Maintenance notice

=== SYSTEM UPDATE ===

A system maintenance will take place between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Tuesday, July 7. We apologize for this inconvenience.

 

No. Having a credit card makes the identity confirmation process faster, but you can also confirm your identity by uploading a copy of other pieces of government-issued photo ID (e.g. your driver's licence or passport).

You can send us your ID documents using lotoquebec.com’s upload feature. You can access the platform one of two ways:

- Once you’ve created your profile (after having duly completed the three preliminary steps and indicated your profession)

OR

- By clicking on the My Espacejeux icon, then on ID Confirmation. This option will remain active until you’ve sent in your ID documents. If this option is no longer active, then you can no longer upload any ID documents.

Follow these steps to upload your ID documents:

Step 1
Click on the Pieces of ID tab.

Make sure to read the information provided. You must upload a document for each of the two required categories: a document with your name and date of birth, and a document with your name and address.

Once you’ve chosen the documents that you want to upload, please take a clear picture of each one with your smartphone or tablet, or by scanning them.

Next, save your documents on your computer and rename them, if necessary. Be sure to save your documents under an accepted file extension. We accept documents with the following file extensions: .pdf, .jpg, .png, .jpeg and .pjpeg.

Click on Upload My Documents at the bottom of the page.

Step 2
Click on Select a file.

Important: Please note that the steps to follow differ depending on whether you’re uploading the documents from your computer or from your smartphone or tablet. The following screenshots apply only to uploads done by computer.

Next, find where you stored your documents on your computer. Select the first document, make sure that it has the right file extension, and click Open.

If the document doesn’t have the right file extension, a message will pop up indicating that the file could not be uploaded. A reminder that we accept documents with the following file extensions: .pdf, .jpg, .png, .jpeg and .pjpeg.

Step 3
Your document will appear on the left side of the screen, as shown below. To add your second document, click Select a file again.

Select the document, make sure that it has the right file extension, and click Open.

Step 4
Make sure that the documents you selected are the right ones. If so, click on Send to submit your documents. If not, delete one or both documents by clicking on the “X” and repeat Steps 2, 3 and 4 as needed.

You haven’t lost any money! It may be that the amount of money you deposited exceeds your weekly deposit limit. If it does, please note that the surplus will be redeposited in your bank account. Make sure that your banking information is saved in your Espacejeux account. Otherwise, check out the How do I enter my banking information in order to make a withdrawal question for information on what to do.

For a better understanding, consider this example:

  • Today is Thursday. The weekly deposit limit is valid from Sunday at midnight to the following Saturday at 11:59 p.m.
  • On Thursday, you deposit $25 in your Espacejeux account. Your weekly deposit limit is set to $40.
  • You log in to your Espacejeux account and see that only $20 has been posted to your account, rather than $25.
  • You start to worry that, somehow, you lost $5.
  • You check your Espacejeux account again and remember that you made a $20 deposit a few days prior, i.e. this past Sunday.
  • You then realize that you tried to deposit $45 in one week, which is $5 above your weekly limit.
  • The $5 surplus will be redeposited in your bank account.

Follow these steps to enter your banking information.

Please have a sample cheque for your bank account ready.

Step 1

Because the deposit will only appear in your bank account in the next 48 business hours, we ask that you wait 1 or 2 days before checking whether the money was deposited.

Click on Continue.

Step 4

Then click on Submit.

Your banking information is now saved.

Click on Continue.

To change your banking information, please contact our Customer service.

You can deposit a minimum of $20. If you want to deposit less than $20, you can purchase an Argent Web ticket at one of our lottery retail outlets; they are sold in $10 increments.

Whenever you place a bet, the system automatically looks first at your Free Bet balance, and if your balance is insufficient, takes the difference from your Espacejeux account.

To see which games accept free bets, go to My Promotions in your Espacejeux account.

You can set limits on the amount of time and money you spend gaming.

1. Log in to your lotoquebec.com account.

2. Click on the Espacejeux account icon, then Manage My Gaming.

3. Click on Gaming Limits.

There are three types of limit you can set:

 

Deposit limit

This is the maximum amount of money that you can deposit in your Espacejeux account every week (from Sunday to Saturday).

