HOW DO I CLAIM A PRIZE?

WHY DO I HAVE TO PUT MY NAME ON MY


TICKET?

Prizes of $1,000 or less may be claimed at any Lottery Ticket Centre able to
pay the prize. Although Retailers are asked to pay prizes up to $200, not all
retail locations offer a redemption service for larger amounts. Before handing
your ticket to the Retailer to cash, it is recommended that you know how much
you have won and ask them if they have the funds available to pay the prize.

We recommend you print your name on all your lottery tickets at the time
of purchase, as this prevents another person from claiming any major
prize, should the ticket be lost. In addition, Retailers cannot check or
validate lottery tickets unless your name is printed or legibly signed on the
ticket. A signature line is provided on the front for validation purposes,
and its also a good idea to print your name, address and telephone
number on the back.

Prizes over $1,000, Collect to Win prizes and merchandise prizes may be
claimed at any Prize Payout Office within WCLCs region. Government issued
photo identification is required. For further claim information, including
prize office locations, call 1-800-665-3313. All prizes can also be claimed by
mailing tickets to: Western Canada Lottery Corporation, Prize Payout
10th Floor, 125 Garry Street

Winnipeg, Manitoba R3C 4J1

Prizes are payable to the holder(s) whose name(s) appears on a ticket,


and identification is required when the ticket is presented for prize claim
at any Prize Payout Office. If your name, address, and daytime telephone
number are printed on the back of the ticket, another person could not
claim your prize.

Note: Print your name, address and daytime telephone number in the
Claim Form on the back of the ticket. All risks of sending tickets through the
mail remain with the player.

PLAYER TIPS: BUYING & CHECKING TICKETS

5. GET YOUR TICKET BACK: Paid winning tickets are to be torn in two

1. SIGN IT: Print or legibly sign your name on your tickets as soon as

possible after purchase. This can be helpful if your tickets are lost, and
Retailers cannot check or validate tickets until your name is on it.
2. CHECK IT: Always check your ticket(s) against the winning numbers
after the draw, or for SCRATCH N WIN tickets, review the play
instructions on the back. You can also use a Ticket Checker to
confirm the status (winning or non-winning) of all tickets including
SCRATCH N WIN - prior to having the Retailer validate them.
3. HEAR THE SOUND; WATCH THE MONITOR: The Customer
Display Unit (CDU) displays the prize amount of any winning ticket
checked in the terminal, or whether it is a non-winner. The terminal
makes a sound Cha-ching, Woo-hoo! when a winning ticket is
checked. If your Advance Play ticket still has draws remaining, a voice
will also instruct the retailer to give you your Replacement ticket. For
prizes over $1,000, you will hear, Please, do not tear the ticket! and
the terminal will make a different winning sound (trumpet fanfare).
4. GET YOUR VALIDATION SLIP: A Validation Slip is generated when
your ticket is checked through the ticket terminal, and it indicates the
status of your ticket and any prize amount won. You can also compare
the Validation Slip to the ticket number to ensure they match.

Holders of winning tickets must claim their prize prior to the expiry
date printed on the back or front of the ticket.

and given back to you along with the prize. All other tickets nonwinning or eligible for prizes the Retailer does not pay are to be
returned to you in one piece.
If you have any concerns about the awarding of a prize, you have the
right to refuse payment and take your intact ticket back. You can then
call 1-800-665-3313 for further instructions.

Other than putting your name on the front, and your name, address
and daytime phone number in the Claim Form on the back, dont
write or mark anything else on the front or back of the tickets. If you
win a prize that must be claimed from a Prize Office, any additional
markings must be investigated and may delay payment.
Always complete your Selection Slip in pencil. Using ink can damage
the Ticket Terminal and it may not be able to read your Selection Slip.
When buying your lottery tickets, check before
leaving the store to ensure you have all the tickets
you paid for, and that they are correct. Once
the player has left the point of purchase, WCLC
considers the transaction complete.

IN THE KNOW

The original winning ticket must be presented to claim a prize.

FREQUENTLY ASKED
QUESTIONS

43

WILL TICKETS PRESENTED AT A PRIZE OFFICE BE


TORN AND RETURNED?

