Major jackpots were claimed with the help of a single lottery ticket purchase, a notion some Canadians could relate to. A Quebec player is now eligible for a cash payout of CA$32 million following the purchase of a Lotto MAX ticket ahead of the most recent draw. Meanwhile, a Milton player claimed his CA$25 million with the help of his Lotto 6/49 ticket.
Subramaniam Jeyakumaran is the lucky player bagging a hefty jackpot following the October 9 draw but the player took his time before he claimed it. Many lottery enthusiasts take their time before receiving their cash prize, as the amount is often a rather large one, demanding better financial management. This is what the player from Milton did and it is possible that this is what the Quebec winner could do as well.
Lotto MAX Gives More
October 18 came with a Lotto MAX jackpot reaching CA$32 million. Following weeks of no winners, the amount grew to this extent and many Canadians were ready to see it swell to the lottery game cap – CA$70 million. However, a player from Quebec managed to match all numbers drawn last Friday and become eligible for the cash payout of CA$32 million.
For the time being, nobody has contacted Loto-Quebec in order to claim their cash prize. The winner has 52 weeks to do so before the expiry date comes and they no longer have the right to bag it. As for the next Lotto MAX draw, it is projected to bring a cash prize of nearly CA$10 million. The Lotto 6/49 winner who recently received his CA$25,470,952.30 said that he does not plan to quit his job, at least for now.
What he would do instead is work on his plans for holidays and travel the world with his favorite people. New Zealand and Australia are among the top locations he wants to visit with the recent windfall. It should also be taken into account that the lottery retail location at Erin Mills Town Center in Mississauga is about to bag one percent of the cash payout.
Lotto 6/49 Is Generous Too
As it has been confirmed, Lotto 6/49 is the gift that keeps on giving, as the minimal Main prize of CA$5 million would have to be split between two tickets. One of the tickets with identical number combinations was sold in Ontario, whereas the other was purchased in Quebec. Now two players are eligible for CA$2.5 million and they also have 12 months to claim the prize.
Moreover, the most recent Lotto 6/49 draw saw a player from Saskatoon match the number combination for the CA$1-million guaranteed prize. October 23 would come with a Lotto 6/49 Main prize once again reaching CA$5 million. A Quebec couple became Canada’s latest lotto millionaires with a Quebec Max ticket.
Richard Deschenes and Yolande Paquet claimed their CA$1-million prize that would change their lives. Place de Ville in Sept-Îles was the retail spot that would benefit from a 1-percent allocation of the Main prize. The two of them are ready to travel the world and explore a fresh new perspective on life.
