If you bought a Lotto Max ticket for the March 19 draw, you could be a multimillionaire without even knowing it.
The British Columbia Lottery Corporation announced that one person won the $ 13 million jackpot. The ticket was purchased in the Prince George-Mount Robson area.
The winning British Columbia ticket was the only one sold across the province – and across Canada – to match the seven winning numbers: 2, 7, 8, 26, 30, 43 and 48. The odds of winning the jackpot Lotto Max are 1 in 33,294,800.
The winner has not yet come forward to claim their prize. All lottery prize winners have 52 weeks from the date of the draw printed on their ticket to register.
Of course, the longer the winner waits, the more interest he loses on his money. Some winning tickets are never claimed. Last week, a $ 1 million Lotto 6/49 ticket sold on Vancouver Island expired.
Unclaimed prizes for national draws, including Lotto Max and Lotto 6/49, are returned to the prize pool.
The retail location where the winning lottery ticket was purchased and the names of the lottery winners will be announced after the winner has shown up to claim their prize.
