  1. BC Keno lottery is a joke, I’ve had conversations with them about the validity of the game, I told them the computer recognizes numbers picked, they said it’s based on odds, I said Bullshit it recognizes numbers, funny how numbers always come up beside the ones picked or after the last draw, they need to be sued for corruption…

  2. The Bclc keno, is rigged, bclc keno is a dishonest entity that utilizes algorithms to cheat players out of winning, try filing a complaint and it won’t accept legitimate email address, BCLC are cheating players across BC, typical of the government to rip people off!!!

  3. Hope all the money they’ve taken won from me is going to a good cause… I doubt it though. The world being as it is.

  4. BCLC is an amateur gambling site that will try your patience in every gambling session. The site will freeze, go to demo mode or just simply take your money without even providing a game. There are other sites that are more competent and provide superior customer service compared to this government run site. Good luck with BCLC, you will need it.

  5. Bclc keno is a scam and I believe it to be rigged, I checked my ticket while a draw was in progress and it came up as not a winner with only 5 numbers having been drawn as I checked it.

  6. I tried to warn people on Facebook and YouTube but my comments get deleted within 30 seconds. This is a crazy scam that’s backed by the government. Please hold onto your money. There is a reason then ban other casinos from supplying all the best slots like big time gaming slots. It’s so you are forced to play on their casinos. They will bleed you dry.

  7. The collusion is too hard to play against. The same players are on every table playing as a team. It is 2v1 or 3v1 every hand and they do not take chips from each other once you are out of the hand. It is impossible to win here stay far away. Online poker is corrupt now.

  8. The whole system is rigged. You haven’t figured it out yet

  9. CORRUPT???
    at least bring back the 649 draw on TV I felt that was a little more honest??? no wonder lotto max is soooo high no one wins on the scratches it’s like SCAM

  10. Horrible experience, definitely rigged computer winnings in their favour. I win non stop on $1 hands. I play $5 lose, then play another $5 lose. Then back to playing $1 hands win the next 5 hands. Feeling bullish I play $10 lose. Play $5 lose. Back to $1 two black jacks win the next 4 hands. Felling good, play $25 lose. Play $5 three times lose. Back to $1 win the next 6 hands. Looking good right play $100 dealer gets black jack I lose. Play another $100 dealer gets another blackjack WtF! Back to $1 hands. on a winning streak again like 7 winning $1 hands. Feeling bullish I drop $50 I get a blackjack dealer gets a black jack. Now I’m pissed I’ve been winning on $1 hands as soon as I bet big, the dealer win Algorithm kicks in and always lose…last try So I dropped the $50 again I get 2 face cards for a 20 I hold. Dealer pulls a 6 card 21 I lose again! There computer blackjack is definitely rigged so strange how always win on the $1 hand, but as soon as you bet big dealer always win. We need to get a lawsuit against the lottery corporation. We need some computer wizards who can read their computer Algorithms to prove there cheating players! It’s not okay for you to cheat them, but they can cheat you!

  11. The worst. Customer support is non-existent. Initially, I could use the clunky app and purchase on-line tickets thru my RBC debit card. That function is no longer available and no amount of calling their support line in Kamloops has solved this problem. It’s as if they’re genuinely disinterested in solving the issue, but what can you expect from a Provincially run Corporation but apathy.

  12. wherever you see live casinos are all scams. Trust me.. even the machines in local casinos where you see the dealer on the screen looks live.

  13. I believe the log out allowed them to reset the odds.
    I’ve had a ticket in on the Monopoly Mega for over 2 months, sent 4 emails,s and have talked to 3 customer service reps, still the same error comes up

  14. It’s a scam. Never works🤣🤣🤣🤣what else you wanna know? It never work.

  15. Worst ever, I deposited 700$ I won 53,000$ I kept 3000 in the casino and then withdrew 50,000 I play for a while with the 3000 and lost, logged out very happy took my dogs outside, came in had a shower and dinner. I logged back in deposit 1000$ cause hey I have 50,000 coming to me. In the middle of playing that 1000 on rino megaways I get suddenly logged out not anything odd really that happens to me a lot , so I go to log back in and they locked my account and tell me it was compromised and that it was account sharing so I don’t get my winnings and they kept the 800$ I was down to from my deposit. I try chat and they say they have escalated it and then I receive an email stating my account was shared so it has been band, I’m the only one that plays any casino in my household. My wife hates gambling and neither my wife or kids have the password to even log on my computer. Nice job rooking another player BCLC. You guys are definitely good at your job. There will be a special place in hell for you all.

