Nobody Won The Lotto Max $70 Million & The Record-Breaking Jackpot Has Soared Once Again

A historic $128 million in prizes can be won in the next draw.

There was no Lotto Max winner for the $70 million jackpot on June 11, so the next draw will offer yet another record-breaking amount of prizes to be won.

Just like the previous two draws, the June 15 prize has broken the record for the biggest lottery jackpot ever offered in the history of Canada.

A total of $128 million is up for grabs now, including a grand prize jackpot of $70 million and 58 Maxmillions that are worth $1 million each.

If you haven't checked your tickets for the Lotto Max draw on June 11, there's still a chance you could be getting some cash. While the jackpot wasn't won, 20 Maxmillions were snagged by Canadians all over the country.

According to Loto-Québec, the odds of winning the jackpot with a single play are about one in 33 million, but the odds of winning anything with just one ticket are one in seven. Tickets are sold until 10:30 p.m. ET on draw nights.

What were the other record-breaking Lotto Max jackpots up for grabs recently?

The Lotto Max prize pool reached $120 million for the June 11 draw, which made it the biggest lottery jackpot in Canadian history. There were 50 Maxmillions worth $1 million each in addition to the $70 million jackpot available to be won.

A couple of days earlier, the June 8 draw offered what was then a record-breaking $117 million in prizes, which included the $70 million grand prize and 47 Maxmillions.

Before this string of consecutive record-breaking prizes, the last time lottery history was made in Canada was in October 2018, when the Lotto Max total soared to $116 million because of the $60 million jackpot and 56 Maxmillions.
