TORONTO -- There is one winning ticket for the $60 million jackpot in Friday night's Lotto Max draw, and it was sold in the Toronto area.
The grand prize is the largest in Lotto Max history and lottery officials say the winning ticket was sold in Brampton, Ont.
There were also 27 Maxmillions prizes of $1 million each up for grabs, and 15 of them were won.
There are a total of 19 winning Maxmillions tickets -- six were sold in Ontario, five in Quebec, five in the Prairies and three in the Atlantic provinces.
The jackpot for next Friday's Lotto Max draw will be approximately $22 million.
The last major Lotto Max jackpot worth $50 million was won on Aug. 7 by a ticket sold in Alberta.
The largest grand prize of any Canadian lottery remains the $63.4 million Lotto 6-49 jackpot in April 2013 that was shared by four winners.
