What ever happened to the tv draws like lottario l strongly believe the lottries are fixed computer generated no less which makes it even harder to believe id be willing to bet if you asked the people of canda if they thought the lottery was fixed olg wouldnt like the results.You cant trust the government an to trust something at arms length of the government is a joke ,put the lotterys back on the tv maybe live on the community channels as it stands l wouldnt even rule out a government slush fund with the computor running the lottery how hard would it be
Good morning Peter, thank you for your inquiry.
Other players have asked why we don’t show our draws live. The primary reason is our regional draws are done by Random Number Generator and therefore there is not much for the player to see. Secondly, it was difficult for television networks to insert a segment of the required length at a precise time every draw night as well as the unpredictability of the time slot. I want to assure you that our lottery draws are conducted with the highest standards to uphold the publics trust.
Strict guidelines are followed and external auditors are present for the draw. All of our draws are taped and we are more than happy to share a specific draw if requested. The Lotto Max, Lotto draws are all performed with a ball machine at the ILC lottery head office in Ontario. Every draw is videotaped, and you can find them on our Youtube channel by searching for Atlantic Lottery on www.youtube.com.
Please let us know if you have any further inquiries. Thank you, - Brianna
Does the draw stream live on the YouTube channel?
Hi Francine, Our Youtube channel does offer the draws for our players to watch online, however they are not available to stream live.
They are uploaded once the draw is complete. If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know. Regards, -Mel
in order to ensure more transparency in the minds of the public why dont you live stream them on your facebook page/youtube channel or the draws shall be conducted in an auditorium or big space where people who intend to watch it shall come and see the draw in real.
Hi Shahid, the draws that are videotaped and uploaded to our Youtube channel are draws that are performed at the ILC head office in Ontario, where the draws occur for Lotto Max, MAXMILLIONS, Lotto and Daily Grand.
This would fall under their discretion if they would like to stream the draws live on Facebook or Youtube. Regards, Mel
I have notice that most of the Big prizes of lotto max and 6/49 won by people from Quebec. (Most of the time) Why ? They are more luckiest people than resident of other province? Hmmmm
Hi Joel, thank you for sharing your concerns with us.
The location where you buy your ticket does not affect your odds of winning a prize. Larger provinces and cities may have more winners than smaller locations however this is because there are more people buying tickets in heavily populated areas, and consequently, more people winning prizes. Atlantic Canadians are winning the lottery every day, whether it is a large prize or small.
It is never known where winning tickets will be sold, chance takes care of that and each player, regardless of where they live, has the same odds of winning. The odds of winning the top prize are mathematically determined; therefore, they do not change regardless of the jackpot amount, or where the tickets are purchased.
I have been observing that big jackpots are always goes to Quebec not only once but everytime a big jackpot is accumulated after two three draws without winners. Why are the draws not televised? Is it time to do an audit by an independent auditing company?
I for one dont believe your expanations.
Ontario and Quebec end up with more than the lion share of winning tickets. I think maybe there should be another lottery for the rest of Western and Eastern Canadabecause if half the ticket sales are coming from the rest of Canadathey certainly arent even getting on the 25% side of winning anything. Every drawing is either Ontario or Quebec. The fastest way to change thisthe rest of Canada simply stop buying Lotto Max and 64/9.
We should only buy the lotteries that are in our respective Provinces. It cant hurtwe arent getting close to a winning ticket or a portion there of living outside of Ontario or Quebec anyway. For me this was the last Lotto Max I contribute to a Quebec or Ontario winner.
Hello Jose and Colleen.
We do appreciate getting all your feedback and concerns. I will pass along the message. Kind regards, Mel
I for one am sick of seeing the largest Lotto Max pots The big jackpot live tonight to Quebec. This is an OLG game. Ontario Lottery and Gaming should be just as the name suggests.
The winner has to publish his photo and name publicly but the draws wont happen in public Hmmm.
All big jackpots going to Quebec or Ontario doesnt seem random
I really do think lotto max and lotto are rigged. A live stream of the draw on a youtube channel will clear alot of doubts because the explanation about why Ontario and Quebec always win does not make sense because if every one across the nation had an equal chance of winning with the length of time these 2 lotteries have been in place, there wouldve been wins randomly across the nation and not just between 2 provinces.
I totally agree with Colleen above I am done contributing to the Quebec and Ontario winnings, if I ever have to play again I will stick to the western canada lotteries
Hi John, Thank you for your comments. Lotto Max isnt just a game for OLG but is offered across the country in all five lottery jurisdictions.
All players across Canada have the same odds of winning but the chances of a winner being in Ontario or Quebec is higher since a much larger number of tickets are sold there compared to Atlantic Canada or British Columbia. Thanks again for your feedback, Kristen Customer Care Centre
Hi Vinayak, Thank you for your feedback.
The Lotto Max draws are done by random ball drop at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming headquarters in Toronto and are overseen by Interprovincial Lottery Corporation. There are independent auditors present at each draw and the balls are weighed and tested regularly. The Lotto Max draws arent televised live due to the constraints of timing the draw with television scheduling across the country.
The video of each draw can be found on our You Tube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/AtlanticLottery/playlists. Thanks again, Kristen Customer Care Centre
Hi Marcus, Thank you for your comments. There have been Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49 jackpot winners across the country and not just in Ontario or Quebec.
Here in Atlantic Canada, there was recently a $60 million jackpot win by a group in Newfoundland. While it isnt a live stream, the draws can be viewed on our You Tube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/AtlanticLottery/playlists. Thanks again, Kristen Customer Care Centre
Thank you for your reply and explanation. So you mean everytime that the lotto prize is bigger and those who lives in small province and small population has small chance of winning the big prize.
And those living in Are online slots really random has the bigger chance of winning the prize. For me I don’t think your explanation is right it must have an equal chance of winning the prize regardless of what place or province you live in here Canada. Thank you
Hi Joel, Thank you for your reply.
For example, a total of tickets are sold and 95 of them are purchased in Ontario and 5 in Nova Scotia. Everyone has the same chances, but the likelihood that the winning ticket will be from Ontario is greater. Kind regards, Joline Customer Care Center
Why was my post removed without a response?
Good Everning Mike, Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns with us.
Larger provinces and cities may have more winners than smaller locations however, this is because there are more people buying tickets in heavily populated areas, and consequently, more people winning prizes. Atlantic Canadians and smaller cities in Canada are winning the lottery every day, whether it is a large prize or small. It is never known where winning tickets will be sold, chance takes care of that and each player, regardless of where they live, has the same odds of winning.
Our National lottery draws 6/49 and Lotto Max, including MAXMILLIONS, are conducted using a ball machine. The balls used for the draws are measured and weighed every six weeks.

If even one of the balls slightly varies The big jackpot live tonight weight or diameter, the complete set is replaced. Between draws, the balls are locked away in a sealed container.

The lottery is fixed Quebec now have almost 90 millionaires.I do believe this is such a big conspiracy among olg
Good morning Cheryl, thank you for taking the time to share your concerns with us.
There are five lottery jurisdictions in Canada. The Atlantic Lottery Corporation (ALC) services the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador. Each lottery corporation participates in three national games, Lotto 6/49, Lotto Max and Daily Grand, and each offer their own regional games.
The Interprovincial Lottery Corporation (ILC) oversees each lottery jurisdiction in Canada, as well as our national games. Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max are obvious favorites with many lottery players because of their large jackpot prizes. Increased sales and player excitement when the jackpot is high indicates to us that large jackpots are the most popular feature of these games. The prize structure for these games is designed to offer large jackpots as well as significant secondary prizes.
The subsidiary prizes, however, are designed to offer smaller prizes to a greater number of people. Atlantic Canadians are winning the lottery every day. It is never known where winning tickets will be sold, chance takes care of that. Larger provinces and cities may have more winners 100 000 pyramid slot smaller locations; this is simply because there are more people buying tickets in heavily populated areas, and consequently, more people winning prizes.
But this does not affect the odds. Each player, regardless of where they live, still has the same odds of winning. Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max are conducted using a ball machine. The balls used for the draws are measured and weighed every six weeks. If even one of the balls slightly varies in weight or diameter, the complete set is replaced.
Between draws, the balls are locked away in a sealed container. Independent auditors attend each draw, and all draws are videotaped. All these security features are aimed at ensuring that every player has an equal chance of winning. We also upload the Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max draws to our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/AtlanticLottery.
This feed is provided to us from the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation (ILC) who are located in Toronto, Ontario; ILC oversees all lottery jurisdictions within Canada. Winner’s information is available by visiting our website at https://alc.ca/content/alc/en/corporate/are-you-a-winner/winners.html.
Kind regards -Alysia
Everyone in the comment section has been telling you guys (Atlantic Lottery) to do the draws live on Youtube. With this method, you guys will not be affecting televised programs. You people have yet to reply with a sensible and valid reason as to why you will not do LIVE draws on Youtube. Stop trying to beat around the bush because it is clear you guys are scammers and robbing people of their money.the big jackpot today
Stop letting "insiders" (mainly in Quebec) always win. We have already caught onto your tactics, and we cant be fooled anymore
Hi Xiu, thank you for sharing your concerns with us.
The draws are performed at the ILC head office in Ontario. This would Slots of vegas free chip codes under their discretion if they would like to stream the draws live on Youtube. Thank you - Brianna
We all know and understand quite well, where and when the lottery draws are performed.
However, its imperative to address the main question everyone has been asking and if you people dont have an answer, tell us that you dont have an answer. WHY are the draws not streamed live? After-all, we spend the money to purchase the tickets, and we are customers. You people make the big bucks, dont we, at least, deserve transparency? We know about ILC, yet we want to know WHY there cannot be live draws.
Can you find the answer NOW? Or tell us you dont know. Thanks
There is a flaw with the random number generator system used by the ILC, and I am willing to provide accurate proof if required. I would like the admission of truth regarding the fact that there is NO such thing as a computerised system that can produce random sets of numbers.
This simply does not exist as it is virtually impossible for there to be an algorithm that can produce a set of truly randomised numbers. There will always be a trend or patters as a computer cannot be randomised. Therefore, your random number generators are a lie and a serious case of fraud and deception. Please share your thoughts. People need to know the truth.
What actual OLG games are strictly just for Ontario residents?
Where can i find this information.
