KELOWNA - Lotto players are getting more chances to win and, more likely, lose.

Touted as a “new chapter in Canadian lottery history” Lotto Max players are now able to try their luck Tuesdays in addition to Fridays and the jackpot can now grow as high as $70 million.

There is no change to the cost of a Lotto Max ticket, which remains $5 for three selections of seven numbers.

The main jackpot for the Tuesday, May 14 Lotto Max draw is estimated at $17 million.

Lotto Max was introduced in 2009 with a maximum jackpot of $50 million. In 2015, the maximum jackpot was increased to $60 million. Since its launch, Lotto Max players across Canada have won over $11 billion, including 116 jackpot wins and 1,021 Maxmillions prizes.
