Quebec 49 Lotto
Quebec 49 is a pick six (6) draw game administered by Loto-Québec for people in the province. The game has been in continuous play since the first draw on October 1, 1997. Quebec 49 should not be confused with the similarly titled Lotto 6/49. Tickets cost one-dollar ($1) per play with optional bets allowed. The minimum and maximum jackpot is two-million dollars ($2,000,000) and is won by matching all six of your numbers with the six main numbers. Five additional prize categories are also available, but only the highest paying prize combination on any single play will be paid.
The legal age to play lottery games in Quebec is 18. Winning tickets can only be redeemed by players of legal age. Canadian lottery winners do not have to report winnings or pay taxes on them. In order to buy lottery tickets directly from Loto-Québec online, you will need an Espacejeux account. Tickets are also available at more than 8,500 retailers around the province. A similarly fixed jackpot "49" game is available in many other provinces, some with $1 million jackpots and others, like Quebec, with a $2 million top prize.
How Can I Play the Quebec 49 Lotto?

How Do I Win Quebec 49?
There are forty-nine (49) numbers to choose from. Players select six (6) numbers. When the draw is performed lottery officials will draw a seventh, bonus number, for a total of seven (7) numbers drawn. The bonus number can help complete combinations to win 2nd and 6th place prizes. There are six prize categories and the overall odds of winning any prize is about one in thirty-two (1:32.3).
The jackpot prize is divisible. This means that when more than one ticket holder has the six winning numbers, the prize will be shared equally among all winners. All prizes are fixed amounts with the exception of the second place prize in very rare circumstance. When six (6) or fewer players match five out of six (5/6) main numbers, and the bonus (7th ball) matches the sixth number, all winners receive $75,000. If more than six tickets win, the total aggregate capped prize of $450,000 is divided among the seven or more winners equally.