You should always receive the Validation Slip that shows the winning
prize amount, if any. If your ticket is a non-winner, or if it is eligible for a
prize the Retailer cannot pay, you should also receive the original ticket
back, in one piece.

No, tickets paid at Prize Offices must be kept on file at WCLC for a minimum
of seven years.

If the ticket is worth $10,000 or more, the terminal will freeze


temporarily, additional information will appear on the monitor that
faces you, and the Retailer will call WCLC to register your win and
provide you with additional claim instructions.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF A RETAILER DOESNT


RETURN MY TICKET?
You should ask for the ticket to be returned to you. Any questions or
concerns regarding prize payment and validation procedures followed at
retail should be directed to the WCLC toll-free number, 1-800-665-3313,
provided on all tickets.

WHEN DO LOTTERY TICKETS EXPIRE?


Tickets for draw games such as LOTTO 6/49, LOTTO MAX, WESTERN 649,
WESTERN MAX, PICK 3 and EXTRA expire one year from the draw date
on which the prize was won.
KENO tickets expire after 180 days, and SPORT SELECT tickets expire 90
days after the last selected game was played. The expiry date is printed on
the front of KENO and SPORT SELECT tickets.
All SCRATCH N WIN tickets have an expiry date printed on the back of the
ticket and these dates are listed in our regional Luck publications.
Once a ticket has expired, no prize can be paid.

SHOULD I CHECK MY TICKETS AFTER THE DRAW,


OR SHOULD I CHECK THEM THROUGH THE
TICKET TERMINAL?
You should always take responsibility for your tickets and check the
tickets yourself to see if they have won a prize. The official winning
numbers and prize amounts are available in flipper display units at
retail, and winning numbers are also published on wclc.com, in Luck
magazine and by assorted media outlets. It doesnt take long to check your
selection(s), and this ensures that you will know if you are entitled to a
prize, and the value of that prize.
Ticket Checkers are also available for your convenience. They allow you to
check all tickets, including SCRATCH N WIN.
Ticket Checkers display the value of any cash prize won and indicate if
Free Plays or merchandise prizes have been won.

44

CAN RETAILERS CHECK TICKETS FROM OTHER


REGIONS?
No. There are five lottery regions in Canada, and each has its own
computer system that records lottery purchases in its region. Tickets that
are not purchased in the Prairies and the North are not registered in the
WCLC computer system and therefore must be cashed by the jurisdiction
responsible for the sale.
To claim a prize on a ticket from another jurisdiction, you must mail your
ticket to the address shown on the back of the ticket. Make sure your name
and return address are printed in the Claim Form on the back of the ticket.

WHAT HAPPENS TO UNCLAIMED PRIZES?

WHAT IS A PARI-MUTUEL SHARE?

Unclaimed prizes on national games are returned to players through


guaranteed Jackpots and Bonus draws. Unclaimed prizes on regional
games are used to enhance existing prize structures, or are returned to
member provinces and territories as revenue.

A pari-mutuel share is a calculation where the total monies allocated to a


prize category are divided by the total number of winners in that category.

WHAT IS A GROUP BUYING AGREEMENT?

HOW ARE REGIONAL DRAWS CONDUCTED?

Group Buying Agreements (GBAs) are available as a convenience for


groups who participate in lottery games including groups who play by
Subscription, and they may be required when a group claims a prize. The
GBA should include: the groups trustee, the type of game, the draw date,
the winning tickets Control Number, and each members name, address,
telephone number, share and signature. It does not have to be completed
before a notary public or any other legal representative.

More than 850 draws are conducted each year for Western
Canada Lottery Corporations (WCLC) four regional games
WESTERN 649, WESTERN MAX, EXTRA and PICK 3. These
draws are held at WCLCs Head Office in Winnipeg and are
conducted on stand-alone computerized draw machines.

Copies of the GBA are available free of charge at lottery Retail locations. A
printable electronic copy is available on our website, wclc.com.
Informal lottery groups (co-workers, friends, neighbours) who play
together on an occasional basis, should ensure they have a common
understanding about the groups membership when participating in any
particular draw.
A new GBA should be completed whenever there is a change in a group.

Retail commissions

Examples of games that offer pari-mutuel prizes are LOTTO 6/49,


LOTTO MAX and POOLS.

