As is well known lotto 649 results are drawn every Wednesday and Saturday and you have a chance to win the jackpot if you have played.

The lotto 649 game which is administered by the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation is in fact a conglomeration of five regional and provincial lottery corporations in Canada. Each corporation also operates two regional games in addition to the 649 game. This game is called as the “spiel” game. It is also called as Tag, Encore, or Extra.
The regional or provincial corporation adds a six or seven digit number to the ticket on an additional payment of $1. The prizes offered for this additional game may vary from $100,000 to $1,000,000. The numbers for extra are not determined by you but by the governing regional corporation. However, you are free to choose the 1 – 49 numbers for the main draw of the game which make you eligible to win the mega jackpot on offer.
When the 649 results are drawn and you do not match 6/6, 5/6+, 5/6, 4/6, 3/6, 2/6, 2/6+ but if the extra numbers on your ticket match the extra numbers drawn you automatically become eligible for the $100,000 prize.
As the name suggests lotto 649 extra enables you to win some extra money, so you have two more chances of making huge amounts of money if you pay that additional dollar.
