Next possible play – December 8 draw
The M groups won $5,273 and 136 free tickets in the October 9 Lotto Max draw for a total value of $5,953. A Group M23 ticket matched 6 numbers out of 7 and won $4,555.30.
The $55 million Lotto Max jackpot for the November 27 draw was not won and is capped at $60 million plus an estimated 9 Maxmillions for the next draw. One of the six Maxmillions was won. Weekly sales of $61.9 million were 50% higher than average and 22% higher than the previous week. Based on draw sales of $35 million, there was a 81% chance the jackpot would not be won, a 17% chance of 1 winning ticket and a 2% chance of 2 or more winners. The expected value was just above average at 53%. The jackpot and Maxmillions were over funded from sales by $0.7 million but rather than use the money to fund another Maxmillion, the money was added to the match 6 plus bonus prize.

The $1 million guaranteed prize was under funded from sales, placing the Guaranteed Prize Fund at a new record deficit of $186.4 million.
