“Thanks to a brand-new Tuesday draw added to the Friday draw, Lotto Max players will see jackpots grow more quickly than ever,” said a news release. “What’s more, the main Lotto Max jackpot can now grow as large as $70 million – a jackpot offering not yet seen in Canada.”

There is no change to the cost of a Lotto Max ticket, which remains $5 for three selections of seven numbers.

The main jackpot for the Tuesday, May 14 Lotto Max draw is estimated at $17 million.

Lotto Max was introduced in 2009 with a maximum jackpot of $50 million. In 2015, the maximum jackpot was increased to $60 million. Since its launch, Lotto Max players across Canada have won over $11 billion, including 116 jackpot wins and 1,021 Maxmillionsprizes.
