TORONTO, Aug. 6 /CNW/ - Ontario's LOTTO MAX players have another chance to win big this Friday as the LOTTO MAX jackpot has climbed to an estimated $50 million plus an estimated 32 MAXMILLIONS!
"Ontario LOTTO MAX players have won three jackpots since the game launched last September, and this Friday they will have another opportunity to win this life-changing jackpot worth an estimated $50 million," said Wendy Montgomery, Vice-President of Lottery Marketing. "And what makes LOTTO MAX so exciting is that in addition to this week's big jackpot, players will also have a chance to win an estimated 32 additional $1 million prizes."
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.
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.
This is the tenth time that LOTTO MAX has been in MAXMILLIONS mode since the game launched in September 2009.
Tickets are available at authorized OLG retailers until 9 p.m. on Friday, August 6.
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 $32 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.
