BC/49 Prize Table

There is a fixed jackpot of $2 million which does not roll over in case there is no jackpot winner. However, if more than one ticket holder wins the jackpot, the prize will be shared equally. The best thing about the BC 49 lottery is that there is a guaranteed prize amount for each tier. For example, up to six players are able to win $75,000 for matching five numbers plus the Bonus Ball. However, if there are more than six winners, the players will share the total prize pool of $450,000. Besides winning the jackpot, BC 49 lucky winners can win prizes at an additional five tiers, all of which can be found below:
