Someone on Vancouver Island became $5 million richer overnight.
The BC Lottery Corporation (BCLC) says a single Lotto 6/49 ticket purchased in Port Alberni matched all six numbers of the jackpot for last night’s draw – Saturday, February 10, 2019.
These are the winning numbers: 1, 24, 35, 41, 42, and 49. The bonus number was 18.
BCLC is asking for the winner to come forward and is reminding that winners of any lottery prize – big or small – have one year from the draw date printed on the ticket to claim their prize.
The odds of winning a Lotto 6/49 jackpot are 1 in 13,983,816.
“With much of the province blanketed in snow and feeling icy cold temperatures this weekend, perhaps a tropical holiday is on the agenda for a lucky ticket holder,” said BCLC in a release.
