Two people from eastern Ontario, Canada have become the latest lottery millionaires!

June 15 Draw
OLG announced Frederick Hubbard, of Barry's Bay, had won the Lotto Max MAXMILLIONS prize of $1 million from the June 15 draw.

The retiree says he bought $10 more worth of tickets than he usually does, "This win came from the first line on the extra money I spent."

Hubbard plans to share his windfall with his children, make some investments and save some money aside for travel in the future.

He said, "I can't describe this experience. It's nice to know my family is taken care of."

June 22 Draw
Diana Hall and Kerry Benford (pictured above) from Kingston had the winning ticket for the Lotto Max MAXMILLIONS prize worth $1 million from the June 22 draw.

Benford was in disbelief after he scanned his tickets and saw the Big Winner screen appear, "I took a photo of the screen and then rushed home to show Diana. My jaw dropped a little more as I matched every number. I didn't believe it could be real."

Hall and Benford plan to travel in the future and will start that by visiting family and friends in Canada, "We'll enjoy our early retirement traveling when it's safe again."

Gambling in Canada
Gambling in Canada is a billion-dollar industry with an annual revenue exceeding CA$14.5 billion. The country is home to over 70 casino houses, 100,000 slot machines, and approximately 25,000 temporary casino and bingo-style establishments.

Back then, one must go to Vegas if they want to take part in poker, casino or sports betting activities, but now thanks to the advancements in technology, you can easily access online gambling sites via computers or mobile phones.

Sometimes people invest only few dollar and they win big!
 geseco1205/09/2021 02:55:41 GMT
That's right, there are many stories of that, people who are lucky, invest a few dollars and win millions, and there are others who spend their whole life playing the lottery and do not even have a prize, sometimes luck is not with you.
 dule-vu05/09/2021 04:23:29 GMT
Lottery is always story from few dollars!its not like poker or casino!
 geseco1206/09/2021 03:56:19 GMT
the lottery is very different than poker and casino, but that is luck, many have won millions of dollars playing the lottery and others have lost millions as well, so it is a matter of luck, that is why some are aware of that and do not play.

On lottery you can just buy ticke or to wait number and thats all!
 antonis32106/09/2021 20:36:42 GMT
That;s the good part with lottery dule-vu , you buy the ticket and wait for the win . No exceptional skill is needed , no hard decisions like in a poker game , no right decisions in every spin or bonus rounds like in (most) slot games . You just buy the ticket , that's all , good luck only you need , everyone can play lottery , no matter his age , very low the cost and the win can be huge Smile
 dule-vu06/09/2021 20:45:03 GMT
Yeah,you dont need any skill like you say,to know when to stop spin or to choose right club if you make bets!on this you need luck and time when to buy tickets!
 Rogerio1007/09/2021 04:22:24 GMT
It's all about lucky yes. But wow when i see those big prizes i think i will start play lottery haha. Instead of drink coffer or 2 less in local pub i will just get the tickets for weekend and if i bink something ok if not whatever it's just a coffe or two. If you are a gambler it's worth trying why not.
 dule-vu07/09/2021 05:24:42 GMT
Ha,ha,try it!for few euros per week,maybe you will get something!good luck!

G'day mates

Well I can say with total complete honesty I wish that I could hit a million dollar lotto win. Big Smile
Let's just say it would make life much much easier to say the least.
I understand however you need to first buy a ticket before you can win them things and since I only buy a lottery ticket about 3 times a year my chances are really slim. Lol

I look at it this was though, I win $10 every week I do not waste any money buy a losing lottery ticket, but I know you can not win if you do not play. Lol

hope you are all doing well
be cool

but if you dont buy them,you cant win then,right?
 geseco1207/09/2021 15:13:02 GMT
I think it is an unlikely game to win, the more you spend and you don't see results, it is luck that plays an important role, and sometimes it happens, but it is almost impossible.
 CALICUL07/09/2021 15:14:51 GMT
in lottery is much harder to win, it's true
 antonis32107/09/2021 22:53:55 GMT
My aunt used to buy every week many tickets , but she hasn't told me about any major win , or maybe she hid it ,lol , somany years and not wins and keep on trying every week makes no sense , only if one year she won sth in the past . Ofcourse she was a doctor , she could throw some money here and there not caring for this expense of some lottery tickets per week . And Greek state lottery is the worst of the kind imo , thanks god today there are many other options than it used to be in the past (in Greece and generally )
 dule-vu07/09/2021 23:01:15 GMT
I know that we cant all win on lottery,but somebody will have luck!on end you must have at least one winner!
 CALICUL07/09/2021 23:10:00 GMT
there in Romania are many variants and we can play lotteries from the USA, Canada and many countries for Europe ( maybe there are more options but i didn't check). This is very good for passionate players, but i don't play anymore. A few years ago i risked a 6/49 ticket once a week for many months, but i only won a ticket with 4 numbers and i recovered my investment without profit.
 CALICUL08/10/2021 08:56:01 GMT
This lottery has 7 numbers to guess and the prize at this time is $ 31 million. Whoever has money to risk and is eligible to play here can try because luck can come when you don't expect it. This couple managed to win a nice prize, but today's jackpot is much higher. Play if you want and hope for a lot of money.

Personally I play poker , casino , sports betting , but lottery ?? I have never bought a ticket for a lottery , i always thought the chance to win on one of these is very small , also I didn't see any win from my aunt (maybe she was hiding her big wins , I mean play evry week for years and not having not even one win , it's hard to believe ) . But I have bought many times scratch tickets Cool , but i guess this doesn't qualify for this

anotnis Big Smile
 dule-vu12/10/2021 17:59:49 GMT
in lottery you dont need to think much,choose numbers and wait for draw at night or like other lotteries,you just get your serial number and you wait that they choose you!on this kind of games you can lose as much as you can on other games!
 dule-vu13/10/2021 18:26:28 GMT
for lottery you dont lot of money (ofcourse that you can spend thousands),but you can spend only few bucks per week and still to have luck to win main prize!just depend to you like to pick numbers or some system like this where somebody show winning ticket on tv!
 antonis32113/10/2021 23:42:56 GMT
I like more poker , where your decisions have influence and affect the final result , ofcourse luck is a great factor , but still the decisions are important . Slots can be fun to play , also if you follow a strategy , play specific slot games you know , you might learn how to increase your winrate in casino slots . Lottery tickets , hmmmm , I think I 'll pass Smile ofcourse all those who are lucky and win a lot of money in lotteries they inspire many others to keep on playing dreamong one day the big win , they are indeed very very lucky .
 dule-vu13/10/2021 23:58:22 GMT
I understand,but just say about lottery!
 dule-vu15/10/2021 18:57:28 GMT
before I did spend few bucks on lottery,because it was only state lottery,not like you have now on every bookmaker lotto from lot of countries,so it was cheap,you have two days in week and differetn lotto,but now didnt play it for years!in my country,older people play it Big Smile
I am more on other ways of gambling,like you!
 dule-vu18/10/2021 13:21:12 GMT
maybe you should try this euro jackpot game,where almost every country in EU is part of this,so thats why they have such a big jackpot of 40,50,60 million euros (depend how much it grow before somebody get it)!minimum combination is 2 e and its only on friday night,so its not much to invest every week!
you must guess 5 numbers in first part and 2 numbers in second part!its still 7 number like in normal lotto,but you can get same number in first and second part,but in second you have only numbers from 1 to 9!
