Lotto Max is Canada’s national lottery game. It replaced Lotto Super 7 in 2009, with a first draw occurring on September 25. The lottery game has become much more successful than its predecessor. The success is associated with the larger size of its total prize pools and consumers’ perception that the MaxMillions system has increased their chances of winning. In 2019 the Tuesday draw was added, also, two more prize tiers and a jackpot cap was increased from $60 million to $70 million!
Lotto is held every Tuesday and Friday. To participate in a game, you have to purchase a ticket. A single ticket costs $5 and it has three sets of numbers - this means three time bigger chances to win. The main jackpot prize starts at $10 million. When it reaches $50 million, additional drawings called MaxMillions are held. So, once the main jackpot reaches $50 million, only MaxMillions can grow.
MaxMillions are extremely popular in Canada mainly for the “small” prizes of $1 million each. MaxMillions prizes can roll over until they are won. Another great feature is that additional MaxMillions prizes are added for each week when the main jackpot of at least $50 million is not won. When the main jackpot is won, the unclaimed prizes are then added to the next week’s game on top of the $10 million minimum. Also, all prizes are tax-free.
How to play Lotto Max?
Firstly, you need to purchase a ticket. For $5 you receive three seven-numbers containing selections. You can play by Quick Pick, where the Ticket Terminal will randomly choose all the numbers, or pick your numbers. If you choose your own numbers, you have to select seven numbers from a field of 1 to 50. So the first combination of seven numbers is of your choice and the other two combinations terminal selects itself. That means each line of numbers brings you chances to win. If you want to increase your chances of winning even more, you can add one extra number for an additional $1. You can purchase up to five Lotto Max on one ticket. If that is not enough for you, there is an opportunity for an additional $1 to add an extra chance to win the $250,000 top prize or $100,000-second prize on Fridays. For all those choices, ask your ticket retailer.
