MONTREAL -- Since the jackpot was not won in Tuesday night's national Lotto Max draw, the jackpot in Friday night's draw will be $70 million.
Loto-Quebec said that the draw will also consist of approximately 21 $1 million prizes.
On Wednesday, a single $1 million Lotto Max prize was won thanks to a selection of numbers sold in Ontario.
Since the launch of the lottery, two $70 million jackpots have been won in Quebec, both last year, on Feb. 25 and Oct. 9.
These were the biggest jackpots ever won in Quebec.
On June 11, 2019, a family from Quebec shared $65 million and four jackpots of $60 million were won in three draws in 2017 and one in 2018.
