This week’s Lotto Max draw is another big one.
After no one matched all seven numbers last week, there’s still an estimated $70 million jackpot during this Friday’s draw.
An astounding 39 Maximillions prizes are also available.
Jackpots only get this big when unclaimed money carries over to the next round, giving Canadians a rare shot to make a ton of dough in one shot.
The nationwide lottery has two weekly jackpots that start at $10 million and go up to $70 million. Maximillions start when the Lotto Max Jackpot reaches at least $50 million.
Canada has had a great lotto month, with several players cashing in.
A Burnaby couple celebrated a $6 million win on March 22 in BC, and a Toronto man took home $30 million, to name a couple.
