If you’ve been thinking about getting into the Ontario Lottery game but aren’t sure when the right time is for you, this weekend could be your time as things heat up.
According to OLG, Lottario increases Saturday’s jackpot to a whopping $2,540,000making it the highest in over three years.
The lottery game, which only sells tickets in the province, has been around for more than four decades and costs residents just $1 to play.
Anyone who buys tickets by 11:59 p.m. on Friday also becomes eligible for the weekly $50,000 early bird draw.
“Each $1 game comes with two sets of numbers, and the draws take place every Saturday,” reads an excerpt from the press release.
Anyone interested in playing can purchase tickets at OLG retailers or purchase them online through the OLG website.
The draw will take place on the evening of Saturday March 12, 2022.
If you’re still skeptical, it’s worth noting that there have been quite a few Lottario winners recently.
For example, Mississauga resident Frank Cosentino won $100,000 after matching the last six Encore numbers out of seven in the Lottario draw on October 23, 2021.
The lottery player actually won three times with the same ticket, scoring an additional $6 on his Lottario play and Encore selection.
Meanwhile, Oshawa resident Tamara Geldart won $642,002.90 in August. When she found out she had won big, she started crying.
