Canada Max (Lotto/Western/Quebec) GAME CHANGES

Canada has made changes to their LOTTO MAX games. Lotto Max, Quebec Max, and Western Max have added another number to the format. Numbers will be drawn from a range of 1-50. Drawings will now be twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The maximum LOTTO MAX jackpot will increase to $70 million! Additional MAXMILLIONS draws will continue to kick in once the jackpot reaches $50 million. Two new prize categories (5 of 7 +Bonus and 4 of 7 +Bonus) will be added. The price of LOTTO MAX tickets will remain the same.

We have made new game files to reflect the updated number format. Note that you will need to download the new files, as the old ones will no longer be updated – they cannot accept numbers greater than 49 without file property changes. If you use Favorites in Lottery Updater, you will need to go to change your favorites to select the new files.

Powerball File Changes – Sorting Numbers

We have changed the Powerball .slh file in order to add the numbers in draw order. This was due to a request by some customers. It is one of the only game files that we have available in draw order. However, not everyone wants the numbers in draw order, so we have also added a new feature in Advantage Gold that will work for the new Powerball file.

Sorting Powerball numbers in Advantage Gold .SLH file

  1. To see the drawings in sorted order:
    • Right click and select “Show Draws Sorted”.
    • Uncheck it to see the draws back in order drawn.
  2. To force the setting to be checked whenever this file is loaded:
    Click File | Preferences | Other, then check Auto select “Show Sorted” on Startup.
    This will force the file to show sorted when it is loaded but keeps the original order on the disk copy so you could always still see the information in order drawn by un-checking.
  3. To change your copy of the file to sorted only:
    • Click File | SLH Properties, or click the hammer icon then
    • Check Autosort Drawings
    • If you want to remove the ballsets, check No Ballsets
    • Click SAVE and click YES.
      This makes the file on the disk the same as what you see. The only way to get back the order drawn would be to download the file again from our web site.

NOTE: This ability requires Advantage Gold release 4.0.1.141 or newer. Previous releases prevented saving changes to history files in the demo version.

FOR ADVANTAGE PLUS ONLY USERS:

If you do not own Advantage Gold, install it from our web site, then use it in Demo Mode. #3 above will work to get the file in the sorted low to high format.

Florida Jackpot Triple Play NEW GAME

Florida Jackpot Triple Play 6/46 is Florida’s newest pick-6 Lotto game which replaced the old Lucky Money game in February 2019. Because you get 3 plays for a dollar, they claim the odds per ticket are one in 3,122,273. (Florida Fantasy 5 is a much better bet.) You choose six numbers from 1 to 46 to play and there are no bonus or powerball numbers drawn in this game. A second and third set of numbers will be automatically generated for you to give you your triple play. For an extra chance to win up to $10,000 by combining winning number matches from all three sets of numbers, pick the Combo box for $1 more. Drawings are held twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The jackpot starts at $500,000 and can roll over to up to $2 million if there isn’t a jackpot winner. Once the jackpot reaches $2 million, and there is no jackpot winner, the excess money in the jackpot prize pool rolls down and increases the payouts on all of the lower-tier prize levels each drawing until the jackpot is won.

If you use favorites in Lottery Updater, you will need to select the new game files. Our software will work the same with the new file as they did with the old file. You will just need to wait a few months for more drawings to build up with the new format in order for the medium and long-term trend charts to be useful. Wheel Five Gold will still work using any wheel with 35 or fewer total numbers.
