Imagine starting the summer by being $70 million richer?

The total prize pool for Tuesday’s Lotto Max draw will be a whopping $70 million, according to Loto-QuĂ©bec, along with 47 additional $1 million prizes.

Therefore, the total prize money for this week’s draw is $117 million big ones.

The previous record set for a Lotto Max jackpot was in October 2018, when it totalled $116 million and consisted of a $60,000,000 jackpot and 56 Maxmillions prizes.

“This is the 7th time the Lotto Max jackpot has hit its cap of $70,000,000 since the lottery game’s revamp in May 2019,” says the crown corporation’s press release. “Actually, Quebecers have been lucky with this lottery game, as two of the six $70,000,000 jackpots won in 2020 were won in Quebec,” says Isabelle Jean, president of Lotto Max Operations.

Millionaire-hopefuls can buy tickets in-store or online.

Each play costs $5 and consists of three selections of seven numbers from 1 to 50.

If you do end up striking gold and winning big, don’t forget who steered you in the right direction leading up to Tuesday’s big loot.

The Canada-wide lottery has jackpot-winning odds of 1 in 33,294,800. But, considering how the last 14 months have gone, is anything really impossible?
