Check Your Tickets — The Lotto 6/49 Jackpot Has Been Won & Someone In Canada Is $64 M Richer
It might just be you. 👀
The Lotto 6/49 winning numbers for April 15 are out and one lucky Canadian will be taking home a huge chunk of change.
The gold ball prize was selected, meaning there was $64 million available to be won and someone did just that.
No one bought a winning ticket for the Classic Draw so that $5 million prize will not be claimed.

This is only the second time that the lottery has reached $64 million, with the last time being back in 2015 when a woman in Mississauga claimed the massive amount.
If the gold ball hadn't been drawn on April 15, the next draw would have had a record-breaking jackpot of $66 million and would have eventually topped out at $68 million, which is the highest it can go.
In January, an 18-year-old student from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, made history with the Gold Ball Draw when she won $48 million. It was her first time ever buying a ticket and it resulted in her being the youngest person to have ever won an amount like that.
The next Lotto 6/49 draw will have the usual $5 million available in the Classic Draw with either $1 million up for grabs in the Guaranteed Prize or $10 million up for grabs in the Gold Ball Draw.
Tickets for that game are available for purchase until 10:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, April 19.
