Jackpot Alert: LOTTO MAX Jackpot Could Be Best Gift of All

$50 Million Jackpot + Estimated 2 'MAXMILLIONS' on December 23, 2011 Draw

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 20, 2011) - The holiday season may be extra jolly for lottery players with an estimated $50 Million jackpot available to be won on Friday's LOTTO MAX draw.

Every $5 LOTTO MAX ticket sold for the December 23 draw offers players three chances to win the $50 Million jackpot plus an estimated 2 MAXMILLION prizes of $1 million each.

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.

Last year, a 72-year-old Pitt Meadows, B.C. man won $3.2 million after matching his numbers on a Christmas Day Lotto 6/49 ticket.


  • Jackpot draws held every Friday night
  • Each $5 ticket features three chances to win
  • Players must match 7/7 numbers to win the jackpot


  • When a jackpot reaches $50 Million, additional ticket sales fund additional prizes of $1 Million called MAXMILLIONS
  • Each MAXMILLION prize is drawn separately, following the main draw
  • Players must match 7/7 numbers to win the corresponding MAXMILLION

LOTTO MAX can be played at your favourite local lottery retailer and at www.PlayNow.com. Winning numbers can be found at www.bclc.com.
