One of the greatest joys is getting something for free, including free lottery tickets. The Lottario game, available to play only in Ontario, Canada, offers this and it’s called Early Bird.
Here’s how it works. Lottario costs $1 to play and offers jackpots that start at $250,000 and grow until someone wins it. The odds of winning the jackpot per play are approximately 1-in-4-million. The game odds are, relatively, good and the prizes are decent, which makes it a good game on its own. But, you also get something for free, depending on when you buy the ticket.
Lottario draws happen once per week, every Saturday evening. If you purchase your Lottario ticket prior to midnight on Friday night, you get a bonus set of numbers to play a game called Early Bird. That, in itself, is a free lottery ticket because you don’t get it if you purchase the ticket on the Saturday, hence the name of the game.
The Early Bird numbers are a set of 4 separate numbers and you have to match them all to win the prize. The prize for matching all 4 numbers is usually between $400 and $600, depending on ticket sales and number of winners. This may not seem like such a great prize for a lottery game, but it really is when you consider the cost of the ticket – Free!
The odds of winning the Early Bird prize are approximately 1-in-5,000. So, if you live in Ontario, don’t forget to buy your lottario tickets prior to Saturday or you’ll miss out on the free lottery ticket!
