LOTTO 649

The Lotto 649 is played right across Canada and has to be the longest standing and most played out of all the Canadian Lotteries offered by the Lotteries Yukon and Western Canada Lottery Corporation.

The county-wide Canadian Lottery – Lotto 649 – is well known for having produced the largest Canadian Lottery jackpot ever and – often – as many as two thirds of all Canadians have bought lottery tickets for the game.

Lotto 649 from Canada’s ILC – the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation – is not only played in Canada these days but also by many people overseas – with authorised online lottery ticket sales companies.

This popular 649 Lotto game was introduced in Canada back in 1982 with the very first Lotto 649 tickets being sold across the whole country on June 4th 1982. The first jackpot available was half a million Canadian dollars.

The very first Lotto 649 draw took place on June 12th 1982 and it was the first Canadian Lottery game to allow players to select their own numbers. Previous Canadian Lotto games used pre-printed serial numbers on tickets but the introduction of the 649 Lottery made these older types of lottery tickets a thing of the past.

LOTTO 649 – Overview

The Lotto 649 is a traditional draw-style, pick six lotto game of the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation. It is the ILC flagship game and is a Canada-wide lottery that gives you the chance to win huge jackpots for just 2 dollars.

The game uses a matrix of 6/49 and the ILC make the draw twice per week on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 6.30pm PT – 7.30pm MT – 8.30pm CT.

The jackpot normally starts at a figure of CAN$ 3.5 Million and if this jackpot figure is not won, the sum will be added onto the next 649 Lotto draw by way of a jackpot rollover. You can check the latest Lotto 649 rollover figure here.

The jackpot will then increase in size draw after draw until the top prize is finally won meaning that the Lotto 649 can quite frequently reach some truly massive jackpot figures.

Draws for the Lotto 649 take place by the ILC at the CTV Studio in Scarborough, Ontario.
