Lotto Max has offered the biggest jackpots ever seen in Canada. The top prize is worth a minimum of $10 million and can grow all the way up to $70 million. The MAXMILLIONS feature also provides extra chances to become a millionaire once the jackpot has reached $50 million.
How to Play Lotto Max
Playing Lotto Max is as simple as selecting seven numbers from 1 to 50. In fact, you can even opt for a Quick Pick to get seven numbers generated at random by the ticket terminal.
Whether you select your own numbers or not, you'll also receive two additional Quick Picks - giving you three sets of numbers in total. This is the minimum play on Lotto Max and it costs $5.
If you're playing at a lottery retailer in Western Canada, you can make up to five Lotto Max selections per play board. This would cost $25 and give you 15 chances to win.
You can also add Western Max to each selection for a further $2 per play. If you select 'Play Both' on your slip, you will receive exactly the same sets of numbers. Extra is also available alongside Lotto Max for an additional $1 per selection.
You can enter up to 25 consecutive Lotto Max draws by marking the appropriate box on your slip or asking the retailer.
The cut-off time for ticket sales is 9:30pm Central Time (8:30pm Mountain Time/7:30pm Pacific Time) on draw days. Lotto Max is available nationwide if you're away from Western Canada, but you always need to claim prizes from the same lottery corporation as you buy your ticket from.
When you play Extra, you receive a seven-digit number that is randomly generated by the ticket terminal. You have to match all seven winning numbers in the exact order to win the top prize of $250,000. You also win prizes for matching the last one, two, three, four, five or six numbers.
How to Win Lotto Max
To win the jackpot, your seven numbers must be the same as all seven of the numbers that appear in the Lotto Max draw. The jackpot is always worth at least $10 million and is carried over to the next draw if no tickets win. The jackpot can continue to climb until it reaches its cap of $70 million.
If you don't match all the numbers, there are still other ways to win. Match at least three of the seven numbers and you'll receive a prize.
A Bonus Ball is also drawn in Lotto Max from the 43 numbers that are left after the main seven have been selected. This creates additional prize categories, so if you match the Bonus and at least three numbers you'll receive an even larger prize.
The following table shows all the different prize categories and the odds of winning:

When the jackpot reaches $50 million, a feature called MAXMILLIONS is triggered to give you even more chances to win. You will be automatically entered into this extra game so you don't have to do anything else.
The jackpot will be increased incrementally until it is won or reaches its $70 million cap (usually it will be $5 million at a time, so $50 million, 55 million, and so on). Any additional money is used for MAXMILLIONS, and a series of separate prizes worth $1 million are put up for grabs. For example, if the advertised jackpot is $60 million and there is $64 million in the pot, there will be four MAXMILLIONS draws.
For each MAXMILLIONS game, there is a separate draw to produce seven winning numbers from 1 to 50. If your Lotto Max numbers match all seven winning numbers, you win or share $1 million. There are no smaller prizes in MAXMILLIONS, so you have to match all the numbers or you do not win.
If any of the MAXMILLIONS prizes are not won, they are carried over to the next draw if the Lotto Max jackpot is still more than $50 million. It has happened several times that more than $100 million has been put up for grabs in total, with a huge jackpot and dozens of MAXMILLIONS prizes.
When the jackpot hits $70 million, it cannot go any higher and only the number of MAXMILLIONS prizes can be increased until the Lotto Max top prize is finally won. Once the jackpot is won, any outstanding prize money from MAXMILLIONS is added to the jackpot for the next draw, so the top prize has been known to start at $50 million straight after a $70 million payout.
