Canada Lotto Max
Tickets for the Canada Lotto Max game first went on sale in September 2009 with the first draw taking place on 25th of the same month. The Canada Lotto Max draw replaced a game that was called Lotto Super 7 whose final draw took place on 18th September 2009. The jackpot for Lotto Super 7 was substantially lower than that of its replacement with the largest ever win was of CAD £37.8 million shared by four tickets in 2002. The Interprovincial Lottery Corporation (ILC) announced the launch of Lotto Max in July 2009 just four months after announcing the final Lotto Super 7 draw date. Lotto Max draws take place every Friday evening in Ontario.
Players wishing to participate in the Lotto Max pay a set fee for which they are given three sets of numbers. For Lotto Max players can only choose their own numbers for the first set, the remaining two lines of numbers are allocated at random. The current matrix for Lotto Max is 7/49 but there is also a bonus ball drawn. The bonus ball is only used on two of the seven prize tiers – Match six main balls and the bonus - Match three main balls and the bonus.

The highest any given jackpot can be for Lotto Max is CAD $50 million. When the jackpot reaches this amount then the Maxmillions game comes into play.
Maxmillions is started when a Lotto Max jackpot hits the CAD £$50 million mark as this is the cap for the lottery. Each week that the jackpot is not won there will be extra draws for Lotto Max that produce seven numbers, each set of seven numbers offers a cash jackpot of CAD $1 million if all the numbers are matched.
When the Lotto Max jackpot is won whilst in Maxmillions mode then any money that would have been used for Maxmillions will be added to the next Lotto Max jackpot.
The numbers of Maxmillions draws each week is determined by ticket sales (additional growth of the CAD $50 million Lotto Max jackpot) and if any Maxmillions prizes are not won then they will carry forward to the next draw.
