Lottery ticket scanners across the country will be getting a workout Wednesday, after last night’s buzz-worthy Lotto Max draw.

The OLG says one winning ticket worth $70 million was sold in Brampton.

Tickets for 19 Maxmillion prizes were also given away.

Six of those Maxmillion tickets worth $1 million each were also sold in Ontario — one each in Brampton, Hamilton, the Niagara Region, Oshawa, Ottawa and Pickering.

The $70-million prize would be the largest jackpot ever awarded in Canada if the winner comes forward.

Friday’s Lotto Max jackpot drops to $33 million.
