TORONTO, May 14 /CNW/ - The LOTTO MAX jackpot is on the rise again. Tonight's draw sits at an estimated $20 million.
"$20 million is a lot of money. You can really start dreaming with that amount!" said Wendy Montgomery, Vice-President of Lottery Marketing at Ontario Lottery and Gaming.
Ontario's most recent LOTTO MAX winner is Donald Macdonald who won $10 million in the March 13, 2010 draw.
Since its launch in September 2009, Ontario LOTTO MAX players have won just under $120 million in prizes, including three jackpot wins.
