Your dreams of being a millionaire could become true this weekend as Lotto Max is offering another record-breaking estimated $112 million in top prizes.

Lotto Max fans across Canada have the chance to win this week’s estimated $60 million record-breaking main jackpot and an additional estimated 52 Maxmillion prizes of $1 million each.

For those unfamiliar with the Lotto Max system, the draws are held every Friday night.

Tickets cost $5 with three chances to win. A player will receive three sets of seven numbers ranging from one to forty-nine.

To win the jackpot or a Maxmillions prize, players must match seven out of seven numbers.

According to the BCLC, the odds of winning any prize are actually rather attainable, being one in 6.6 per play (15%).

The odds of winning the jackpot or a Maxmillions prize, however, are of course exponentially smaller. For every play, a person has a one in 28,633,528 chance of winning.

The draw will take place at 7:30 pm PST on Friday.
