Canada – Home to the 649 7 lotto super.
Although lotto in its various forms has spread all around the world, the two popular variants of this fascinating game, namely super lotto 7 and lotto 649 have become ingrained into the lives of countless Canadian citizens. Here are some interesting facts about the 649 7 lotto super.
