An estimated $65 million dollars is ready to be claimed in Tuesday’s Lotto Max draw, making it the biggest lottery jackpot in Canadian history.
The previous record was a $64-million Lotto 6-49 jackpot won by a single ticket in October 2015, said the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp.
To win the jackpot, a ticket must match all seven numbers in the same set. Lotto Max players have won more than $4.8 billion since the lottery’s launch in 2009.
Tuesday’s draw will also include 10 separate $1-million prizes. Tickets can be purchased at authorized retailers or online until 10:30 p.m. on the day of the draw.
