Spokesman Chris Fairclough says the jackpot could climb as high as $60-million, starting July 17.
He says if no one wins the current jackpot this Friday and the money carries over to next week's draw, the pot will surpass the $50-million dollar maximum.
He says the lottery corporation has decided to increase the jackpot cap to $60-million, effective next week.
The Lotto Max jackpot has not been claimed in the two previous Friday draws, dramatically increasing the total winnings available.
The capped $50-million top prize will be up for grabs this Friday, along with 25 separate Max Million prizes of $1-million each. (CHNL)
