New Year’s Eve promises to be an extraordinary celebration for at least one person who resides in Metro Vancouver.
A Lotto 6/49 player has won nearly $9.5 million after they purchased a ticket in West Vancouver.
The ticket won the Dec. 30, 2020 draw to win exactly $9,342,568.90.
The B.C. ticket was the only one sold across Canada to match all six numbers drawn for the multimillion-dollar jackpot: 7, 14, 30, 32, 38, and 45.
According to the BCLC, the odds of winning a Lotto 6/49 jackpot are 1 in 13,983,816.
All lottery prize winners have 52 weeks from the draw date printed on their ticket to come forward to claim their prize. The specific retail location where the winning lottery ticket was purchased, and the lottery winners’ name(s) will be announced after the winner has come forward to claim their prize.
In 2020, B.C. lottery players have redeemed more than $105 million in winnings from Lotto 6/49 and BCLC paid out more than $691 million in lottery prizes.
Lotto 6/49 is a nationwide lottery game drawn on Wednesdays and Saturdays after 7:30 p.m. (PST).
The BCLC reminds you: "Remember, play for fun, not to make money."
