How to Play Lotto Max

Players pay CA$5 per ticket and pick their first set of seven numbers from 1 to 49, with the last two sets being randomly selected by the lottery terminal. They can also have all three sets of numbers randomly generated for them if they choose.

Hereís how it works:

Winning Tier Prize (Percentage of Prize Pool) Odds of Winning Per CA$5 Play
Match 7 of 7 89.25 percent 1 in 28,633,528
Match 6 of 7 + Bonus Ball 3.15 percent 1 in 4,090,504
Match 6 of 7 3.35 percent 1 in 99,768
Match 5 of 7 4.25 percent 1 in 1,584
Match 4 of 7 CAD $20 1 in 71.3
Match 3 of 7 + Bonus Ball CAD $20 1 in 76.7
Match 3 of 7 Free Play 1 in 8.1

Overall odds of winning any Lotto Max prize on a $5 play are 1 in 6.6.

Max Millions

If the Lotto Max jackpot exceeds CA$50 million, an exciting addition to the game is triggered. Called MAXMILLIONS, these draws are separate to the regular Lotto Max draw and offer extra prizes of CA$1 million in a number of special drawings in which players are entered using the numbers on their original Lotto Max ticket.

Lottery officials will set the jackpot at a fixed amount as well as announcing a minimum number of MAXMILLIONS draws, which can increase if ticket sales allow. This can continue until the Lotto Max jackpot reaches a possible cap of CA$60 million, with the number of MAXMILLIONS draws increasing each time.

The Lotto Max jackpot will stay capped at the amount set by lottery officials for each draw until it is won, with extra ticket sales revenue creating even more MAXMILLIONS draws. This means that multiple people will have the chance to win big cash prizes!

If there is more than one MAXMILLIONS winner in a single draw, then the prize is equally distributed among all the winning players.

If the jackpot is not won at the cap in the main Lotto Max drawing, then any MAXMILLIONS prizes that arenít won are carried over to the next one. If someone wins the Lotto Max jackpot, then the MAXMILLIONS prizes not matched are added to the next minimum Lotto Max top prize of CA$10 million.

The odds of winning a MAXMILLIONS prize are the same as for winning the Lotto Max jackpot - 1 in 28,633,528.

Claiming Lotto Max Prizes

Lotto Max prizes worth CA$1,000 or less can be claimed at authorized lottery retailers, but keep in mind that retailers need to have the cash on hand in order to pay you! Prizes worth more than CA$200 may have to be redeemed at a prize office in your province or territory if the retailer canít pay you more than that amount. Always check with lottery officials in your province or territory before redeeming a prize, as its value may affect how you make your claim.

The Fine Print

Youíll need to be at least 19 years old to play Lotto Max through the Atlantic Lottery Corporation and the British Columbia Lottery Corporation. Players who buy Lotto Max tickets through the Quebec Lottery, the Ontario Lottery Group and the Western Canada Lottery will need to be at least 18 years old.
