TORONTO, Aug. 18 /CNW/ - The Ottawa area owner(s) of a winning ticket
for half of the $50 million LOTTO
MAX jackpot from the August 13, 2010 draw has still not come
"No-one has come forward with a winning ticket yet, so if you bought a
ticket check your numbers either at an OLG retailer or on OLG.ca," said
Wendy Montgomery, Vice-President of Lottery Marketing at the Ontario
Lottery and Gaming Corporation. "We're excited and waiting to meet
Ontario's new multi-millionaire."
In the Friday, August 13 LOTTO MAX draw, there were also 11
winning MAXMILLIONS tickets sold
5 tickets worth $1 million each - sold in Toronto, Milton and in the
3 tickets worth $500,000 each - sold in Richmond Hill and Toronto
3 tickets worth $333,333.40 each - sold in Napanee, Cambridge and
MAXMILLIONS are additional $1 million draws added to the game when the
LOTTO MAX jackpot reaches $50 million. 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 the jackpot but also the
chance to win any of the $1 million MAXMILLIONS draws on the same date.
Of the 40 MAXMILLIONS prizes drawn in last Friday's draw, a total of 14
were won across Canada. The unwon MAXMILLIONS prizes will be rolled into
this Friday's LOTTO MAX draw which means the jackpot will be an
estimated $36 million.

lottery games and gaming facilities. Since 1975, OLG lotteries, Casinos,
