Get ready to hear a lot of “I’m not coming in on Monday if I win” talk around the office today, as Canadians coast to coast hope to be the country’s newest multimillionaire.
$50 million is up for grabs in tonight’s Lotto Max jackpot — which ties a record for the biggest jackpot ever to be won in Canadian history. But the moola doesn’t stop there. Forty-five $1 million prizes are also being drawn, not to mention the thousands of other smaller prizes awarded with each draw.
Depending on how many people run out by 8 p.m. tonight to buy a ticket, the amount could grow even larger.
Keep your fingers crossed, people!
