Last Friday’s Lotto Max main prize is not set to grow bigger for the next draw, as last Friday no one from the country managed to match the winning numbers and claim the prize. During the Friday draw, the jackpot estimated to the impressive CA$20,000,000, and as no ticket holder managed to acquire it, now it will grow larger for the next draw on Tuesday, October 5, 2021.
Over the years, Lotto Max has become one of the most popular draw-based games in Canada, and every year many people are generously rewarded for their participation. Players can purchase tickets for the two weekly draws in both physical tickets and online ticket forms. Participants can win the main prize, which can reach CA$70 million or a Maxmillion prize which is worth CA$1 million.
On Friday, October 1, 2021, the Lotto Max draw could not determine a winner for the main prize therefore, the jackpot will now grow to a greater amount for the next round.
