Quebec Max offers 15 different ways to become a millionaire in every draw. The game works in a very similar way to Lotto Max, except it’s only available in Quebec. The overall odds of winning are 1 in 7 and you receive a prize if you match at least three numbers. Discover more about a lottery which boasts a jackpot worth $2 million, plus an additional 14 prizes of $1 million.
Just like Lotto Max, Quebec Max draws take place every Tuesday and Friday evening. Seven numbers are randomly selected from 1 to 50, followed by a Bonus Ball from the remaining 43. Go to the Quebec Max Numbers page to see all the latest results.
Quebec Max is played in the same way as Lotto Max. You pick seven numbers from 1 to 50, either by choosing your own or asking for a random selection. Each play consists of three sets of numbers and costs just $2.
You can play online or from retailers in Quebec. You just need to make sure you get your entries in by 10:30pm Eastern Time. Quebec Max can be played on its own or in addition to Lotto Max.
You can also add Extra to your Quebec Max entry for an additional $1. Your Quebec Max numbers will be entered automatically into the ‘additional selection’ draws associated with each game.
In Quebec Max, you win prizes in the same way as you do in Lotto Max. However, the payouts are all fixed amounts.
You must match at least three main numbers out of seven to receive an award, and the value of prizes increases as you match more numbers. The following table shows all the prizes and odds of winning:
|Numbers Matched||Prize||Odds of Winning|
|7||$2 million||1 in 33,294,800|
|6 + Bonus||$100,000||1 in 4,756,400|
|6||$1,000||1 in 113,248|
|5 + Bonus||$200||1 in 37,749|
|5||$100||1 in 1,841|
|4 + Bonus||$20||1 in 1,105|
|4||$10||1 in 82.9|
|3 + Bonus||$10||1 in 82.9|
|3||Free Play||1 in 8.5|
The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 7
The jackpot of $2 million is fixed in every draw and does not carry over if there are no winners. If there are multiple winners, the jackpot is shared. For the second prize, there is a limit to the total that can be paid out to players who match six numbers plus the Bonus Ball. This cap is set at $700,000, so if there are more than seven winners in this category they would each receive a lower payout than the normal $100,000.
In the same way that Max Millions can provide more opportunities to win $1 million alongside the main Lotto Max draw, Quebec Max holds 14 ‘additional selection’ draws. These are separate draws which take place in addition to Quebec Max every Tuesday and Friday.
Your Quebec Max numbers are automatically entered into all these draws. If you match all seven numbers in one of the additional draws, you win $1 million. There are no other prizes except for the jackpot so you need to match all the numbers. If more than one player wins in a particular additional selection draw, the $1 million prize is split between them.
