London, Ontario is currently preparing for major gaming expansion that would make the area a much more appealing one but while this is happening, a windfall has made its way there. Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation recently announced that the most recent Lotto 6/49 draw ended up being a fortunate one for a ticket purchased there.
A lucky Londoner is about to bag a hefty CA$9.1 million jackpot once he or she contacts the lottery corporation. Lottery jackpots are a quick way to success, an opportunity eyed by millions of Canadians on a weekly basis.
Lotto MAX and Lotto 6/49 are the two most popular lottery offerings across the country and this is visible by the regular interest people demonstrate. The most recent Lotto 6/49 draw took place on Saturday and ever since then the possible lucky winner has been a topic of wide discussion.
CA$9.1M Jackpot Awaits Winner
At first, the information issued pointed towards Ontario as a general region where the purchase took place. Such a pinpointing is possible thanks to the accurate database Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has, aiming to reveal more information as time progresses.
Now it has been clarified that the winning ticket had been purchased in London prior to the Saturday Lotto 6/49 draw. All residents of London are advised to check their pockets and ensure that they have not misplaced their lottery ticket, as it could change their life.
The lucky numbers drawn this Saturday were 04, 21, 30, 41, 44, and 46 with the bonus number 05. For some of the Lotto 6/49 players, they might have a special significance and this might be the case with the winner themselves.
The winner has 52 weeks to claim their hefty prize and begin the second phase of their life. July 20’s draw was also generous with its additional prizes that come with every lottery draw. A ticket purchased in the Toronto area prior to the Saturday regular draw is now eligible for a CA$1-million prize and has 52 weeks to bag it.
London Bags Casino Cash
This Wednesday comes with another regular weekly draw of the generous Lotto 6/49 and this time the jackpot reaches approximately CA$5 million. In addition to the Main Prize, additional one would also be up for grabs, once again amounting to CA$1 million. July 10 was another special day for Lotto 6/49 enthusiasts, as a ticket sold in Gatineau claimed the CA$7-million jackpot.
Colette Laberge and Mario Lafrenière are now multimillionaires after a lucky lottery ticket purchase. The numbers to their winning ticket matched those drawn on July 10’s regular draw. Those were 07, 15, 22, 28, 43, 49, plus the bonus one 45. About a week later, the couple was ready to bag their prize and have their lives transformed.
Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has many ways to support the local communities, quarterly casino allocations being one of them. London recently bagged CA$1,619,107 for the operation of Gateway Casinos London. The gaming revenue allocation was generated over the April 1 – June 30 period, essentially swelling the overall amount of allocations to the host community to CA$79 million.
