One of four winning tickets for $50 Million jackpot sold in Delta

08/06/2015

Lotto Max players in B.C. should be checking their numbers this week because one of the winning tickets for the jackpot in the June 5 draw was sold in B.C.

There are four winning tickets from Friday’s $50 Million Lotto Max jackpot, each entitled to a share worth $12.5 million. One ticket was purchased in Delta, B.C., one in Ontario, and two in the Western Canada Lottery Corporation’s jurisdiction.

50 Maxmillions prizes of $1 million were also up for grabs in Friday’s draw with two winning tickets sold in B.C. – one from Kamloops and the other through PlayNow.com, each winning a share of a Maxmillions prize.

In another multiple winner scenario, a ticket purchased in Williams Lake matched 6 out of 7 numbers plus the bonus which is good for a prize worth $191,154.

Winners have one year from the draw date printed on the ticket to claim their prize and will join a growing list of British Columbians who have struck it rich with Lotto Max.

The jackpot for this Friday’s Lotto Max will be approximately $38 million.
