RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwire – Oct. 27, 2010) – MAXMILLIONS are once again available for this week’s LOTTO MAX draw, which is worth an estimated total of $61 Million.
Every $5 LOTTO MAX ticket sold for Friday’s draw offers players three chances to win the $50 Million jackpot plus one of an estimated 11 MAXMILLION prizes of $1 Million each, which means the draw could produce as many as twelve new LOTTO MAX-millionaires in a single night.
Winning a MAXMILLION prize is similar to winning the main jackpot – a player must match all seven winning numbers drawn for that prize.
If no ticket wins the $50 million jackpot, it will again carry over to the next draw, along with any MAXMILLIONS that are not won. However, if the $50 million jackpot is won, any MAXMILLIONS that are not won will be added on to the next jackpot, which resets to $10 million.
So far this year, B.C. has produced three LOTTO MAX jackpot winners: Kevin Bowser from Houston, B.C. split a $19 Million jackpot with Ivan Catchpaw of Abbotsford with each taking home $9.5 Million, while Derek and Frances Bird of Surrey set a new B.C. record as the richest jackpot winners in this province’s history when they claimed a $25 Million LOTTO MAX prize.
