Atlantic 49 Review

Atlantic 49 is a lottery game offered by Atlantic Lottery along other games such as iBingo, Proline, Lotto Max, Lotto 6/49, and Pick n Click. The game is easy to play and has lots of winning opportunities that you can seize as a player. Thanks to the flexibility, you can play Atlantic 49 online as well as offline at retail.

Playing Atlantic 49 Online

Because of the digital age in which we are living, Atlantic Lottery found it easier and much more convenient to introduce the online-based play mode. The difference between playing online and offline simply lies in the fact that in one, you choose an online version of the playslip and make your choices by clicking through while in the other you have to manually pick your winning numbers.

The first step is to sign in to the website, and pick Atlantic 49. However, if Atlantic 49 is part of your Lotto 6/49 purchase, you should navigate to the Draw Menu and click on Lotto 6/49 and this will open up a play area. For every $1 of Lotto 6/49 purchase, the system will automatically generate random numbers for you using Insta Pik. On the other hand, if you are playing Atlantic 49 on its own, every $1 of purchase will give you an opportunity to select 6 numbers with a simple click of the mouse. That being said, Insta Pik is available on both ends (Lotto 6/49 and Atlantic 49 options).

When you make your Atlantic 49 selection of winning numbers, you will in addition receive a computer generated 09 digit number which is preceded by an A. This number is entered in the Guaranteed Prize Draw category of Atlantic 49. For every additional $1, you get the opportunity to add TAG numbers to your Atlantic 49 ticket. A TAG is simply defined as an add-on game which is an option available under Atlantic 49. When you click the Yes button, you can select the number of TAG plays you prefer right from the drop down menu.

In the event you are interested in purchasing a future draws, you can do so in Atlantic 49 which allows plays from 2 all the way to 10 consecutive draws. If you use Insta Pik for future draws, each ticket to be entered in each of the draws, you have chosen will come with a different set of randomly generated numbers. However, if you manually pick your numbers, they will be used for each of the subsequent plays. For your wager to be considered official, it must appear in your Transaction Detail as completed.

Playing at Retail

Just as it is when playing online, playing at retail is pretty easy because the options are the same; you can play Atlantic 49 on its own or as part of Lotto 6/49 purchase. If you decide to play as part of Lotto 6/49, all you need is to ask the retailer to give you the Lotto 6/49 selection slip otherwise you can just request for the Atlantic 49 selection slip. On the slip, you will find 49 numbers from which you pick 6. Since the cost per play is $1, when you pay up, you will get the opportunity to choose 6 numbers which you mark them using either a pen or pencil. Alternatively, you can request the retailer to generate numbers randomly for you using Insta Pik. For every Atlantic 49 selection of numbers, you get a computer generated 09 digit number which is preceded by an A. This number is entered in the Guaranteed Prize Draw for a chance to win $25,649. If you want another chance to win, you can add TAG to your ticket for an additional dollar. Each ticket allows you to play TAG up to 10 times. Similar to online, you can also purchase up to 10 consecutive future draws via retail.

A typical Atlantic 49 selection slip will have the following sections; number selection, advanced play, and TAG.
