May 29, 2022


A Lotto 6/49 ticket purchased in New Westminster for last night’s Lotto 6/49 draw scored the incredible $10.9-million jackpot. 

The ticket was the only one purchased across Canada to match all six winning numbers: 6, 13, 15, 29, 45, and 48.

It’s the fourth time in less than three months that a Lotto 6/49 ticket purchased in B.C. has won the jackpot. 

On March 9, 2022, Chilliwack’s John and Travis Bonner won a scintillating $8 million; a week later on March 16, 2022, Burnaby’s Lana and Joery Leung won $6 million; and on April 6, 2022, Surrey’s Nang (Paul) Trinh won an incredible $18.7 million. 

The odds of winning a Lotto 6/49 jackpot are 1 in 13,983,816. 

All lottery prize winners have 52 weeks from the draw date printed on their ticket to come forward to claim their prize. The specific retail location where the winning lottery ticket was purchased, and the lottery winners’ name(s) will be announced after the winner has come forward to claim their prize.

In 2021, B.C. lottery players redeemed more than $99 million in winnings from Lotto 6/49.
