BC/49 Prizes and Odds

Classical lotteries are still adored around the globe, as they are simple to play and impressive to win. The majority of countries offer lotto games, and there may be different versions of them within one country. This is quite the case in British Columbia, a Canadian province that offers BC/49, a traditional lottery game with some unique features, rather motivating prizes, and overall winning odds of 1 in 32.3.

MatchPrize Fund DistributionOdds %

* The jackpot will be shared equally among all winners if there is more than one, as it is a pari-mutuel prize.

**The second-tier prize is under the liability limit, which equals $450,000. If the number of winners in this category is more than six, this amount is paid out in equal shares.

If you check the table with prizes and odds of winning and decide to try your hand with this game, we’ll tell you how to win the lottery. Stay with us to access valuable insights and powerful tools that can help you choose lotto numbers. You can make informed decisions and increase your chances of success.

BC/49 Extra Prizes

There are no multipliers or add-ons for BC/49 except Extra, a well-known feature that is available for many lotteries across Canada. Still, it has some peculiar features in British Columbia.

When opting for it with BC/49, a 4-digit number is generated and added to your game automatically, and if any digit is matched, you get a prize. The order of digits doesn’t matter here at all, and the prizes are smaller than in Ontario, for example. However, all the prizes are not pari-mutuel, so you put the whole amount into your pocket in case you win. Take the good luck charms to feel more confident, and use this chance.

CategoryPrize
4 Digits$500,000
3 Digits$1,000
2 Digits$10
1 Digit$1

BC/49 Drawing Schedule

BC/49 is held twice a week on weekdays and weekends. As it is affiliated with Lotto 6/49, a national lottery in Canada, the same time for the draws is set for both of them. So, you can play both games simultaneously.

The Biggest BC/49 Winners and Jackpots

As the BC/49 prizes are fixed, there are no record wins as many games with rolling jackpots (on reputable online lottery websites, for example) provide. However, big winners happen rather often there, though the second-tier winners are usually ahead. To make it clear, just see the BC/49 top-prize winners of 2023 in the table below.

BC/49 Rules in Canada

BC/49 is an in-house lottery product offered by British Columbia Lottery Corporation, a crown corporation that runs gambling across the province. The first BC/49 draw took place in 1992, and there have been no amendments or key changes since then. The game is based on very distinct principles:

  • Please note that the minimum legal gambling age is a bit different in British Columbia than in the USA or Europe. All the players must be at least 19 years old to join.
  • The matrix offered for BC/49 players is traditional. You are to pick six numbers out of the 49-ball grid, and a bonus ball to form two more prize categories is added. So, you may use the six luckiest lottery numbers or find digits with the lottery number generator.
  • All the prizes are fixed, and the jackpot never rolls over.
  • BC/49 can be played together with the Lotto 6/49 national game. All you need to do is mark your intention of entering both games with the same numbers.
  • This is a game with Wednesday and Saturday draws.
  • You can join BC/49 players on British Columbia territory, as no bets are accepted from the outside.
  • Online entries are offered on PlayNow, the official BCLC site for gamblers.

Naturally, you can proceed with your paper tickets when playing BC/49 in British Columbia. Drop in any official retail location (there are at least a couple of them around, for sure) and just do the following:

  1. Study the bet slip you are given carefully.
  2. Choose six numbers ranging between 1 and 49. It can be your luckiest numbers or a random selection via Quick Pick; it all depends on your lottery strategy, after all.
  3. Decide if you want to include a Lotto 6/49 draw in your game and mark your choice.
  4. Opt for the Extra feature to have a chance to become half a million dollars richer.
  5. Define the number of consecutive draws you want to play.
  6. Give the bet slip back to the retailer and pay for your entry.
  7. Get your printed ticket in return, and keep your fingers crossed!

Playing the lottery online is undoubtedly more convenient, and it is a piece of cake in British Columbia. Here are the instructions for you:

  1. Join the PlayNow area by signing up and creating your account on the official website.
  2. Choose BC/49 from the drop-down list.
  3. Click on BuyTickets on the right.
  4. Pick numbers on your own or through Quick Pick.
  5. Mark if you want a Lotto 6/49 entry with the same numbers.
  6. Add Extra if you like.
  7. Specify the number of consecutive draws in the Multi-Draw area.
  8. Define if you want to be emailed in case of a win.
  9. Click on buy and complete your bet.
