It’s too late now.
The Lotto 6/49 officially went from $2 to $3 starting at 6 a.m Sunday.
Just live with it.
Ontario Lottery and Gaming says it’s not all bad news. They plan on increasing the jackpot from $3 million to $5 million, with an additional guaranteed million-dollar prize twice a week.
“There’s opportunity to create 104 more millionaires a year, which is really exciting,” OLG spokesman Dita Kuhtey said.
Every Lotto 6/49 ticket will now have an extra number.
“And basically we draw from those numbers, so someone’s going to win,” she said.
Customer Peter Colosimo, who only plays 6/49 occasionally, isn’t too happy about shelling out $3 but contends he will most likely continue dabbling in the national lottery.
“Best one to me is Lottario,” he said with a shrug Saturday, of the weekly game with slightly better odds of winning but a lower minimum jackpot.
