In need of some extra cash?

On Friday, October 4, a $65 million Lotto Max jackpot will be up for grabs — if the winner hails from beautiful British Columbia, it’d make history as the largest lottery jackpot in the province.

In July, Joseph Katalinic, a retired fisherman from Richmond, won the $60 million draw, the largest prize ever awarded in the province.

Should the prize go unclaimed, the next Lotto Max draw, taking place on Tuesday, October 8, will be a record-setting $70 million — the largest-ever in Canada.

According to BCLC, British Columbians have claimed $181 million in Lotto Max prizes in 2019.

Tickets are available for purchase online or at authorized retailers until 7:30 pm PT on the date of the draw.
