3 winning lottery tickets purchased in Metro Vancouver

Out of the four winning tickets for the record-breaking $63.4-million lottery, two were purchased in Surrey and one in Vancouver.

Six numbers will be changing the lives of three ticket holders in Metro Vancouver.

On Saturday night, the numbers were drawn from a record-breaking $63.4-million Lotto 6/49 jackpot.

Out of the four winning tickets, two were purchased in Surrey and one in Vancouver. The fourth was purchased in Alberta.

OLG released the winning numbers Saturday night for a record $55-million jackpot.

Chris Fairclough, spokesman for the British Columbia Lottery Corporation, said the winners have yet to come forward.

"Each winner is going to receive $15.8 million," he said.

"It's extremely rare to see four winning tickets  for one jackpot... so this is signifiant and then to have 3 of the 4 winning tickets in B.C. is something I've seen at my time in BCLC."

The winning numbers are: 02, 10, 17, 19, 44, 47. The bonus number is 40.

Winners have 52 weeks from the draw date to collect their prize.

The previous record 6/49 jackpot of $54.3 million, was won in an October 2005 draw by a group of 17 oil and gas workers in Camrose, Alta.
