Any lottery needs a constant system that participants understand. However, once in a while, it is important to make participating more attractive by raising the stakes or even making it easier to win the jackpot. Lottario has learnt the need to make stakes more attractive over the years. It is the biggest lottery in Ontario and has been around since 1978. It has improved over time and took a turn in 2015 for a progressive jackpot and better odds, making it even more attractive to lottery lovers. The progressive jackpot also means that there are more prizes to be won.
Other Lottario Winning Enhancements
In addition to a growing jackpot, there were other enhancements that were added to the game. These include:
- Extended options when it comes to advance play. The options now stand at 26 draws, a level up from the previous ten

The Second Largest Lottario Jackpot
With these improvements to the game, the second largest Lottario jackpot was recorded in March 2017 at $3,280,725.40, two years after the jackpot started growing bigger. The winning ticket was bought in Peterborough and had the Lottario winning numbers 7, 8, 11, 15, 22 and 24. The early bird numbers were 15, 32, 42 and 45 while the bonus number was 10. This jackpot is the second largest since Lottario started in 1978 and only comes after the 1992 jackpot that stood at $3.6 million. These Lottario results came as welcome news to whoever bought the ticket as they were now millionaires.
Terms of Collecting Lottario Winning
Whenever an individual wins the jackpot, they have to claim the winning before six months are over. With the growing jackpot, people have better chances of winning. Additionally, they also have a lot to lose if they do not collect their money within the stipulated time. The challenge comes in because many people tend to forget that they bought tickets. Some even lose these tickets. When there is more money on the line, people who have these tendencies have a lot to lose as well. In addition to the time period within which you can collect the Lottario Winning, you also need to visit Lottario headquarters to get your winnings if they are above the predetermined figure. Those who get these winnings also have their names published for public records.
Lottario results are announced often so that people have higher chances of winning and more prizes to win. It is easy to participate in the game, and it does not cost a lot of money. That is a large part of what makes Lottario so attractive. Since the game included the progressive jackpot, it also attracts many more participants. Over recent years, it has been this progressive and dynamic feature of the lottery that has maintained freshness in the draw and kept the whole process an exciting one to both first time and established Lottario players.
