No one has claimed a Lotto Max prize worth $1 million.

The winning ticket for the Aug. 6, 2010, draw was bought in Dartmouth, N.S. The deadline to claim the prize was Saturday night, but no one came forward.

Sarah McBeath, spokeswoman for Atlantic Lottery, said her records go back three years, and in that time, no $1-million prize has expired.

She said the full amount will be deposited into a fund and used for future contests and bonuses on lottery games.