Hi Mary - We would suggest visiting the OLG website at https://home.olg.ca/en-ca/home-page for more information about their games or contacting them at to find out what games are only offered in Ontario.
Thank you - Kristen Customer Care Centre
Good morning John, Thank you for your inquiries about draws and the Random Number Generator. Our draws occur as soon as all the games are closed for purchase. There are five lottery jurisdictions throughout Canada that participate in the National games, therefore the exact time that the draws are done may vary.
The draws are recorded and shared online once all processes are complete. Integrity and security are at the core of every game we offer and fundamental to what we do. Nationally recognized firms, which audit both national and regional draws, have confirmed that both the ball machine and Random Number Generator methods offer the same standards of security and integrity.
Third-party experts have tested and certified the Random Number Genrator software, which signals any modification to any component of the system that has an influence on the outcome. There are a number of other checks and balances that are the accountability of third-party experts – from onsite draw auditors to the verification of equipment and software.
Thank you, Kristen Customer Care Centre

This thread is called WHY DOES QUEBEC WIN ALL the BIG JACKPOTS. All I merely did was go to lottery results page and copy and paste the mind boggling evidence to support my claim. I wonder why all these facts were deleted from this post? This is a legitimate question that needs to be addressed.
All people from across Canada spend there hard earned money with dreams of one day striking it rich and making there lives easier. We would all hope that we have a legitimate chance of winning when we go to our local lotto retailer and purchase a ticket that we could wake up in morning a winner. It would appear that this isnt the case.
I think all reader on hear want to and deserve to know why, 80% of winnings go to a province that has only % of our population? I have no interest in a private phone Piggy pennies slot machine or email, I want as many people as possible to know the truth.
A fyi for readers of this thread, my other email has been blocked by this site :(
I dont believe for one second the lotteries cant be broadcast on live tv
What happened to the days when Don Witman (rest his soul) used to do the draws live during the late news.
I know times have changed since than.but with revenue the lotteries make.I am sure they can afford a 5 minute tv slot
So Ontario and Quebec buys over half of the sales of and lotto max,hmm, what"s over half, 51%? they shouldn"t be winning 80 to 85% of the time.
Even if it was 60 to 40 %60% Ontario and Quebec and all the rest, 40% there should be more winners elsewhere. Just about every time you check, Ontario, Quebec. Ontario etc.etc. Everyone I talk to they say ,the hell with this, Just saying
Mike firsr of all, I can’t believe you’re way smarter than you are ( conpared to super computers) I look at this site for some genuine information and when someone like you gets aggressif and plainly The big jackpot live tonight
then maybe its time you get some help?
I trully believe you’re wife/gf should take your phone away. Like what are you thinking seriously buddy, you’re from out West and you’re gonna write messagess on here way over the coast to complaim? It’s fair. IF you dont like it then dont play and stay away from our lovely Atlantic Provinces because we dont and we wont take negativity like this around our beautiful provinces. Have a great live. Oh and the same can be told about Geno!!!!
Leave us happy Atlantic Canadians alone geez!!!
Mike I do apologize. I didn’t see your earlier log when they saidvthey had blcked you. Like are you for real? You understand that’s border line arrassment and no you’re getting the wrong type of publicity if that’s what you want. Stay in your province buddy.
We all know Quebec wins the majority of the jackpots big or small.
I would understand if Ontario or West Canada won the jackpot more oftenthese are areas with higher populations than Atlantic Canada. With regards to Mike, I am in agreement with his person on the inability of a program to randomly generate numbers. My first day of programming we were told that programs are developed to follow a set of rules and therefore cannot be randomevery action or reaction is predetermined.
Even the ball dropping system is not completely random and that is why the U.K. lottery has 2 ball dropping machines and 10 sets of balls that are randomly selected at the time of the draw which is televised live to avoid questions of interference. Why can we not do that here in canada using television or streaming online?
Good morning Robin, Thank you for your comments about our draws.
You’re not alone Other players have asked why we don’t show our draws live. The primary reason is our regional draws are done by Random Number Generator and therefore there is not much for the player to see. Secondly, it was difficult for television networks to insert a segment of the required length at a precise time every draw night as well as the unpredictability of the time slot.
Our website now offers players the convenience of watching recordings for draws of their favorite online games. I want to assure you that our lottery draws are conducted with the highest standards to uphold the publics trust. There are two basic types of systems used to facilitate random number generation; Pseudo and True random.
Pseudo random, is a computer program that is used to generate a sequence of seemingly random numbers. However, while these numbers appear random, anyone understanding the computer program can generate the same sequence of numbers and could predict numbers that would be generated in the future. The lottery does not use computer programs that generate predictable numbers for draws. At Atlantic Lottery, random number generation is based on devices specifically designed to generate random numbers.
These use random natural characteristics, such as quantum phenomena, to provide unpredictable random numbers to ALC’s computers. Before use, each ALC RNG is comprehensively tested for randomness and unpredictability by an independent testing agency. Periodic re-certification is carried out during the life of the RNG. We hope this builds trust within our system and how it operates.
why is lotto max ticket in Quebec is different in color to that of Ontario ?
Good evening, thank you for your inquiry. Each lottery jurisdiction (Atlantic Lottery Corporation, Loto-Québec, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, Western Canada Lottery Corporation and British Columbia Lottery Corporation) has their own lottery ticket designs.
All ticket designs and colors will differ between each lottery jurisdiction. Kind regards -Alysia
Can you be anonymous when winning over $,
Hi Jane, thank you for your great question! Part of claiming a major prize win is presenting yourself as a the rightful owner of the ticket.
Folks are always interested in seeing who is winning and we do post pictures of anyone who has won over $10, online and/or may even use their picture! There are times when it may be possible, for instance, if you are in the witness protection plan, then we would work with that. However, % of the time, you cannot remain anonymous.
If you have any other questions, please let us know. Kind Regards, Darlene
Good morning, Thank you for reaching out to us. I do understand your position, especially in the world we live in now but no, it is not possible to be anonymous when winning over $, Having pictures taken is all standard; after all, everyone wants to know who the big winners are.
Just keep in mind that during a winner’s time in the spotlight, their privacy will be respected. Only general information like their name, occupation, hometown and the amount of their win will be released. Have a great day! – Nicole
I quote the Atlantic Lottery reply dated 06/12/, "The Lotto Max draws are done by random ball drop at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming headquarters in Toronto and are overseen by Interprovincial Lottery Corporation.
There are independent auditors present at each draw!" This therefore proves the draws are all honest. OK, lets see how honest these claims actually are? Overseen by "Interprovincial Lottery Corporation", OK.and they just happen to be owned and run by the government, and of course we all know how honest the government is, dont we? Second issue: "Independent auditors". Really? And are these auditors so independent that the governments does not pay them to do the audit?
They do it for free, just to make sure its all honest! If you want me to believe that consider the old saying "You dont bite the hand that feeds you!" What else can I saybesides, yes I was born, but it was not yesterday! As for "honesty" The government wouldnt recognize honesty, if it came up an bit them on the ass!
Funny I have been saying the same since Trudeau was voted in.
Thunder Bay rarely wins and never anything big ,makes me feel like he is making Quebec rich on the backs of the rest of Canada. Maybe we need the lottery corporations to be investigated as I do believe there is some fraud going on. The lotteries are always consistently going high and then being won in Quebec ? Or in trudeaus back yard as he does not live in Quebec.
Seems the lotteries were being won more frequently prior to trudeau being elected. I know I wont vote for him next time. I work with people and majority say the same as I do. Share the wealth and The big jackpot live tonight fair!
Do the rest of Canada know Quebec can pick all their lotto max numbers but ( sure they do dont they?) but the rest of us can only pick one set.
seem fair to anyone out there? I heard that they requested it and yup no problem. well Im requesting it. hmmmmm good luck with that
Hi Geno, Lotto Quebec is the only jurisdiction who allows players to pick all three lines.
They originally launched it like the rest of the country, but, changed it later due to customer requests. AL has a small number of Lotto Max players who pick their own numbers approx. 3%, therefore the amount this change would cost, is not a cost effective solution for us. LQ may have been able to do this, as they have a much larger customer base which enables them to perhaps add extra features we are not able to.
Let us know if you have any further questions. Kind Regards, Matt
So were we asked if we wanted to pick all our numbers for Lotto max?I dont recall maybe there would be more than 3% Matt. Like most people, I didnt realize there was an option and that the rules dont apply to everyone. why do you think Quebec players wanted to pick all three sets of numbers?
In previous posts it’s been stated that random numbers do form patterns, so if Quebec gets to pick all three lines they can use the hot numbers and cold numbers and play the stats and probabilities better than anyone else in the country.
It’s like a light bulb just went off above my head. We only get to pick one line with two picked for us, they get to pick all three so each line gets tweaked with a better chance of playing the “random” numbers. That’s not fair! Forget population they have a greater chance of winning just by default of picking 3 lines. Maybe the lottery should ask the rest of Canada if they’d like to pick 3 lines again so it’s fair!
Hi Geno, Thank you for your further feedback about Lotto Max. If you would like to provide your opinions and comments more often, please consider joining our ALC Insiders panel and become one of our players who completes surveys for us to provide feedback on all things ALC. You can do this at https://www.alcinsiders.com/Portal/default.aspx.
Thank you, Kristen Customer Care Centre
I thought our 58 million to upgrade our AL lottery system would allow ALC to add extra features with just the touch of a button. you know add new things to please the players like, be another province or provinces to have the balls to pick our 3 sets of lotto max numbers if we want like, some other province.
Cant be that difficult.
I havent played Pro-Line for a little while so Im not sure when this started but I just noticed that there are some selections such as the Over/Under and Spread that now have an even number instead of the half. For example, on todays Over/Under between the San Diego Padres vs Cincinnati Reds it is So, if the total just happens to be exactly 9 runs, neither the Over or the Under will win.
Is this correct or am I missing something? Or will a total of 9 runs win for both the Over AND Under. I would be surprised if that is the case. If I am correct on my first assumption, then why isnt there an option to pick EXACTLY 9 runs (for this example) so that there will be a winning selection somewhere in the list? Again, if I am correct, it seems like a rather pitiful way for ALC to make a slight percentage more profit.
In that same example, the Over has a payout vs a for Under. Comparatively, Kansas City vs Minnesota has an Over/Under payout of and which is no different ( total each). So in the least, the total for the even-numbered Over/Under outcomes should have a bigger payout because of that chance that the exact number is hit.
