Players Can Now Buy Lottery Tickets with Lotto! App


BCLC logo

BCLC has enhanced its Lotto! App with a feature that allows players to purchase Lotto Max, Lotto 6/49, BC/49, Daily Grand and the Extra with their cell phone. This new version of the Lotto! App is only available to iOS users.

In order to purchase tickets through the enhanced app, new and current users must register for a PlayNow.com account and be of legal age. Players who choose not to set up a PlayNow.com account will still be able to use the app’s basic functions including ticket scanner.

In addition, another new feature is being introduced whereby players will now be able to use Digital Purchase Slips (Lotto Vouchers) available on the Lotto! App at participating Lotto Express locations similar to the current in-lane purchase slip merchandisers. This feature is not available at self-serve checkouts.

To register for a PlayNow.com account, participants must be 19+, supply their name and address and agree to a credit history search through Equifax in order to verify those details. Players who are part of the Voluntary Self-Exclusion program will not be able to sign up for a PlayNow.com account.

Did you know that players redeemed more than $687 million in prize winning lottery tickets in 2018? Anyone can win and #youcouldbenext. Watch some amazing lottery winner stories at www.playnow.com/lottery/winners/you-could-be-next.

Lotto Max customers in B.C. have until 7:30 p.m. (PDT) on Friday evenings to purchase a ticket for that night’s draw. Visit PlayNow.com or lottery retailers across B.C.

Say ‘Yes’ to the Extra for the chance to win up to $500,000. Extra is available with Daily Grand, Lotto 6/49, Lotto Max, and BC/49 at any BCLC lottery retailer or at PlayNow.com. Players can now check their lottery tickets anytime, anywhere on iOS or Android devices. Learn more about the BCLC Lotto! App here.
