If you hear your neighbours shouting with glee sometime today, they might be multimillionaires. A winning ticket for Saturday's $30 million Lotto 6/49 jackpot was sold in Hamilton, according to a release from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation.
The name of the winner or winners has not yet been released.
A Hamilton man who had a $16.1 million winning ticket in a draw last summer is still waiting to claim his prize, as he owns a store that sells OLG tickets and has to go through a lengthy verification process before getting his cheque. If all goes well, the OLG will hand the money over to him by March 22.
This is the second time this year that a large 6/49 jackpot ticket was sold in Ontario: in January, a Collingwood resident claimed a $3.5 million Lotto 6/49 jackpot prize. A Toronto man also won $20 million in Lotto Max the same month.
If you think you might have the winning ticket, you can check your numbers online at OLG.ca.
The next LOTTO 6/49 jackpot draw on Wednesday, March 6 will be an estimated $3 million.
