Currently, Lotto Max is looking for its next winner. According to reports from Canada’s lotteries institutions, the jackpot during the last Friday’s round for the game has remained intact, as no ticket from the country, matched the seven winning numbers from the draw. The main prize stood at the impressive amount of CA$24 million but no one got lucky enough to grab it.
Lotto Max is a nationwide lottery game that offers huge winning possibilities with jackpots that can reach the stunning amount of CA$70,000,000. Once the main prize passes the CA$50 million mark, the draw can also provide several Maxmillion rewards to its players each worth CA$1 million. The draws for the game are held every Tuesday and Friday.
Unfortunately for all participants of last Friday’s draw of Lotto Max, the round did not determine a winner for the big CA$24 million jackpot. No ticket from the country’s provinces matched the seven drawn numbers on Friday, but players will have another shot at the hefty prize again on Tuesday. For the November 2 draw, the jackpot will grow to CA$29 million.
Lotto 6/49 which is another quite popular draw-based in Canada also did not determine a winner last week. The Saturday’s draw for the game had a jackpot of CA$8 million, but no one from the country managed to snatch it. The round determined that the guaranteed CA$1 million prize goes to a Quebec resident. The jackpot for the next draw will now be CA$10 million.