You were required to set a weekly deposit limit when you opened your account. However, you can change it at any time. Here’s how:

  • Enter the new amount you want to set in the provided field.

    Important:
    – You don’t have to deposit that amount every week.
    – That amount will not automatically be withdrawn from your account.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Update.

 

Time limit

This is the maximum length of time that you’re willing to play over a set period of time. This includes the time played with real money and in demo mode. How to set or change this limit:

  • Click on the box(es) that correspond to the time limits you want to set or change (daily and/or weekly and/or monthly).
  • Enter the duration in the corresponding field (the field you select will change from grey to white).
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Update.

 

Loss limit

This is the maximum amount of money that you’re willing to lose over a set period of time. How to set or change this limit:

  • Click on the box(es) that correspond to the spending limits you want to set or change (daily and/or weekly and/or monthly).
  • Enter the amount in the corresponding field (the field you select will change from grey to white).
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Update.

If you have decreased your playing time, deposit or spending limits, your request will take effect immediately. However, if you have increased your playing time or spending limits, the change will take effect 48 hours after your request is made. If you have raised your weekly deposit limit, the change will take effect after 24 hours.

Setting a deposit limit does not constitute an automatic transfer request, but rather it is a means to establish the maximum amount that you can deposit to your Espacejeux account over a 7-day period (from Sunday to Saturday).

No, a gaming timeout request is irrevocable.

Nothing can be done. Self-exclusion requests are irrevocable.

It is useful to evaluate your gaming behaviour in order to ensure that gaming remains a pastime. We have a number of available free tools that foster responsible gaming, including the test your gambling habits, and we do inform you about gaming-related risks.

The following lotteries may be purchased online: Lotto Max, Québec Max, Lotto 6/49, Québec 49, Extra, Banco (including Banco spécial), Quotidienne, Astro, Triplex, Tout ou rien, Lotto :D, Lotto Hockey, Lotto Poker, Roue de fortune Éclair, Sprinto and La Poule aux œufs d’or express. Extra is also available with some lotteries.

To buy these lotteries online, you must first have an Espacejeux account on Loto Québec’s online gaming site. To become a member, click on the Register. You will be redirected to a secure registration form on Loto-Québec’s online gaming website. Once registration is complete but before playing, you will need to deposit sufficient funds in your Espacejeux account by clicking on the Deposit link.

If you already have an Espacejeux account, you may immediately open a gaming session using your username and password. Once connected to your account, click on the Lotteries link in the menu and select the lottery you wish to buy. Make your selections and then click Buy Online to confirm your selections and conclude the transaction. If you have not already opened a gaming session, you will be prompted to do so to conclude your transaction. When the transaction is successfully concluded, your Espacejeux account will be debited in the amount of the wager and your balance will be updated accordingly.

When the total cash prize won in a single transaction is under $25,000, the amount of the prize is directly deposited in your Espacejeux account.

For cash prizes worth $25,000 or more, a customer service staff will contact winners directly to explain how to make the claim.

Prizes of less than $25,000 can be claimed by mail. Note that in light of the current situation, processing could take longer than normal. Above this amount, call 1 866 611 5686 (Monday to Friday, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm). One of our agents will explain the steps to follow.

Free plays and free selections won online are automatically issued for the following draw. You may view the free plays and selections for the next draw in the My Purchases section. You may not select or change the numbers on your free plays or selections. Please note that you cannot add Extra to a free play or free selection that has been won online. Consequently, no Extra number will be displayed for that ticket.

No. A new Extra number is randomly generated at the time of the transaction.

Yes. In order to do so, you can create a lottery group according to your own specifications and share it with your friends and co-workers so they can join. You can also join an existing group created by players with Espacejeux account. Learn more.

No. Once the transaction is concluded, it cannot be changed or cancelled.

