KAMLOOPS - No one has the winning ticket for the $44-million jackpot in last night's Lotto Max draw, but someone in the Shuswap won $500,000 for the Extra.

Two tickets matched the four winning numbers on the Extra in the Lotto Max draw April 1, one sold in the Shuswap and the other in Vancouver. Each ticket is worth $500,000.

The winning Extra numbers are: 01 08 27 93.

Because no winning tickets were sold for the grand prize, the jackpot for the next draw on Apr. 8 will be $50-million, and there will be approximately six MaxMillions prizes of $1-million each available.

The Lotto Max grand prize was last won Mar. 18, when a ticket worth $60-million was held by Maurice De Gennaro of Toronto.

De Gennaro, a 68-year-old semi-retired engineer, picked up a cheque for his winnings on Friday.

To check all the winning numbers from last night’s draw go to the BCLC website.
