TORONTO — There will likely be more millionaires in Canada after tonight’s Lotto Max draw.
Ticket sales are brisk with a total of $70 million up for grabs in Canada’s largest-ever pool of lottery prize money.
The Lotto Max jackpot is at its maximum of $50 million, the same as last week.
But the number of Maxmillions draws that go along with the maxed-out jackpot has jumped to 20 from five last week.
That means there are 20 separate draws of $1 million.
In February, two tickets split a $50-million Lotto Max draw — one in Quebec and the other in British Columbia.
Last November, Marie Fontaine of Pine Falls, Man., pocketed a $50-million Lotto Max prize.
