New lottery game to debut on Sept. 25

Canada’s lottery lovers will soon have a new game to replace the Lotto Super 7.

TORONTO — Canada’s lottery lovers will soon have a new game to replace the Lotto Super 7.

Drawings for Lotto Max, the latest addition to the national lottery line-up, will be held on Friday nights, starting with the first draw on Sept. 25.

Like the Super 7, Lotto Max players must match seven numbers to win.

Players will get three chances to win for each $5 play — up from $2.

Jackpots will start at $10 million but if a jackpot is not won it will “roll” to the next draw date, reaching as high as $50 million.

Once the jackpot reaches $50 million, additional prizes of $1 million will be drawn — giving more people a chance to win big bucks.

Lottery officials announced in March that the Super 7 would be going into retirement.

Super 7 used numbers between one and 47, while Lotto Max numbers go up to 49. The first Lotto Max tickets go on sale Sept. 19.
