LOTTO MAX is making history! Jackpot Hits an Estimated $100 Million in Top Prizes in Ontario

TORONTO, June 30, 2012 /CNW/ - Ontarians are celebrating this Canada Day long weekend knowing there are several LOTTO MAX tickets that have won large prizes from last night's (June 29, 2012) draw.

Two of the 28 MAXMILLIONS drawn are winning tickets purchased in: 

  • $1,000,000 ticket, Windsor Region
  • $500,000 ticket, London Region

In addition, a ticket purchased in Burlington is sharing the second prize with a ticket purchased in Atlantic Canada. These tickets are worth $393,500.40.

Lottery players in Ontario can look on the plus side of LOTTO MAX. As there was no winning ticket for the $50 million LOTTO MAX jackpot last night, the upcoming LOTTO MAX draw for Friday July 6, 2012 is once again an estimated $50 million. Additionally, there are an estimated 50 separate $1 million MAXMILLIONS prizes up for grabs, on top of the jackpot, bringing the total prize amount to $100 million.

Since the inception of LOTTO MAX, 22 jackpots have been won in Ontario and shared by 126 Ontarians and 69 of $1 Million MAXMILLION prizes were won and shared by 291 Ontarians.

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. EST on Friday, July 6, 2012.
