Lottery Security And Results
As with all lotto games in Canada Lotto Max is organized by the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation. The ILC has been in operation since 1976 and has a long-standing reputation for ensuring fair gaming practices nationwide. On November 6, 2009 Lotto Max produced a $50 Million winner when a single ticket in Manitoba correctly matched all of the numbers.
Lotto Max was launched on September 19, 2009 and replaced the old national Lotto Super 7. The previous game had been around for fifteen years and the lottery commission decided to come up with something even more exciting. The first drawing took place on September 25th of the same year and with all of the rollovers the first multi-million dollar grand prize was finally claimed in November. Proceeds from Lotto Max are distributed in the provinces in which the tickets were purchased. Each province gets to decide where the funds are used and the majority go toward charitable local causes.
Every Friday night lottery players tune in to watch the live televised Lotto Max drawing. In a matter of seconds they could be the next multi-millionaire. The drawing starts out at a life-changing $10 Million and with rollovers being fairly common the sky is truly the limit!
