Lotto MAX is among the popular draw-based lottery games across the Canadian provinces and territories which is why its Main prize is in constant growth. Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation recently announced that a ticket sold in Nepean has become eligible for a cash payout of CA$15 million and the winner has a total of 52 weeks to contact the Crown corporation.
Physical distancing is a practice many individuals implement at the moment and this allows them to explore new gaming opportunities, hobbies, and more. Many Canadians have made their first steps in the gaming world over the past few months thanks to the online products available on the official platforms of the Crown corporations. The increased interest meant greater prizes.
May 12 brought the most recent Lotto MAX draw coming with a Main prize amounting to some CA$15 million. The increased ticket purchases led to the swelling of the jackpot, as well as the subsequent even greater purchasing of tickets. All eyes were set on the prize, as players were already making plans for investments, dream purchases, and travels once the situation around the globe goes back to its normal state.
Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation made it clear that there is a ticket sold in Nepean prior to the lottery draw on Tuesday that is eligible for the grand jackpot of CA$15 million. Lottery enthusiasts across Ontario are advised to check their tickets for the most recent lottery draw and make sure that they are not missing a chance of a lifetime.
The winner has 12 months to reach out and claim their prize. Individuals have the chance to check their tickets via Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s website where the numbers are published, as well as with the help of the popular mobile app. It is convenient because it allows them to simply scan the ticket and see if they are the winner of not.
The OLG Lottery App prevents mistakes from taking place and many players prefer it as a ticket checking method when they are in a rush and need information fast. It could be recalled that the Crown corporation closed its prize center a couple of weeks ago taking into account the dynamically changing situation and social distancing.
Winners often travel from a distant location to collect their prize and this could put staff members at risk. Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation advises the winner of this prize to keep the Lotto MAX ticket safe. The first step would be a validation of the ticket which happens at a retail location of the Crown corporation. The winner would have to keep the ticket and the validation slip in a safe place until the prize center reopens for the public.
May 15 is about to bring the next Lotto MAX weekly draw and players across the country are already buying their tickets for it. The Main prize coming with it amounts to CA$10 million and it could be bagged by one of the ticket purchasers. On the following day, May 16, Lotto 6/49 is expected to bring its Main prize of CA$16 million to the public.
