Look On The Plus Side: Two MAXMILLIONS Winning Tickets In Ontario; An
Estimated 26 MAXMILLIONS Available in Friday's Draw

TORONTO, July 17 /CNW/ - Canadians can look on the plus side again this week, as the $50 million LOTTO MAX jackpot has rolled once again and there will be an estimated 26 $ 1 million MAXMILLIONS added to the LOTTO MAX draw for Friday, July 23.

"There's still a chance for someone to win the big jackpot and LOTTO MAX is still in MAXMILLIONS mode which means that we are adding even more additional $1 million prizes to the game this week," said Wendy Montgomery, Vice-President of Lottery Marketing.

Last night's LOTTO MAX draw had an additional thirteen MAXMILLIONS draws resulting in two Ontario winning tickets, both purchased in the GTA.

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.

Since the game launched in September 2009, there have been one hundred a thirty two MAXMILLIONS winning tickets in total, forty seven of them from Ontario.
