LOOK ON THE PLUS SIDE: LOTTO MAX Jackpot Remains at an Estimated $50 Million - 20 Additional MAXMILLIONS Estimated

TORONTO, Feb. 26 /CNW/ - Lottery players in Ontario can look on the plus side of LOTTO MAX again. As there was no winning ticket for the $50 million LOTTO MAX jackpot last night, the upcoming LOTTO MAX draw for Friday, March 4 will remain at an estimated $50 million with an additional estimated 20 $1 million MAXMILLIONS prizes up for grabs, bringing the total prize amount to $70 million.

Last night's draw for seven MAXMILLIONS, resulted in 2 winning tickets in Ontario, in the city of Toronto.

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 the number of additional MAXMILLIONS draws that are also estimated.

Players can check winning numbers at lottery retailers, by calling OLG's WIN! Line at 416-870-8946 (Toronto area) or toll free at 1-866-891-8946 (outside the Toronto area), or by visiting OLG.ca.

There have been eighty-seven MAXMILLIONS winning tickets in Ontario since the game launched in September 2009.

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.

Tickets are available at official OLG retailers until 9 p.m. on Friday, March 4.

OLG is a provincial agency responsible for province-wide lottery games and gaming facilities. Since 1975, OLG lotteries, casinos, slots, and resort casinos have generated more than $32 billion for the benefit of the Province of Ontario. Gaming proceeds support Ontario's hospitals, amateur sport, recreational and cultural activities, communities, provincial priority programs such as health care and education, and local and provincial charities and non-profit organizations through the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
