Jackpot! B.C.’s Largest Ever Lottery Prize Won

27/07/2019

Someone who purchased a Lotto Max ticket in Richmond for last night’s draw has millions of reasons – tens of millions, in fact – to celebrate this summer, after winning B.C.’s largest-ever lottery prize.

The single winning Lotto Max ticket matched all seven numbers from across Canada to win the whopping $60-million jackpot on the July 26, 2019 draw.

BCLC will announce the specific retail location in Richmond that sold the $60-million ticket after the winner has come forward to claim the life-changing prize.

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

JACKPOT FACTS:

  • The largest prizes ever won in B.C. were three $50 million Lotto Max jackpots in October 2010, March 2014 and in April 2016
  • In May, Canadians who play Lotto Max saw significant changes with the introduction of a brand-new Tuesday draw, allowing jackpots to grow more quickly
  • The main Lotto Max jackpot can now grow as high as $70 million
  • The odds of winning the main Lotto Max jackpot are 1 in 33,294,800 per $5 play
  • The overall odds to win a prize are 1 in 7 per $5 play
