CALGARY — The winning numbers for Friday night’s $70M Lotto Max jackpot did not come up for anyone, but two tickets sold in Alberta have each won $1 million.

The numbers drawn for Lotto Max, according to the Western Canada Lottery Corporation’s website, were: 3, 9, 10, 14, 15, 19, 20 with a bonus number of 25.

The closest anyone came in the entire country to winning the big prize was one player in Saskatchewan, who won $801,281.30 by matching six of the seven numbers plus the bonus.

Two tickets sold in Alberta did hit it big though, winning $1 million each in the 27 MAXMILLIONS prizes draw.

MAXMILLIONS prizes are added to each draw when the main jackpot exceeds $50 million.

The winning numbers in Alberta were:

  • 1, 9, 10, 21, 34, 37 and 40
  • 13, 19, 33, 37, 40, 41 and 50

There are no details about where the tickets were sold other than they were outside the province’s major centres.

Last week, four winning MAXMILLIONS tickets were sold in Alberta, with two of those being bought in the City of Calgary.

The winning numbers for Friday night’s $70M Lotto Max jackpot did not come up for anyone, but two tickets sold in Alberta have each won $1 million.

Jackpot and Maxmillions

The jackpot starts at $10,000,000 and, if not won, increases at each draw for a maximum jackpot of $70,000,000.

Maxmillions (prizes of $1,000,000) are offered when the jackpot reaches $50,000,000. Notably, when the amount of the 7/7 pool for any given draw exceeds $50,000,000, it shall be capped at an amount set between $50,000,000 and $70,000,000 inclusive (the “7/7 pool cap”), and the excess is divided into additional prizes of $1,000,000 (Maxmillions). The difference is added to the 6/7+B pool.

For example: The advertised jackpot (the 7/7 pool cap) is set at $50,000,000. If the 7/7 pool reaches $52,214,000, on top of the $50,000,000 jackpot, two Maxmillions will be drawn. The remaining amount of $214,000 would be added to the 6/7+B pool.

If the $50M jackpot is not won, the Maxmillions that were not won are added to those of the next draw. Thus, if the 2 Maxmillions are not won, the offering could increase, for example, to $55M + 4 Maxmillions, then to $60M + 6 Maxmillions, then to $65M + 8 Maxmillions, and finally, to $70M + 10 Maxmillions. If the $50M 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.

Additional selections drawn for Maxmillions prizes are not decomposable and each prize is shared amongst the winners.
