Montréal, October 19, 2018 – Tonight’s Lotto Max draw will offer a $60,000,000 jackpot and a whopping 53 Maxmillions! To date, over 2 million tickets have been sold—22.2% of which were purchased in Québec.

This 113 million dollar grand total is the biggest amount ever in play in the history of Loto-Québec, and even in all of Canada!


The previous record was established by Lotto Max in June 2018, when it offered a $60,000,000 jackpot and 52 Maxmillions. This last jackpot was won by a group of 10 from Drummondville.

Since January 6, 2017, four $60,000,000 jackpots and two 55,000,000 jackpots have been won in Québec through Lotto Max.