Once you have made your selections, you may opt to go to a retailer to buy your ticket rather than conclude the transaction online. Click on Buy from a Retailer and follow the instructions to print a page with a bar code matching your selection(s). You must then present the bar code to a Loto -Québec retailer to record your selection(s) and issue your ticket. You are not required to have an Espacejeux account to use this option.

The My Purchases page displays the list of draws in which you are participating that have not yet taken place. On the evening of the draw, the note In progress in the Next draw column indicates that the draw is being conducted. Results are generally available the next morning.

The My Results section displays the list of draws in which you are participating, according to draw date starting with the most recent. For each draw, the Validation Status column indicates whether or not you have won. You may view the winning numbers and the amount of your prize, if any, by clicking on the name of the lottery. You can also sign up to receive via e-mail the results for lottery products you purchased online, for all your online purchases or only when you win. Manage your e-mail preferences on the E-mail notices page in the Lotteries section.

Use the My favourites section to save your favourite selections so you can replay them quickly and easily. Note that, if your favourites include one or several Extra numbers, you will keep the same number of Extras, but actual Extra numbers could change, as they are always randomly generated at the time of the transaction.

How do I create a favourite?

Once you have completed a transaction, save it in My favourites using the Add to Favourites button. You will see this button in the following locations:

1) When your purchase is confirmed:

2) When you click on a link to see the details of a transaction from the My purchases and My results pages:

Betting offer and odds can be updated at any time.

In the Betting Offer section, click on Sort by Hour then choose the sport you’re interested in. 

The list of available bets is sorted by their respective time limits. The first bets displayed are those whose time limit is the closest. The time limit is the latest time at which a prediction about a question can be registered. 

The Available Periods zone allows you to select the available bets by time period. Choose one of the 6 periods shown and the betting offer will automatically update. 

Please note that the offer sorted by hour is a summary that only shows the most popular types of question for the selected sport.

A link located at the right of each question provides access to the complete list of available bets for an event.

Odds are given for each prediction. The odds determine the potential win on your bet. To find out the potential winnings, you need to multiply the odds on your bet by the amount wagered (subject to the Dead Heat Rule). All predictions of a selection must be accurate in order to win.

The odds are calculated based on several factors, including the probability of the prediction being accurate and its popularity among bettors.

For example, the lower the probability is of a prediction being accurate, the higher are the odds given to it.

Since odds reflect bettor predictions, odds may vary among the various sports bet companies in the world.

Odds are made by a Loto-Québec sports bet team of experts, who rely on historical statistics of sports and sales, among other tools.

Potential winnings are the amount of your wager multiplied by each of the odds associated to your predictions (subject to the Dead Heat Rule).
(ex: 1st odds X 2nd odds X wager = Potential winnings).

At a Loto-Québec retailer, you can decide on the amount of your wager on a selection slip. This amount can be $2, $3, $4, $5, $10, $15, $20, $25, $50 or $100.

If you play online, this amount may vary from $1 to $100, to the closest dollar. You can also generate a bar code to issue and purchase a ticket from a retailer.

The prediction number is a five-digit number used to identify a possible outcome to a question and associated with a set of Mise-o-jeu odds. These odds are only available from a Loto-Québec retailer.

As an example, for a Pittsburgh vs. Montréal match, a Montréal victory prediction could have prediction number 02461 and associated odds of 1.90. If the odds change, so will the prediction number.

Also, different odds and a different prediction number would be associated to a Pittsburgh victory prediction.

You will need the appropriate prediction numbers to fill out your Mise-o-jeu selection slip that is available at your Loto-Québec retailer.

Single bet questions do not need to be combined with other questions in order to be registered as a selection. Only questions identified by an  on the web site may be played as single bets.

Due to certain aspects of the Criminal Code, not all questions may be offered as single bets.

Two types of questions can be played as single bets: those relating to more than one event and those combining two questions in one.

For example, the question “Who will win the match and by how many goals” requires a prediction on the winner of the match AND the number of goals by which the match is won.

A Mise-o-jeu+ exclusive bet, identified by  sign, is a question that is only available on the web site or the mobile app. Bar codes cannot be generated for selections that contain at least one web exclusive type of bet.

