Canada has several online lotteries, but three national ones stand out. These are Lotto 6/49, Lotto Max and the Daily Grand. These three have impressive jackpots and good odds. This article discusses in detail these three best and most popular lottos in Canada.
Lotto 6/49 is among the national lotteries in Canada, and it was launched in 1982. It was the first lottery in Canada to allow players to make their number choices. The Interprovincial Lottery Corporation draws its winning numbers, and the Smartplay Halogen II ball machine reveals them. This happens every Wednesday and Saturday. Lotto 6/49 allows you to draw six numbers from a pool of 49. You win the jackpot if you match all the six numbers. The Lotto 6/49 jackpot is at least five million Canadian dollars.
Lotto Max was founded in 2009 and is run and managed by the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation. It holds draws every Tuesday and Friday. Lotto Max is played by choosing seven numbers from a pool of 50, and a jackpot is won by matching all the seven numbers. The maximum amount for the main jackpot is 70 million Canadian dollars.
Daily Grand is another national lottery managed by the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation. Daily Grand sales started in 2016. You play by choosing five numbers from a pool ranging from one to 49, and one grand number from a pool of numbers ranging from one to seven. Daily Grand has a top prize of a 1000 Canadian dollars a day annuity or a seven million Canadian dollars lump sum option. It holds draws twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.
These three national lotteries are the most popular and best in terms of the size of the jackpot and the odds. You stand a higher chance of winning by playing one of them, rather than any other online lotteries in Canada.
