Lightning Lotto Rules in Canada

Lightning Lotto is a game that was established and produced by the Ontario Lottery Corporation and Gambling, a company that oversees gambling all over the province. As this is a relatively new game, the features are rather up-to-date:

  • You can buy tickets and take part in this game only if you are 18 or older.
  • The game is based on a 5/49 matrix. Besides, a Bonus number is drawn automatically to increase the chances of winning a second-tier prize.
  • The number selection is made through Quick Pick only!
  • The jackpot here is growing, and the guaranteed amount is $125,000. If none of the winners hit it, the sum is added to the prize for the following draw.
  • Lightning Lotto is played seven days a week!
  • You can only participate in this game if you are in the territory of Canada
  • Though some OLG games are available online, Lightning Lotto is not. If you prefer online gambling, there are more opportunities on trusted lottery sites in Canada.

Playing Lightning Lotto is rather unusual, as the order is the following:

  1. Find the OLG retailers nearby and stop by the most convenient location.
  2. Pay for your ticket considering the number of panels you choose.
  3. Wait until the system picks up your numbers automatically. Three sets of digits will be generated for you.
  4. Keep your printed ticket as close as possible, and luck is yet to find you!

The results of the draw can be checked on the Ontario Lottery Corporation and Gambling website and in the official mobile app. We are also happy to inform you about the winning numbers on our specially designed Lightning Lotto page.

Canada Lightning Lotto Payout and Taxes

OLG provides a one-year period for collecting prizes that were hit at the lotto games. We don’t think you want to wait for so long. Besides, the guide on how to claim lottery winnings is quite simple.

AmountHow to Claim My Lightning Lotto Prize in Canada
$1 – $1,000

The winnings of this amount can be claimed at the OLG retailers in all the Ontario locations. The sum can be paid out in cash or transferred to your debit or credit card.

Please note that some retailers can be limited in their lottery prize payouts because they must redeem only up to $50. In this case, just try your luck at any other retailer.

Besides, your winning ticket needs validation through the OLG terminal, and that’s how it’s made:

  1. Your ticket is scanned via the terminal.
  2. If there are lucky numbers, the terminal plays a winning sound.
  3. After that, your Customer Receipt is printed.
  4. You provide the Receipt to the retailer.
  5. The money is yours!
$1,000 and more

For bigger prizes, just submit an online claim. Visit the claim page and follow the instructions there. After your claim is processed, you will be invited to the OLG office for an interview, or you’ll receive your check by mail.

Besides, if you have an OLG.ca account, you can get your prize right there. In this case, you must complete an online Lottery Prize Claim Declaration (LPCD) form to initiate the process. PLG needs 3-5 days to process your claim, and your winnings will be deposited after that.

Prizes of any amount can also be claimed by mail. If the option is preferred, collect your documents, including your winning ticket signed on the back, the completed LPCD, and a copy of your valid picture identification, and mail them all to

OLG Prize Centre

P.O. Box 130

31 Adelaide Street East

Toronto, ON

M5C 2J1

Please note that claims provided by mail need 6–8 weeks to be processed. So, it would be better to submit an online claim or turn to the OLG retailers if your prize is not big.

Now, some good news for you: the lottery prizes are not taxed in Canada! However, all winnings of $1,000 and over are subject to review on behalf of the Family Responsibility Office. It means that any childcare support will be withheld from your amount.

Things to Know About Lightning Lotto in Canada
