A history of the biggest LOTTO MAX wins in the West
In Alberta, the biggest lottery prize ever won was a $60 million jackpot claimed in Yellowhead County in late 2017. The province was also home to four $50 million jackpot wins – two claimed by Edmonton residents, along with one won in Fort Kent and one in Irma.
In Saskatchewan, the biggest LOTTO MAX win to date was a $60 million jackpot claimed by a Neville resident in August 2016.
If Friday’s $60 million jackpot is won by a Manitoba resident, it’ll be a record win for the province. The biggest-ever lottery win in Manitoba was also the very first LOTTO MAX jackpot ever won in Canada – a $50 million jackpot won by a couple from Sagkeeng First Nation in 2009.
The biggest LOTTO MAX jackpot ever won in Yukon was a $25 million jackpot claimed in 2013 by a group of co-workers in Faro. Earlier this year, a Whitehorse couple also claimed a $1 million MAXMILLIONS prize won on the Friday, July 13 draw.
