Participants buy a lotto ticket and select numbers from a range of numbers. These numbers are then randomly selected and if your sequence matches the drawn numbers, you win.
Here's what you need to know about the ticket for the games you choose to play.
A. The Game: This is the spot on the ticket that tells you which of the draw-based lottery games it’s for. Learn more about each game here.
B. The Draw: When’s the draw? This will show the date.
C. The Price: How much is the ticket? This will show the price.
D. The Line: This section is your “line” of numbers. Pick them yourself or let the lottery terminal generate random numbers for you.
However you pick your numbers, they all have an equal chance of winning.
E. Encore. This section of the ticket shows 2 things:
F. Ticket number
G. Signature line: In order to claim a prize, you must sign your ticket
H. Barcode: To see if you won, scan the barcode on your ticket using the ticket checker at a participating retailer; ask the retailer to scan the barcode at a lottery terminal; or use the OLG App.
With all lotteries, the matching numbers must be on the same line in order to win, not across multiple lines.
