BCLC is alerting players about an online lottery scam


Fraudsters posing as the LOTTO MAX and Lotto 6/49 brands continue to attempt to engage with lottery players online.  

If you receive a Facebook message or see a post offering instant prize money from LOTTO MAX or Lotto 6/49, you are being targeted by a scammer. The LOTTO MAX and Lotto 6/49 brands are not affiliated in any way with these unauthorized agencies.

Customers should not reveal any personal information or make any type of monetary payment, and report the incident to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) by phone at 1-888-495-8501.

Anyone with questions can contact our Customer Support Centre at 1-877-706-6789.