Forgot to mention in that comment that the Kansas City/Minnesota game has an Over/Under of
Hello David, Thank you for your inquiry.
In the event that the Total is neither under nor over, the tie would make that particular event a push and the odds for the selection for that event will be reverted to Kind regards, Mathieu CCC
So would there in the future be a possibility of having a form of "Totals" game where there would be odds set for certain sports where someone would guess the exact number of runs/goals/points of games?
This would be mostly applicable to the finals of the major sports (ie World Series, Superbowl, Stanley Cup)? I remember seeing something similar for hockey in last years playoffs where one could bet on the winning margin. Thanks!
Hello David, I cannot speculate about the propositions (props) that will be offered in the future as these are always subject to change.
I invite you to periodically visit https://www.alc.ca/content/proline-stadium/en/how-to-play/how-to-play-proline.html#PL-HTP-Page-4 where you will be able to see the available props at the moment. Kind regards, Mathieu CCC
Quebec can pick all their lotto max numbers but the rest of us can only pick one set!! Thats itIm out!!!
Good Morning Delaine, Most players prefer the Insta-Pik option.
Over 92% of all LOTTO MAX number selections sold in Atlantic Canada are made with Insta-Pik, and so we offer Atlantic Canadian players the option of selecting one line of numbers (7 numbers) for every 3 lines played (21 numbers). Each and every possible combination of numbers has the same odds of winning, regardless of whether or not the numbers are selected by the player or by a Insta-Pik. (The statistic is based on total Lotto Max sales - for any number of boards ().
In other words, total Lotto Max sales VIA Insta-Pik divided by total Lotto Max sales.) If you have additional inquiries, please feel free to contact us. Thanks Nicki
The option of choosing your own numbers should be that of the buyer not the lottery corporation. When you allow some to choose their numbers while others are not allowed that choice, the lottery is not being played on a level playing field.
And isnt that the point?
Hi Delaine, there are always different rules and regulations for different types of games. For example, numbers cannot be chosen for Salsa Bingo, Poker Lotto, TAG, Bucko and Keno, they are always chosen at random by the system but again, any given number combination - whether chosen randomly or by the player - have the exact same odds of winning a prize.
We do appreciate you sharing your feedback and concerns with us. Your comments will be passed along. Have a great weekend. -Melanie
I understand there are different rules and regulations for different games, but the rules should be the same within that game across the country. Rules for these games should not be different in different provinces when the game is nationally played.
The rules should be the same for everyone Best online slot machines for real money usa matter where your ticket is purchased. Thank you for passing along my comments.
Hi to Kristen at customer service, I took your advice to join alc insiders at https://www.alcinsiders.com/Portal/default.aspxJoined and never heared a word after.
Whats up with that. and what surverys?
Hi Geno, thank you for contacting us and sorry to hear that you havent received a survey since you have signed up. We will look into this and we will get back to you as soon as we find out more information. Regards, Joline
I know everyone on here seems pretty upset the fact all big prizes are won in Ontario and Quebec.
A lot have said, Canada lotto is rigged! and a handful have asked - Why not stream the draws?! . regardless of everyones opinion and requests - nothing will be done. The lotto will continue its private draws and everyone will continue to buy. Nothing will ever make sense with the answers given to us, draws are computer generated - and yet you can Big time gaming slots the recorded video after the draw on youtube. I know a couple of youtubers and its really simple to do a live stream.
(Although, heres a thought.) Even if they do a live stream draw, how do we all know that the draw is actually legit? The video could of been staged and the balls could of been all set up to come out the tube accordingly? I watched these videos. Yes you see balls circulating in the dome, but the part you cant see is within the tube where Slot online terlengkap gelora188 come out - numbers could of been easily set up earlier for numbers they chose to come out.
But anyway, we can all think conspiracy and mysterious things that happen in the lotto industry, but regardless of what we all say and think - the industry will continue its ways and they will continue the lotto. Heres a solution that makes so much sense but will never happen: "Why not keep Ontario and Quebec together as a lottery corporation? let those 2 continents battle it out with the millions of dollars.
and let Manitoba and Saskatchewan and those other smaller continents like P.E.I and Nova Scotia be one lotto corporation. Then we will all see the amount of money that Ontario and Quebec funds into the lottery, and we will see the amount of money that the smaller continents fund into the lottery. I already know for a fact that the Quebec and Ontario lottery will hit jackpots of $40, while Manitoba and Saskatchewan lottery will only be in the $10, to $20, range.
but hey atleast now everyone has a chance to win the lotto and not just Quebec, Ontario and Alberta. But you know, Im just that one grain of sand with an opinion. Remember everyone, lets not waste our breathes, none of our opinions will be granted. We can all speak our minds but nothing will happen. Thank you Lottery industry for the $10 and $20 and free tickets I win from time to time. I appreciate it.
I agree with Sieth, lets just be appreciative of our $2, $5 and free ticket wins.
At least we do win something out of the thousands of dollars we spend on lotto each year. I strongly agree that Ontario and Quebec and Alberta and British Columbia should be its own lottery corporation and have the smaller cities have their own lottery corporation. BUT, even if they do split the corporations and grant our request, we still wont see and know how the buys are being split!
What if they take $5, of the smaller cities buys and placed that on the Ontario and Alberta and Quebec and B.C. pot! I totally will agree with you that We can have opinions and suggestions and demands, but the lotto industry will still ignore us and just carry on and continue the lotto and us customers will continue to buy. For all I know, everyone on here can be all angry with the equality of winnings and the conspiracy of hiding the draws (even though its free to do a live stream) we can all just be mad and upset and think of ways why the lotto industry keeps everything contained.
But honestly, no body here stopped to think, what if this was the truth? . we all learned from school that Ontario and Quebec and B.C. and Alberta are the bigger cities in Canada, what if us smaller cities just dont have a chance? but we just still continue to buy. I seen somewhere in the conversation that winning lotto max is 1 in 29, and winning is 1 in 14, -- to me these numbers are for the bigger cities, these numbers show their chances of winning the big jackpots.
In this case, that just means that the smaller cities in Manitoba and Saskatchewan and all of the eastern cities chances of winning the lotto jackpot is 1 in. . I know this is an insane number, but lets think reality -- if you place a small sheep with a big strong hungry lion in a field - what are the chances of this sheep winning the battle? .
and thats how I see the lotto industry, things may not be rigged and they all can be telling the truth - Simpsons slot machine online things are still unfair . In conclusion to what Sieth mentioned, you may be that spec of sand with a suggestion, but lets not forget - us customers are ALL a spec of sand. We all know of course we have better chances winning in Western and all that small stuff -- but why are jackpots always stuck at 2 Million dollars?
what if people bought $3Mills worth? where does that $1Mil go? I know your going to say - you all have to pay out the ones who get 3 out of the 6 numbers and 5 and the bonus I know that -- but are there 1 million Where do online slot players get the mon4to play worth of people who win $10 ?
thats likepeople winning $10 a draw?? So to do the math - that just shows that we have a lot of people gambling in the western provinces -- so why does the bigger cities still win the jackpots 95% of the time? I thought you all just said that its the luck of the draw that everyone has equal chances, but in reality - the bigger cities have all the chances. Honestly, split the lottery corporation to Alberta, B.C, Quebec, Ontario.
and call that ABQO /Max . and separate the Manitobans and Saskatchewan and all those eastern smaller cities into another lottery corporation and call that MSE /Max . and there you have it, everyone will stop complaining. BUT NO. why should anyone listen to me. right? this is just getting hilarious and awkward. Thank you for my free tickets and $2 wins once every 4 months.
Sieth and Mark, you are both insane. No body has time to read long complaining stories but, I do agree with you guys. Splitting the big cities as one corporate and the smaller cities as another. Both lotto industries also need to equally have rising pots everytime nobody wins the jackpot, and not just stuck at 2 million dollars like western and lotto max (no body even wins the jackpots on western and lotto max?
but why is it still stuck at the same jackpot?) who knows.
I am new to Canada however it didnt took me a time to be familiar with the lotteries especially lotto 6/49, lotto max and daily grand, the reason is that I regularly play lottery. The sole thing that surprised me is that " the draws are not open to the public like many other countries.
Why? It is simple and logical question. You sell millions of tickets to people and the players buy in expectation of win, and you surprisingly drawings are CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC. You dont even have an adequate justification for not broadcasting the drawings live in the presence of the public. BELIEVE ME YOU WILL NEVER EVER HAVE A SATISFACTORY JUSTIFICATION FOR NOT BEING TRANSPARENT ABOUT THE DRAWING UNLESS,Honestly speaking, its sad!!!!
Hi Stephano, thank you for your feedback.
Lottery draws within Atlantic Canada are not televised. The primary reason is our Regional draws are done by Random Number Generator and therefore there is not much for the player to see. I want to assure you that our lottery draws are conducted with the highest standards to uphold the publics trust. Strict guidelines are followed and external auditors are present for the draw. All of our draws are taped and we are more than happy to share a specific draw if requested.
Also, players can make a formal request to come and watch a draw, provided we can fulfill all of the necessary security requirements. Our National draws, Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49, are conducted using a ball machine. The balls used for the draws are measured and weighed every six weeks. If even one of the balls slightly varies in weight or diameter, the complete set is replaced. Between draws, the balls are locked away in a sealed container. Independent auditors attend each draw, and all draws are videotaped.
All these security features are aimed at ensuring that every player has an equal chance of winning. While we are no longer able to do live TV draws, we are provided the feed from the ILC (Interprovincial Lottery Commissions), which we upload to our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/AtlanticLottery Regards, Nicki
Hi Geno, sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
Generally, there is a survey that goes out monthly to all members of the AL insiders. The goal is to ensure that activities that are sent to the Insiders are relevant to the member. For further inquiries, dont hesitate to contact us. Regards, Joline
Finally more people are speaking up, people are unhappy, I think its only a matter of time for tickets to start declineing.
Poker lotto on the first was the craze, everybody seem to be winning something. even the ticket sellers agreed. Look at the stats now, dont seem to be as many people playing now since the winnnings have been cut back or it sure seems like it. as for the big games (Lotto max etc.) if Quebec has special treatment and can pick all their 3 sets and we cant,,,something funny there. That needs to change
Geno is absolutely correct.
something is funny the fact we cannot pick all 3 sets in certain cities. I am also happy that people are starting to come forward, it is time to do something about this "Only Quebec, Ontario, Alberta wins big jackpot scam." Even if we just got an answer that balls are weighed and there are securities present - Quebec and Ontario and Alberta will still win the big jackpots.
