22 People Just Got A Whole Lot Richer In Ontario After Last Night's Lotto Max Draw

There were six major encore prize winners too!

After much anticipation, someone in Toronto has finally claimed half of the Lotto Max $70 million draw, along with many other big wins around the province.

Two winners were just announced after eight long weeks of unsuccessful draws. One of the jackpot tickets was sold to someone in Toronto, who now has $35 million to their name, while the other was in British Columbia. But, that's not the only big news from this record-breaking lottery.

Lotto Max told Narcity that 21 of the 46 winning tickets sold across Canada were in Ontario. Prizes of $1 million were won by ticket holders in Kingston, Windsor, Thunder Bay, St. Catharines, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Toronto, and North York.

Mississauga, Milton, Windsor, Grey County, and Simcoe County sold winning tickets of $500,000. There were five winners of $333,333 in Burlington, Kitchener, Scarborough, Milton, and Sault Ste. Marie.

Six encore prize winners in Etobicoke, Thornhill, Chatham-Kent, Welland, Woodbridge, and Simcoe County won $100,000 each.

The next Lotto Max draw is coming up on June 25 with an estimated $50 million grand prize.

A record-breaking jackpot

This Lotto Max draw shattered records by offering a total of $140 million of grand prizes.

It took eight weeks before the winning numbers were drawn, causing the total amount of jackpot prizes to reach the highest they have been in Canada multiple times in a row.

The two tickets that split the $70 million had the winning numbers of 7, 11, 22, 28, 33, 44, 49 and bonus 10.
