Somebody in the Ottawa region is about to get a whole lot richer. If you bought a ticket for the Lotto 6/49 draw on Wednesday evening, now might be a good time to check those numbers again. One lucky player from the capital city has got a $3.5 million winning Lotto 6/49 ticket in their pocket, and they may not even know it yet!
If you played the Lotto 6/49 last night, you may want to dig out your ticket from your wallet or back pocket.
According to CTV News, one of Wednesday's winning tickets was sold in Ottawa, so somebody in the city is about to get $3.5 million richer.
This means an unknowing Ottawa local is probably walking around right now, totally unaware that they’ve just become a multi-millionaire!
If you haven't checked your digits yet, the February 19 numbers were: 05, 06, 13, 23, 44, 49, + 40 bonus.
If you didn't buy your ticket in the capital city, there's still hope for you yet. Last night's draw produced some other hefty wins, including another $3.5 million winner in Quebec.
The guaranteed $1 million prize was won by a ticket that was sold in Brampton.
While there's only two jackpot winners this week, it's worth double-checking and triple-checking those numbers. Today might just be your lucky day!
Players can check their digits on the OLG Lottery App or by clicking on the Winning Numbers page on the official OLG website.
Earlier this year, one winner in Vaughan won a shocking $50 million in the Lotto Max draw, and it took them a while to come forward and collect their winnings.
Similarly, the person who won the $70 million jackpot in Toronto also had a delayed response, despite winning the biggest prize in Canadian lottery history.
If you're looking for a bit of luck ahead of the weekend, you should think about heading to Quebec's Montérégie region. Here, two winning multi-million dollar Lotto 6/49 tickets were sold in exactly the same area, less than two weeks apart!
Saturday night’s Lotto 6/49 draw will have a jackpot of $5 million, as well as the usual guaranteed $1 million prize draw.
