How to play

  • You may play online, using the mobile app, or at a Loto-Québec retailer.
  • Lotto 😀 can only be played using Quick Pick (selection randomly generated by the Loto-Québec computer).
  • Each selection (i.e. a number composed of 8 digits from 1 to 6) costs $2 or $5 and allows you to participate in a Quick Play and in one draw.
  • Quick Play is a game that is randomly generated by the Loto-Québec computer. The Quick Play animation is composed of a “Dé rouge” (one red dice) and of “Vos dés” (8 white dice). Each dice has 6 sides. When your transaction is being processed, the “Dé rouge” will be shown on the screen, followed by “Vos dés.” In the event that at least 2 of “Vos dés” are identical in value to the “Dé rouge,” you win the corresponding prize as indicated in the applicable prize structure.
  • Each draw is conducted as follows: Loto-Québec conducts 8 random draws, each among all digits from 1 to 6, to form in order the winning number. This number is decomposable in both directions (see the Prize structures and odds of winning).
  • You must pay before Quick Play starts. It is impossible to cancel a Lotto 😀 ticket.
  • Lotto 😀 is governed by the By-law respecting forecast contests and numbers games , published in the Gazette officielle du Québec , which includes limitations of liability.

Bank a Million

You bank $1,000,000; we pay the taxes!

How does winning $1 million and having the Lottery pay the taxes sound? It could happen if you win Bank a Million, which offers chances to win unbelievable cash prizes every Wednesday and Saturday.

Bank a Million is different from other jackpot games. Not only will the Virginia Lottery pay your taxes, but the Bonus Ball also gives you more chances to win.

How to play Bank a Million

You have options when you play Bank a Million. Choose your own numbers on a playslip by picking six different numbers from 1 through 40. The Bonus Ball is not selected by the player but is drawn each draw.

You decide how much to wager and what prize to try to win. The total play must add up to $2, but you can determine your wager. For example, choose two plays at $1 each, which gives you two chances to win $500,000; four plays at 50¢ each gives you four chances to win $250,000. There are plenty of options for you to win up to $1 million. Click for a closer view of the playslip.

Here’s more info about how to play Bank a Million:

  • You also can use Easy Pick and let the computer choose your numbers.
  • Use a combination of these play methods — pick some of your favorite numbers, and let the computer fill in the rest.
  • Each ticket costs $2.
  • Bank a Million draws are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 11 p.m.

Play options

It’s always great to have options, and we have a few!

  • Want to play the same numbers for more than one draw on a single ticket? A Multi-Draw ticket lets you play up to 26 consecutive draw on one ticket. Please keep in mind that the ticket price increases for each draw you add.
  • Thinking ahead to a special date? You can buy a ticket for one future draw date. It’s called a Future draw. Mark your playslip, and let the clerk know which future draw date you have in mind.
  • Love those numbers so much you want them on more than one ticket? You can Repeat your play and have the same numbers printed on more than one ticket up to 20 times.
  • Tell your clerk which option you want when you present your playslip. Keep in mind that the ticket price will increase based on the number of Bank a Million game draws you select.

Two chances to win per week

There are two chances to win $1 million each week. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you play Bank a Million:

  • We stop selling Bank a Million tickets at 10:45 p.m. on draw nights — so get your tickets early!
  • Virginia’s Bank a Million tickets can be canceled by the retailer, but tickets cannot be canceled at the Game Machine! We recommend using a playslip to ensure that your numbers are correct.
  • When using Optional Plays, make sure you tell your clerk which option(s) you prefer.
  • Any winning tickets bought in Virginia must be redeemed in Virginia.

*A match-six $2 wager top prize yields $1 million take home after required federal and state tax withholdings are deducted. A $1 wager yields $500,000, and a 50¢ wager yields $250,000. Withholdings are based on 2015 IRS rates and are subject to change.

Note: Play Your Way allows you to control your wager and choose which top prize you want to win – $1,000,000, $500,000 or $250,000. You can choose to wager $2 on one set of numbers, $1 on two sets of numbers or 50¢ on four sets of numbers. No split bets are allowed. In other words, you can’t wager $1 on one set of numbers and then 50¢ on two other sets of numbers. Each wager amount must total $2.

We draw six balls between 1 and 40. The seventh ball, the Bonus Ball, gets drawn even though you don’t select it.

After the draw, check to see if the Bonus Ball number that we’ve drawn appears within the set of six numbers on your ticket. If it does, you’ve matched the Bonus Ball! Check the prize chart to see how much you may have won.
