An incredible lottery feat has been achieved in Ontario, Canada, by a single ticket holder. A record-breaking Lotto 6/49 draw took place this past weekend with a staggering jackpot of $64 million. The previous record was $63 million. Read further to find out more about who won and had their lives changed instantaneously.
The record-breaking prize was won by a single ticket in the Mississauga area of Ontario. It is just outside of Toronto. One small lottery outlet in the city sold the ticket that matched all six of the main winning numbers. They were:
The winner who matched all these winning numbers made history like a previous Lotto 6/49 winner who also survived being struck by lightning before his big win!
It still remains unclear whether the ticket holder is a single person or a syndicate, but regardless of whether the prize will need to be shared, they still broke the record and every player will win an immense amount of money. There were also several fantastic consolation prizes paid out the night after the draw. Amongst these winners, there was one winner of $1 million in the province of Quebec with thanks to the Lotto 6/49 guaranteed prize draw.
Just last week there were also three lucky residents of British Columbia who won themselves $1 million the same draw. It seemed that this jackpot truly was a lucky one for players. Truly record-breaking luck, too!
On Saturday night, the night of the draw, corner stores and lottery kiosks were filled up with eager customers hoping to get their hands on the jackpot. In total, there were more than three million winners at other prize levels. Matching two numbers got the players a free play, matching five main numbers and the bonus ball won them $116,915.80. The next Lotto 6/49 will be worth $5 million.
The last record-breaking Canadian Lottery jackpot ever to have been won happened in April 2013. Four lucky ticket holders split $63.4 million between each other, each taking home around $16 million. Which means that if this recent winner from Mississauga is a single ticket holder, they will jump to the top of the lottery’s richest list. Many Canadians are feeling the anticipation in the air as they eagerly await to hear who won the record amount of money.
You can also have a slice of jackpot pie. You just need to get your tickets in!
We wish you the best of luck!
