Canadians will soon have a chance to win even bigger when it comes to Lotto Max draws.
Beginning in May 2019, a new jackpot of 70-million-dollars will be available.
There will also be two additional subsidiary prizes, and a new draw on Tuesday as well as the original on Friday.
Lotto Max’s Andrea Marantz said the change is simply to spice things up and keep people coming back for more.
“Like any game people get used to it, we wanted to spice it up and keep people interested in the game,” Marantz said.
Marantz said the game does remain very popular.
“Despite the fact that 60-million-dollars is an awful lot of money people get used to hearing it, it’s nice to add an additional 10-million, it may raise an excitement level again,” she added.
The odds of winning the new jackpot will be one in about 33-million per five-dollar-play.
