$60 Million Lotto Max winner hasn't come forward yet to claim the winnings, is it you? Check your Lotto Max tickets if live in Alberta, you might be very wealthy.

As to the Lotto Max changing in 2019, I'm not liking it at all.....seems stupid to me but what can you do? I really hate changes with lottery games, they always screw things up just a little more making it harder to win.

$60 Million Lotto Max winner who hasn't come forward yet to claim the winnings is from Edmonton Alberta, from what I have heard. Oh well - it's not my ticket that won, I am from Toronto.

I'm not to impressed as to the changes coming for Lotto Max. I thought it he odds were bad enough to win as is never mind making them even worse. Still got Lotto 6/49 to play which I do love ..... hopefully they leave that game the heck alone.

Lotto Max is changing - I just did the calculations of what the odds would be now that it goes from a 7/49 which is (7/7 jackpot win of 1:28,633,528) to a 7/50 which is (7/7 jackpot win of 1:99.884,400) So the odds to hit the Lotto Max Jackpot will be much harder than previous.

Hey! Good stuff! gameon. Did you add into your calculations that there is 1 bonus ball drawn?

Looks correct to me ... just added the rest of the prize combination odds to win.


Odds plus Match

1 in 99,884,400 (hit all 7 numbers)
1 in 14,269,200 (hit 6 number plus bonus)
1 in 339,743 (hit all 6 numbers)
1 in 113,248 (hit all 5 numbers plus bonus)
1 in 5,524 (hit all 5 numbers)
1 in 231 (hit all 4 numbers)
1 in 23 (hit all 3 numbers)


This what the new Lotto Max odds will be when is a 7/50 game

A Bonus number is drawn in addition to the main winning numbers for LOTTO 6/49 - LOTTO MAX - WESTERN 649 and WESTERN MAX, and it does not appear on your ticket. Several prize categories pay prizes when you match the Bonus number.

My question is - When Lotto Max and Western Max switches over to pick 7 from 50 numbers game, will the bonus numbers still be as they used to be? Or will they even have a bonus number? I know this is a fair ways ahead (May -14-2019) so info may not be out just yet, anyone can answer this?

Yes there is still going to be a bonus number, no change there at all.

It's sooo sad that the Lotto Max (new version) will have worse odds to win than right now - 1 in 99,884,400 (hit all 7 numbers) that is not acceptable! If you are going make it harder to win, at least lower the cost of a single lottery ticket and or allow the jackpot to increase until someone hit it like United States Powerball which in my opinion is the best lottery game period. I think a lot Lotto Max players will turn away from playing the game and go over to Lotto 6/49, that's what I will most likely end up doing.

How many of you will stick with Lotto Max after it changes in May?

You know it....Lotto Max is a crappy lotto game, well in comparison to our United States Powerball. Before you just in at me, i used to live in Canada, working for forestry services in B.C, i now live in the U.S so i have some experience with Lotto Max and i just hated that lotto game and now they are going to make it even worse, what a shame!
