Mystery Millionaire Emerges from Lotto Max Draw in Canada


Somewhere in the broad expanse of Canada, an unknowing lottery player is one million dollars wealthier today. The fortunate player, location yet unknown, is the holder of the winning ticket from the Lotto Max draw that transpired on Tuesday, April 16.

Highlighting the draw was the staggering $70 million jackpot up for grabs, which, in an interesting comparison, equals the cost of nearly 100 homes, taking into account the 2024 national average home price of $698,530. But Lady Luck played coy that night. Despite the grabs, the grand pot remained elusive as no one matched all seven winning numbers: 15, 19, 22, 28, 34, 36, 46, and the bonus number 25.

However, two individuals came tantalizingly close to grasping the full jackpot. Mastering six of the winning numbers and the bonus one, these lucky players each won $144,943.00. The winning tickets, as per PlayNow, originated from Western Canada and Ontario.

In addition to the $70 million prize, the lottery draw also presented ten Maxmillion prizes. Out of those, only one was claimed. The fortunate winner hails from Quebec and stands to collect a cool $1 million. Their winning ticket sported the numbers 13, 16, 36, 37, 39, 41, and 46.

The draw also included the Lotto Max Extra winning numbers, which were 54, 68, 79, and 82. Unfortunately, no one hit the target, leaving the $500,000 prize unclaimed. The Encore number 4183680 faced the same fate and couldn’t find a match, leaving the $1 million prize untouched.

Despite the unclaimed prizes, the draw results are bound to take a positive turn. The upcoming draw on Friday, April 19, holds the same grand prize of $70 million with an estimated 13 Maxmillions prizes in tow. This may result in even more prize winners, harkening back to February 20 when a player from Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, carted away with the grand sum of $70 million.
