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,
