OLG Poker Lotto for Canadians and International players

The OLG Poker Lotto can be played as Instant Poker or as a game with the night draws. The one, who picks the first variant sees how the dealer on the screen takes 2 hands of 5 cards in each (42 rest cards of a deck remain untouched).
The task is to guess the best combination. The best players can get 5 thousand. If a participant plays the OLG Poker All In variant, he can win a jackpot. Its minimum is 10 thousand! If the night draw variant of the OLG Poker Lottery is chosen, the participant is waiting for this event (at night). In case if he guesses at least 2 of the winning cards, he gets a prize.
