Canada LottoMax› LottoMax
The Canada Lotto Max requires players to match seven numbers from a possible 49 in order to win the jackpot. A total of eight numbers are drawn, with the final number acting as the Bonus Ball. The Bonus Ball enables players who have matched six or three main numbers to win bigger prizes. There are seven prize tiers on offer in the game.
Canada Lotto Max has a starting jackpot of CA$10 million, which rolls over should no player match all seven main numbers drawn. However, there is a jackpot cap of CA$60 million, which means that the top prize cannot exceed this figure.
If the jackpot reaches CA$50 million, a new game called MAXMILLIONS comes into play. MAXMILLIONS offers additional individual prizes worth CA$1 million for every million in the jackpot prize pool above CA$50 million. Any additional jackpot funds under CA$1 million would be added to the second tier prize pool.
Each MAXMILLIONS prize has its own separate draw and also requires players to match seven numbers from a possible 49 in order to win. Unlike the Lotto Max, there are no secondary prizes. MAXMILLIONS prizes that are not won rollover to the next Lotto Max draw, which means that subsequent games can offer a number of incredible CA$1 million payouts.
MAXMILLIONS continues to be played until the Lotto Max jackpot million is won. Once this top prize has been won, any remaining MAXMILLIONS prizes will be added to the base jackpot for the following draw.

Canada Lotto Max History
The first Canada Lotto Max draw took place in September 2009 and has continued to be drawn every Friday ever since. Lotto Max replaced the Lotto Super 7, played since June 1994, and offered bigger jackpot prizes and a slightly different format, although players were still required to match seven numbers to win the jackpot.
The most valuable draw in Canada Lotto Max history took place in July 2012 when there were fifty CA$1 million MAXMILLIONS prizes on offer in addition to the CA$50 million jackpot. The Lotto Max jackpot was won by a single player and seventeen of the fifty MAXMILLIONS prizes were won. The remaining thirty-three prizes were added to the following week’s jackpot, which meant that there was CA$43 million on offer instead of the usual starting jackpot of CAD$10 million.
In July 2015, the Lotto Max jackpot cap was raised from CA$50 million to CA$60 million. However, lottery officials can cap the jackpot at any point from CA$50 million to CA$60 million and bring MAXMILLIONS into effect to create additional prizes of $1 million each.
