Lotto Max is a Canadian lottery game that is run and administered by Interprovincial Lottery Corporation. This lottery was introduced in Canada back in September 19, 2009, at the time when Lotto Super 7 was discontinued. Since then, it has rapidly gained popularity and now millions of people living all over Canada play the lottery. The proceeds from the sale of lottery tickets are used to fund education and public sector projects.
In a recent Lotto Max draw that was held on Friday 2nd December 2016 an old woman, aged 80, won a whopping $50 million jackpot. A mother of three children, grandma of nine grandchildren and great-grandma of eight great-grandchildren. The lottery winner, named Lois Olsen, told the media that she is too old for this prize money; she said that it would definitely help her children with this money.
On a question from press reporters on how she would spend the money on herself, she answered that she would replace her 11-year-old car with a brand new SUV. Well, with prize money of $50 million she could now buy a whole fleet of SUVs. The winning grandma also told the reporters that she thought that she had won $500 when she checked the lottery number at the local grocery store. But as soon as she realized that she had won $50 million she started shivering for few moments. Awww… our not-so-poor old grandma.
The news of Lois Olsen winning the jackpot spread like a wildfire in a town where she lives. She was dodging media reporters, winners can choose to stay anonymous. She won the Jackpot on 11th November 2016 but has claimed the money from the lottery head office a few days ago. The minimum amount of Lotto Max jackpot is $10 million. This amount gets rolled over until someone hits the jackpot.
