Last Friday, no one came forward with the winning ticket for the LottoMax, which is currently sitting on a cool $50 million jackpot. While the main prize wasn't won, seven MaxMillion CAD$1 million winning tickets matched the seperate draw's winnings numbers, and three have come forward to claim their payout so far.
This Friday (Jan 22 2016), the draw for the LottoMax will climb to CAD$55 million, and there will be fourteen MaxMillions $1 million prizes up for grabs for those who don't win the jackpot (but still manage to match separate draw's seven winnings numbers).
Side note: MaxMillions are additional prizes paid out once the jackpot increases above $50 million, as it now has. The last big prize winner of LottoMax was won by an anonymous winner in Ontario, with a ticket that netted them CAD$60 million!
So, for all of those who've missed out on the LottoMax draw, what do you do? Our advice is to play the EuroMillions online. With a €104 million ($113 million) jackpot this coming Friday (22 January 2016), you'd be crazy to miss out on winning this huge jackpot.
With EuroMillions, there is a 1 in 116.5 million chance of matching the winning five main numbers plus the two Lucky Stars numbers. But, the overall odds of winning any prize is 1 in 13.
With Lotto Max, there is a 1 in 28 million chance of matching all seven winning numbers, but a mere 1 in 36 chance of winning a prize. So while the LottoMax odds of winning the jackpot are higher than the EuroMillions, there is far more of a chance of walking away with some sort of prize. Plus, you can visit LottosOnline and play the EuroMillions from any location.
