A record-breaking $65 million is up for grabs in the Lotto Max draw.
It’s the biggest lottery jackpot in Canadian history. The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. says the previous record of $64 million was won in October of 2015.
To win the jackpot, a ticket must match all seven numbers in the same set. Tickets are on sale until 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The OLG website says the odds of matching all seven numbers is about 1 in 33,294,800 per $5 play.
There are also 10 separate $1-million prizes available in the draw.
Lotto Max players have won more than $4.8 billion since the lottery’s launch in 2009.
