Total Prize Amount for LOTTO MAX Gets a Special Boost: LOTTO MAX Hits an Estimated $50 Million and Goes into MAXMILLIONS Mode

TORONTO, Jan. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - There are more than $50 million reasons to get excited about the next LOTTO MAX draw. The draw on Friday, January 27, 2012 will offer an estimated $50 million jackpot plus an estimated 2 MAXMILLIONS prizes of $1 million each.

LOTTO MAX jackpots usually grow by $10 million when a jackpot is not won, but from time to time LOTTO MAX may also offer a special jackpot. That's the case for the January 27, 2012 draw.

Since its launch in September 2009, Ontario LOTTO MAX players have won over $1.1 billion in prizes, including 19 jackpot wins and 114 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, January 27, 2012 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.
