Lotto MAX is once again the topic of wide discussion across the Canadian provinces, as its Main prize has remained untouched for quite a while now. This Thursday is set to introduce a main jackpot of some CA$70,000,000, as the most recent lottery draw could not attract a winning Lotto MAX ticket from any of the provinces.
Every week introduces as many as two regular draws of the popular lottery game and individuals interested in winning big keep their eyes set on the prize. For some, this is the Main prize coming with every draw and progressively increasing in time. For others, this is one of the additional prizes coming with every regular Lotto MAX draw.
Lotto MAX and Lotto 6/49 are two of the most popular draw-based games with tickets that could be purchased both in-person from a point of sale and online through the Crown corporation’s official websites. May 24 witnessed the latest lottery draw of Lotto MAX and many individuals kept their breath, as it offered them the chance to bag a great Main prize.
It was once again an estimated CA$70 million and many players purchased their tickets ahead of the draw. However, the winning numbers drawn could not match completely no ticket purchased across the Canadian provinces. They were 12, 26, 30, 31, 35, 39, 45, as well as the bonus number 22. The high Main prize resulted in many ticket purchases ahead of May 24 and also in an increase in the number of additional prizes.
The Main prize itself could not swell more, as there is a cap placed on it. On the other hand, the Maxmillion additional prizes of CA$1 million could be snatched by more people. This Tuesday brought some fifteen additional prizes. Only one of them was grabbed by a ticket sold in the Atlantic provinces, as Atlantic Lottery Corporation later on revealed.
Whoever is in possession of the ticket has a total of 52 weeks to claim their Maxmillion prize and become a millionaire. As time progresses and if nobody claims their prize, more details about the winner will be revealed. May 27 is set to bring the next Lotto MAX lottery draw, once again with the maximum main prize of CA$70 million. Moreover, it will also bring as many as 28 CA$1,000,000 Maxmillion prizes up for grabs.
Speaking of players that have yet to claim their prizes, there is a lottery enthusiast in Ontario that has yet to muster the courage to claim their lottery prize from almost a year ago. The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation recently reminded that there is a ticket purchased in Ottawa that is eligible for an additional prize coming with the regular Lotto MAX draw.
It has the numbers 4, 6, 13, 25, 37, 41, and 47 printed on it and it split the CA$1,000,000 prize with another thicket. Whoever is in possession of this ticket, has very little time to fill in the back portion of the ticket, sign it, and get in touch with the Crown corporation’s customer support on the phone.
