Lotto Max jackpot cap to be hiked to $60 million

July 08, 2015 - 11:39 AM

KAMLOOPS - The B.C. Lottery Corporation says the cap on the top prize for the Lotto Max jackpot will climb, if the cash is not won in the upcoming draw.

Spokesman Chris Fairclough says the jackpot could climb as high as $60 million, starting July 17.

He says if no one wins the current jackpot this Friday and the money carries over to next week's draw, the pot will surpass the $50-million maximum.

He says the lottery corporation has decided to increase the jackpot cap to $60 million, effective next week.

The Lotto Max jackpot has not been claimed in the two previous Friday draws, dramatically increasing the total winnings available.

The capped $50-million top prize will be up for grabs this Friday, along with 25 separate Max Million prizes of $1 million each.
