According to those who ponder these things, playing and winning Lotto Max is more than 40 times less likely to happen than getting killed by a terrorist while travelling (one in 650,000 odds).

Another $1 million ticket has been sold in Sudbury.

Two tickets sold on Vancouver Island have won $500,000 from Lotto Max's MAXMILLIONS June 8th draw.

- 9 Maxmillions prizes, worth $1,000,000 each, were sold in the London area, Mississauga, Ottawa, the Pembroke area, Toronto (2 tickets), Whitby, Windsor and on PlayOLG.ca.

Ebola death toll rises to 27
On the front lines of the outbreak, health officials use a tool called contact tracing to break the chain of transmission of the Ebola virus.

Lotto Max has not come forward with the winner's name, so if you bought a ticket in Quebec you better check your numbers!

It's unclear where in Ladysmith the ticket was purchased.

Another lucky lotto victor in the Thunder Bay area is $500,000 richer following last week's Maxmillions draw.

After going unclaimed last Friday, Lotto Max carried forward their massive jackpot. Players must match all seven numbers, in any one set, to win the jackpot or the Maxmillions prizes.
