the Prairies or Territories?

No. The five lottery regions in Canada do not sell lottery tickets outside their respective borders. Visitors can, of course, purchase tickets when visiting another lottery region, but they must claim all prizes through that region. Most lottery tickets include the name and address of the selling region on the back of the ticket.

I bought a LOTTO 6/49 ticket from another lottery region. When I try to cash them here, the terminals won’t validate them. Why?

LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX are national lottery games and are played in the five different regions across Canada. Each region maintains its own computer system, so Ticket Terminals can only verify tickets purchased in their own region. To claim a prize on a ticket purchased elsewhere, you can either return to the region where you bought the ticket, or you can mail it to the address on the back of the ticket. Make sure your name and return address are clearly printed in the Claim Form.

Should I print my name on my tickets after I buy them?

Yes. Printing your legal name on the ticket ensures that no one else can claim any major prize if the ticket is lost or stolen. This also makes it easier when you take your tickets to be checked, as lottery retailers cannot validate tickets without the customer’s name printed on the ticket.

Claiming a Prize
I’ve won a prize – how can I claim my money?

Congratulations! For claim instructions, please call Customer Care at 1-800-665-3313 during regular business hours, Monday to Friday. More prize claim information can also be found here: Claiming a Prize

If you purchased your tickets in Manitoba through PlayNow.com, you will receive an email notification with instructions on how to claim your prize.

If I win a major prize, do I need to have my picture taken?

Yes. Under WCLC Rules and Regulations, the Corporation has no obligation to pay a prize unless the winner gives WCLC the right to publish the winner’s name, city or town of residence and recent photograph. Names and photographs of major lottery winners are publicized to protect the integrity of the games – it verifies that prizes are won and shows that winners come from every walk of life.

I purchased a ticket in the Prairies and Territories. How do I claim my prize?

You can claim your prize by mailing your ticket to:

Western Canada Lottery Corporation, Prize Payout
10th Floor, 125 Garry Street
Winnipeg, Manitoba
R3C 4J1

Be sure to clearly print your legal name, address and a daytime phone number of the back of any tickets you are sending. Depending on the amount won, you may wish to send your ticket by registered mail. A winner’s interview and photo are required for all claims of $10,000 or more.

Are lottery winnings taxable?

No. All cash and merchandise prizes paid by WCLC are tax-free within Canada. However, prizes with an annuity option may have tax implications if the annuity is selected.

Expiry Dates
I found a LOTTO 6/49 ticket in my junk drawer that is over a year old. Can I still claim a prize?

No. All lottery tickets have specific expiry dates and no prizes can be paid after that time.

LOTTO MAX, LOTTO 6/49, WESTERN 649, WESTERN MAX, EXTRA, and PICK 3 tickets expire one year from the draw date.

KENO prizes must be claimed within 180 days from the purchase date.

SPORT SELECT ticket holders have 90 days from the date the last selected game was played to claim any prizes.

SCRATCH ‘N WIN tickets have an expiry date printed on the back of the ticket.

What happens with lottery prize money that is not claimed?

Unclaimed prizes on national games are returned to players through guaranteed Jackpots and Bonus draws. Unclaimed prizes on regional games are used to enhance existing prize structures, or are returned to the member provinces and territories as revenue.

Where Does the Money Go?
Where does the money go?

Of every dollar spent on tickets, approximately 52.1 percent goes back to players in the form of prizes. Lottery retail commissions are approximately 7.0 percent of sales. Western Canada Lottery Corporation operating expenses are approximately 6.8 percent of sales with ticket printing accounting for an additional 1.0 percent. The remaining 33.1 percent is revenue returned to WCLC’s members – the governments of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba and associate members Yukon Territory, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Revenue is based on sales from each member province or territory. Each provincial and territorial government establishes its own priorities for disbursement of lottery funds.

Lottery Scams
I received an email/letter/phone call from NWT/NU Lotteries or the Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) saying that my name was selected and I won a lottery prize. I can claim the prize if I send the necessary payment for the taxes and/or service charges associated with the prize. Is this legitimate?

The notification you received was not from NWT/Nu Lotteries or WCLC and we can assure you that you have not won a prize from WCLC. We do not charge taxes or service fees on any of our games. To win a prize on our games players must first purchase a ticket while in our jurisdiction.

A number of these solicitations (scams) unfortunately occur from time to time and they often use logos or names of WCLC and other companies. Please do not – under any circumstances – provide funds or personal information to the person who contacted you. Ignore the request!

WCLC will forward information regarding various scams to local authorities and to Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, a fraud task force comprised of members of several Canadian police organizations, including the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

If you called the number on the letter and have spoken with someone or sent money, you may wish to contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. They can be contacted at 1-888-495-8501 (within Canada and the United States), at 705-495-8501 (if overseas) or through their website e-mail, [email protected] The phone lines can be busy, so please leave a message and someone will return your call.

Checking & Protecting Your Tickets
How can I check my lottery ticket?

There are several ways to check your tickets. It doesn’t take long to check your Selections, and this way you will know if you have won a prize and how much that prize is.

  • Compare your numbers to the winning numbers on our website. whenyouplay.ca
  • Sign up for the WCLC MVP Service and have LOTTO MAX, WESTERN MAX, LOTTO 6/49 and WESTERN 649 winning numbers emailed to you.
  • Use the self-serve Ticket Checkers at Lottery Retailers.
  • Check the winning numbers printed and posted at lottery retailers.

Download the Lottery Manager App from Google Play or the App store. You can now scan your tickets.

What should I do if I discover a prize worth more than $1,000 in the evening or on the weekend, when prize offices are closed? How can I protect my ticket?

If you haven’t already, print your legal name, address and daytime telephone number on the back of your winning ticket. This prevents anyone else from claiming the prize, as all players who claim a prize through a Prize Payout Office must present identification. Any changes to the information on the back of the ticket have to be investigated before the prize can be paid.

Also make sure any large winning tickets are kept in a safe place until you can collect the prize. To make prize claim arrangements, call Customer Care at 1-800-665-3313 during regular business hours, Monday through Friday.

What do I do if I have a problem checking my ticket at the store?
