It’s the stuff dreams are made of — the biggest lottery jackpot in Canadian history is up for grabs tonight.

The grand prize in the Lotto 6-49 draw will be an estimated $64-million, and Canadians across the country have been lining up for their tickets.

Of course the odds of walking this road to riches are pretty slim, to put it mildly — estimated at about one-in-14-million.

The lottery’s grand prize has rolled over 11 times since a $7-million jackpot was last won Sept. 5 by a ticketholder in Ontario.

The previous Canadian lottery record was $63.4-million for a 6-49 draw in April, 2013.

That pot was split among four ticketholders, with each banking nearly $16-million.

On the Lotto Max front — no one had the winning ticket for Friday night’s $43-million jackpot.

The jackpot for next Friday’s draw will be $50-million, and there will also be four MaxMillion prizes of $1-million each available.
