Lotto 6/49 is a Canadian lottery in which players choose 6 numbers from the range 1 to 49. A bonus number and an additional bonus number are also drawn during the draw. To win, you must have a certain number of matching numbers. The more numbers you guess correctly, the bigger the prize. Bonus amounts are linked to certain prize categories. If you get all 6 main numbers right, you win the jackpot. A draw is held twice a week.
