If you’re a Canadian with an eye on which international lottery you should play, then read on. We’re going to take out some of the mystery of which one you should play by outlining the lottery that is best suited to each province. Play your home area, and hope to win!
British Columbia - Mega Millions
B.C is the second biggest financial hub in Canada after Ontario.
This is why we chose the second most popular international lottery in the world… the Mega Millions. A lot of people do not think about this game as a first choice, but maybe it should be.
Alberta - Oz Powerball
Why would we pair these two together? Strange as it may sound a lot of Aussie’s head to the Rockies in Alberta during the winter to enjoy some world-class skiing and exciting outdoor activities.
If you find yourself in a bar in Banff, you will definitely find a couple of Australians to party with. As such, locals to this province should be looking at the Oz Powerball.
Saskatchewan - Mega Sena
There are some pretty grand prairies and marshlands in Brazil, just as there are in Saskatchewan.
Honour your twin land by playing the Mega Sena.
Manitoba - EuroJackpot
There’s a lot of historical cultural diversity in Manitoba, just as there is in Europe. You would think that this cathedral is in Europe somewhere, maybe Germany? maybe France? You would be wrong... it is in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
So what lottery would make more sense than the EuroJackpot, the lottery that represents all the different European cultures?
Ontario - Powerball
Ontario is the financial hub of Canada -- and indeed is one of the biggest in North America.
Head for the money by playing the Powerball.
Quebec - France Loto
With a name like Quebec and castles that are fit for Kings, where they make the most delicious fry dish in the world called Poutine, where they drink artisan coffee and pronounce the letter “r” with a romantic roll of the tongue.
Quebec is Canada’s most culturally French province, so this is really an obvious choice.
Newfoundland - elGordo
Newfoundland might not be as Spanish as Quebec is French, but there’s still a significant number of Spanish heritage living here.
That means there’s only one lottery you’ll want to play: Spain’s El Gordo.
New Brunswick - Superenalotto
New Brunswick might be more understated than other provinces in Canada, but it still packs a powerful punch.
The Superenalotto is the same: it’s not as famous as others on this list, but there are still some huge jackpots to win.
Yukon Territory - SuperEnaMax
The Yukon Territory might be huge, but it’s not all that populated -- just 35,000 people live there -- and thus few people even know it’s there.
The same can be said of the SuperEnaMax, which also creeps under the radar. It’s there, and like the Yukon, it’s awesome!
Northwest Territories - Lotto 6Aus49
People in Northwest Territories should look to other Northwest countries, such as Germany, which hosts the Lotto 6Aus49.
Nunavut - La Primitiva
Nunavut, where people have lived for 4000 years, is historically Canada’s most primitive province.
Honour it by playing La Primitiva, which is the Spanish word for primitive.
Nova Scotia - EuroMillions
Parts of Nova Scotia have changed hands many times over the years. At various times, it has been Portugese, British, and French, giving is a distinctly European culture.
As such, it makes sense that people who live in this part of the country will play the EuroMillions.
Prince Edward Island - UK Lottery
OK, if a place is called Prince Edward Island, you’re not going to look to Spain, France, or Brazil for your lottery game, are you?
It’s all in the name, and there’s only lottery it can be: the UK Lottery. It would be treasonous (we imagine) to play any other.
