Winning the lottery or even matching a few of the lucky numbers is a dream for many out there. At the beginning of September, a lucky lottery ticket holder chose the numbers that matched every number drawn.
The jackpot winner is yet to be announced and the winning prize has not been claimed as yet. With very little information provided by the Crown Corporation, the Lottery operator, all that is known is that the ticket was purchased in Atlantic Canada.
The lucky winner has 12 months from the announcement of the draw to claim their prize. The Crown Corporation has urged players in the region to come forward and claim the prize as soon as possible. Unclaimed prizes will be redistributed to fund future lotteries. All the winner has to do is call the Crown Corporation and further details will be provided.
Given that the lucky winner has not yet stepped forward, the winner could have come from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. The winner could even have come from the easternmost province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The closer to the due date, the Crown Corporation will release more details about the winning ticket, in order to catch the winner’s attention.
The prize was set at CA$18,243,990.50 and with such a huge prize, all lottery players were extremely excited. Wanting to make a claim on the winning jackpot, ticket sales prior to the draw sky-rocketed.
Lady luck certainly had quite a huge influence on the winning ticket. It is quite rare for one ticket to match every single number drawn. Whoever the ticket holder is, their lives are sure to be changed forever.
Lotto 6/49 is one of the most popular lottery games in Canada. Head over to your local retailer and you can purchase a ticket and play the odds. The cost of the ticket will be $3 with added extras at a cost of $1. You can choose to play Quick pick or select your numbers from a field of 1 to 49.
Whichever strategy you choose to employ when playing the lottery, you always have a chance of being a big winner or even walking away with a small piece of the pie. At such a small cost, there is nearly nothing to lose when trying your hand at a life-changing opportunity.
