Aldergrove, B.C. Lotto 6/49 Ticket Claims CA$24m

Lotto 6/49 is among the most popular gaming offerings because of the easy access players have to it and the lucrative prizes coming with it on a weekly basis. BCLC confirms that a ticket sold in Aldergrove has become eligible for the Main prize amounting to some CA$24 million coming with the latest Lotto 6/49 draw.

British Columbia Lottery Corporation recently made it clear that there is a new lottery winner in the province, thanks to the most recent Lotto 6/49 draw coming with a hefty prize. Whoever is in possession of the winning ticket has a total of 52 weeks to claim their prize and become Canadaโ€™s latest millionaire. May 27 will forever be remembered as a special day.

Lotto 6/49

The numbers drawn during the Lotto 6/49 draw were 7, 17, 18, 22, 28, and 34 and there was a single ticket sold in British Columbia able to match them. Perhaps they have a special significance for the winner who had chosen them ahead of the regular Lotto 6/49 draw. The particular prize they became eligible for is CA$24,369,459.

Matching six of the numbers was enough for the ticket sold in Aldergrove to become a truly special one. For the time being, the Crown corporation has not announced the specific retail location where the ticket was purchased at, but it should be taken into account that the store is going to be eligible for a cash payout amounting to one percent of the CA$24 million. This information is about to be unveiled once the individual claims their prize.

For the time being, all lottery fans across the province are advised to check their lottery tickets and make sure they have not misplaced them or lost them. This could be their chance of changing their life for good and claiming their prize in a timely manner. They can scan their ticket via the BCLC mobile app.

Main Prizes Galore

They also have the chance to check the ticket online and make sure it is the winning one. The next step for them would be to contact the British Columbia Lottery Corporation Customer Support at 1-866-815-0222. This is going to kickstart the prize claiming process that requires slightly different steps during this unprecedented time. Once the winner has confirmed they are in possession of the ticket, they should hold on to it.

The Crown corporation made it clear that retail locations are about to begin their reopening phase over the upcoming weeks. Lottery enthusiasts making their way are expected to see many new safety measures introduced to the familiar shops, including plexiglass shields and special marks on the floor, that would guarantee people keep physical distance while making their purchase.

May 30 is about to bring the upcoming Lotto 6/49 jackpot and this time it will amount to some CA$5 million which is also the minimal cash prize one could grab. It could be recalled that only recently, Lotto MAX made one Brampton resident CA$15 million richer, as Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation confirmed.