Heres a prediction of this Fridays draw: "Lottomax jackpot of $60, was won by 1 lucky ticket sold in Ontario. 6 Kansas star casino slot payout the bonus was won by 1 ticket in Quebec.
the big jackpot - new videos
6 matches in Extra was won in Alberta. The Free Tickets and $5 was won in Saskatchewan and Manitoba." This just makes me sick to my stomach.
Just out of curiosity, who are the people responding to our questions and concerns? (Atlantic Lottery). People who respond to us from the Atlantic Lotterydo you people forward our questions and concerns to the higher directors and coordinators responsible for draws?
Or, does our questions just get answered and goes no where past this point? Just curious please The big jackpot live tonight us know. Thanks!
Exactly, who are the Atlantic Lottery responding to us? This is a good website, I will forward this site on facebook and youtube.
Everyone in Canada need to see this. (Please dont take this site down) Everyone will take screenshots of these conversations and expand it for the world to see. Which would create BIG BIG con·tro·ver·sy and to news reporters of Canada.
Why was Sieth and Marks question ignored? About the splitting the lottery corporation between big cities versus smaller cities.
it is a very great idea where everyone wins every week. With all the money that the lottery industry collects, Cash slots app sure it would cost so little to re-create and change the industry. Just like how they did with lotto and how we all were tricked and brainwashed that the NEW would be better than the old We were all able to buy $1 per ticket and dont even win anything but $10 at the most, then they came up with $3 per ticket!!?
honestly? but then we get these little guaranteed prizes that again is impossible to win - except for Ontario and Quebec. And then we had Super7. We were told that Lottomax was going to be greater than Super7. When I did some research with the differences between Lottomax and Super7 - we just ended up paying more for 3 rows of numbers. Which is a rip off because that was already impossible to achieve. Not only that, we were able to keep track of the numbers on a monthly magazine.
it was so simple to also check "if my numbers ever won" online and see which numbers we can flip around in order not to get repeated sets. BUT now with the new lottomax maxamillions - The big jackpot live tonight dont even record and take those numbers into the system where we can check "if my numbers ever won". Like, how do we know we arent predicting the same numbers that had already gone out in the maxamillions?!?
(THE SAME 7 NUMBERS WILL NOT COME OUT AGAIN) so are we being scammed with predicting numbers too?
Hi Maurice, thanks for your inquiry. All correspondence received by our customers, either through e-mail, regular mail, social media or on phone calls is addressed, answered and documented by our Customer Care Center at Atlantic Lottery.
We appreciate and welcome customer feedback and identify any complaints which are reviewed regularly by executives to continuously improve our processes and products. Kind regards, Mel
Hello Larry, Thank you for sharing your concerns. The larger jackpots are a result of the five jurisdictions’ combined population buying tickets.
If the jurisdictions were divided up into smaller groups, and the lottery divided between those groups, the smaller populations could not support large jackpot amounts like our National games currently have. We have a large percentage of our players who love playing for the bigger jackpots; and others prefer playing for smaller jackpots, which is where our Regional games come into play.
These games are exclusively available for Atlantic Canadians to play and win. For example: Atlantic 49 is our top Regional game, with a jackpot amount of $1 million. Keno Atlantic is a Regional game with a top jackpot of $, Our other Regional games include Poker Lotto, Salsa Bingo, Lotto4, and Bucko. This gives our players the choice of what kinds of games they want to play. Kind regards, Mel
here we are am in the morning, numbers not posted in atlantic Canada.
Ontario woaa ,winning numbers up and running,,lotto poker? still waiting,,, some up grade huh? Atlantic lottery? Come on by,, this is notunhappy, unhappy, unhappy
Good Afternoon Geno, thank you for your message.the big jackpot schedule 2022
I spoke with our draws department and the Lotto 6/49 and Atlantic 49 numbers were posted to alc.ca by am, other regional games were posted by am Atlantic time. I would suggest deleting any temporary internet files or clearing your cache (depending on which browser you use) if they dont seem to be up to date. If you are using a link from your "favorites" sometimes they dont update automatically.
If we can be of further assistance, please let us know. Regards, Nicki
Wow! The Quebec allowance to be able to CHOOSE ALL numbers really is DISGRACEFUL. I play Lottomax according to the average winning numbers, it is all luck but really.the typical winning number strategy variation is SOME SORT of educated guessworkAND.on average my own picked numbers get a higher return. Like going to a football game and being told that your team is going to play barefoot and the other team can wear kleats.
(and that is just the way it is so suck it up) And you Lotto officialsnot showing the ball draw LIVE onlinethe more you squirm for a lame reason the MORE you look guilty of fraudulent activity.
Hello Joe, Most players prefer the Insta-Pik option.
Over 92% of all LOTTO MAX number selections sold in Atlantic Canada are made with Insta-Pik, and so we offer Atlantic Canadian players the option of selecting one line of numbers (7 numbers) for every 3 lines played (21 numbers). Each and every possible combination of numbers has the same odds of winning, regardless of whether or not the numbers are selected by the player or by a Insta-Pik.
(The statistic is based on total Lotto Max sales - for any number of boards (). In other words, total Lotto Max sales VIA Insta-Pik divided by total Lotto Max sales.) If you have additional inquiries, please feel free to contact us. Thanks Mat
What Joe Sixpack was trying say was, most of the times when Quickpick or Insta-Pik chooses the numbers randomly for us - we get some messed up numbers.
Numbers that most likely will not come out. For example, yes we get to choose our own numbers for the first 7, but the 2 other random picks come out as: and then the 3rd random comes out as . They honestly come out like that, no chances at all. I have been studying the lotto winning numbers for 20 years and they are all scattered, and this Insta-Pik picks the numbers so unfair most of the times.
I know you Lottery people have no control on computers randomly generating picking numbers, and thats what we mean, that is what we are requesting, we People are requesting to please let us able to pick all 21 numbers in Lottomax. If you guys cannot stream live videos for some really really weird and odd excuse that you guys were told to keep saying to us - then atleast let us pick all 21 numbers on our own.
"us smaller cities matter" . give us a chance and stop giving our money to the bigger richer provinces. "The Rich keeps getting Richer, Poors keep getting Poorer."
I hear what Will is saying. Here is what they are told to keep saying to us: "Our regional draws are done by Random Number Generator and therefore there is not much for the player to see.
Secondly, it was difficult for television networks to insert a segment of the required length at a precise time every draw night as well as the unpredictability of the time slot. I want to assure you that our lottery draws are conducted with the highest standards to uphold the publics trust. Strict guidelines are followed and external auditors are present for the draw.
All of our draws are taped and we are more than happy to share a specific draw if requested. The Lotto Max, Lotto draws are all performed with a ball machine at the ILC lottery head office in Ontario. Every draw is videotaped, and you can find them on our Youtube channel by searching for Atlantic Lottery on www.youtube.com." Just stream the draw for FREE on Youtube ?!?!
oh my God!. Clearly streaming FREE The big jackpot live tonight youtube avoids network televising and time scheduling. ITs FREE on Youtube! Even someone on the set where the draw is being held can even take their cell phone out and start video recording LIVE on snapchat or Instagram on Facebook on Youtube or even create a lotto website on your computer and stream it!
We honestly do not live in the 80s and 90s anymoreTechnology" has taken over the World!! and it is impossible to hide anything in todays society. You should even have random bystanders outside your building or random customers to inspect the tubes and the dome making sure it is just all a simple vacuum thats randomly sucking numbers. Yes you have mentioned: "Our National draws, Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49, are conducted using a ball machine.
The balls used for the draws are measured and weighed every six weeks. If even one of the balls slightly varies in weight or diameter, the complete set is replaced." Like how do we know that ?!? How do we know that these people who measure the balls arent working for the scamming industry? Remember, "In Todays society, it is impossible to keep anything a secret." The more you Lottery corporation keep doing this (no live stream, you cant pick all 21 numbers for lottomax but others can) the more people are going to catch on.
Technology someday will catch you. Canada lottery jackpot winners are only chosen in Quebec, Ontario and Alberta. YOU ALL WATCH TONIGHT! lets see which province the Big Jackpot winner will go to tonight or maybe next weeks draw.
I agree with DJ on this one.
couldnt have said it better myself.
Well said DJ! I woke up this morning and checked this website hoping I would finally get a response, I still havent got a response with my concern -_-
You all already know what their going to New online slots no deposit
right? John F. had already asked this similar question above.
--> "Integrity and security are at the core of every game we offer and fundamental to what we do. Nationally recognized firms, which audit both national and regional draws, have confirmed that both the ball machine and Random Number Generator methods offer the same standards of security and integrity. Third-party experts have tested and certified the Random Number Genrator software, which signals any modification to any component of the system that has an influence on the outcome.
There are a number of other checks and balances that are the accountability of third-party experts – from onsite draw auditors to the verification of equipment and software." . These people responding to us are just told what to keep saying to us over and over and over again. Clearly were not angry and cannot be angry at the people responding to us on here. So for all of us to keep complaining on here will really go no where.
Our voices are being heard and they have said --> "our comments and Firelink casino game are forwarded to the executives" . The executives that Neptune slot machine wouldnt do anything about our concerns.
You all are adults, we should know how this world works. "It is not all sun shines and rainbows." We keep complaining hoping for the truth and a fair share and fair game. This corporation isnt going to change for you! Its like you telling someone to change their birth date and the way they walk. Nothing is changing for any of you. These people are just here to give you a peace-of-mind, to educate you to what they want you to believe.
All your requests about live streams and able to pick all numbers and splitting corporations will never be granted. I hate to say this but: were all will always be losers in this lottery world - UNLESS you move to Quebec and Ontario and Alberta.
I do not agree with you Bill W. Anything is possible. Of course Quebec and Ontario will win the big jackpot tonight we all know that, but us smaller cities will always have that % chance to win the $5, on the next draw.
At least we have a chance.
As a Atlantic Canadian why so we see the bulk of winnings in all forms going to Newfoundland be it scratch tickets or lottery tickets. Most of us notice the constant winners coming from NFLD. Do they spend more or buy more tickets then the rest of Atlantic Canada??
