$112-Million Up For Grabs In OLG LOTTO MAX Draw
If you are a fan of the lottery, there is a lot of money up for grabs.
There is now a $60-million jackpot, plus 52 $1-million prizes in Friday night's LOTTO MAX draw --- a total of $112-million in prizes.
Ontario Lottery and Gaming Spokesperson Dita Kuhtey says the record high jackpot motives players to buy a ticket.
Since this draw started on April 27th and with no winners, Kuhtey says there has been a 20% increase in sales week-over-week.
"Windsor appears to be a lucky place for winners," says Kuhtey. "Windsor is a great place to be for lottery, I did some digging and there have been 1,500 major wins of $10,000 or more in Windsor since lottery started and that is sharing in about $168-million in prizes."
For each $5 play, LOTTO MAX players receive three sets of seven numbers ranging from one to 49.
There are 85,900,584 possible combinations of numbers for each LOTTO MAX.
Players can purchase a ticket up until 10:30pm for the draw.