  16. Absolutely rigged site. Don’t try to think can win money from there. I played on baccarat table using 1-3-7-15-31-64 strategies. Sometimes when I feel uncomfortable after 5 hands lose then I stop. Of course the 6th hands won when I didn’t bet. However when I have guts or confirmed has good chance on 6th hands. Then 100% percent lose

  17. Play here if you like to throw your money in the garbage. If you are lucky enough to win, the game will crash during a bonus and if you reload the game the bonus will have just ended. Or if you spend $1000 to get to the bonus the pay out will be $2.00. Fun! Never happens to me at other casinos. This casino is tight as it holds on to your cash and doesn’t give much in return other than a few bucks here and there. If you win over $1000, you’ll be waiting days for your deposit. With all these bad reviews bclc does not attempt to give out promos or anything. Rip off.

  18. I have been playing keno regularly for 10 years and since June 2019 when they shut it down for two months it has not been the same even for one day. I think it was shut down to add a heat map to the number selection software. This can prevent the most chosen numbers from being drawn. The odds are now much worse than advertised.

  19. They have rigged software stealing money from honest players in online poker. Avoid this site. You will get cheated.

  20. The worst online website ever! Lots of glitches that make you lose your money and they never ever respond back and will never pay you back for their issues!! I have video of my screen that shows in the middle of poker hand my cards changed!!! I sent them the video and they said it happens!!!

  21. Online site for B.C. Lottery has a warning in the address box, that it’s printing out errors, for your house #, and even if you type in out right, it comes out wrong,… . and they refuse to correct it only if you give them your picture I.D. and two different utility bills, for I.D.
    they refuse the B.C. directory, (phone book) for prove of house # even tho your name, street, town, phone is all the same, as proof.
    This is all a person needs to go mortgage your house or property, on you….. this was happening in eastern Canada, years ago, and owners were been stuck with the debts by the banks. because courts were siding with the banks……. as crazy as this sounds…. it’s true!

  22. Not happy with BCLC PlayNow online lottery ticket purchase. They don’t answer your calls. They have a horrible online web site that is constantly having issues. You can’t ever buy tickets online. Especially, at a time like this it would a great comfort to be able to buy online instead of having to risk my life going into a 7 eleven to purchase a ticket. A very irresponsible company. It appears that they just automatically put you on hold with no intention of answering your call. I’ve been on hold for hours now over multiple days. Their live chat pretends to answer and then disconnects you before answering your questions or concerns.

  23. You are thieves. Of the highest order since you do it with all the legal coverage the government commands for their actions. You can only hope there is no God or Judgement coming because you would surely be found in default. I admit I am weak and willing to try to improve my lot without MORE hard work. You have no concept of the idea of “work”. It’s all trickery with your kind and will only end when one of you gets that last penny. I do NOT wish you well.

  24. 649 scam
    A combination 4 dollar 649BC49 ticket does not pay extra number winnings
    Check your tickets
    Anyone in bc is losing money to Bclc
    Thank you Bclc
    How much money at 1, 2, or? Extra number winnings is being taken by Bclc
    Don in Brentwood bay

  25. I read all the 1 star comments above and yes, BCLC is certainly using cheating ways.

    I have had similar experiences as the ones I could read from other users like: Keno machine jams and freezes and then you get the numbers, odds decreasing as you play, and even the casino making you win a few hundreds for several hours until around 3 AM… just to, then one day, come back at you and show you how many times you signed a paper for claiming your prize. LOL…

    Employees reading your personal life with some powerful acknowledgment, as to tell you if you wouldn’t be better with a girlfriend, or anything else may be…

    As for customer service, it is awful and cold. The casino can make you wait 30-60 minutes on a winning machine so you lose the urge to leave home with the wins and then think around and stay to lose it all again, among other evil ways.

    You have to go to Quebec’s Loto-Québec for a better, but cold, gambling service and to get much better odds, by far…and even there, they’re so so.

