A ticket for the Lotto Max second prize worth more than $1,041,000 was sold in the Etobicoke area of Toronto. There was also a Maxmillion ticket worth $1 million was sold in Simcoe County, Ont.

Three winning Encore tickets from Tuesday were sold in Ontario as well, each worth $100,000, in Haliburton County, Burlington and Kitchener.
