Imagine starting the weekend and stepping into the first official week of summer with $ 140 million more.
As no one has won the big $ 70 million Lotto Max draw, the record jackpot is postponed for the third week in a row.
As such, Friday’s jackpot will be worth a jaw-dropping $ 140 million – the $ 70 million jackpot plus 70 $ 1 million prizes.
According to Lotto Max, 34 Maxmillions ($ 1 million each) were won in British Columbia, the Prairies, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces.
The previous record set for a Lotto Max jackpot was in October 2018, when he totaled $ 116 million, composed of a $ 60,000,000 jackpot and 56 Maxmillions prizes.
According to the crown corporation, this is the eighth time that the Lotto Max jackpot has reached its cap of $ 70,000,000 since the game overhaul in May 2019.
Millionaires can buy tickets in-store or online.
The Canada-wide lottery draws take place every two weeks, Tuesday and Friday.
Each coin costs $ 5 and consists of three selections of seven numbers from 1 to 50.

The Canada-Wide Lottery has a chance of winning the jackpot of 1 in 33,294,800. But, looking at how the last 14 months have unfolded, is anything really impossible?
