Eight Winning MAXMILLIONS Tickets Sold in Ontario

$50 Million Jackpot Still Up For Grabs

TORONTO, July 24 /CNW/ - Ontario's LOTTO MAX players will have another chance to win big this week, as there was no winning ticket for last night's $50 million LOTTO MAX jackpot. The upcoming LOTTO MAX jackpot for July 30 will remain at an estimated $50 million, with an additional estimated 29 MAXMILLIONS.

While there was no winner of last night's $50 million jackpot, there were eight winning MAXMILLIONS tickets in Ontario, sold in areas including Toronto (3), Woodbridge, Oshawa, Barrie Region, North Bay, and London. Five of the eight Ontario tickets each won $1 million, while the remaining three hold partial shares of the million dollar prize.

There were also two winning tickets in Ontario for the second prize each worth $383,156 - one sold in Toronto and one in Mississauga.

"We're excited that LOTTO MAX continues to make more millionaires in Ontario," said Wendy Montgomery, Vice-President of Lottery Marketing. "With the $50 million jackpot still available this Friday, Ontario players will have another chance to win big."

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 how many additional MAXMILLIONS are estimated. MAXMILLIONS are additional $1 million prizes added to the game when the 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 $50 million but also the chance to win any of the $1 million MAXMILLIONS draws on the same date.
