The Final Countdown: Five Days Left Until $15-Million Unclaimed Lotto Max Ticket Purchased in Vancouver Expires

August 08, 2022


The clock is ticking as there’s only five days left to claim a winning $15-million Lotto Max ticket purchased in Vancouver that is set to expire after midnight this Saturday, August 13, 2022. 

BCLC is encouraging players who purchased a ticket for the August 13, 2021 draw in Vancouver to check their tickets for the winning numbers: 1-14-17-20-28-32-38. 

Were you in Vancouver last August? Be sure to check your beach bags, suitcases, glove boxes or anywhere else where you may have tucked away a Lotto Max ticket. 

If the ticket expires, the $15 million will go back into the national prize pool for future draws and will be the largest ever unclaimed lottery prize in B.C.

To protect the integrity of the prize claim process, the specific retail location where the winning lottery ticket was purchased, and the lottery winner’s name, will be announced after the winner has come forward to claim the prize.

Players can check their tickets at any BCLC lottery retailer in B.C., anytime online or on the BCLC Lotto! App here.

All lottery prize winners have 52 weeks from the draw date printed on their ticket to come forward to claim their prize. Learn more on how to claim a prize here. 

So far in 2022, B.C. lottery players have redeemed more than $64 million from Lotto Max. Lotto Max is a nationwide lottery game drawn on Tuesdays and Fridays after 7:30 p.m. (PST).
