For the people closely following lottery jackpots and everything surrounding Lotto MAX and Lotto 6/49, the past few weeks have been more than exciting. Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation recently reported a ticket sold in Mississauga is now eligible for a Lotto 6/49 jackpot reaching CA$9 million.
In the meantime, the winner of Lotto MAX CA$60-million jackpot has yet to claim their fortune. Even though people make plans for various things, life often gets in the way of things and changes them beyond recognition.
Players purchase a lottery ticket for the upcoming regular draw, but something happens and the grand windfall fails to reach its rightful owner. It could be as simple as misplacing the ticket and forgetting about it, or fear of major change of one’s life. More often than not, it remains unknown and the unclaimed jackpot remains unclaimed past the 52-week expiry date.
Winners Take Their Time
It is still too early to determine whether this would be the case with the giant Lotto MAX jackpot that came with the July 26 draw. Once again, Lotto MAX proved its generosity and delivered a CA$60-million jackpot at the end of July.
All eyes were set on it, but as it turns out, the single winning ticket eligible for it has yet to change its purchaser’s life. Several days after the winning draw, the winner who had purchased it in Richmond has yet to contact British Columbia Lottery Corporation and discuss all the details around the jackpot ceremony that is in order.
The winning numbers for that draw were 11, 15, 17, 20, 24, 25, 50, and bonus number 30, and all ticket purchasers are advised to check their pockets, purses, and homes.
Another grand win could soon make its way to Ontario, this time thanks to the Lotto 6/49 most recent draw July 31 was a special day for one player eager to bring some changes to their life, as the weekly draw brought a CA$9-million jackpot prize. Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation was quick to check its player database.
Bigger and Beter Jackpots
The winning ticket for this week’s draw was sold in Mississauga prior to July 31 and whoever is in possession of the lucky piece of paper has 52 weeks to bag their prize. As for the fortunate numbers drawn, those were 02, 11, 19, 35, 39, 48, plus the bonus one 17.
The lottery corporation reminds that there is still time for the winner to get in touch with Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation. The next Lotto 6/49 draw is going to take place on August 3 and come with an estimated jackpot of CA$5 million and projections of considerable action have been made.
The July 31 draw was also generous for another player, this time hailing from Kamloops. The renowned Extra draw made it possible for a British Columbian to become eligible for a windfall of CA$500,000. This was possible with the matching of four numbers 1, 17, 74, and 79.
