Canada’s Lotto Max

In 1975, Parliament passed the Ontario Lottery Corporation Act – later revised at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation Act – and the first drawing was done in May of that year. From there, they have expanded on the lottery games in both regions and nationally. One of those games is Lotto Max, which was first produced in September 2009. It is currently the most popular lotto game in the country for its high earnings and easiness to play.

How To Play

It’s simple. Go to a lottery retailer for a slip and pick 7 numbers from 1 to 49. There are five games per ticket; the more games played, the more being played for the chance. For Quick Pick, the numbers are picked automatically. Then, there is combination play, where, on one ticket, eight or nine numbers can be picked out in order to be eligible for Maxmillions drawing. The 8-pick is $40 while the 9-pick is $180. Finally, there is Group Play, where people can pool money with their family and friends and each can submit tickets together where one winning ticket can be split up. Have a designated captain to manage all the numbers picked and the one who could claim the prize.

Odds & Payouts

Claiming Prizes