Good Morning John, Thank you for your question.
The answer to your question is yes. Newfoundlanders do spend more money than NS, PE & NB. If youd like more information you can follow this link, which is available on our website; https://www.alc.ca/content/dam/alc/docs-en/Corp/AboutAL/WhoisAL/AnnRepts/AnnualReportENG.pdf. For quick reference to your questions, you may want to check pages 25, 30/ If you have any further questions, please do let us know.
Kind Regards, Darlene
this is for John above and about nfld winning more,,well lest just say the more money you spend,( you get rewarded. The lottery wants you to spend more money,,, even though you have just as much CHANCE as anybody else in Canada when you buy one ticket.
OK? :) LOL Sorry John Im just being a little bit funny here.Have you ever thought that certain people know where the winning scratch tickets are going? Well ALC? does the company that makes the scratch tickets know which pack has the top prize and where its going? Just another question that nobody askes.
Good morning Geno, an independent printing firm prints Scratch N Win tickets.
Once winning and non-winning tickets have been printed and randomly packaged, they are delivered to Atlantic Lottery for random distribution to lottery centers across Atlantic Canada. The location of winning scratch tickets is only known to Atlantic Lottery officials after a winner comes forward to claim a prize. Kind regards -Alysia
I believe what Geno was asking was - how is it possible that all winning scratch n win tickets are delivered to Newfoundland on a random? Are you meaning to say - for example: if Newfoundlers boughtscratch n win tickets - they would have a higher chance to win against Quebec buyers oftickets?
and Ontariotickets? and B.C.tickets? - (As we all already know - there are a lot more gamblers in Quebec and Ontario and B.C. as proof they win the lotto every Friday.) "So how is it possible that a tiny province can defeat all 3 BIG provinces on scratch n win? But cannot win big jackpots on Lotto?" We keep hearing everything is equal and random and fair and this and that -- but I honestly been scratching my head with everything I am reading on here.
Well as what Bill W mentioned above, we wont be heard. Life goes on.
You guys noticed when someone has a good point, they dont get answered? Maybe some of our questions might be too silly I dont know, but I would of liked to see a response. But anyway, let me conclude everyones questions into one question. Here it is: 1.
Please, just stream the draws already. "They are FREE on youtube and Facebook." You can even create a free website that can stream Neptunes kingdom slot FOR FREE. You dont even need to steal a time slot off a television show (We dont live in the 90s anymore). 2. Have a purchase ratio monitor online that shows which province is purchasing more scratch n wins tickets and lotto. 3.
Split the lotto corporations -> Have Quebec, Ontario and B.C. on their own separate lottomax and draws and jackpots -- and -- Have Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and those other eastern Atlantic Ocean provinces on their own lottomax and draws and jackpots - also (with rising jackpots and NOT just stuck on a 2miilion dollar jackpots.) 4. Please let ALL provinces who play Lottomax have the chance to pick ALL 21 numbers on their tickets.
I Has anyone won online slots this really unfair knowing some of the quick picks or insta-picks we get are garbage, for example: like seriously.?
the big jackpot - new videos
We all know its computer generated and that is exactly why we want to pick the numbers ourselves. Of course you may Dragon king online gambling that "most of your winners win by quick picks." Yes we understand that, but the winning quick picks seem to be only given to Quebec, Ontario and B.C. Please realize that. 5. You honestly all need to re-consider these maxmillions.
You guys illuminated Super 7 that cost $3 and replaced it with the same game for $ It was already impossible to The big jackpot live tonight even 4 numbers on Super Now we have to match all 7 on maxmillions just to win? even if you advertised "There are maxamillion chances to win!" - same thing, sometimes you would get 2 winners maybe even 5, either or thats still scamming us for our buck.
Just please make the maxmillions prizes similar to the normal prizes; $10 for 3 numbers, $20 for 4, $ for 6 and so on. If you do not agree, then atleast make the Lottomax jackpots go even higher and above $80mil and $mil. Well anyway, thats all for now. Please respond to all 5 questions so we all have a peace-of-mind. Please pass this message to the executives and please tell them to answer me on here so we can all see. As we ALL repeatedly predict and have said, "Fridays Lottomax winning jackpot of $60, was won by one lucky ticket purchased only in Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia.
We are tired and sick of seeing this every Saturday morning. Please hear me.
Good afternoon DJ, thank you for your inquiries. I have reached out to the appropriate individuals to get you the correct information.
We will get back to you as soon as we can.

- What are the odds, Jack later said he was thinking, that one little convenience store would sell two lucky tickets?

- The overall odds of winning any prize is

- The reported divorce is increased by just 3 percent for lottery winners.
Thank you Joline, and sorry to sound like a complainer.
You do not sound like a complainer at all DJ. The way I see it, you are helping us all by making our Canada lottery system to be finally equal and fair. I myself is a victim of buying hundreds of dollars worth of lottery tickets and to wake up on a Saturday morning with only 2 free plays and 5 bucks.
Not only that, to see which city the jackpot was won in makes me cringe. Another Ontario millionaire, another B.C. millionaire, another Quebec millionaire and another Alberta millionaire. The pattern hasnt changed and is only getting worst. Best part of this is, a lot of us are finally realizing this.
It would only be in a matter of a couple years when all of us would start a rally Best las vegas casino for slots the lottery building wanting equality.
Sorry to say this Allison but, Wednesdays - 40million dollar jackpot was won by 3 tickets purchased in Ontario, B.C.
and Quebec . lol we might as well just hand those provinces our thousands of dollars every year. They should just call Lottomax and "The Quebec Ontario B.C. Fund". This is ridiculous.
hahaha and the guaranteed prize winner was sold in Alberta, and all the free plays were given to Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nfld and PEI.
They dont even need to say sold or wonthe losing tickets literally was just given to Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nfld and PEI.
Jok Tjie Yap
I believe that the "total or % amount of sales" per region data is displayed (or available) for each draw result, then the more sales and hence more jackpot prize winning claim (fact) will be more valid.
Did I tell all of you who was going to win the jackpot on Wednesday??
am I a magician or what?? lol. We all predicted this. another Quebec wins the millions of dollars and another Ontario and Albertan wins the 6+bonus. and hey why not sneak a little city to make it less obvious - lets sneak in Saskatchewan. thatll show these people this lotto is not fixed. But no matter what goes on here, jackpots will always go to Ontario, Quebec, B.C.
Wow what a surprise this morning!!!!! Quebec won the 40 mil Lotto and Ontario and Quebec wo second prize,,oh they allowed West to slip in there. heheheheheheheheh and I do believe Ontario won the Guaranteed prize.the big jackpot youtube
yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssss. Just kidding folks.I see there still rubbing it in. but remember you still have the same chance in all the other places. Right ?
Sorry Peter above,,I didnt read your post until after mine. Im from NFLD. Can you tell me how close I am too winning the BIG ONE?
Hi Geno, Lotto Quebec is the only jurisdiction who allows players to pick all three lines. They originally launched it like the rest of the country, but, changed it later due to customer requests. AL has a small number of Lotto Max players who pick their own numbers approx. 3%, therefore the amount this change would cost, is not a cost effective solution for us. LQ may have been able to do this, as they have a much larger customer base which enables them to perhaps add extra features we are not able to.
Let us know if you have any further questions. Kind Regards, Matt To this earlier response I ask this: When and how exactly did the players of Province of Quebec request this in large enough numbers to get the lotto corps response? Exactly. What number of requests did they achieve to warrant a response from the lotto corp?
Can the corp substantiate this? Why no notification to other The big jackpot live tonight playing the same game? Even now.

lol Dean, you have the same chances of me winning the jackpot (1 in ,,) . But who knows, you are probably a lucky guy. Hopefully you get those millions someday and prove us all wrong.
But my prediction in general is that - if you spend atleast $20 on lottomax - you would definently win a freeplaythats my prediction lol. Thats how it is for me as well it seems - if I spent $5 to $10 I win nothing. If I spent $20 to $30 I sometimes get a free play. If I spent $50 I sometimes would win $5 and free play. woop-ti-doo. Its been like this for years.
But its times like this when your mind tells you to just give it up - I will never win And when the day you finally do decide to give up - your numbers finally just magically comes out. (Alanis Morissette - "Isnt it Ironic ?")
Sorry Dean, I meant the previous message to Geno.
And Eve online mid slot is a good question Dean! I hope there is some kind of petition slips indicating we demand to have all 21 numbers chosen by ourselves. I think if we can gather enough people and request to have an option to get all 21 numbers on Lottomax be open to the public to choose and not quick picks in every province - I think that might work?
Personally I dont think the people of Quebec petitioned or requested as a group to pick all their own lottomax numbers. I would like to know when and how that happened along with evidence plus why it was not important to tell the other people in Canada or ask if they wanted to as well. Of coarse people will quick pick if they can only choose one of the 3 linessketchy business practice for a supposedly random event.
Its a computer why does it matter if I pick all the numbers?
Im buying provincial western lotto only going forward.
So then its a go. We all want to be able to pick all our lotto max numbers if we want, just like Quebec. This is now a request to ALC. Could you get the ball rolling and get a form out to the people so we can all sign it if thats what it takes?
Didnt realize about Quebec for that reason Im not playing anymore and telling my friends about it too.
It should all be the same, for were all Canadians.
I strongly agree with everyone on here. I am all in with everyone being able to choose all numbers on lottomax (and have a box option for those who want quick picks or insta-picks). Shouldnt it have been equal from the beginning?
Regardless if we were granted and able to choose all numbers, We still dont know if the lotto corp purposely only seeks and chooses 7 numbers from Quebec, Ontario, B.C. and Alberta. Because they keep their draws so secretive and hidden! for example "no live streaming or random customers able to visit and examine the draw dome and balls before the draw".
They mentioned they have 3rd parties inspectors inspecting the balls - but who are these people? What are their names so we can do security and information checks on them. How do we know that John Smith isnt a fraud inspector? But oh well. I guess tonight well witness another Quebec B.C. Albertan and Ontarian win another 60 million jackpot. Honestly everyone who works at the Atlantic Lotteries, what are we going to do here?
do you guys have any plans to let other provinces with 50 to 60 million dollars? not just once or twice - but equally all year round. Or do we just let it be and keep letting Ontario and Quebec and B.C. and Alberta win? unbelievable.
