Saskatoon resident wins $50m Lotto Max jackpot

A lucky Saskatoon resident has had a brilliant start to the New Year, claiming a massive $50 million prize. The lucky ticket matched all seven of the drawn from the 07 January draw.

This wasn’t the only big winner on the day with one player in Ontario and another in the Atlantic provinces picking six out of seven of the winning numbers, with the bonus number, awarding them a split prize of $533,748.30. The draw also generated two Maxmillion prizes which are also unclaimed at this time.

This impressive win falls just short of the province’s second-largest lottery win in October 2021 when Saskatchewan resident Matthew Poppel won $55 million.

Winning Ways

Saskatoon has had more than its fair share of winners over the past few months with at least three other new lottery millionaires emerging.

The Lotto Max jackpot has remained unclaimed for several weeks and the currently unknown winner has up to 52 weeks to step forward and claim their prize. And the location of the ticket purchase will remain under wraps until then.

There are two Lotto Max jackpot draws held every week and the massive jackpot prizes that pay out with regularity have become highly popular with players looking to catch a life-changing windfall. The maximum possible jackpot is $70,000,000 and if the main prize is large enough, several Maxmillion prizes worth $1,000,000 each will also be awarded.

B.C. & Ontario win

British Columbia has also had a recent streak of luck with two large lottery prizes going to lucky winners within the province. Arthur and Margaret Lyon from Surrey won CA$1 million from a Lotto 6/49 draw in November 2021 and Susan Dyson from Vancouver was awarded another $1 million prize on New Year’s Day.

Ontario has also got off to a winning start with Elizabeth Lumbo and Arlene Lumbo, from Toronto landing a breath-taking $44 million jackpot from Lotto Max. The former pair opted to split and split the prize down the middle.
