A winning set of numbers for the LOTTO MAX Main Draw entitles a winner to a prize in only one of the above prize categories.

* Per $5 play (approximate).

Forty-eight per cent of LOTTO MAX Draw sales are dedicated to the Prize Fund. The total amount of $20 and Free Play prizes is paid from the Priz e Fund, and the balance of the fund (the Pools Fund) is then allocated to the 5/7, 6/7, 6/7 + Bonus and 7/7 prize categories as indicated in the table above. If there is more than one winner in the 5/7, 6/7, 6/7 + Bonus and 7/7 prize categories, the prize in that category will be shared among the winners in that category. Any amount not won in the 7/7, 6/7 + Bonus prize, 6/7 or 5/7 categories is added to the 7/7 prize category for the next draw.

MAXMILLIONS DRAW
Matches Win Odds of Winning*
7/7 $1,000,000 1 in 28,633,528

When the amount of the 7/7 prize category for LOTTO MAX is at or above $50 million, a 7/7 Cap for the Main Jackpot is established. Each $1 million in excess of the 7/7 Cap is drawn as a separate $1 million MAXMILLIONS prize. The maximum 7/7 Cap for the Main Jackpot is $60 million. For each MAXMILLIONS Draw, seven numbers are drawn from among all numbers from 1 to 49. Players must match all seven numbers drawn to win a MAXMILLIONS prize. If there is more than one winner in a MAXMILLIONS Draw, the MAXMILLIONS prize will be shared among the winners in that draw.

Any excess of the 7/7 prize category for any given draw over the 7/7 Cap, less all $1 million MAXMILLIONS prizes available for that draw, will be added to the 6/7 + Bonus prize category for such draw or, if the 6/7 + Bonus prize category is not won, will be added to the Main Jackpot prize of the next draw. Any amount not won in a MAXMILLIONS Draw(s) is added to the 7/7 prize category of the next draw.

Example 1: The 7/7 Cap is established at $50 million. Amount of the 7/7 prize category reaches $55,500,000.

  • 7/7 prize category in the Main Jackpot capped at $50 million.
  • Five MAXMILLIONS Draws of $1 million each.
  • $500,000 added to the 6/7 + Bonus prize category of the Main Jackpot.

Example 2: The 7/7 Cap is established at $55 million. Amount of the 7/7 prize category reaches $59,250,000.

  • 7/7 prize category in the Main Jackpot capped at $55 million.
  • Four MAXMILLIONS Draws of $1 million each.
  • $250,000 added to the 6/7 + Bonus prize category of the Main Jackpot.

Example 3: Amount of the 7/7 prize category is less than $50 million.

  • There are no MAXMILLIONS Draws.

The prize pool for the LOTTO MAX Main Jackpot and MAXMILLIONS Draw(s) is based on a pari-mutuel share. A pari-mutuel share is a calculation in which the total monies allocated to a prize category are divided by the total number of winners in that category. Sometimes, customers select certain number combinations more often than other number combinations, which may result in a greater number of winning tickets and a lower prize share. Some of the more popular combinations are based on sequences of numbers, vertical, horizontal or diagonal lines on selection slips, multiples of numbers, variations of historic dates or birth dates, etc. These combinations vary from draw to draw and change depending on customer play patterns.
