How to Play

The total wager must add up to at least $2 per ticket. Split bets are not allowed - for example, you can’t bet $1 on one line of numbers and also 50¢ on two other lines.
Simply choose six numbers from 1 to 40, or for a faster play, let Easy Pick randomly choose some or all of your numbers.
Other options include a convenient Multi-Draw ticket so you can enter up to 26 draws in a row, or to enter just one draw on a specific date, mark the Future draw. If you want to play your lucky numbers again, ask for a Repeat to get the same numbers on your next ticket.

A seventh number, the Bonus Ball, is also drawn from the remaining 34 numbers. You don't need to pick the number - it's automatically chosen by the Lottery. If one of your six numbers matches the Bonus Ball, it increases your prize if matched with two, three, four or five main balls.