  26. after playing online slots..mainly the same game..have noticed that the odds of winning decrease significantly as you play more..no doubt the games are set this way on order to make more revenue for bclc..but this also means that your chances of winning a ‘jackpot’ are seriously reduced..but you are gambling the same amount of money..! no doubt they promote the odds of winning based on your first few plays..but this decreases over time.
    NOT A FAIR PRACTICE… I feel a little cheated…!!

    • played the same slot game for 2 weeks and had a bit of luck, very enjoyable
      but all of a sudden the game stopped paying and half my winning were gone.
      I think they let you win for a while then the game stops paying.

  27. Ya they are definitely doing some strait up rip offs I play keno all the time and I use to win 500 all the time with my play way then they go and change the whole style of it and now instead of 3.20 to get your tickets in its down to 1.40 tops and it stalls kicks u out were u have to sign back in o and guess what my numbers came up on that draw wow what bad luck I have !!! Nope they know yi it r about to win and fuck u up the scary thing is is playnow runs the ticket checker on your mobile device how many tickets have I checked and thrown away and there servicing it again if some one sees it made a mistake im sure we won’t hear about it and I still play the same way and since ive been using my phone scanner its been months since I’ve won other then 2 buc ok s and don’t get kg e started on the slot machines the payouts are different almost every day and should be the same hm a one slot machine says the odds are 40,000-to-1 to hit the it jackpot ive spun five times that over the years and finally hit it on the one dollar and it paid 375.00 after thousands spent just a joke

  28. Total scam on Blackjack. Player could get 100 hands on 13-16 when house always got 19-20! I lost 20 thousand in two weeks! This is insane! All we ask was a fair game!

  29. BCLC are a monopoly. They push out all other companies and competitors in order to make you play on their casinos. I use to love sports betting with Betfair but they pushed them out. I also love to play Big time gaming slots, but slowly and surely they are one by one, banning online casinos from offering their slots to Canadian players. It’s also terribly difficult to fund any account and online wallets because they intervene and block all payment options. I hate BCLC with a passion. It’s my own money so let me do what I want with it. Jokers…..

  30. Bclc are crooks! Their execs get 6 figure plus salaries and they rip the public off! I am waiting for the whistle blower with courage to confirm that keno is a scam! What is played affects what numbers will be drawn. Random is a myth! Please stop contributing to these thieves! Stop supporting the bclc scumbags!

  31. BCLC online black jack not the live dealer.
    I Find this to be a scam when bet 1$ I always win the hand as soon as I raise bet $25 I always loose. Seems to be something in the algorithm of their program that makes sure BCLC never loose big hands. I would play 5 consecutive hands at $25 and loose every one I would have two high cards 20 and the dealer pulls a seven card 21 I call bull shit! They try to maximize your loss any minimize there’s. Of course they would never admit that there black jack games do this but after playing at least a thousand hands I sure see a pattern. Do not play there online black jack total scam unless you want to play $1 hands all the time.

  32. I have to say the thing that makes me agree about B.C.L.C is. After decades of buying tickets and for the most part loosing everything. I look at moneys lost and think about how much they took from me alone.
    Now add up everyone else in my shoes and they can’t supply a simple ticket scanner free?? I put a lot into this outfit already, we all have. JUST A SCANNER/CHECKER for Android. How hard would that be for them to make happen???

  33. I like straight forward online agents, and this seams like just another betting site. On the main page there is all about lottery, but when you look a little bit deeper it’s actually betting and casino games. Not my cup of tea.

BCLC Exposed — Lotteries VS Casino and Sports Betting

BCLC Review

BCLC or British Columbia Lottery Corporation, provides local online gaming and casino opportunities. Are these opportunities good or bad, however? That’s what we’re about to find out today.

The BC Lottery Corp. is an official entity, and as such, it should have a pretty reputable, well-oiled online gaming opportunity. If you’ve taken a look at the BCLC.com user reviews underneath this guide, you’ll see a completely different picture.

People are quite dissatisfied with the way the website works and what it has to offer. The BCLC app is often described as slow and bug-ridden, keeping people from enjoying their gaming and winning money.

In this review, we’ll take a look at the opportunities, the strengths, the weaknesses, and the validity of the complaints.

Games at BCLC

Since BCLC is a regional entity, you can expect to find local lotteries there.

