The Super 7 lottery now has the largest jackpot in North America at $25 million.
Our group won $10 and 5 free tickets. The jackpot was won - one winning ticket. Our group will buy 5 Super 7 tickets and redeem the 5 free tickets for the December 8 draw.
Even though the jackpot was won, the next jackpot was increased to $25 million as a bonus jackpot. Prizes that go unclaimed are used to fund bonus jackpots. This is the rule with Canadian lotteries. I do not know of any other lottery jurisdiction that awards unclaimed prizes.
I am trying to find out how many more bonus jackpots are planned for the Super 7 lottery and the size of the jackpots. I will post here when I find out.
I will probably be creating a new lottery group if the December 15 jackpot is $30 million or more. Let me know if there is anyone out there interested in joining the new group.
