TORONTO — No one has the winning ticket for the $44-million jackpot in Friday night's Lotto Max draw.

The jackpot for the next draw on Apr. 8 will be $50-million, and there will be approximately six MaxMillions prizes of $1-million each available.

The Lotto Max grand prize was last won Mar. 18, when a ticket worth $60-million was held by Maurice De Gennaro of Toronto.

De Gennaro, a 68-year-old semi-retired engineer, picked up a cheque for his winnings on Friday.
