Has anybody figured out how to choose numbers for the lotto max game in Canada; it is frustrating how to play this draw. I have bought quick picks also, but it is a losing gamble sometimes.. Just some ideas would be good!

    Somebody must be winning or people would stop playing.

        PICK 7 NUMBERS, from 1 to 49.
        They draw 8 numbers, the eighth number is a complimentary number.

        7 of 7Win or Share JACKPOT of at least $10 Million1 (87% of Pools Fund*)1: 28,633,528
        6 of 7+BonusShare of 4% of Pools Fund*1: 4,090,504
        6 of 7Share of 4% of Pools Fund*1: 99,768.4
        5 of 7Share of 5% of Pools Fund*1: 1,583.6
        4 of 7$20*1: 71.3
        3 of 7+Bonus$20*1: 76.7
        3 of 7Free Play (Three Quick Pick Selections)1: 8.1

        "6 of 7+bonus" means "5+C / 8", if I get this right.

        You play it like usually, quickpick or you pick numbers, you validate and pay.

        I don't like the free quickpicks, they should pay. This is against players who can or love to pick their numbers.

        5 dollars / play? How about 50 cents / play?

            this game gives you quick picks and  pick your own numbers and is high priced, its a monster. i would only play when its ha real high jackpot, and there are garunteed 20+ millionaires as they also do 20x 7 extra numbers that have to all be matched to win 1 mill. that is the truely awesome part

             

            here is my ploy to play when they do have this extra bonus number of potential winners.

            play thse numbers you get all 7 numbers 2x and about 50% of the times will win three quickpicks lol

            as there are also quick picks involved you will also get 26 quick picks.

            as the div 1 prize is capped at $50 mill every mill over $50 is an extra chance at 1 more millionaire

            ie if the prize pool is $80M there are 30 more  7 numbered lines drawn, and you would comparre alll your 39 lines ea against the 30 7 numbered lines.

             

            if you match any of the extra 30 drawn lines with all 7 numbers you win a mill. but nothing for any  lesser  matches

             

            note this is a wheel you can swap numbers around like 1 with 22, and 2 with 15 , so you make it unique to your self. ie dont ciopy these numbers out make youw own tickets with this as a guide

              oh and looking at that chart up above, 7 0f 7 is 1 in 28 mill so this would be 39in 28 mill x how ever many $1 mill bonus draws are done

              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
