The MAX is back: LOTTO MAX hits $50 million and goes into MAXMILLIONS mode

TORONTO, Nov. 5, 2011 /CNW/ - The "MAX" is back in LOTTO MAX. The jackpot for the Friday, November 11, 2011 is at $50 million, which also means the return of MAXMILLIONS. Along with the chance to win an estimated $50 million, there are two (2) additional and separate $1 million prizes up for grabs.

When the LOTTO MAX jackpot hits $50 million, there are extra, separate $1 million prizes added on to the jackpot. These "MAXMILLIONS" prizes are drawn independently from the LOTTO MAX jackpot draw, which means that each ticket is eligible for winning any one of the top prizes.

The most recent winner of a LOTTO MAX jackpot in Ontario made history. A Woodbridge man, who had the only winning ticket worth $50 million for the October 7, 2011 draw, became the single biggest lottery winner in Ontario history.

Since its launch in September 2009, Ontario LOTTO MAX players have won more than $948 million in prizes, including 17 jackpot wins and 110 winning MAXMILLIONS tickets from all across the province.

For each $5 play, LOTTO MAX players receive three sets of seven numbers ranging from one to forty-nine. Players must match all seven numbers, in any one set, to win the jackpot and the MAXMILLIONS prizes.

Players can purchase tickets at authorized OLG retailers until 9 p.m. Friday, November 11, 2011 for the draw that evening.

OLG is a provincial agency responsible for province-wide lottery games and gaming facilities. Since 1975, OLG lotteries, casinos, slots, and resort casinos have generated more than $34 billion for the benefit of the Province of Ontario. Gaming proceeds support Ontario's hospitals, amateur sport, recreational and cultural activities, communities, provincial priority programs such as health care and education, and local and provincial charities and non-profit organizations through the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
