Other ways to play
Loto-Québec offers a variety of ways to play lotteries.
There are three ways to play as a group:
1. With Online Group
You may now play Lotto Max, Québec Max, Lotto 6/49, Québec 49 and Extra online or on your mobile using the Lotteries application. You may join an existing group or create your own and share it with your friends to join you (or your group).
For more information, see the How to play as a group page.
2. With Formule groupe at a retailer
To play using Formule groupe, you may join a group organized by a retailer or a consumer, or create your own group. To join a group organized by a retailer, ask the retailer directly.
To create a group, you may fill out a selection slip and choose your numbers or opt for Quick Picks. Formule groupe allows for 2 to 20 plays, and the group must purchase at least one play per group member. A group may play one draw at a time, i.e. the next draw of the game(s) selected.
|Games||Cost of each play (share):|
|Lotto Max||$5 for three 7-number selections|
|Québec Max||$2 for three 7-number selections|
|Lotto Max + Québec Max||$7 for the same three 7-number selections participating in both the Lotto Max and Québec Max draws of a same date.|
|Lotto 6/49||$3 for one 6-number selection and one “Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection”, representing a computer-generated 10-digit number.|
|Québec 49||$1 for one 6-number selection|
|Lotto 6/49 + Québec 49||$4 for one 6-number selection and one “Guaranteed Prize Draw Selection”, representing a computer-generated 10-digit number. |
In this case, the same 6-number selection participates in both the Lotto 6/49 and Québec 49 draws of a same date.
Extra may also be played. Ask the retailer for the number of Extra numbers your group can play.
When a group is created, the terminal issues a Création de groupe coupon. The coupon is necessary if the person responsible for the group wishes to replay his group.
With Formule groupe, each participant receives a group ticket that allows him to check whether his is a winning ticket using a self-service lottery ticket checker, or have his ticket validated and claim his share of a prize, if any.
In the case of a valid winning ticket, the value of the prize associated to this ticket is calculated in accordance with the number of shares indicated on it. Note that free plays won (applicable to Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49 only) are automatically issued for the draw following the one which they were won. Each group member's share of a free play is equal to that indicated on his/her winning group ticket.
Formule groupe may be played in combinations.
The Replay option is available with Formule groupe with a Création de groupe coupon.
3. With a group purchase agreement
In the event you wish to create a group with more than 20 shares or purchase lotteries not available with Formule groupe, we suggest you proceed as follows.
All group members must be 18 years or older.
The person responsible for the group should endorse the ticket with the mention "as a group",” photocopy the ticket, remit a copy to each member, and write up a group agreement indicating the following information necessary to claim a prize:
- The name of the person responsible for the group
- The names and contact information, including postal code and telephone number, of each group member.
- Each person's share
- The name of the lottery product(s) purchased
- The number(s) of the ticket(s) purchased
- The date of each draw
The group agreement must be dated and signed by each member. We suggest that you give a photocopy of the agreement to each of them.
Loto-Québec assumes no responsibility with respect to the accuracy or the use of information at any time contained in any group agreement. Loto-Québec cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Furthermore, Loto-Québec assumes no responsibility with respect to the sharing of a prize by the person responsible for the group, if that person has been designated by the group members to receive the payment. Note that only the original ticket may be presented to a retailer for payment.

You may purchase your Forfait quotidien at your retailer and select your numbers by filling out a selection slip or opt for Quick Picks (selections randomly generated by Loto-Québec’s computer).
The Replay option is available with Forfait quotidien.
With the Replay option, you may replay the same selections for upcoming draws when you validate your ticket at a Loto-Québec retailer. That way, you don’t need to keep your selection slip or to fill out another every time you wish to replay your selection.
With the Replay option, all tickets of the lotteries offering this option may be replayed. Therefore, they contain the same selections and the same Extra numbers as the original ticket. However, for Lotto 6/49, the Guaranteed Price Draw Selections cannot be replayed; you will therefore receive new selection(s) generated by computer.
In the event the Extra number is non-participating on the original ticket, it may be activated on a replayed ticket. A ticket may be replayed within 30 days of the date of the last draw, and the number of draws for which the replayed ticket is valid may be changed.
The Replay option is available with Formule groupe. To replay a Formule groupe ticket, you must present the Création de groupe coupon issued by the retailer to the person responsible for the group when the group was created.
Combination slips enable the consumer to easily and quickly play several selections at once. Depending on how many numbers you select for a game, the computer creates all possible selections with those numbers. Consequently, you could win several prizes at once.
To play with a combination slip, you need to go to a retailer and pick up a combination slip for the game you wish to play.
Combination slips are available for:
