Atlantic Canada Lottery Scratch-Offs

Known as Scratch ‘N Win by the Atlantic Lottery, Scratch-Offs have multiple prizes, with jackpots typically being proportional to the ticket price. Atlantic Lottery scratch-offs range in price fromCAD 1.00 to CAD 30, with jackpots ranging from CAD 25 to CAD 3 million!

The odds of winning a prize range from 1 in 3.5 for the bigger jackpot scratch-offs, to 1 in 8 for lower-value prizes. Unfortunately, the Atlantic Lottery doesn’t publicise the odds for individual prizes on its scratch-offs.

The Atlantic Lottery immediately removes larger jackpot games as soon as all jackpots have been claimed; however, smaller jackpots are left on sale to give players the opportunity to win secondary prizes and to pay out as much of the prize pool as possible.

As with regular lottery games, some scratch-offs offer regular payouts rather than lump-sum wins.

Further information about scratch-offs is available on the official Atlantic Lottery website .
