For some, this year might be one to forget but for at least one British Columbian it will be particularly unforgettable, for their bank account.
The B.C. Lottery Corporation says a Lotto 6/49 ticket purchased in West Vancouver matched all six numbers drawn for the $9.4-million jackpot on Wednesday night (Dec. 30). This ticket was the only one in Canada to have a perfect match.
The drawn numbers are: 7, 14, 30, 32, 38, and 45.
The winner has about 52 weeks to come forward and cash in on their massive return.
Drawn every Wednesday and Saturday nights, Lotto 6/49 has paid out over $105 million to British Columbians in winning this year, with BCLC paying out an $691-million in 2020 across all gambling and lottery games.
To put this winning in perspective, the odds of winning a Lotto 6/49 jackpot is about one-in-14 million, which is almost the population of Ontario.
