It took 20 draws for someone to take home the $70 million Lotto Max winning ticket.
While someone in Calgary took home this massive win, life-changing money was still being won across the country — especially for Ontario Lotto Max players.
“Sixty-three (63) sets of MaxMillions numbers were drawn last night and 28 were won or shared across Canada,” said a statement from OLG.
Six Ontarians have become “max millionaires” after claiming to have won tickets worth $1 million each.
Those tickets were sold in Nepean and the rest were bought in Vaughan, Kitchener, Niagara Region and Kingston.
Meanwhile, four MaxMillions winning tickets worth $500,000 were sold in:
- Dufferin/Peel Region (shared with ticket sold in Western Canada)
- St. Catharines (shared with ticket sold in Quebec)
- Brampton (shared with ticket sold in BC)
- Toronto (shared with ticket sold in Quebec)
A BC ticket holder and someone in Quebec share one MaxMillions winning ticket worth $333,333.40.
Another who bought a ticket in Brampton, Ontario won a Lotto Max second prize ticket worth $274,059.80.
Ontario had the most MaxMillions winning tickets from the draw – eleven.
