If you've never bought a lottery ticket before, you might want to reconsider.
A whopping $100 million - including the $50 million jackpot and approximately 50 $1 million dollar prizes - is up for grabs at next Friday's Lotto Max draw, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. said.
Lady Luck smiled on several Ontarians whose numbers came up last night.
There were four Maxmillions tickets sold here, two tickets worth $355,208.70 each share in the second prize pool, and five Encore tickets worth $100,000 each were sold in the Owen Sound region, St. Thomas, Welland, and Woodbridge.
Since its launch in 2009, Ontario Lotto Max players have won over $1.9 billion in prizes, including 31 jackpot wins and 172 winning Maxmillions tickets from across the province.
