Lotto MAX has been a hot topic over the past more than a month up until its last draw when the lucky numbers matched those printed on a ticket sold in Oshawa. This means that at the moment one Ontarian is eligible for the generous CA$55-million jackpot and it is only a matter of time before the lucky player contacts Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and claims the hefty prize.
Ever since the last days of February, all eyes have been set on Lotto MAX, which is the most popular lottery game for a reason. February 22 was a special day for someone in British Columbia, as the jackpot hit then reached CA$25.9 million. This was the last Lotto MAX jackpot up until this Friday and the latest regular draw, which changed one player’s life forever. Now it is time for another devoted player to bag their fortune.
Long-Anticipated Jackpot Hit Changes a Life
Players from across the country have been eyeing the lottery game and every single Friday individuals from across Canada have been eagerly anticipating the regular draw. One of them who had purchased a ticket in Oshawa saw Lady Luck’s smile. The fortunate ticket sold has the numbers 01-02-16-21-23-25-28 plus the bonus one 48 printed on itself.
For matching all seven of the regular numbers drawn, the ticket is considered valid. Once the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation checked its database the single-winning ticket was confirmed and the information was issued publicly. All players are now advised to check their lottery tickets and ensure that they are still in possession of them.
It could be recalled that last week a Quebec couple found a CA$1-million ticket hidden in a book about Japan and managed to cash it in only days before its expiration date. In this sense, players should be careful with the priceless pieces of paper that have the potential to change their lives.
April 12 Brings CA$16-million Jackpot
In addition to the information about the jackpot hit, the area in which the lottery ticket was purchased was also specified. This confirmed that the Oshawa region could soon welcome the CA$55-million windfall. Everyone that has bought a Lotto MAX ticket is now a potential winner, but the main prize is not the only way a player could win with Canada’s most popular lottery game.
Ontario saw a generous draw, as more cash prizes went its way as a result of it. St. Thomas is where someone bought a ticket that is now eligible for a Maxmillion prize of CA$1 million. In addition to that, a player from Toronto could very soon bag their Encore CA$1-million prize. Lotto MAX offers more than one way of winning big, which makes it the popular offering that it is.
April 12 is going to see the next regular lottery draw coming with a jackpot of CA$16 million. The interest in participation in it is projected to be high following the recent jackpot hit. It should also be taken into account that May 11 is about to see major changes to the lottery game, such as the addition of a second draw day and main prize limit increase to CA$70 million.
