Canada's Lotto Max now at $81 million in top prizes

Canada Lotto MaxCanada Lotto Max: Canada's Lotto Max now at $81 million in top prizes

Estimated 31 MaxMillions $1 million draws coming Friday

By Todd Northrop

For the third straight week, lottery players across Canada will take their chances at a $50 million main jackpot and a rising number of $1 million MaxMillions bonus drawings.

On Friday night, no tickets matched the seven numbers drawn to win the $50 million main jackpot, so the upcoming Lotto Max draw for Friday, March 11 will remain at an estimated $50 million with an additional estimated 31 $1 million MaxMillions prizes up for grabs, bringing the total prize amount to $81 million.

Friday night there were 22 MaxMillions bonus draws, each worth $1 million.  All of the MaxMillion bonus draw winning numbers, plus the lottery results for the main drawing, are published on Lottery Post's Lotto Max with MaxMillions for March 4, 2011 page.

Nine of the 22 bonus draws were winners, with three of those winning tickets split by two winning tickets.

When Lotto Max is in MaxMillions mode, consumers will see the green 'plus' symbol at retailers and in advertising. This indicates that the Lotto Max jackpot is estimated at $50 million plus the number of additional MaxMillions draws that are also estimated.

MaxMillions prizes are drawn separately from the Lotto Max jackpot draw, which means that a Lotto Max ticket not only gives players a chance at $50 million but also the chance to win any of the $1 million MaxMillions draws on the same date.

Tickets for the upcoming drawing are available at official lottery retailers until approximately 9 p.m. Eastern Time on Friday, March 11.

    it's all a big scam. build the pot..drive everyone into a frenzy. no winner...drive everyone into a frenzy. more tickets. repeat the frenzy part. i know if u don't have a ticket you can't win. but what's with all the carry overs? i'd love to be a fly on the wall in the computer room.

      I forget, does Canada take out any taxes on lottery winnings?

          i got a pal to buy me some, pretty pricey, $5 to pick your own line, then you get 2 extra lines  drawn random.

          but the checking your ticket against 19 winning lines was kind of fun. pulled a free ticket. ill see if they will hold it until theres another mega jackpot.

          2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

          keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

            Lump sum wins are tax free!

            We do have some games that pay out as an annuity though such as Cash for Life and Millionaire Life and taxes are payable on annuities.

            (Annuities pay a certain amount every year for a certain number of years, you get a lump sum payment all at once)

            When I win The Big One I will definitely request the lump sum option!
