The top prize in Quebec Max does not roll over, so it stays at $2 million for every draw. The maximum that can be paid out to winners in the second category is a combined $700,000, so if there are more than seven players who match six numbers plus the Bonus Ball they will have to share $700,000.
There are also 14 'additional selection' draws alongside every Quebec Max draw. These are similar to Maxmillions, with 14 separate draws held in addition to the main Quebec Max game. If you match all seven numbers in one of these additional draws, you win $1 million.
Your numbers for the main Quebec Max draw are automatically entered into these additional draws. Just like the main Quebec Max draw, the jackpot is split if there are multiple winners. There are no other prizes apart from the jackpot in these additional draws, so you need to match all the numbers to win.
