Who would complain about having a few extra million dollars in their pocket?

Hopefully, you'll have the luck of the Irish on your side if you decide to purchase a ticket on St. Patrick's Day.

The Lotto Max jackpot for Friday, March 18, will be $60 million, with six Maxmillions prizes of $1 million also offered.

On Tuesday, two $1 million prizes were won in Ontario and Quebec, according to Loto-Québec.

In a press release, Loto-Québec explained just how lucky Quebecers have gotten with Lotto Max.

According to the gaming corporation, people living in la belle province have won more than $3,021 million in the Lotto Max since it first started.

Plus, "thirty-eight jackpots have been won in Quebec, including two of $70,000,000 - the largest jackpots ever won in Quebec - in the February 25 and October 9, 2020 draws," Loto-Québec said.

Loto-Québec also shared that the last record Lotto Max jackpot in Quebec was back in 2019 on June 11, when a family shared $65,000,000. That must have made for one lovely family holiday!

If you're looking to test your luck, tickets can be purchased online with your Loto-Québec account or at a retailer before 10:30 p.m. on draw days, which are Tuesdays and Fridays.

The winning numbers are posted a few hours after the draw on Loto-Québec's website.
