BC 50/50 Introduced Additional Draws in November

November was a treat for lottery enthusiasts in British Columbia, with additional draws accompanying their favourite BC 50/50 lottery tickets.

The month of November was a fun one for the British Columbia lottery fans, with the launch of a promotion on 6 November that allowed more players to win big.  Players who had not done so had time until 28 November to benefit from the BC 50/50 November Super Jackpot.

Lottery Ticket Sales Witness a Spike

27 and 28 November saw the last two additional draws, which have been taking place at 6 pm every Friday and Saturday of the month.  As a result of the closure of land-based casinos, the sale of lottery tickets in the province has seen an upsurge over the past couple of months.  Lottery tickets have remained one of the most accessible and safest gambling products still available on the market, purchasable through various retail locations selling these. 

Attractive Prizes Up for Grabs

As a result of the November promotion, lottery players have purchased a larger number than usual of BC 50/50 tickets.  The jackpots that accompanied the two weekly draws have been sizeable.  The last draws carried an attractive minimum prize of CA$7,500 for the Friday draw, which grew to a minimum award of CA$10,000 on Saturday.

The players who managed to take part in the bonus draws can consider themselves lucky, since no further bonus rounds have been planned past 28 November.  The tickets for these draws cost CA$1 for a single pick, or value picks made up of six picks for CA$5 or 15 picks for CA$10.
