There is even more to celebrate this holiday season for a Lotto 6/49 player who purchased a ticket in Surrey for last night’s draw.
The Lotto 6/49 ticket was the only one in Canada that matched all six numbers of 29, 34, 37, 38, 42 and 49 to win the $5-million Classic Jackpot.
The odds of winning the Classic 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.
So far in 2022, B.C. lottery players redeemed more than $111 million in winnings from Lotto 6/49.
Lotto 6/49 is a nationwide lottery game drawn on Wednesdays and Saturdays after 7:30 p.m. (PST). The Gold Ball Draw is a guaranteed prize draw where players will win either the Guaranteed Prize of $1 million, or the growing Gold Ball Jackpot that starts at $10 million. The Classic Jackpot offers a prize that is always $5 million. Players can purchase tickets at any lottery retailer or at PlayNow.com. Players can now check their lottery tickets anytime, anywhere on iOS and Android devices.
Be #GiftSmart This Holiday Season
BCLC is reminding British Columbians to gift responsibly and remove lottery products from their holiday shopping lists for kids. Research continues to demonstrate that children who have early exposure to gambling experiences are much more likely to develop a gambling problem, and although it may seem like a fun stocking stuffer for kids during this time of year, BCLC is reminding adults to only give lottery products to those aged 19 and older.
