MONTRÉAL, May 28, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - This Friday, Lotto Max will offer a $50 million jackpot in addition to 50 Maxmillions,* for prizes totalling $100 million. This is one of the biggest amounts in the history of both Québec and Canada.
"Lotto Max, with its 50-million-dollar jackpot and its Maxmillions, create tremendous excitement among Quebecers," says Yves Corbeil, who has been welcoming Loto-Québec's winners for nearly 40 years. He went on to say, "When the jackpots are this impressive, co-workers, friends and family members spontaneously come together to create groups enabling them to dream big, and who knows, maybe even win big!"
It's thanks to Lotto Max that Loto-Québec has been able to create the biggest winners in its history, particularly two $50 million jackpots respectively won on July 6, 2012, and May 31, 2013.
Since Lotto Max was launched in September 2009, Quebecers have won 49 Maxmillions and 42 shares of Maxmillions. Overall, Quebecers have won more than $890 million with this lottery product.
