Advisory: Timing for LOTTO MAX winning numbers, prize validations

$95 Million in Top-Prize money is worth the wait!!

TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ - LOTTO MAX - Canada's biggest-ever lottery draw will be held overnight as the new LOTTO MAX game offers an unprecedented number of big prizes, including a main jackpot of $50 million plus an estimated 45 individual MAXMILLIONS prizes of $1 million each. As each top prize requires its own draw, winning numbers and prize-winning ticket validations may not be immediately available when OLG's lottery terminal network opens for business at 6:00 am Saturday morning. Prize validations for all other games - and for LOTTO MAX prizes won on previous draws, will be available as usual, and the results from tonight's LOTTO MAX draws will be published as quickly as possible.

Customers are being reminded of the additional time required to complete all the draws and publish the results through messages on the Winning Numbers section of our website at OLG.ca and on our winning numbers phone lines (OLG WIN LINE: 1-866-891-8946 or 1-416-870-8946.)