Yup! another 60 million dollars will go to either Ontario Quebec British Columbia and Alberta tonight.
The pattern every year does not change and yet the CANADA lottery industry Free lobstermania slot game download go on like this. Yes, I purposely made CANADA all capitals because there are 10 provinces and 3 territories that are made in CANADA, and not just (4) Ontario Quebec British Columbia and Alberta. Not to hate on these provinces but look at what an un-fair lottery system is doing to us.
I hope we all dont get shot or murdered for opening our mouths. Witness unite!!
Rachel, you are one crazy gal haha. 2 males with white sneaker addidas and a beard will follow you everyday to hurt you and make you disappear . I am kidding! No no, the industry would not do something like that your are crazy!- you havent gathered enough people to follow you to change the lottery system.
And its not like you are taking money away from politics and people with high power who live in Quebec and Ontario. People with high power have other ways to make money and not just lottery scamming. So to answer your question, I say no.
Wow, how did we get onto that topic? Rachel and Joseph lets keep the subject realistic lol.the big jackpot youtube
All we are all asking here is to let other provinces win $60 Million in lotto, and by doing so we request other options to make it possible.
You guys are so funny. You all just made my day :)
I mean All we are say ing Is give us a chanceALC All we are say ing Is give us a chance :) I think everyone from customer services is gone, were on our own
lol I agree with you Geno.
I believe we made them upset and irritated, Honestly we dont mean to upset anybody in the lotto corp. But as proof - take a look at all the winner locations on Friday and Saturdays lotto, it was ALL Ontario and Quebec. It was almost as if we were all being punished for what we say about Ontario and Quebec and B.C Maybe its time we all step down and keep our mouths shut. We honestly mean no disrespect, we were just wondering if it was possible to let our smaller cities The big jackpot live tonight a from time to time.
That was all. If its not possible to let our cities win a couple times a year, then please just let us know. And atleast we for once and for all will finally know that Canadas lottery industry is only made for Ontario and Quebec and British Columbia to win the jackpots and maxmillions and gauranteed prize draws 95% of the time.
Please just let us know so we can all stop day dreaming about what if we won 60million dollars.
DJ, you said it all in a nutshell. What needed to be said, you said itNow we wait for the big change. Power to the people, oops LOL
lol thanks. just kind of upsetting spending all that time and money just to win one free play and $2.
Plus, I was almost about to contact the lottery corp when I thought they took down this category conversation lol. But I found it, I think they just changed their system.
So are there any customere care reps. available to get back to me about whats happening to all our issues and whether any of them are being taken seriously and maybe worked on?
I believe the staffs at Atlantic Lotteries have answered all of our repetitive questions.
The question is, are the executives and genius creators doing anything about all our requests and concerns?
Imagine all of us on this conversation page had created change in history? imagine we were the brains that developed a new system in Canada lottery? I would literally feel like I finally won something in the lottery industry if the questions and concerns that we all gathered together had an outcome that made an impact and changes the lotto system!?
I cant wait to see what Atlantic Lottery comes up with to make all cities and provinces of Canada win big jackpots equally! Looking forward to their new system :)
This is to ALC to show what happens to lotto max numbers when you can only pick the first set. just gonna show the numbers that repeat my numbersX 11 X X 27 41 42 computer #s X X X 41 42 47 X X X 11 27 X X 47 now do you see what happens when you cant pick them all the lottery computer does a lot of repeating tough luck if none of them comes up.
hope this explains it a little bit
I have to make it clearer X 11 X X 27 41 42my numbers X X X 41 42 47 X computer numbers X X 11 27 X X 47
“Where does the remaining un-won maxmillions go?” I noticed everyweek that the maxmillions rises but the jackpot of $60, doesn’t get any higher. For example, last night we had 42 extra maxmillion draws - but only 17 of them was won, ‘where does the extra 25 million go?’ .
Have you guys ever thought about perhaps just making the maxmillion draws as a ‘gauranteed prize draws?’ - Plus, the maxmillions numbers doesn’t even get recorded into the ‘have my numbers ever won’ website? The same 6 to 7 numbers will never come out ever again. Is there a way we can also get those maxmillion numbers added into the ‘have my numbers ever won’ system?
Hi Marquis, Thank you for your comments.
The money not won goes into the next draw. I will put your idea forth as a suggestion regarding Max Millions, we have had other folks suggest the same thing. We do not have a have my number ever won system on alc.ca, so we cannot add those numbers to it. If there is anything else, let us know. Kind Regards, Darlene
So can you see why I want tp pick all my numbers for lotto max? It;s hard enough getting the numbers.
Most of the time two to three numbers are repeatedand by the way the money has been there.why cant we have the Have my numbers ever won system on our site *ALC?
Hi Can you explain to me why the ball system was dropped for Atlantic 49 and thr R N G was brought in instead? I asked this before I think and wanted to know what the benifts were to do so.
Hi Geno, thank you for your inquiry.
The RNG system was designed to be as unpredictable as a ball-drop draw. There are considerable safeguards as well as verification by external auditors occurs for ALL lottery draws regardless of how the results are generated. In terms of RNG, like the ball machine, the actual machines for RNG are kept in a safe in a controlled room at Interprovincial Lottery Corporation (ILC) offices.
As well, there is an external audit of the draw itself. ALL lottery draws are audited internally and externally and there are a number of checks and balances that are the accountability of third party experts - from on-site auditors for draws to the verification of equipment by third party certification experts. The software itself is designed to signal any modification to any component of the system that has an influence on the outcome. As for why and when this was put into place, I will have to gather that information and will get back to you.
Thank you Nicki. You couldnt answer my question and I understand.you having to check into it further. There has to be a reason and I could say for an argument thatI think lotteries avoid the ball machine and use theRNG because they want to control how many people win to ensure a profit.
Now ALC. could say *oh no no no, we wouldnt do that. well I have heard a lot of oh no nos in my life time of 66 years so ,I would really like an inteligent Find me free slot machines as to why the ball machine which people prefer by the way was dropped and the RNG computer was favoured.
Just an honest question!!
whoa whoa. what am I reading here? The draws are computer generated now?

this is like playing roulette at the casino but instead of using the real wheel - theyve got computers choosing "random" numbers to obviously avoid the numbers that are most likely favored. any lottery corporations and gambling systems should avoid using any type of technology, especially on lottery draws.
Hi, what is the difference between Atlantic LotteriesOLGand WCLC ??
which company actually does the in-house draws? example, who does the lottomax and lotto draws? thanks!
Good afternoon JC, thank you for your inquiry. Atlantic Lotteries are responsible for New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island. OLG is for the province of Ontario only. WCLC is responsible for Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
BCLC would be for the province of British Colombia only. There is also LQ for the province of Quebec. The Lotto Max and 6/49 draws are done by random ball drop at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming headquarters in Toronto and are overseen by the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation. There are independent auditors present at each draw and the balls are weighed and tested regularly.
For further The big jackpot live tonight, dont hesitate to contact us. Regards, Joline
Okay, this might sound a little silly. If I believe hard enough and wished and hope that I will win this 60 million dollars on lottomax this Friday. Do you think It will happen? Thanks!
I want to win
Here I will answer your question.
We all feel the same way as you Jo. Especially me, I mean - just look at my name? We all have dreams, winning the lotto is by luck and not by hope.
my question about why the ball sysyem was dropped and the R.N.Generator is being used for atlantic well, the answer I got needs to be a little more clearer I think. what are the benifits? All I got was!!!!! Good afternoon Geno, thank you for your question. TECHNOLOGY IS EVOLVING and the future plans are that the National games will also be conducted using the RNG system.
For further inquiries, dont hesitate to contact us. Regards, Joline
So I want to know will I get an answer as to why the ball machine was given up in favour of a computer for the atlantic and ,if it was a plus for the ticket buyers or making it less of a chance to win
Good evening Geno, RNG is used to streamline and simplify the draws.
It is safe, secure and reliable and allows results to be more easily audited. It does not change any game conditions. Regards., Olivier
So the jackpot in Lottomax wasnt won for a total of 11 weeks. Then on the 4th week the extra maxmillions draws started accumulating.
We have a total of about + max millions draws within 8 weeks, and about million maxmillions was not won. thats (+$, million dollars unclaimed). My question is, you guys told us that the remaining unclaimed and un-won max millions will be added onto the next draw. But why did the jackpot only increase by $20miilion dollars? But you have +$, million dollars of un-won max millions? Where did the 80miilion go?
Hi Ray, thank you for your question.
The extra millions help pay out all the secondary prizes included in Lotto Max. This prize amount would include not only paying out the top prize but any prizes Bally free slots maxmillions and all secondary prizes such as free tickets. The jackpot is estimated each week based on actual sales experienced from the week before as well as estimated sales for The big jackpot live tonight following week.
Hi Ray now you understand where all that money went right? heheheheheh that answer didnt do anything for meWhat would have happened if all the maxmillions had of been won? who would have helped out with all the bullshit secondary prizes and the free tickets and so on?
GOOD point Geno. What I am starting to realize after reading all these lotto websites - is that, "Lottomax is not made to give everyone a chance to win but to make more money from customers." They already knew that it would be impossible for everyone to win all 55 max millions.
They also knew that only a handful of people would win out of the 55 extra draws -- and thats why they dont want to make it as guaranteed prize draws. <-- they would lose money this way and our jackpots would be stuck around the 30 million dollar range with 55 guaranteed prize draws I mean, they should of just left it the way it was during the Super 7 times.
But well see in a year if they decide to change it to guaranteed prize draws instead of maxmillions. They should just say no they wont change instead of saying we will forward your concerns to the executives.
Personally for me, I am getting closer to not wanting to be a contributer to Lotto and Lottomax winners from Ontario and Quebec and the West., which I have stated all alongThey win 90% plus all the time and I dont care if its because they buy more tickets.
Atlantics chance in winning the top prize is 1 in 13million of 5% and 1 in 28million (lottomax) of 5%Bad bad odds for poor people. Gonna soon stick with just Atlantic Lottery. Well see what happens then, I have another plan
well never guess what?
I didnt play lotto max. I checked the numbers I would have played and not even a free ticket. Of course the numbers that would have been picked by the Random number Generator of ALC I dont know cus I cant pick all my numbers like Quebec can. :) yeah right
never guess what again folks? I didnt play lotto last nitegood thing too, I wouldnt have had even a free ticket but, we all know who won top prize.
