Q:   Can I put the Gold Rush ticket in my child’s name?
A:    No –  Lottery Licence requirement is for all players to be 19 years or older.

Q:   When is the draw?
A:   The draw is every Friday at noon. Play by 9 am on Thursday at the Green Boxes or by 10 am Friday at the Club. Draw results are announced on Oldies 96.1 and posted on the website once the winner has claimed their prize.

Q:   Is the draw done from just the toonies?
A:   No. The draw is from all the numbers in the system.

Q:   How long is my number in the draw?
A:   Until you cancel the number or if you haven’t played in 12 months.

Your number is still in the draw even if it’s not paid up or “in play” If an unpaid number is the winner that person does not get the prize money, and the draw prize becomes a rollover for the next week.

Q:   What is “roll-over”?
A:    If a player did not play their toonie or pay their number that week and it is drawn, the unpaid number does not get the winnings. The prize rolls over to the next draw.

Q:   Can I play more than one number?
A:   Yes, you can have as many numbers as you’d like. Remember that a number needs to be played every week to win and is $2 a week each.

Q:   How can I pay in advance so I won’t forget to play?
A:    You can pre-pay a few ways, just let the clerk know how many weeks or how much money you would like to put on your number.

You can come into the Boys & Girls Club (BGC) at 1 Paul Harris Street to pay in person, you can pay online by sending an E-Transfer to (please include name and numbers in the memo section), or you can pre-pay by phone (506-634-2011) with your Credit Card.

Q:  How much can I pre-pay?
A:  You can pre-pay in any amount you wish, remember it’s $2 a week per number.

Example:  $8, $10, $20, $52 (6 Months) or $104 (Full year)

We just ask that you pre-pay at the Boys & Girls Club (BGC) office rather than leaving large amounts of money in a green box that only gets collected once a week.

To Pre-pay please do not leave large amounts of money in any Green Box Location.
