Western Canada (WC) Lottery Results and Latest Winning Numbers

Western Canada Lottery Corporation Information

A non-profit organization that was first launched in 1974, the Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) is home to some of the largest jackpots you will find in Canada.

Despite its popularity however, the WCLC lacks some of the more modern features you’ll find in other major lotteries. Mobile play is not an option, and online ticket purchases are available only in Manitoba through PlayNow.com.

List of Games

Western Max

Win up to $2 million in Western Max. Match 7 numbers from 1 to 50 to take home the grand prize. Nine prize tiers and pretty decent overall odds of winning make this game one of our favorites.

Western Max has drawings every Tuesday and Friday evening.

Western 649

Western 649 also has a $2 million jackpot. The overall odds of winning in this game are one the best we’ve seen, about 1 in 6.6! To play, pick 6 numbers from 1 to 49.

Western Max has drawings every Wednesday and Saturday evening.

Pick Games

Pick 2, Pick 3, Pick 4 – Play them all in Western Canada. Depending on how many numbers you play, you can win payouts of $99, $500, or $5,000.

Pick games have daily drawings at 7:30 PM Pacific Time (PT).

Poker Lotto

Get three ways to win with Poker Lotto. When you buy a ticket, a random 5-card Poker hand is printed on your ticket. If you form a winning Poker hand, you can win up to $10,000. Your ticket also enters you into a nightly drawing where you can win up to $100,000 more. If you go ALL IN, you can win even more prizes.
