This weekend was quite an eventful one for Canada’s most popular lottery offerings, as several players might get their lives changes in the upcoming weeks. Lotto 6/49’s most recent draw came with a jackpot reaching CA$9 million and a lucky winner is now eligible for it.
The single ticket sold in the Ontario region has exactly 52 weeks to claim the grand windfall before it expires. There are players that look forward to every single lottery draw, as it might be their lucky day. Lotto 6/49 and Lotto MAX are among those offerings attracting the undivided attention of many players.
An Ontario enthusiast is now the newest lotto millionaire, as the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation confirmed. We are talking about a single winning ticket, so the CA$9-million jackpot prize is not going to be divided by several winners.

Quebec player should also check their tickets, as there is one particular lottery enthusiast that is now CA$1-million richer. The guaranteed prizes coming with every draw give a second chance to those who failed to make it to the Main prize. August 21 is about to see a Lotto 6/49 draw featuring a jackpot reaching C$5 million.
Meanwhile, nearly four weeks since Lotto MAX’s draw came with a CA$60-million jackpot, there has not been a single winner contacting the British Columbia Lottery Corporation. It is known that the individual having purchased a ticket hails from Richmond, but for the time being, they appear to be hesitant about bagging their fortune.
July 26, 2020 is the deadline for receiving it. Once it expires, the player would no longer have the chance to obtain it, regardless of the reasons for the delay. This recent Lotto MAX draw also came with as many as 15 Maxmillions additional prizes amounting to CA$1 million. Five of those were claimed and players would soon make their way to their closest prize claim centers to bag their fortune.
Next Lotto MAX Draw Brings CA$25M
Another player hailing from Regina recently bagged one of the CA$1-million prizes guaranteed by a Lotto 6/49 draw that took place on August 7. Kurtis Dobbin is the lucky player that is now a millionaire and just like many other lotto winners, he could not believe his eyes when he saw that he is a winner.
Mr. Dobbin used the Saskatchewan Lotteries official mobile app to scan the ticket.

It guarantees a quick scan that might be able to change a player’s life. Mr. Dobbin plans to cover some debt and support his family with a portion of the cash.
In addition to that, he would also like to travel overseas, as this has always been a dream of his. Lotto MAX will have its next draw on August 20 and the estimated jackpot it comes with amounts to CA$25 million. Rapidly growing as always, this Main prize makes the lottery offering even more appealing to players.
