If you use Smart Luck lottery strategy software for this game, the same Advantage Gold program will work for this game. All you have to do is download the new history file. Note that we had to start a new file due to the severe number format change, so the history starts March 2020.

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.

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.
