Jackpot and Maxmillions

The jackpot starts at $10,000,000 and, if not won, grows by at least $5,000,000 per draw up to the maximum jackpot of $50,000,000. If the amount of the 7/7 pool exceeds $50,000,000, the excess is first divided into additional prizes of $1,000,000 (these prizes are called Maxmillions). The difference is added to the 6/7+B pool.

For example: If the calculated amount of the 7/7 pool reaches $56,214,000, on top of the $50,000,000 jackpot, 6 additional selections (Maxmillions) will be drawn, each allowing to win a prize of $1,000,000. Each selection is not decomposable and the prizes are shared amongst the winners. The remaining amount of $214,000 would be added to the 6/7+B pool.

If the $50,000,000 jackpot is not won, the Maxmillions that were not won are added to those of the next draw. If the $50,000,000 jackpot is won, the Maxmillions that were not won are added to the jackpot pool for the next draw. The jackpot for that draw will then be $10,000,000 + the Maxmillions that were not won.

Starting with the draw of July 17, 2015, changes will be made to Lotto Max. For more details, click here.

Draw procedure

The main draw is conducted using a single ball machine containing balls numbered from 1 to 49. Eight balls are drawn at random from the ball machine. The first 7 balls form the winning selection and the 8th ball represents the bonus number.

In the event Maxmillions are also offered, the draw for each of these prizes is conducted using an electronic ball machine based on a random number generator.

Changes starting with the draw of July 17, 2015

  • The jackpot cap will increase from $50,000,000 to $60,000,000
  • Maxmillions ($1 million prizes) will continue to be offered once the jackpot reaches $50 million. The number of Maxmillions will also increase if the jackpot is not won, but the increase will be slower than it is currently. For example, if the jackpot is not won, the offering could increase from $50M + 2 Maxmillions to $55M + 4 Maxmillions, then to $60M + 6 Maxmillions.
  • The percentages of the Pools fund attributed to the categories 7/7, 6/7 + B, 6/7 and 5/7 will be modified. These changes are minor and will have little impact on the prizes which vary from a draw to another. The new prize structure will be as follows:

***Note that there is no change to the odds of winning.
The bonus number is indicated with the "+B" symbol.

  • The cost will still be of $5 for 1 play (comprised of 3 selections)
  • The theoretical payoff rate will stay at 48%
