Players Can Now Buy Lottery Tickets with Lotto! App


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 account and be of legal age. Players who choose not to set up a 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 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 account.
