YLotto Weekly Toonie Draw

The YLotto Weekly Toonie Draw is a 50/50 lottery draw that takes place every week on Thursdays at 8am. After a participant signs up, they can choose how many weeks they would like to pay ($2 a week or pay for the future weeks in advance). To be considered for the 50/50 draw of the week, the participant must pay $2 for the current week because if their number is drawn but they haven’t paid for that week, they will not be eligible for the 50/50 prize.

You can pay for your YLotto Toonie Number(s) at any of our locations listed.


If paying at one of these establishments, the participant has until Wednesday at noon to pay as these boxes get emptied Wednesday afternoon. You can also have until Wednesday at 5pm to pay at our Main Office’s box located at the YMCA of CB, 399 Charlotte Street, Sydney, NS. Over the phone payment is also an option (Visa or Mastercard).

We accept cash in our boxes. If paying at our office, we accept debit, Visa, or Mastercard. Over the phone payment is also an option (Visa or Mastercard).
