AWith new changes coming to LOTTO MAX, any existing LOTTO MAX subscription(s) will be affected. With the addition of a Tuesday draw for LOTTO MAX, your options to purchase for the next 2 to 10, 26 or 52 draws remain the same, however both Tuesday and Friday draws will now be included in your subscription(s). For example, if you purchase 2 draws, you will be buying a ticket for that week’s upcoming Tuesday and Friday LOTTO MAX draw.
The maximum amount of LOTTO MAX draws you can purchase in advance has also increased to 104; meaning your future draw tickets will be purchased on a draw-by-draw basis for as long as 1 year (52 weeks x 2 draws per week). By choosing the ‘Never Miss a Draw’ option, your subscription(s) will continue to be purchased as long as there are cash funds in your account or until you decide to cancel. You can continue to add ENCORE to any subscription(s).
APlayOLG Lottery Subscriptions allow you to purchase for future draws, up to 104 LOTTO MAX and/or up to 104 LOTTO 6/49, paying as you go so you never forget to buy your ticket.
Select the number of draws you want to play or choose ‘Never Miss a Draw’ to continue playing until you decide to stop. You can select your own numbers using ‘Let Me Pick’ or have your numbers chosen randomly with ‘Auto Pick.’
AYou can purchase a LOTTO MAX Subscription for the next 2 to 10, 26, 52 or 104 draws. You can purchase a LOTTO 6/49 Subscription for the next 2 to 10, 26, 52 or 104 draws. And you can always add ENCORE to any subscription.
'Never Miss a Draw' will create a Lottery Subscription that will continue to be purchased until you decide to cancel. Your tickets will be automatically purchased, as long as you have sufficient cash funds in your PlayOLG account.
AOnce you've selected your desired number of plays from the drop-down menu, select ‘Let Me Pick.’ Next, use the number pad to set your numbers for all upcoming draws in your Lottery Subscription.
If you’d like to have your numbers randomly chosen, select ‘Auto-Pick’. You can click ‘Auto-Pick’ as many times as you like, changing the random selection each time. We’ll use the numbers generated from your first ticket for all upcoming draws in your Lottery Subscription.
AFor a new subscription, the first ticket is purchased immediately, as long as there are cash funds in your account.
For existing subscriptions, there will be an attempt to buy tickets the day after each draw around 8 a.m. (Thursday and Sunday for LOTTO 6/49 and Wednesday and Saturday for LOTTO MAX). Attempts will follow every day around 8 a.m. until there is a successful purchase. Be sure to remember, your subscription will automatically cancel if four consecutive draws are missed due to insufficient funds.
ANo, a Free Play does not replace your subscription purchase. Any Free Play is considered an additional play that is above and beyond any plays purchased for your Subscription. If you don’t have sufficient funds in your account to fulfil your subscription, a Free Play will not take the place of your subscription play.
AIf there aren’t enough cash funds in your account to purchase a ticket for the next draw, the transaction will not be completed. You’ll be prompted to deposit cash funds into your account and PlayOLG.ca can re-attempt the purchase every day around 8 a.m. up to the draw date. A lottery subscription will be automatically cancelled if four consecutive draws are missed due to insufficient funds.
APlayOLG.ca is designed for individual lottery play. However, if you are claiming a prize on behalf of a group, then the prize claim must proceed through a manual paper process via the OLG Prize Centre. If you have played on behalf of a group and don’t divulge your involvement in such group then your prize claim will likely be delayed or perhaps even disqualified.
