Unclaimed lottery prizes could be found in every province and there might be many reasons for this. One of the most recent cases of such delay occurred in Winnipeg where a CA$2-million ticket is looking forward to making its purchaser much richer. However, almost two weeks after the lucky draw the substantial prize remains unclaimed and this raises eyebrows across the province.
Even though people make plans for various occasions and strive to make them happen, often times life gets in the way of things and changes them entirely. There are many things that could happen between a lottery ticket purchase and the actual draw, which could explain the 10-day delay. It is true, however, that the Western Canada Lottery Corporation is looking forward to meeting the lucky winner who is now a multimillionaire.
Unclaimed CA$2-Million Jackpot Up for Grabs
Lotto 6/49 and Lotto MAX are two of the most popular lottery offerings due to their generous cash rewards and the affordable ticket price. Millions of Canadians are looking forward to every weekly draw just to see whether they had become Canada’s next multimillionaire overnight. When it comes to this recent draw, the player has yet to contact the lottery corporation.
The lucky numbers were 2, 10, 19, 36, 39, and 43 and for the ticket purchaser, they might have a special significance. Often times players use the same number combination for years when participating in the lottery. Once the lottery draw has come to an end it all becomes a waiting game, as the player has a total of 52 weeks to claim their prize.
The Winnipeg individual would have to make a move in the foreseeable future or else the prize would return to the prize pool. Local players that had purchased tickets prior to the May 4 draw are encouraged to check their pockets, handbags, and drawers for potential forgotten or misplaced tickets that could change their future.

Unclaimed Prizes Swell
Until the deadline for this jackpot comes, there are many other important dates that could see the expiration of jackpots worth millions of Canadian dollars. It should be highlighted that one of the largest jackpots in Canadian history, the Lotto MAX CA$60-million one has yet to be bagged. It could be claimed by a ticket sold in Edmonton, Alberta.
Whoever is in possession of this ticket has until October 26 to claim the record lottery jackpot. Another great prize still awaiting its winner is the CA$1-million MAXMILLIONS one. A ticket sold on June 1, 2018 in Calgary could claim the prize. The lucky numbers of this draw were 7, 8, 14, 20, 23, 27, 37. Another still unclaimed lottery prize amounts to CA$1 million and could soon make its way to Alberta.
June 8, 2018 was the special day for that player who has MAXMILLIONS to thank for their windfall and has until June 8, 2019 to bag their million. WCLC reports that the overall amount of unclaimed lottery jackpots reaches CA$63,400,705. There are prize claim offices in St. Albert, Calgary, Saskatoon, Regina, and Winnipeg which look forward to welcoming the next Canadian lottery millionaire.
