Someone who bought a Lotto Max ticket in the Greater Toronto area is waking up $ 70 million richer after winning the biggest prize in Canadian history.
"We don't know who has the ticket," OLG spokeswoman Dita Kuhtey told CTV News Toronto on Tuesday. "As people move forward, we can share more information."
"A $ 70 million jackpot is even more than a life change; you can change many lives. It's all about making big dreams come true."
Kuhtey did not say exactly where the winning ticket was bought, but said the person who wins should be sure to sign the back immediately.
"It helps show ownership," Kuhtey said. "You also want to go to a dealer and validate the ticket."
Six million dollar prizes were also won in Tuesday's draw. Winning tickets were sold in Brampton, Hamilton, Niagara Region, Oshawa, Ottawa and Pickering.
Two tickets worth $ 500,000 each were sold at Niagara Falls and Perth County. Two tickets each, valued at $ 333,333.40, were sold in Richmond Hill and Toronto. Two other tickets, valued at $ 197,679.90, were also sold in Brampton and the York area.
In 2015, the Lotto Max $ 60 million raffle winning ticket was also sold in Brampton. At the time, it was the biggest prize in the history of Lotto Max.
The OLG says that since the launch of Lotto Max in 2009, Ontario players have won over $ 5 billion. Lotto Max draws take place twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Lotto Max's next jackpot is estimated at $ 33 million.
The winning numbers are 03, 08, 12, 14, 17, 18 and 29 Bonus 11.
