British Columbia Lotteries

BCLC owns and manages all the lottery equipment at retail locations where tickets are purchased. Lottery products and monthly ticket subscriptions are offered on a regulated gambling site, PlayNow. The Lotto app allows players to buy tickets online and scan paper tickets to see if they’ve won.

In 1969, an amendment was made to the Criminal Code that allowed provinces to conduct "lottery schemes." Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia banded together to form lotteries in Western Canada under the jurisdiction of the Western Canada Lottery Foundation. The first lottery sale in British Columbia was in August 1974.

In 1985, British Columbia began its own separate lottery, the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC). The lottery offers an array of games, an online sports lottery and limited online sports betting. Sports betting is limited to parlay bets.

In 2011, the BCLC began offering peer-to-peer online poker in partnership with Loto-Québec.
