Lotto Max Jackpot Finally WonWednesday July 11th 2012
The Lotto Max has been rolling over since the end of May, so play numbers were at an all-time high for this week’s draw, with one lucky winner finally scooping the big prize in the draw on Friday, 6th July 2012. The winning numbers were 14, 26, 31, 34, 37, 45, 48 and Bonus Ball 38. As well as the jackpot winner, who as yet is unnamed but from the Quebec area, three people matched 6 and the bonus ball, scooping $369,267 each. Out of the 50 $1 million Maxmillion prizes, a total of 17 were won by 21 ticket holders.
This was one of the biggest played Lotto Max games ever, with a massive 242,402 and 223,561 ticket holders respectively winning $20 by matching 4 or 3 and the bonus. Clearly a lot of people wanted to be in with a chance of scooping that $50 million jackpot or one of the Maxmillion $1 million prizes.
However, with the current prize jackpot for next week’s draw already resting at $43 million, thanks to the Maxmillion rollovers, it is highly likely that the jackpot will reach that $50 million barrier in time for next week’s draw, so this week is a great week to try to strike it lucky again if you missed out last week.
The next draw takes place on Friday 13th July 2012, so let’s hope that date proves lucky for you and buy your ticket now!
