I play the weekly draw's in Canada. And win small but not much yet. For the lotto 649, atlantic 49, also keno draw's. They are frustrating, but require patience!

 

See Ya!

    If they're like Ohio's Classic Lotto(6/49), you've got to be real patience.  For example when you match 3 and beat odds of 1:57 it only pays $2.  Even when I matched 5 in 2013 beating odds of 1:54201 it only paid $1500.  Considering each play cost $1, payouts per win are low.

      RJ, didn't Ohio have something like the Canada 6/49 back in the mid 90s?

      I remember playing the Ohio game and they printed something like the Canada 6/49 extra numbers on the Ohio tickets and you could win one of a handful of other prizes on the draws.

      Ohio was only $1 but Canada 6/49 is $3 for the way they do it and they give out 1 1,000,000$ prize every draw.
