TORONTO — The Lotto-Max lottery will make history tonight by offering an estimated jackpot of $60 million for the first time.

Ticket buyers could also win one of 25 Maxmillions prizes worth $1 million each.

The $60 million jackpot follows six weeks in which the main Lotto-Max prize went unclaimed. During that period, the jackpot went from $12 million on Aug. 14 to $55 million last Friday.

The last major Lotto-Max jackpot worth $50 million was won on Aug. 7 by a ticket purchased in Alberta.

While the $60 million jackpot is a record for Lotto-Max, it is not a record for a lottery in Canada.

A Lotto 6-49 jackpot in April 2013 worth $63.4 million was shared by four winners.
