Someone in British Columbia woke up this morning as a multi-millionaire after matching all seven winning numbers in last night’s Lotto Max draw to win the $30.8-million jackpot.

The seven winning numbers were 7, 12, 14, 18, 46, 47 and 49. 

The ticket was purchased on BCLC’s PlayNow.com, which is the province’s only legal, regulated gambling website, where B.C. players can make lottery purchases, place sports bets and enjoy online casino games.

The odds of winning a Lotto Max jackpot are 1 in 33,294,800 per $5 play.

All lottery prize winners have 52 weeks from the draw date printed on their ticket to come forward to claim their prize. The lottery winners’ name(s) will be announced after the winner has come forward to claim their prize.

So far in 2022, B.C. lottery players redeemed more than $64 million in winnings from Lotto Max.

The largest lottery prize ever won in B.C. was a $70 million Lotto Max jackpot, won in September 2021.
