WINNIPEG, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - Starting Saturday, September 19th, lottery players will have their first chance to play Canada's newest lottery game: LOTTO MAX(TM)!
We've been talking to Canadians and the message has been loud and clear: Canadians want big Jackpots, and more chances to win million-dollar prizes. With its distinctive prize structure that's unique to Canada, LOTTO MAX will deliver both!
Jackpots for the new Friday evening draw game start at $10 Million, and can grow as high as $50 Million. Once they reach that level, the game kicks into MAXMILLIONS(TM) mode: the main Jackpot remains at $50 Million, but additional MAXMILLIONS prize will become available to win. MAXMILLIONS are $1 Million prizes, each drawn with its own set of winning numbers.
As LOTTO MAX enters the marketplace, another game retires. The last SUPER 7 draw occurs tomorrow, September 18th, and players will be interested to know that all prize money for this final draw is guaranteed to be won. If there's no Jackpot winner, the Jackpot money will be added to the next prize category.
