LOOK ON THE PLUS SIDE: LOTTO MAX Jackpot Once Again Hits an Estimated $50 Million - 23 Additional MAXMILLIONS Estimated

TORONTO, April 2 /CNW/ - Lottery players in Ontario can look on the plus side of LOTTO MAX again. As there was no winning ticket for the $50 million LOTTO MAX jackpot last night, the upcoming LOTTO MAX draw for Friday, April 8 is once again an estimated $50 million. Additionally, there are an estimated 23 $1 million MAXMILLIONS prizes up for grabs, on top of the jackpot, bringing the total prize amount to $73 million.

There are two winning MAXMILLIONS tickets in the province. The winning tickets were purchased in:

  • Toronto   $1,000,000 ticket
  • Barrie      $500,000 ticket (shared with Quebec)

When LOTTO MAX is in MAXMILLIONS mode, consumers will see the green 'plus' symbol at retailers and in advertising. This indicates that the LOTTO MAX jackpot is estimated at $50 million plus the number of additional MAXMILLIONS draws that are also estimated.

There have been 104 MAXMILLIONS winning tickets in Ontario since the game launched in September 2009.

MAXMILLIONS prizes are drawn separately from the LOTTO MAX jackpot draw, which means that a LOTTO MAX ticket not only gives players a chance at $50 million but also the chance to win any of the $1 million MAXMILLIONS draws on the same date.

Tickets are available at official OLG retailers until 9 p.m. on Friday, April 8.
