One lucky lottery winner in Victoria and another winner in Ontario will split the $70-million Lotto Max jackpot.

Both winning ticket holders matched all seven numbers in Tuesday night's Lotto Max draw.

There were 15 available Maxmillion prizes of $1 million each, and five winning tickets were drawn.

Two of the tickets are each shared between two winners, splitting the money, while one ticket will claim the entire $1 million prize.

Three of the Maxmillion winners are in Ontario, one is in B.C. and the other is in Quebec.

The jackpot for the next draw on June 9 will be an estimated $22 million.