At the time of writing, the lottery games available for online purchasing through BCLC.com include Lotto Max and Extra, Lotto 6/49, BC/49, Daily Grand, Scratch and Win, Poker Lotto, Keno, and Keno Bonus, Pacific Hold ’em Poker, BC Lotto 50/50, and Pull Tabs.

Is there a difference if you decide to buy BC Lottery tickets online or through an actual neighborhood retailer? The good news is that there isn’t. BCLC.com does not charge an additional commission if you decide to acquire your tickets through the platform. The cost is the same, and you benefit from the convenience of not having to leave your home when you decide to purchase Lotto Max BC tickets or a playslip for any other local game.

Apart from British Columbia lotteries, the website also has a digital casino and a sports betting section.

BCLC and Getting Your Prizes

You can play British Columbia lotteries both through the website and the relatively new BCLC app.

The app comes with additional cool functionalities. For example, you can scan a ticket you bought offline to find out if you’ve won anything. If you purchased tickets online through BCLC.com, you would be alerted about winning a prize, and there’s no need to check.

The prize claim procedure is described in full detail on the BCLC FAQ page.

Prizes of up to 2,000 dollars are credited to a player’s account instantly. For more considerable sums, players will need to visit a regional prize payout location in BC.

Who Can Play at BCLC?

There is an intricate authentication process that you have to go through to sign up for a BCLC account.

As per the official terms and conditions, you need to be at least 19, and there’s also a BC residency requirement that is verified by a third party. Thus, if you live in another country and you’d like to test out British Columbia lotteries like BCLC Lotto 6/49, for example, you’ll have to seek another opportunity.

Keep in mind that even if you are a BC resident, you can only buy BCLC.com lottery tickets while you are physically within British Columbia. If you travel outside of BC, you will not enjoy the opportunities that the online platform offers.

BCLC.com Terms and Conditions

BCLC.com has pretty standard terms and conditions – nothing particularly worrisome there.

As already mentioned, there’s a pretty strict verification process to make sure you are of the age and residency to participate in BCLC games. If you somehow manage to bypass the safeguards, you’ll still experience problems at the time you decide to make a prize claim.

BCLC also provides various opportunities for responsible gaming. Setting weekly limits on deposits is one of those options.

Also, keep in mind that when signing up for an account, a player agrees to use it individually. This means you can’t lead your spouse or friends to play through your profile.

Who Is Behind BCLC?

As already mentioned, the online portal is developed by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation.

BCLC has been around since 1985, and it operates under governmental regulations. It was incorporated under the Provincial Company Act. Initially, it offered lotteries solely. Eventually, the authority of the corporation was expanded to cover casino games and sports betting.

You can get in touch with their support team via phone, live chat, and email. Also, BCLC has numerous retail venues and customer centers throughout BC you can visit.

Other Bits and Pieces

While the BC Lottery Corp app is entirely legitimate, there are numerous complaints about its operation.

Most of these negative testimonials focus on the glitchiness of the website and the app.

People are also dissatisfied with the extensive verification procedures and the quality of customer service. Some had had to call multiple calls before someone picked up and took their complaint to heart.

So, in essence, there’s nothing wrong with the website itself. Issues stem from how BCLC is being operated and maintained.

Would you mind rating Bclc.com?

The Bottom Line at BCLC

BCLC.com isn’t the best, but it’s also not the worst online lottery platform out there. It’s a pretty niche product, and hence, the number of people who can benefit from it is limited by default.

Let’s sum up the biggest BCLC app’s pros and cons.


Run and operated by an official state entity under the BC regulatory framework

Offers both national and local British Columbia lotteries

Online casino and sports betting opportunities are available

Ticket prices are the same as within the BC retail network

There’s a BCLC app that can be used to play, scan tickets and check results


Only available for BC residents

Even if you are a BC resident, you cannot play on the website when you’re out of the territory

A very strict, rigorous, and complex ID verification process

There have been multiple complaints about the quality of the customer service

Users also complained about the quality of the website and the fact that it tends to freeze up quite often

Is BCLC the right platform to choose if you want to play Canadian lotteries? Unless you are in BC, the answer is no. Luckily, there are many other less restrictive online platforms out there to access your favorite Canadian games, as well as multiple other popular lottery games from all parts of the word.
