Single Winning Ticket Bought In Toronto Area
TORONTO, Jan. 29 /CNW/ - For the second time in the past month, the
single winning ticket to last night's $50 million LOTTO MAX jackpot was purchased in the Toronto area.
"What an incredible month, having another single winning ticket in
Ontario on a big jackpot." said Wendy Montgomery, Vice President of
Lottery Marketing and Sales at OLG. "Make sure to check your ticket at
your local retailer, check your numbers on OLG.ca or call our Win! Line at 416.870.8946."
The previous single winning ticket for a $50 million LOTTO MAX jackpot
was won in the December 31, 2010 draw.
In addition to the jackpot, Ontario players are also holding winning
tickets for other major prizes including two $1 million MAXMILLIONS. The winning tickets were purchased in Toronto and Hamilton.
There are two winning tickets in Barrie and Brockville that will split
the second prize of $1,547,749 with two other tickets outside of Ontario for a prize of $386,937 each.
MAXMILLIONS are added to the game when the jackpot reaches an estimated
$50 million. MAXMILLIONS prizes are drawn separately from the LOTTO MAX
jackpot draw, which means that a LOTTO MAX ticket not only gives
players a chance at $50 million but also the chance to win any of the
$1 million MAXMILLIONS draws on the same date.
Since its launch in September 2009, Ontario LOTTO MAX players have won more than $365.6 million in prizes, including 6
jackpot wins and 84 winning MAXMILLIONS tickets from all across the
