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.

These two Ontario friends have won the $70 million Lotto Max jackpot

David Overall joked that he and friend Donna Williamson were just hoping to win $20 to continue their “short-term investment strategy” when they bought their winning ticket for last month’s Lotto Max draw.

“Donna actually used our last free play to get the ticket,” Overall, a 63-year-old from Oakville, Ont. who works in the grocery industry, said in a news release issued on Friday.

Williamson, a 60-year-old retired finance employee from Thornhill, Ont., explained that the pair has been playing the lottery as a group for the past 10 years and that it was her turn to buy a ticket that week.

“I considered buying a couple extra for my household, but I decided against it, because it only takes one ticket to win,” laughed Williamson.

“I sent David an email with a scan of our ticket and a caption that said, ‘Here are the numbers for the $70 million. Yabba dabba doo!” Williamson added.

Following the draw on July 31, Williamson said she checked their numbers against those posted online.

She said she was celebrating with each matching number, but began to wonder if she was imagining things once she saw five matching numbers.

Williamson said she called Overall to tell him that they were the sole winners of the $70 million, to which he responded “get out!”

The pair says that the event “still doesn’t feel real,” with Williamson saying she is unsure how to process “something like this.”

“Of all the things that are on my list of major life events, winning the lottery was not one of them. It’s on a whole other level,” she said.

Looking to the future, Overall says he plans to take some time with his family to settle into their “new reality” before making any big decisions, though he admits that the purchase of a cottage may be in his future.

Similarly, Williamson says she hasn’t actually had a chance to think about the future too much, but explains that she wants to travel more when it’s safe.

According the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, this is only the second time in which a $70 million prize has been awarded in Ontario.
