To take part, it must be requested on the game slip whilst purchasing your main lotto. Extra has a life-changing CAD 1 Million jackpot and in order to win your 7 numbers must match those drawn that day in the correct order.
As mentioned previously, Extra is always coupled with another lottery and when selected, an additional 7 digit number is generated and will appear below the main Lotto draw.
If you're not lucky enough to win the jackpot, there are smaller prizes for matching just the last digit and the first or last 2 - 6 digits.
Below are the latest results of Extra in Quebec:

Playing the lottery can be a fun and exciting way to try to win some extra money. However, it is important to play responsibly so that you don't end up losing more money than you intended. Here are a few tips for playing the lottery responsibly:
Only play if you can afford to lose the money.
Don't spend more than you can afford on tickets.
Only buy tickets if you're going to be able to check your numbers regularly.
Make sure you know the odds of winning before playing.
You need to match all 7 digits in order to win the jackpot. However, there are smaller prizes for matching 6, 5, 4, 3 or 2 digits and even only 1 last digit.
Extra costs CAD 1.00 per play. You can purchase up to 10 plays per ticket (except in the case of Quick Plays).
