Lottery windfalls are among the most popular topics of discussion across Canada, as they are able to change people’s lives in a matter of seconds on a weekly basis. Lotto MAX is one of the most popular lottery opportunities for gaming available out there and its most recent draw was a historical one.
Someone in Richmond is now eligible for a jackpot reaching approximately CA$60 million as a result of matching all seven of the winning numbers on July 26. When it comes to lottery jackpots and the opportunities of winning big they offer, players have the chance to have their lives transformed every week.
Lotto MAX is the most generous among Canada’s lottery offerings with a cap reaching CA$70 million. Last week’s jackpot was close to reaching this maximum prize but fortunately for one player, it was snatched shortly prior to that. Richmond is the location that would very soon welcome the hefty jackpot.
Jackpot Awaits Winer
British Columbia Lottery Corporation was quick to announce the good news that the latest lotto draw was a winning one. For many weeks, all eyes were set on Lotto MAX and its seemingly unreachable Main Prize.
The collective desire to see the jackpot be claimed by someone achieved its goals and a single ticket sold in Richmond is now eligible for the grand prize.
All lottery enthusiasts in the area are encouraged to check their Lotto MAX tickets and make sure that they have not misplaced the piece of paper that could change their life. Now that the official announcement has been made, it is a waiting game, as the winner might take their time to approach the new situation and make the best of it.
Whoever is in possession of the winning ticket would have 52 weeks to claim their prize. This is the mandatory period for prize bagging, making it impossible for players to receive their award past the deadline point. The clock is ticking now.
Tuesday Brings Next Draw
In addition to the Main prize eyed by millions of Canadian, this draw also came with as many as six set CA$1-million prizes commonly referred to the Maxmillion ones. As it happened, none of them was claimed by a ticket sold anywhere in Canada. However, Richmond was able to see another cash prize, this time for matching six of the regular numbers, in addition to the bonus one. This meant that CA$105,837.60 could soon be claimed by a local.
The winning numbers were 11, 15, 17, 20, 24, 25, 50, plus the bonus 30 and for some players, they might have a special significance. Even though Lotto 6/49 has been more generous in the past weeks, Lotto MAX has also shown its potential with some hefty jackpots. The last days of May saw a ticket purchased in Ottawa eligible for claiming CA$20-million jackpot.
The fortunate piece of paper has the numbers 2, 14, 15, 23, 27, 44, and 45. Last month was also lucky for this lottery game, as June 14 saw a CA$19-million jackpot being bagged by two lottery tickets on the Prairies, as well as in Ontario. The next Lotto MAX regular draw would take place on July 30 and the projected jackpot is going to reach CA$16 million.
