September 26, 2023


It’s one of the busiest weeks of the year for lottery sales in B.C., as players buy Lotto 6/49 tickets for a chance to win the guaranteed $68-million Gold Ball Jackpot from tomorrow night’s draw. 

This is the largest lottery jackpot available in Canada where a player is guaranteed to win and here in B.C., it’s expected that ticket sales will increase by approximately 20 per cent from other major jackpots this year as players dream about what they would do with the guaranteed, life-changing prize.   

The Wednesday, September 27th jackpot marks the first time that the Lotto 6/49 Gold Ball Jackpot has reached the maximum amount of $68-million following game enhancements that enabled larger jackpot prizes. As the final draw in the sequence, someone in Canada will win the Gold Ball Jackpot. 

Players can purchase Lotto 6/49 tickets at any of the 3,400 lottery retailers in British Columbia, as well as online at PlayNow.com or on the BCLC Lotto! App

So far in 2023, B.C. lottery players redeemed more than $83 million in winnings from Lotto 6/49.
