  1. 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!!!

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 649 scam
    A combination 4 dollar 649BC49 ticket does not pay extra number winnings

  6. 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.

  7. 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…!!

  8. 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

  9. 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!

  10. 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…..

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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???

  14. 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 & Sports Betting

Bclc Review

Bclc.com chose a vision of “Gambling is widely embraced as exceptional entertainment through innovation in design, technology, social responsibility, and customer understanding.” When they talk gambling, it is casino games, sports betting, and Canadian national lotteries. I have issues with this kind of combination, and when I want that kind of action, I’ll head to a casino. Talking simply lotteries, they only offer two. But let’s take a closer look.

Canadian Lotteries Only

You will not find there such lottery giants as US Powerball, Oz Powerball or Mega Millions; Bclc.com aka playnow.com offers access to only two lotteries – the Canadian national games of Lotto Max and 649. Lotto Max is played once a week on Fridays, and the jackpot is a rollover that does build. 649 is a bi-weekly draw on Wednesday and Saturday and doesn’t seem to have the big numbers of Lotto Max at the same time the jackpot is nothing to sneer at. But that is it! If you want to play any other lotteries, don’t go here.

Canadians Only at Bclc.com

It’s interesting in their ‘how to collect your winnings’ that they detail the need to have one of three pieces of ID – that’s Canadian ID. That in itself made me do a full stop. This is a lottery/gambling site for Canadians!

What Does It Cost at Bclc

If you only want to play Canadian national lotteries, the price is right as the cost is the same as walking into a corner store retailer. These guys are official – as in government. The only thing is, when getting into their registration information, it becomes clear that you have to be Canadian.

Roll Your Dice, Pull the One Armed Bandit or Pick Your Numbers

One of the challenging things about getting to the bottom of what happens when you win is the fact this site is casino games and sports betting, and access to the two Canadian lotteries seems like a little sideline. The legal and/or terms and conditions (though they are not detailed as such) concentrate on how the games are played and not on who actually can play them. They don’t even get into spelling out any age limitations for playing until a player gets to the registration process.

Responsible Gambling

This one at Bclc.com gave me a chuckle. You can self-exclude yourself from using the site. There are several options including excluding yourself for 6 months, 1 year, 2 years or 3 years. This includes three options on what you exclude yourself from. I’m not going to go into that as I can’t imagine many people signing themselves up not to be able to use the site much less not play lotteries. They put a whole lot of paperwork into detailing this option.

Complaints at Bclc.com

Ya right! This is an official run site operated by the province of British Columbia. There is no question that it is legitimate and that they pay out when someone wins. People are expected to process their winning tickets themselves.

Customer Service at Bclc.com

Bclc.com aka playnow.com gets full marks on customer service, though you do have to remember that this is a Crown Corporation which means it is government owned and ran. Besides several snail mail addresses and phone numbers, bclc.com does specify the times that they are available, an email form to complete and various email addresses. Hey does anyone know where Kamloops actual is? There is a heap of different times identified for customer service, collecting your winnings and office hours but they are all Pacific Time – in Canada.

Would you mind rating Bclc.com?

The Bottom Line at Bclc

For online lottery players, this site doesn’t do it. They only offer two games, and though the jackpot does grow in both, I have reservations about claiming smaller prizes as these guys aren’t going to do it for you. Players are on their own! This is simply access for people to play two Canadian national lotteries (unless a player is also into casino games and sports betting) full stop.

Lotteries versus Casino and Sports Betting

Though it is very attractive to buy lottery tickets without any additional fees, these guys get a thumbs down from our team for serious lottery players. Other concierge sites offer access to the two National Canadian lotteries and others without the strings attached.
