By Brian Schultz

A huge lottery jackpot is up for grabs in tonight’s Lotto Max draw.

For the fourth time since the game began in September 2009, $40 million will be the big prize.

Tickets can be purchased at authorized retailers until 9 p.m. ET (8 p.m. local).

Thirty-two-year-old Cameron Blair won $41.7 million to claim the second largest lottery jackpot ever won by an individual in Canada.

In February, two tickets split a $50 million Lotto Max draw — one in Quebec and the other in British Columbia. Last November, Marie Fontaine of Pine Falls, Manitoba pocketed a $50 million Lotto Max prize.
