What is a bonus number?


A bonus number allows a lottery to add additional secondary prize categories to give players more opportunities to win prizes. Players do not have the option to select which bonus number they’d like to play. Bonus numbers are drawn last from the same drum as the main numbers.

How do bonus numbers work?

Say the jackpot winning numbers are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and the bonus ball is 6. The player, or players, who correctly matched all five main numbers will win the jackpot. However, if a player selected 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 they’ll have matched four out of five main numbers, plus the bonus ball, and will be eligible for a 4+1 prize worth more than simply matching four out of five numbers.

When you check lottery results on the site, the bonus number will appear in blue at the top of the screen and as X+1 in the prize breakdown.


How do I change my subscription numbers?


To change your subscription’s numbers, please go to the Play form of the specific lottery in question, select your new favourite numbers, and click the floppy disk icon on the right side of the My Lucky Numbers button to save them.

Make sure you're using Lucky Numbers for your subscription by following these steps: Go to My Account, click on Subscriptions, go to the subscription you wish to use Lucky Numbers for, and make sure that "From Lucky Numbers" is selected in the dropdown box.
