If simply buying a lot of tickets will win a lottery jackpot then there may be a LP member in a group that won a lottery soon.  Good luck Amazing Grace

    Good luck Amazing Grace and good luck to my new group. We will be buying $1,000 worth of Super 7 tickets. That is a total of 1,500 lines. RJOh, I hope you are right and an LP member wins as part of a group. We certainly have enough tickets on the next draw.

    Does anyone know if the next Super 7 draw will be for $35 million even if the April 28 draw is won?

      Hard to say. I'm sure it depends on sales. The record pot for Super 7 is 37 million. I would guess this was listed as 35 million. When 6/49 was listed as having a $40 million pot the actual pot ended up being over 50 million. Super 7 might not have the sales that 6/49 does. I don't think sales will really take off unless it can break 40 million.

        I repeat my question since dvdiva did not understand it. Will there be another Super 7 bonus draw? The Ontario lottery office either did not know or would not tell me.

        Thanks.

          I would doubt they would hold a $35M bonus draw if there is a winner at $30M but who knows. They had a winner at $17M but the next prize was 20. Hard to say where it's going. I wasn't aware that the $20 million was a bonus pot. Usually bonus pots are for that pot only. I know I might get tickets at 35 and if it can hit 40 I definately will.

                    I can't believe it rolled. It's now $35M CN or $31M US. This combined with the steep discount trips to Canada a local outfit is doing means I'm going to get tickets.

                      I wished I was closer to the border, I would love to buy a few tickets for the drawing.

                        What I don't understand is that there was a winner at $30M yet now its $35M. Don't get me wrong I don't care how it gets big. I just love the fact that people keep winning yet the prize keeps getting bigger. Maybe that's why the prize only grows at 5M per draw. It might have gone up faster if no one won. I guess that's the difference with US games. In the US somene wins - prize gets small. Then you wait for many rollovers so you can get tickets again. In Canada someone wins, the prize gets bigger and you just get tickets for the next drawing.

                        340 people missed by one number on this drawing. 210 people on the drawing before this. One winner in Quebec. Maybe they skim the prize and add it to the next rollover. If so it's very clever if they make a profit on it. Someone could hit 35 then the next pot is 40.

                          So someone won the jackpot at 30million and it got bumped up? That's strange. I always thought once a jackpot was won that it went back to the starting point.

                            Looking at the history of this run the prize in order has been 35, 30, 25, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10, 5, 2.5

                            There have been one or more winners of the jackpot at these levels 30M (1), 17M (1),  15M (2).

                              The reason the jackpot went up after a win is because it is a BONUS jackpot. Money not claimed after one year is placed in a bonus pool to be given out with promotions and bonus jackpots.

                              My understanding is that US lotteries keep unclaimed money. This is why I love Canadian lotteries even though I do play US lotteries when the jackpots are large.

                              This is the reason why, earlier in this thread, I asked if the next jackpot was going to be $35 million. I see now why some people did not understand the question - they did not know about bonus jackpots.