As with the national games, stringent controls and security


measures are in place for each regional game draw. Two
computerized draw machines are available for each draw,
and they are located in a secure location that is monitored by
video surveillance 24 hours a day. An auditor, who
oversees the draw, selects which draw machine is to be used
for any given draw. Security personnel attend and conduct each
draw, and all draws are videotaped using an automated time-date stamp.
The computerized draw machines Random Number Generators were
initially tested by two independent laboratories to ensure the randomness
of their number selection. Draw software was also tested independently
and certified as accurate. Independent testing of randomness and
software is mandatory when regional games are added or removed, or
significant changes are made to existing games.

IN THE KNOW

Of every dollar spent on tickets for all Lottery games, approximately


52.1 percent goes back to players in the form of prizes. Lottery retail
commissions are approximately 7.0 percent of sales. Western Canada
Lottery Corporation operating expenses are approximately 6.8 percent
of sales, with ticket printing accounting for an additional 1.0 percent. The

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

47

LOTTO 6/49 draws and LOTTO MAX main draws are made using
ball-draw machines. The 49 balls are placed in numerical order in the
ball rack of the draw machine. The balls are released into a drum, which is
spun for a minimum of 5 seconds before a button is pressed to release the
first ball.
For LOTTO 6/49 draws, seven balls (six main numbers and one Bonus
number) are drawn. Eight balls (seven main numbers and one Bonus
number) are drawn for LOTTO MAX. One by one, each ball drops into
the trap at the bottom of the drum, and an electric eye prompts its
release into a chute.

Stringent controls are also in place with respect to draw machines and
draw balls. Draw machines are kept in a secure area which is monitored
at all times, and draw balls are kept in cases that are locked and sealed.
These balls are used for every draw and undergo monthly testing to
ensure that each ball meets strict requirements. If a ball does not meet
these requirements, the entire set of balls is replaced.
Players can watch the most recent LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX draws at
wclc.com.

The additional draws for MAXMILLIONS on LOTTO MAX, and Guaranteed


Prize Draws on LOTTO 6/49, take place using computerized draws.

ARE THERE ANY LIMITS TO HOW MUCH I CAN


SPEND ON LOTTERY GAMES?

HOW DO I GET ENTERED IN THE LOTTO 6/49


$1 MILLION GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW?

Yes. On SPORT SELECT, the maximum amount an individual can wager


on any SPORT SELECT product per day at any Retail location is $250. For
Combo Play, the maximum daily wager per product per day per retail
location is $420.

For every $3 LOTTO 6/49 selection you purchase, or for every Free Play
issued, you will automatically receive an entry for the Guaranteed Prize
Draw. Tickets with multiple LOTTO 6/49 selections will have multiple
Guaranteed Prize Draw selections. The $1 Million Guaranteed Prize
selection is drawn separately from the main LOTTO 6/49 draw.

There is also a $1,000 transaction limit on all lottery tickets. Some Advance
Play and multiple ticket options are no longer available on draw-based
tickets, including Combination Play. This limit is per terminal transaction,
but does not limit how much can be purchased. For example, a 9-Number
LOTTO 6/49 Combination is not available for four Advance Play draws,
because the transaction would exceed the $1,000 limit ($252 x 4 = 1,008).
In order to process the ticket, the player could have a 9-Number
Combination ticket for a maximum of three draws. However, a retailer
could process a number of tickets totaling more than $1,000 for a customer,
provided no one transaction exceeded that $1,000 limit on its own.

IN THE KNOW

LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX draws are conducted by Interprovincial


Lottery Corporation (ILC) on behalf of the five lottery regions in Canada.
About one hour after the game shutdown, the draws commence.

Strict controls and security measures are in place for every draw. All draws
are videotaped and an external auditor, an external trust officer and a
draw supervisor are present at each draw. The external auditor witnesses
the draw and officially records the winning numbers. The trust officer is
responsible for the security of the draw, which includes the loading of the
required balls/numbers into the draw machine, and the draw supervisor
ensures that all draw procedures are followed.

CAN THERE BE TWO TICKETS WITH THE SAME


GUARANTEED PRIZE DRAW SELECTION?
No, Guaranteed Prize Draw selections are unique. No two tickets will share
the same number. We will draw one winning selection only from those
issued to guarantee there is a winning ticket for each draw.
