British Columbia Lottery Corporation: LOTTO MAX Worth $30 Million Jan. 1, 2010

RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 30, 2009) - The LOTTO MAX jackpot on New Year's Day will be approximately $30 million. Draws are held on Friday nights, and the next draw will be held January 1, 2010. 

"The best part about holding a ticket for a big jackpot is dreaming up ways you might spend the money if you win," says Kevin Gass, BCLC Vice President of Corporate Affairs. "It would be great to see a B.C. resident win a large LOTTO MAX prize."

If there is no winner on Friday, the jackpot will continue to grow. Additional MAXMILLIONS prizes are created after the $50 million mark is reached. Each MAXMILLIONS prize will be worth one million dollars.

LOTTO MAX game details:

  • Players receive three chances to win (seven numbers each) per $5 play
  • In order to win a jackpot, players must match 7/7 numbers (from one to 49)
  • Odds of winning a jackpot are one in 28.6 million per play
  • Odds of winning any prize are one in 6.6 per play

LOTTO MAX can be played at BCLC retail locations across the province. Winning numbers will be published as quickly as possible following each draw. MAXMILLIONS prizes will require some extra time for the additional draws to be held.
