Record-breaking Tuesday: Estimated $117 million in total LOTTO MAX prizes
Top prizes include $70 million main jackpot and 47 MAXMILLIONS (est.)
SASKATOON (JUNE 7, 2021) — It’s a big week for LOTTO MAX players in Saskatchewan.
Not only is the June 8 LOTTO MAX jackpot $70 million, the Tuesday night draw will also offer an estimated 47 MAXMILLIONS prizes of $1 million each – that’s a record-breaking $117 million in total prizes!
To put it in perspective, a $70 million jackpot would beat out the next biggest jackpot ever awarded in Saskatchewan (back in August of 2016 to winners from the village of Neville) by a cool $10 million.
So, what would you do if you won $70 million? Most Canadian lottery winners talk about sharing their good fortune, as well as treating themselves a little.
With a $70 million lottery win you could:
- Pay off your mortgage and the mortgages of over 200 of your closest family
and friends. The average mortgage in Canada is about $300,000. $70
million would go a long way
- Donate $1 million to 35 of your favourite charities, and still have $35 million left over
- Or, you could just put it in the bank and live comfortably; A $70 million
deposit would net enough interest every year to keep you financially
