More time to play Lotto 6/49, BC/49, Lotto Max and Extra

01/06/2015

Lottery players have more time to purchase tickets for Lotto 6/49, BC/49, Lotto Max, and Extra thanks to a ticket purchase cut-off extension from 6pm (PT) to 7:30pm (PT).

The ticket purchase cut-off has been extended by an hour and a half across the country to provide added convenience to lottery players; the added time to purchase lottery tickets will make a big difference to B.C. players who, as of July 15, 2015 have until 7:30pm (PT) to purchase their tickets on draw days.

Questions? We have answers:

WHEN WILL THE TICKET PURCHASE CUT-OFF BE EXTENDED?
As of Wednesday July 15, 2015 Lotto 6/49, BC/49, LOTTO MAX, and Extra ticket purchase cut-off will be extended by an hour and a half on draw days.
The first game to be impacted by this is Lotto 6/49, BC/49 and Extra on Wednesday July 15, 2015. LOTTO MAX and LOTTO MAX Extra’s draw will be impacted as of Friday July 17, 2015.

HOW WILL THIS CHANGE THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF WINNING NUMBERS?
Because the ticket purchase cut-off has been extended an hour and a half across the country, the announcement of the winning numbers will also be pushed later. This will affect when the winning numbers will be posted on bclc.com.

ARE TICKET PURCHASE CUT-OFF TIME CHANGES EXCLUSIVE TO BC?
No, the ticket purchase cut-offs have been extended by an hour and a half across the country.

Lotto 6/49, BC/49, Lotto Max, and Extra can be played at your favourite lottery retailers or online at lotto.bclc.com. Winning numbers are available at bclc.com
