One of the most popular lotteries in Canada is Lotto 649. This lotto is available for sale across Canada and each ticket costs $3 and has one set of numbers from 1 to 49 for the Main Jackpot Draw and a second, 10-digit set of numbers for the $1-million guaranteed prize draw. You can also play multiple Lotto 649 selections on one ticket or play Lotto 649 by Quick Pick or Selection Slip.