The place where they only buy 44% or so of the tickets so I readOntario!!!!! Good for them. Anyway by not playing just as well to say I won 3 dollars. I wonder does ALC know what % of the ticket sales for lotto the Atlantic provinces buy? Can you tell us please?
Good morning Geno, Atlantic Lotterys average percentage of 6/49 sales for is %.
I just went through all the questions and comments on this ask me site and just about % want to pick all 3 sets of lottomax numbers.the big jackpot - new videos
So my question is * Do we matter ?when we want this issue solved and to be fair to us players in Atlantic Canada? Maybe some managers can answer this.
Good afternoon Geno, Customer feedback is very important to us. We appreciate and welcome customer comments and take them into consideration when making updates and/or changes to any of our products.
As we have already explained, when our Super 7 game retired and we introduced Lotto Max, we discovered that only a very small percentage of our players were picking all three rows of numbers. For that reason, the decision was made that players would only be able to select the first row of numbers and the other two would be insta pick numbers. This decision remains the same even though there will be changes to the Lotto Max game in May.
The odds of winning the jackpot are the same regardless if a player chooses their numbers or if they are computer generated. Kind regards -Alysia
Good afternoon to you Alysia First of all you need to check your words,,,and we introduced Lotto Max, we discovered that only a very small percentage of our players were picking all three rows of numbers.
As far as I know we never ever had that option of picking 3 sets of numbers so that could not be a reasonand also who did the study if there was one done about the cost to allow people like me to pick 3 sets? If I remember correctly there was a game that was introduced a few years back that was a flop and cost millions of dollars to get rid off. The letters Geo comes to mind. So Im asking show us players some respect
So no managers will answer my concerns about picking all 3 sets of lottomax numbers so I assume youre getting info from them to make statements like * this decision remains the same and there will be no changes.
so whats with this bit about taking our comments into consideration and making the game better for us? Is this just Bull?
If I had of known Lotto max draw was gonna be for OntarioQuebecBC. and West onlyI wouldnt have played. For the love of God you should tell us when this is gonna happen.
And this is with the Ball system,,whats it gonna be like when its RNG. time. and theres much more control over the numbers picked. Should be interesting NO? Hehehe to all you Atlantic players, merry xmas. :)
Oh I forgot to mention, all profits stay in Atlantic Canada. but not all the Atlantic money spent on buying Lottomax.
Hmmmm must have been a few bucksJust in asking, whats the typical number of Atlantic people playing Lottomax anyway when its this high? Dont have to answer right away, I can wait?
so is ask away gonna be discontinued? I mean I ask a question like the one above and and some one is being awfully ignorant to me. I was told any question would be answered.
So whats the problem. Cant I ask questions?
Ok so Ill ask another question, Has the top prize been won for Poker Lotto yet? the ,? Soon be time. By the way, I cancelled my online account for ALC because of being ignored and not answering my questions. Not that it matters. 90 odd % failure rate dont seem that much of a good investment anyway.
Good job on the 58 million upgrade. Old system was way better, I told you so
Good morning Geno, we have had a top prize winner of $, on Poker Lotto back in March of If you would like to see more winners, they can be found on our alc.ca website. Here is the link: https://www.alc.ca/content/alc/en/corporate/are-you-a-winner/winners.html.
Great Brianna now just one more question and thats itI promise. when you win a set for life on a scratch ticket and you choose the a week for life, do you loose the payments if you die within a few months after you win ? because a lot of people think so.
Good morning Geno, great question.
For Set for Life, the winner has the option of naming a beneficiary at the time of claiming their prize. If the winner passes away before the 25 year period ends, the $1, per week would go to the beneficiary for the remainder of the 25 year period or the beneficiary can choose the present value of the annuity payments in one lump sum. If no beneficiary was named, the value of the remaining annuity payments for the guaranteed period is paid in a lump sum to the estate.
Could you tell me where and how the profits are spent, in each province? Im not sure Ive ever seen a school or breakfast program or library or foodbank or community The big jackpot live tonight say they received a donation from alc.ty.
Thanks for your question Cheryl.
Atlantic Lottery is owned by the four provincial governments of Atlantic Canada. Our profit goes back to those governments (instead of in the hands of private entities or leaving our region altogether), and they use those profit dollars to help make our communities stronger by funding the public services we all use, such as healthcare and education. In$ million in profit was distributed back to Atlantic Canada.
You can find our annual report and audited financial statements at: https://www.alc.ca/content/alc/en/corporate/about-atlantic-lottery/who-is-al/annualreports. Html I hope this information is helpful. Kind regards, James
Out here in west(BC actually)- I Agee with posters.
Have been buying group Lotto Max 3 years now and most wins every 6 months purchase has been $/18 people.(in 6 month buy-in). That’s $11 each after each paying $52 each 6 months. Point is usual winners Ont or Que.(96% if the time). How can a random number generate only the numbers sold in those provinces, so often. Has to be fixed- unless everyone quick picks and computer unable to discern where. Here in BC we have 4 number Extra attached- where I live, buy more than one ticket and the Extra numbers 95% are containing the same bloody numbers.
How is this possible if random. Not likely. Afraid the lottery numbers just don’t add up.
so whats up with BC winning all the time now,,,,,,lotto max,,,,DailyGrandhmmmmmmseems like a liberal thing
Made a bet with my buddy about Poker Lotto (again.)!!! I had two aces. A diamonds and A of hearts on my Ticket.
I bet him that the A of spades and the A of clubs would come up. Never guess what? the RNG. that picks the cards did its job. A of spades and the A of clubswho would have thought. I guess too many players had the same Aces like me.
I believe that the numbers should be picked live such as they were in Ontario Watching it on TV would bring back faith in the system thats for sure as who has faith in "random" number picking "software" what about sucking up the numbers on the little white balls with the numbers printed on them like Bingo, now thats more random and believable than a random number picking machine, anyone with some computer experience What does rtp mean in slots
manipulate that, sorry its just not beleivable Ive also noticed that if you go for a quick pick say in the draws ive noticed the numbers are always in similar groupings such as : 02, 08, 14, 23, 34, Why do the quick pick numbers not begin randomly in higher numbers such as 26, 37, 39, 41, 42, 49 ?
I have never witnessed quick pick numbers randomly selected like this its always some seemingly similar numbers that I believe are in the same sequence as the guy behind me in line I asked the guy behind me to show me his numbers one day and they were from the same sequence or columns of numbers Through the wall mail slot the random selection software selected for us kindly explain this?
Hello Bruce, Thank you for your inquiry Integrity and security are at the core of every game we offer and fundamental to the success of our business.
A transition to Random Number Generator software for Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max improves ease of auditability to support the future evolution of these national games, while maintaining their security, speed and integrity. Many of your favourite national lottery games already use Random Number Generator software, including DAILY GRAND, the Guaranteed Prize Draw feature of Lotto 6/49 and the MAXMILLIONS feature of Lotto Max.
Nationally recognized firms, which audit both national and regional draws, have confirmed that both the ball machine and Random Number Generator methods offer the same standards of security and integrity. Third-party experts have tested and certified the RNG software for randomness. When the software starts, an integrity check is performed on the system to ensure that no changes have been made that could affect the random outcome of the draw.
A number of other checks and balances are performed to ensure draw security and are witnessed by third-party experts – including two draw auditors located in two separate geographical locations. As for the numbers generated for instapik, they do not follow any sort of sequence as they are completely random. Should you require further assistance, please let us know. Kind regards, Mathieu
As LOTTO MAX players in Ontario can select the first set of seven LOTTO MAX numbers with the other two sets generated randomly, the LOTTO MAX random number generator is *set to prevent any of the selections of seven numbers on a ticket from being duplicated.
for example 1 2 3 4 5 6 7, your first set, that complete set wont come up for your sec. and third set.

because the RNG is set and I repeat SET by some body to prevent this. I have that in writing. I would assume all provinces are using the same RNG.

i have a question, i thought that it was mandatory to get your photo taken for large prizes.
yet almost every draw there is an ontario winner, probably hundreds each year with the max millionsbut you do not see any of these peoples photos on the web site, only a few from western canadamostly small prizes from 10 - 50 thousand. if theres hundreds of large prize winners each year, and its mandatory to get your photo taken, where are these people and why dont we see them?
Good morning Kirk, Thank you for your inquiry.
Large prizes of $10, and up need to be claimed Fun slot games visiting one of our regional offices or arranging to meet with one of our local representatives if you live in a remote area. A lawyer does not have to be present for this. Forms of ID that can be accepted would be provincial government photo ID such as a driver’s license or provincial ID card that shows your name and date of birth or a federal government issued passport that would also show your name and date of birth.
One of the requirements of claiming the prize is allowing Atlantic Lottery to use the winner’s name, photo and win information in the media and other forms of publicity for one year after claiming the prize. For more information about the claim process please visit https://alc.ca/content/alc/en/corporate/are-you-a-winner/claiming-your-prize.html and for details on the winner’s publicity policy please visit https://alc.ca/content/alc/en/corporate/are-you-a-winner/al-winners-publicity-policy.html.
For further information on other lottery jurisdiction, you would need to contact their head office or visit their The big jackpot live tonight. If we can be of further assistance, please let us know. -Tammy P.
So my question is, Do you know if our RNGs in Atlantic Canada can be set to prevent certain actions like RNGs in other places for ex. Ontario? I mentioned my concern Mar. 9 By the way I did speak to a rep.
when I phoned ALC. and was told my questions would be answered. So my question is important. I cant speak for anyone else but, I need to know.
Hi Geno. Atlantic Lottery and many other lotteries around the world, have decided to move towards Random Number Generators (RNGs) in order to modernizing, streamlining and simplifying the lottery-draw process in order to offer our players the best gambling and entertainment experience possible.
A transition to RNG software improves ease of auditability to support the future evolution of games, while maintaining their speed, security and integrity. We do not have any insight on how the RNGs are setup in other jurisdictions but we can confirm that the RNG software used here at Atlantic Lottery is not set to prevent certain actions, it is set to ensure that it is completely random.
Hi James At least you did say Atlantic Lotterys RNG is (SET) to ensure that it is random. Guess we ll have to wait for May 15/ or whatever to see how random Ontarios RNG is when it picks the winning numbers for lotto and Lotto maxIf its the same as the ball machine, 80 to 90% of the time Ontario gets it.
