Loto-Québec's Lotto Max jackpot went unclaimed last week, when no winning ticket was sold for the $70 million prize which was to be given out on Friday, January 3, 2020. Loto-Québec will be drawing numbers again tonight, Tuesday, January 7, 2020 to find the future multi-millionaire who will walk away with the $70 million jackpot. There will also be 25 Maxmillion prizes of approximately $1 million each.
This $70 million jackpot is apparently a record-breaking prize for Loto-Québec, surpassing the previously-titled largest jackpot in the province's history, a prize of $65 million, which was won last June in Montreal, according to TVA Nouvelles.
So if you've racked up some holiday debt or have been dreaming of a vacation... hell, if you're not stupid and know that $70 million would completely change your life, you should consider buying a ticket today before the deadline at 10:30 p.m.
Also, you don't have to head to a store to purchase your ticket, either, as Loto-Québec allows Québecers to play online via their website. You must be 18 years old, of course, with a valid credit card. Your billing address must be a Québec address and the phone number linked to your card must also be a Québec-region area code.
I tried signing up this morning and was out of luck because I've stubbornly not changed my phone number and 416 was not an option in the area code drop-down list... so it looks like I'll have to hoof it to the store if I really want my chance at this unreal prize.
J’ai la confirmation que le gros lot du #lottomax de 70 M$ N’A PAS été gagné ce soir! Nous avons toutefois 1 billet… https://t.co/AWxNWppqUi
It costs $5 per each Lotto-Max play and $2 to add the Québec Max and $1 to play with Extra, which means this purchase could cost you less than a fancy coffee and could afford you the money to then hire your own live-in barista.
On commence 2020 en force avec le Salon des gagnants rempli de nouveaux millionnaires!🙌🎉#nosgagnants https://t.co/aF8RNjXiOq
