Lotto Max is breaking records on its brand-new draw night! On Tuesday, June 11, the Lotto Max main jackpot is estimated at $65 million. The draw will also offer an estimated 10 Maxmillions – individual draws for prizes of $1 million each.
This is the first time the main Lotto Max jackpot has ever reached $65 million since the Canada-wide lottery game debuted almost 10 years ago. Until last month, the highest a Lotto Max jackpot could reach was $60 million. Changes in May 2019 now allow the main jackpot to grow as high as $70 million.
Prior to the June 11 draw, the biggest jackpot ever on a Canadian lottery game was $64 million, offered on Lotto 6/49 in October 2015.
The changes also added a second weekly Lotto Max draw; the game is now drawn on Tuesdays as well as Fridays. If tomorrow’s $65 million main jackpot is won, it will be the first ever won on a Tuesday night draw.
Lotto Max tickets for this record-breaking draw can be purchased until 8:30 pm on Tuesday evening.