At least I know their RNG can be set to what they want. :)
Hello James I read your above comment,,ALC. and Triple cash wheel slot machine
lotteries have moved towards RNGs to offer the players the best gambling and enterainment experience possible I dont get it. Everyone whos The big jackpot live tonight
a comment on this site do not want a software program picking the winning numbers andit certainly doesnt make me feel better.
Also if ALC. doesnt have any insight on how the RNG that picks the winning numbers for lotto and lotto max and the max millions is set up and yet we buy tickets for these games through ALC, should I be concerned ? is my question.
Hi Geno, thanks for your comments.
You can rest assured that the RNG software Atlantic Lottery uses for all games is completely random. All RNGs used are independently tested and certified, both for generating random results and integrity to prevent manipulation. It’s important to note that the Insta Pik feature players can use when selecting their numbers is not the same as the RNG technology used to select winning numbers. The two systems are completely separate and one does not affect the other.
Integrity and security are at the core of every game we offer. We hope this information helps you understand and trust how our system operates. Kindest regards, Mel
Hi, Is the RNG computer connected (hardwire, Wifi, internet) to the computer that has all the individuals buyers ticket numbers?
What Slot Machines Have The Best Chance Of Winning
Which slot machines have the best odds and pay the best?One of the biggest joys of playing slot games is the fact you can win a big payout at any time. Anyone visiting a real casino will, at some point, experience the noise of someone nearby winning a big slot prize. There will be a little jealousy, but for the most part, we are all players in it together looking to make some cash. We share in someone elsersquo;s joy, if not their new pile of money. While many casual gamers have a hunch about the best slots to play, itrsquo;s often just that ndash; a feeling, with no basis of fact. However, some basic research will tell you that there are indeed some slot machines with the best odds of winning. Slot machines with the best odds of winningWhat you are looking for is a percentage figure known as the RTP, or return to player. The higher the percentage figure, the better the return. For example, slot machine odds of 97 indicate that, in theory at least, you will get back 97 for every you spend. Of course, you would need to sit at one slot game for weeks on end to prove the math. In reality, you are only visiting the slot for a tiny fraction of its lifespan, hence the way you can get lucky and be the recipient of a significant win. With that all said and done, if you prefer picking up more regular, small wins, then slots with a higher RTP are the ones to go for. They tend to be lower volatility, meaning you get more small prizes, but the bigger wins are infrequent. In high volatility slots, you might not bag many small wins, but now and then, you land a big payout. Typically, these will be jackpot slots. The best slots to playArmed with this knowledge about RTP percentages, we can soon find some slots that smart gamblers will seek out. The good news is that some of these are available at TwinSpires Casino. This is not a definitive list ndash; you might find better slot machine odds elsewhere ndash; but these are the more popular games. Reel Rush97Dead or AliveThunderstruck IITwin Spin DeluxeOzzy Osbourne Video SlotHarder slots for winningIn contrast, these are some examples of slots with a lower payout percentage. Although they do not offer the best odds, when they do pay out, they pay out big. Mega Moolah95Aztec's Treasure95Break Da Bank AgainJungle JimGonzo's Quest96Look around for the best payout slots onlineAdmittedly, searching around hundreds of slots online to find RTP figures might not be everyonersquo;s favorite hobby. Instead, you can use our list of comparable top fives. However, nothing beats trying the games out for yourself. Itrsquo;s always fun to spin the reels on a new slot for the first time, and as we have already said, you might get lucky at any moment. Online casinos like TwinSpires Casino have hundreds and hundreds of slots for you to choose from. No matter if you prefer jackpot slots, themed or classic slots, video slots, or feature-rich slot games, you will quickly find something you enjoy. Best of all, you can try all the slots for free first to see if you like them. When you do decide to create an account and play for real money, be sure to collect the new player bonus package. Good luck, but most of all, have fun. After all, casino games are a form of entertainment. Casino News .
Is the RNG computer pre programmed to limit the amount of winners for KENO?
Hi Bill, All RNGs used are independently tested and certified, both for generating random results and integrity to prevent manipulation.
It’s important to note that the Insta Pik feature players can use when selecting their numbers is not the same as the RNG technology used to select winning numbers. The two systems are completely separate and one does not affect the other. For each KENO Atlantic draw, ALC reserves the right to limit the total amount of prizes payable to $3 million.
For each KENO Atlantic draw in which the limit is reached or exceeded, the prizes payable will be determined in proportion to the prizes that would have been won if not for this limitation. It does not limit the amount of potential winners. Regards, James
Hi In the instant win game Western 7x7 there are 12 circles with a question mark. The game says you have to pick 7. How come when you lose, the rest of the remaining circles arnt uncovered to show that theres really a matching winning symbol there or is this a game where it might be there or it mighten be there It just seems like it would be exciting to see how close you were to the symbol you needed to win
Good morning Geno, thank you for your comments.
The Western 7x7 game was simply designed this way. We will certainly pass your comments along to see if its something that could possibly be changed. Have a great day! Mel
Goodday If the design for The Western 7x7 cant be changed, its gonna certainly ruin it for me to continue playing I mean to play a game and not knowing if you have a chance to win.
whats the point? unless its rigged and 90% of the plays or games are a no win regardless which of the last 6 circles you pick. It would be nice to know
Hi Geno, I do apologize, but the game has already been launched, therefore there will be no reconfiguring the design of the game at this point.
We have however sent your feedback over to our Marketing department for possible future games similar to this one for that feature. Have a great day, Mel
If thats the case of no changing the way the game is configured,I played the game about 10 times. should have hooked one winning symbol, itll be the last $2 for this game I ll be shelling outI would not recomend this game to anybodyrip off totally.
thats why all the circles arnt uncovered after the game is over.
Ill keep repeating,, why should atlantic people play lotto 95% of the time Ontario is gonna win. Thats a guarantee. look at the results tonite. just a repeat of all the other nights.
Ive been playing lotto over 30 years.
I agree all provinces should pick 3 lines on lotto max.If i wheeled my numbers it would be a significant saving. E.g. 25 lines cost $45 instead of $ Ive had over 50 free plays for one drawing and they were all losers! The western is hardly won. Roughly 4 times from Sept, to April I used to win $10 and $50 weekly on the old Western but just before and after the game was computerized my winnings stopped. Now, I get free plays from my own numbers and theyre % losers with the odd $10 or another free play.
Why cant I get my money back instead of losing free plays?
Actually, I had 5 and the bonus once on the western in but stupidly changed one number and ended up with $ win on my tickets. It would be good if losing tickets, lottery and scratch tickets both could be played in a second chance lottery like they do in California. Will this ever become a possibility The big jackpot live tonight
Good morning Jan, thank you for your inquiry. We do have a contest that is held each year similar to that called 2Chance. Our most recent one just ended on March 31st, Every $2 worth of eligible winning and non-winning Scratch N Win and Draw tickets purchased can be entered in our 2Chance.ca website. Doing this will earn a participant 2 entries: One Automatic WEEKLY CASH DRAW Entry and One Assignable Flex Entry towards 3 different prizes.
Stay tuned for our next contest release date! Kind Regards, Brianna
Of course Jan we should be allowed to pick our 3 sets of lotto max numbersif we have our 3 favourite sets of numbers it would cost $Right now to play our 3 sets, we have to spend $only one of our favourite set per ticket. And let us not forget what Ive been saying all along.
One province (Quebec) can pick all 3 sets for lotto max but the rest of us cant. seem right to you? maybe our next goverment will change that :)
I forgot to ask a question in my last comment, so Ill ask now. what does ALC. think about some people being able to pick their 3 sets of numbers on a single lotto max ticket and atlantic canada players cant?
Is this fair to us?
Thought for sure was gonna see P.E.I or N.W.T. getting a win this time. heheheheheheh yeah right I keep saying whats gonna happen guaranteed prizes you say? my question above would like to be answered too, 04/18/
So Ill rearrange my question. Does ALC think its fair that for me to use my 3 sets of favourite numbers, I have to spend dollars while Quebec players can play their 3 sets of favourite numbers and only have to pay dollars?
Could I have an answer to this please?
I was told I would get an answer to all my questions when I called ALC., so could I get an answer to my above question
Hi Geno, I have signaled our team about your concerns, and we will get back to you tomorrow when they are in.
Have a great end of your weekend. Kind regards, Mel
Hi Geno, Each regional lottery has their own rules and policies for games. These are based on factors including legislation, regulatory requirements or player demand. All lotteries in Canada give players the option of picking their first line of numbers.
Only Loto-Québec offers that for all three lines. Since the vast majority of Atlantic Lottery’s players make their selections using instapik, at this point there are not any changes planned. We will take your feedback and pass it along though. Thanks, Olivier
Hi Oliver Has anyone ever thought that maybe, the reason the vast majority of Atlantic players use instapik is because they can only pick one line anyway but regardless of thatmy question still remains why do I have to spend to play my favourite 3 sets of numbers while other people in Canada only need to spend dollars, for the same national Lottery andis that fair?
Hi Geno, We always appreciate getting customer suggestions, and we do share that feedback with the teams who deliver our products.
Your concern has been passed along. Have a great day, Nicki
my question Nicki is not a customer suggestion and I dont mean to be forward on this. I want to know, is the way we have to pick our lotto max numbers fair example* to use my 3 favourite sets of numbers will cost me dollars when, another bunch of Does slotomania pay real money
can play their 3 sets and only pay dollars.
Is that fair to me as a player Play goldfish slots online free a national lottery thats suppose to be canada wide?
Everyone should know, ONLY in Quebec, they can choose numbers for ALL THREE LINES and the remainder of Canada cant. Everywhere else, we can select the first line and QUICK PICKs for the other two lines.
Same lottery, DIFFERENT game conditions, NOT FAIR!
Thanks George, Every once in a while someone will say so that this practice of different rules for some people for a National Lottery is unfair. If our rights dont mean anything ,why in the hell should we be playing. Maybe the new lottomax time slot for Tuesdays that is comming should be only for Quebec and the Friday one for the rest of Canada.
Seeing as they let Quebec win the lottomax last nite,,,Ill still wait for an answer to my question asked may 1/ Can ALC tell me * Is it fair to me that Quebec can pick their 3 sets of numbers on a single ticket and I cant?
and if it is fair then, explain why to the rest of Canada please?
