TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - There are more than 50 million reasons to get excited about the next LOTTO MAX draw. The draw on Friday, October 18, 2013 will offer an estimated $50 million jackpot plus an estimated 2 MAXMILLIONS prizes of $1 million each.
When the LOTTO MAX jackpot hits $50 million, players can look for the 'plus' sign where lottery tickets are sold to determine how many extra, separate $1 million prizes are available. These "MAXMILLIONS" prizes are drawn independently from the LOTTO MAX jackpot draw.
Since its launch in September 2009, Ontario LOTTO MAX players have won over $1.9 billion in prizes, including 31 jackpot wins and 169 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, October 18, 2013 for the draw that evening.
