Other wins of Canada lotteries
One of the winning Lotto tickets were sold in Quebec, and thanks to the ever-popular Lottery operator Lotto MAX, one very lucky player walked away with a fortune totaling CA$26.6 million.
Then couple of hours later again there was another winning ticket being sold, this time round in Owen Sound. The value of the Lotto 6/49 ticket was an incredible CA$33.3 million.
The lucky numbers were 2-6-13-19-21-32-40, with the bonus number 12. Matching the bonus number is not a requirement for winning the jackpot. Whenever Lotto prize money is won, players have exactly one year to claim their winnings, after which the money is returned into the next pot. All unclaimed funds are put towards bonus draws, and act as a show of goodwill on the parts of the operators, who are actually within their rights to retain the funds and distribute as they see fit.
By transforming the unclaimed funds into bonus jackpots, operators re-invest in the community instead of capitalizing on unclaimed money.
Every week offers yet another chance to strike it lucky. The last time that this type of generosity was paid out by the operator was a few days before Christmas where a joint office pool were the lucky recipients of a massive CA$60 million grand prize. It comes as no surprise that the members of the pool all resigned shortly after. Nine co-workers shared in the CA$60 million kitty.
The Ontario Lottery and Gambling Corporation as well other lotteries corporations regularly advises all players to check their tickets, as the winning tickets for all unclaimed prizes are surely somewhere in the winners pockets. Do you have a winning ticket?
