Canadian Lotto Winners Pave the Way for Carefree Future

Lottery offerings are here to change lives and bring a spark of joy to the everyday schedule whether they are instant ones or draw-based products. Lotto MAX showed that it is able to make people happy even if they do not bag the Main prize, as a couple hailing from Lake Cowichan could confirm. Michele Zaharia and Mark Langton bagged their Extra prize amounting to CA$500,000.

This year might be a special one for two Lotto MAX fans that appear to be on a lucky streak. The couple from Lake Cowichan are about to celebrate their love with a wedding this summer but they recently got more reasons to celebrate. The two of them opted for the Extra lottery offering and this was their lucky opportunity.

Dream Wedding in the Plans

December 31, 2019 was their lucky day as the last draw for the year had a prize for them. The Lotto MAX regular draw was generous enough to link their ticket with the Extra prize and make them eligible for a cash payout of CA$500,000. The winning ticket with the four numbers needed for this prize was purchased at the Duncan Walmart ahead of the December 31, 2019 draw.

Ms. Zaharia was the one that checked the British Columbia Lottery Corporation mobile app and found out their ticket was the winning one. The app allows players to scan their tickers making the process much easier. The prize is going to cover the couple’s mortgage, as well as the dream wedding dress. Lotto 6/49 was another popular lottery offering for players across the nation, as an Ontario player could confirm.

Logan Harry of Dunchurch recently bagged his CA$1,000,000 prize coming with the January 29, 2020 Lotto 6/49 draw. The guaranteed prize was joined by a second CA$10 one thanks to one of the lottery selections he had chosen. The 18-year-old lottery fan was excited to bag his prize, reporting that this is his first windfall.

Young Millionaire

Now he is ready to invest the CA$1-million prize and spend some time having fun. Ontario also saw another grand windfall make its way to Alliston. Pamela Horan and her mother Diane Mason recently became eligible for a cash payout reaching CA$231,305.10. The February 1 Lotto 6/49 draw was a lucky one for the two of them, as they managed to match five of the six needed numbers, as well as the bonus one.

The decision to purchase a ticket was a spontaneous one, as it often happens. Shell on Yonge Street in East Gwillimbury was the retail location that sold them the Lotto 6/49 ticket. Ms. Horan used the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation mobile app to scan her ticket and learn that the two of them are now much richer. The windfall is going to cover their debt and secure them a carefree future.

Back to British Columbia, where a ticket is now eligible for a cash payout amounting to CA$500,000. Whoever is in possession of the winning ticket has 2 weeks to contact the Crown corporation and claim their prize. The numbers printed on it must be 9-12-45-66, as it was confirmed and the ticket was sold in Dawson Creek ahead of the February 7 Lotto MAX draw.
