Well Victoria, are you feeling lucky? Perhaps 2020 is the year!
For the first time ever in Lotto Max history, a massive $70 million jackpot is up for grabs in Friday night’s draw, and someone from the island could start off their 2020 by winning the record-breaking prize.
In addition to the massive jackpot, there are an estimated 10 Maxmillion prizes being offered, meaning there are $80 million in top prizes to be won.
The $70-million jackpot is up for grabs for the first time since Lotto Max enhancements were introduced in May 2019. In addition to increasing the maximum jackpot to $70 million, a second draw on Tuesdays was added.
In 2019, B.C. lottery players claimed a record-breaking $785 million in winnings, with over $230 million from Lotto Max prizes.
