The Canada Lotto comprises of two main draws. These are Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max Seven. The results are determined by randomly generating a series of numbers. If the players ticket perfectly matches these digits then they will win a jackpot. This can be in the millions of dollars range.
It is therefore important that players check results before the deadline to claim their winnings passes. Reliable and audited software is used to generate random numbers, ensuring that games are fair. There are Canada Lotto draws each Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
The general public typically has until two hours before the draw time to purchase a ticket. Once the results are in they can be checked by using the official Western Canada Lottery Corporation website. Occasionally no one will come forward to claim the top prize. When this happens there may be a rollover, causing the total jackpot to increase.
