$70 million Lotto Max fever

$70 million Lotto Max fever

Meanwhile, 2019 was a record-breaking year for lottery winnings in the province.

The prize in Friday night's nationwide Lotto Max draw stood at $70 million, a figure the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation said is the highest ever awarded in Canada. To date, the largest jackpot ever won in Canada was worth $65 million and has only been won two times in Canadian history.

You may want to hold on to those plans for a new home, auto and vacation.

Kuhtey said the current pot has reached stratospheric levels because Lotto Max has not produced a victor since November 26, 2019. If you're thinking of trying your luck to win $70 million on Friday, you need to purchase your ticket online or at an authorized retailer by 10:30 p.m. ET on January 3. Whenever the price is not announced, the pot rises by five percent until it reaches this new $ 70 million cap.

After the jackpot hits $50 million, the OLG starts adding additional Maxmillions prizes. Kevin van Egdom, communications director for the WGLC, said the previous cap was $60 million. He says all you need is one ticket to have those seven numbers.

New cannabis products may not eat into black market, experts say
However, supply issues are expected, meaning you had better act fast if you want to try out the products in the initial offering. The province's pot distributor offered few details about what will be unveiled.

Since then, about $2.5 billion has been claimed in Alberta, according to a WCLC list of winners from the last 40 years whose prizes were at least $1 million.

The Western Canadian Lottery Corporation (WCLC) says half of sales typically comes on the day of the draw.

Regardless of the jackpot size, the odds of winning Lotto Max remain the same, about one in 33 million.

You can buy Lotto Max tickets up until 10:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday for that draw for your chance at winning a lot of cash.
