The Canadian Lotto Max jackpot has been won by a group of ticket holders in Saskatoon. The $50 million prize is the largest ever awarded to an individual player, and it will be divided among them. It was quite lucky for these people as they were playing with their last few dollars on tickets that barely came close to winning the grand prize.

The “lotto max jackpot” is a Canadian lottery game, where the prize for winning the jackpot can be as high as CA$50-million. The winner of this game was Saskatoon.

CA$50-Million Lotto Max Prize Goes to Saskatoon

The Lotto Max prize was being built up across numerous draws since no one from the nation had been able to claim it for several weeks. This changed last Friday, when the game’s round on January 7, 2022, decided that one ticket holder from Saskatoon is now CA$50,000,000 wealthier. The winner will have up to 52 weeks to receive the award that will change their life.


Every week, Lotto Max has two drawings in which Canadian lottery players may win rewards. The game has developed in popularity in the nation because it may award a jackpot of seven figures, with a maximum prize of CA$70,000,000. Depending on the amount of the main prize, several Maxmillion awards totaling a total of CA$1,000,000 may be awarded in a single draw.

Payments totaling more than CA$50 million have been made.


The Lotto Max prize was eventually given a winning ticket in last Friday’s draw. The winning numbers were 04, 05, 31, 39, 42, 45, and 50, and a ticket from Saskatoon absolutely matched them. The specific location of the winning ticket has not been established as of yet owing to safety concerns. It will be revealed when the winner has claimed their reward of CA$50 million.

A secondary reward was also awarded in the Friday draw to two ticket holders, one from Ontario and the other from the Atlantic provinces. The two ticket holders will divide a jackpot of CA$533,748.30 if they correctly predict six of the seven winning numbers. Also included in the Friday draw were two Maxmillion prizes that were not claimed.

Previously, Matthew Poppels received a CA$55,000,000 payment from Lotto Max, bringing the total number of large lottery payouts in Saskatchewan to four. In the fan-favorite game’s October 19 2021 draw, Mr. Poppels’ ticket proved to be the winning one. He wasted little time in collecting his substantial gains, since it only took him eight days.

Two More Winners are Announced by B.C.

Last Thursday, the government of British Columbia announced two additional large lottery winners. The first was Arthur and Margaret Lyon, a Surrey couple. Because they found out about their victory on their anniversary, it’s a very sweet win. The couple won $1 million in a Lotto 6/49 draw that took place in November of last year.

Susan Dyson of Vancouver is also a winner of a Guaranteed CA$1 million prize from Lotto 6/49, according to the BCLC. During the game’s New Year’s Day draw, her ticket was chosen as the winning one. She said that she doesn’t play the lottery very frequently, but she does buy a few tickets when the prize is large.

Recent Millionaires in Ontario

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission (OLG) announced in January that former Toronto couple Elizabeth and Arlene Lumbo had won a CA$44 million Lotto Max prize. Last year, the two former partners, who are now close friends, struck it rich in the game’s July 20 draw, and will now share the top prize equally, with each getting CA$22,011,636.
