Thirty-four people won the third prize, each receiving $5,567.80 after matching six of the seven numbers.

The Lotto Max Extra winning numbers were 44, 78, 85, and 87, but no one won the $500,000 prize. However, another Ontario lottery player will wake up to some life-changing news. According to OLG, one lucky winner matched the Encore number 4832491 and is now $1 million richer.