It is possible that a selection cannot be registered because the sales limit for that selection or for a given prediction has been reached.

Other prediction combinations may also not be allowed if there is a correlation between them, that is to say that predictions from a given selection are related, have an impact on one another or are contradictory.

For example, for a match Montreal vs. Boston, you could not wager on the questions "What will be the final score of the match?" and "Match winner", because if the prediction "Montreal will win 3 to 1" came to be, the prediction "Montreal wins" would necessarily occur as well. Conversely, if the prediction "Montreal will win 3 to 1" came to be, it would be impossible for the prediction "Boston wins" to occur as well.

For more details on correlations, visit the Correlations section.

SO stands for "shootout".

For questions of this type, you need to predict the outcome of an event, without any possibility of ties between teams or individuals. 

For example, in hockey, you would bet on the team you believe will win the match, after any overtime periods and shootouts if necessary.

For questions of this type, you need to predict the winning outcome of an event between the three available outcomes.

For example, for soccer, you would bet on the team that you believe will win the match, or on a tie. In this example, the match outcome is determined before any overtime periods and any shootouts.

For questions with spreads, Loto-Québec sets out in the Mise-o-jeu Betting offer a number (the spread) used to determine by how many goals (points, strokes or other) a team or individual must beat his opponent for a prediction to be accurate.

Except for golf, the favourite of an event is indicated by a negative (-) sign in front of the spread and the underdog, by a positive (+) sign.

The favourite is deemed to be the winner if he wins the event by a margin that is greater than the spread.

For example, in a match Montréal vs. Boston and where the spread attributed is 1.5 and for which Montréal is named the favourite (by a negative sign), Montréal must win by two goals or more. Furthermore, Boston is deemed to be the winner if: (1) Montréal wins the match by one goal, (2) the match is a tie, or (3) Boston wins the match.

The team or individual deemed to have won for this type of bet is thus not necessarily the winner of the event.

For questions of this type, you predict whether or not the total number of goals, points or strokes in one or several events will be greater "+" or lesser "-" than the number set by Loto-Québec and specified in the Betting offer.

For example: For the question "Total number of goals in the match" for the match Montreal vs. Toronto, Loto-Québec determines that the total number of goals will be 6.5. 

If the score at the end of the match is 5-3, the total number of goals scored is 8. The winning outcome here would have been "more than 6.5".

This type of questions covers performance of players during an event or several events. You have to predict which one of the two opposing players will have the best result.

For example: "Who will register the most strikeouts?"

Three options are available to register your selection:

You can print your selection containing your predictions and the corresponding bar code by clicking on the Print your Selection and Bar code button. The bar code will enable a Loto-Québec retailer to register your selection and issue your lottery ticket.

You have to go to a Loto-Québec retailer and present your bar code in order to have your selection registered and to receive your lottery ticket.

Fill out a Selection Slip

You can also fill out a Mise-o-jeu selection slip, available from all Loto-Québec retailers. You have to mark on the selection slip the 5-digit prediction number for each of your predictions as well as the amount of your wager and hand the slip to a retailer to register your selection and receive your lottery ticket.

With Mise-o-jeu, you can purchase your selections online. You must first have an Espacejeux account.

To open an account, click on the Register button. You will be redirected to the secure registration form of Loto-Québec's online gaming website.

Once you have completed the registration process, you will need to deposit sufficient funds to your Espacejeux account by clicking on the Deposit link before you can play.

If you already have an Espacejeux account, click on the Log in button to log on. Identify yourself by entering your Username and Password.

Once you have logged in to your account, make your selection and click on the Purchase Online button to confirm your selection and complete the transaction.

Once you have successfully completed the transaction, your Espacejeux account will be debited for the amount of your wager, and your account balance will be updated.

The bar code is an alternative to the selection slip. In the Betting offer section, you can print a selection containing your predictions and the bar code by clicking on the Print your selection and bar code button.

Remember, you must go to a Loto-Québec retailer in order to have your selection registered and to receive your lottery ticket
