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.Lotto Max – Play this Loto-Québec draw game online and at retailers. Announced jackpot starting at minimum $10,000,000. Draw each Tuesday and Friday. View draw results here.
HOW TO PLAY
We’ve all imagined a lottery win. It could be the chance of a lifetime to win a massive jackpot by matching a set of numbers to those drawn.
What’s it all about? The luck of the draw.
The Object of the Game
To win a draw-based lottery, the numbers you pick must match some of the numbers drawn. When you buy your ticket, select a set of numbers, or a “line”. A line can be a set of five to seven numbers, ranging from 1 to 45, or 1 to 50, depending on the game.
The more numbers on one line you match to the draw numbers, the more you could win.
To win the jackpot, all your numbers must match the numbers drawn.
Breaking Down a Lottery Ticket
Here’s what you need to know about the ticket for the games you choose to play.
A. The Game: This is the spot on the ticket that tells you which of the draw-based lottery games it’s for. Learn more about each game here.
B. The Draw: When’s the draw? This will show the date.
C. The Price: How much is the ticket? This will show the price.
D. The Line: This section is your “line” of numbers. Pick them yourself or let the lottery terminal generate random numbers for you.
However you pick your numbers, they all have an equal chance of winning.
E. Encore. This section of the ticket shows 2 things:
1) If you added Encore to your purchase, it will say, “Encore Played”
2) Your separate set of Encore numbers for the Encore draw. Learn more about Encore here.
F. Ticket number
G. Signature line: In order to claim a prize, you must sign your ticket
H. Barcode: To see if you won, scan the barcode on your ticket using the ticket checker at a participating retailer; ask the retailer to scan the barcode at a lottery terminal; or use the OLG Lottery App. Learn more here.

You choose your numbers on a paper selection slip provided at participating retailers. Simply select the required amount of numbers for each play in the game you’re playing. The slip has “boards” to fill in to complete your play; one board determines your line.
