The Lotto Max Jackpot Just Got Even Bigger & This Is Ridiculous Now

$140 million in prizes are being offered! 🥵

Since there was no Lotto Max winner selected for the June 15 draw, the next one will offer yet another record-breaking jackpot of prizes for Canadians to win.

For the draw on June 18, a total of $140 million is up for grabs. The prizes that are available are the $70 million grand prize jackpot and 70 Maxmillions which are each worth $1 million.

Just like the last three draws, this one has broken a record and is the biggest lottery jackpot ever offered in Canada. Lotto Max has been making history recently with prizes that just won't stop rising. In the past couple of weeks, the jackpot has reached $117 million, $120 million and $128 million in consecutive draws.

If you want to try your chances at winning with this massive pool of cash, tickets will be sold until 10:30 p.m. ET on June 18. Your chance of winning the jackpot with one play is about 1 in 33 million.

Plenty of winning Maxmillions tickets were also sold

The Lotto Max jackpot keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger, but that doesn't mean people aren't winning money. In fact, 34 Maxmillions were won in the June 15 draw, going to people all across the country.

A whopping 20 winning Maxmillions tickets were sold in Ontario. Two $1 million tickets were won in Brampton, while others were also won in Mississauga, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Burlington, Halton Region, Niagara Region and Renfrew County.

A few other winning tickets were shared with another ticket sold in Canada, which means some people in Mississauga, Brantford, York, Simcoe County and Huron County won half a million each.

Elsewhere in Canada, eight winning Maxmillions tickets were sold in Quebec, five were sold in the prairies, eight were sold in B.C., and one lucky ticket was sold in Atlantic Canada.
