If you live in Mississauga, you might just become a millionaire!

According to OLG, 14 Maxmillions prize tickets were sold across Ontario and a big winning ticket was sold in Mississauga. Sadly, the major $60 million Lotto Max jackpot winning ticket from the Friday, Jan 6 draw was sold in Quebec, but that doesn’t mean a local can’t get his or her hands on a cool million.

According to OLG, nine $1 million tickets were sold in: 

  • Mississauga
  • Pickering
  • Oshawa
  • Ottawa
  • Newmarket area
  • Owen Sound area
  • Peterborough area
  • Richmond Hill area
  • Thunder Bay area

A secondary Lotto Max prize winning ticket worth $1,506,363.60 was sold in Toronto.

If you miss out on the million dollar prize, there’s still a chance you could score $500,000. 

OLG says that Maxmillions tickets worth half a million were sold in Mississauga, Georgetown, the Kitchener area, Barrie and Brockville. Another Encore ticket worth $100,000 was also sold in Mississauga. 

Lotto Max players receive three sets of seven numbers ranging from one to 49 for each $5 play. Pllayers must match all seven numbers, in any one set, to win the jackpot and prizes. 

Players can purchase tickets at OLG retailers or buy online here until 10:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 13 for the evening draw. 

Good luck, everyone!
