Over the past few days, many lottery enthusiasts were lucky enough to become eligible for a grand windfall that would change the grand scheme of their life. Lotto 6/49 was especially giving to a player hailing from Nanaimo, as their ticket is now eligible for a jackpot of CA$5 million.
However, in the meantime, nobody managed to snatch the Lotto MAX CA$30-million jackpot coming with Friday’s regular lotto draw. British Columbia Lottery Corporation issues information regarding its winners and their place of residence, giving heads up to people to check their pockets and potentially locate their winning tickets.
There is a new multimillionaire residing in Nanaimo eligible for a cash prize of CA$5 million. Whoever is in possession of the ticket managed to match the numbers drawn 2, 17, 24, 25, 40, and 43. They have as many as 52 weeks to claim their prize.
Tuesday Draw Brings CA$40-million Prize
While the Lotto 6/49 is the lottery that keeps on giving, Lotto MAX’ Main prize continues swelling. This Tuesday is about to feature a jackpot reaching nearly CA$40 million, witnessing an increased interest in ticket purchasing.
The most recent lottery draw reached Main prize rates of CA30 million, but as it turned out, nobody managed to make it to the largest cash prize coming with it. It is a matter of time before someone manages to reach the generous cash prizes in the foreseeable future.
Loto-Quebec also chimed in with the announcement that there is a new millionaire in Vaudreuil-Dorion. The Greater Montreal suburb is where Douglas Smith hails from. He is fond of Lotto 6/49 and the gaming potential it has, but he is also going to remember July 24 as a special day.
This is when the winning draw for him took place, making him the next lotto millionaire. British Columbia also congratulated a Nanoose Bay retired teacher on his CA$675,000 Set for Life windfall. Patrick Shannon is now much richer than several days ago and he is planning to improve the sailboat he is currently working on. The windfall is about to guarantee it would have brand new sails.
Orangeville Players Seek Winning Ticket
Loto-Quebec also made it clear that two Monteregie friends would have to share a CA$75,050 Banco prize. Guy Coutu and Lucien Tremblay go back a long way and they are both Banco fans which makes the winning even more fitting. August 18 was their lucky day, as they became eligible for the cash windfall that was bagged recently.
The numbers they use are all special dates for them and this time they brought them good fortune. Meanwhile, Ontario has also performed well, as Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation recently announced that Orangeville is among the most fortunate areas of the province when it comes to lottery winnings.
Together with Orillia, the two locations made it to the list of areas that have managed to attract several hefty lottery jackpots over the past five years. It could be recalled that August 17 came with the special Lotto 6/49 draw featuring a CA$9-million jackpot.
A player that had purchased a ticket in Orangeville is now eligible for the prize. Last year saw another Lotto 6/49 jackpot making it to the town, this time reaching CA$20.4 million.
