Biggest lottery in Canadian history this Friday

WINNIPEG, Nov. 3 /CNW/ - On Friday, November 6th, the biggest prize package in Canadian history will be available with LOTTO MAX(TM)! The main Jackpot is now sitting at $50 million - but that's not all. There will also be at least 10 MAXMILLIONS(TM) available to be won. That means there will be an additional 10 draws for $1 million each.

LOTTO MAX is Canada's newest lottery game. Launched in September 2009, the game offers Canadians what they've been looking for - bigger Jackpots and more chances to win million dollar prizes.

Each ticket sold for Friday night's draw is automatically entered in the draw for the main Jackpot and in all 10 of the MAXMILLIONS draws. LOTTO MAX's main Jackpot has subsidiary prizes available for matching as few as three numbers. MAXMILLIONS must be matched exactly to win or share the $1 million prize - there are no subsidiary prizes.

One night - more than $60 million to be won. Live your dreams to the MAX!

      -  Players receive three seven-number Selections (from 1 to 49) per

         mark is reached
      -  If the Jackpot is won, but one or more MAXMILLIONS prizes are not-
         the MAXMILLIONS that are not won will be added to next Jackpot -
         increasing the $10 Million base Jackpot by whatever amount was not
         won in the MAXMILLIONS draws.
