One lucky winner has made Lottery history in British Columbia with the purchase of a winning Lotto Max ticket in Burnaby.
The $70 million dream prize came into focus for the as-yet unnamed individual with the winning numbers 2, 5, 8, 18, 23, 31 and 35.
According to the BC Lottery Corporation (BCLC), the odds of winning the Lotto Max jackpot are 1 in 33,294,800, making this an even more impressive feat.
While the winner of the ticket has not stepped forward to claim their prize, they still have 52 weeks from the draw date displayed on the ticket to take ownership of their windfall.
The winner’s name and the exact location of the ticket purchase will be revealed once the winning ticket has been verified.
This record breaking win brings this year’s total paid out by the province’s lottery to an impressive $163 million in Lotto Max winnings.
