Someone is $24 million richer!

SOMEONE who purchased a ticket in Aldergrove for the Lotto 6/49 draw on May 27, 2020 is waking up considerably richer after winning the jaw-dropping, $24-million jackpot.

The ticket was the only one in Canada to match all six numbers — 7, 17, 18, 22, 28 and 34. 

B.C.’s previous Lotto 6/49 jackpot winner was Tibor Tusnady, who won $16 million in the April 15, 2020 draw. Tusnady claimed his life-changing prize through BCLC’s alternate prize-claim process.

BCLC will announce the specific retail location in Aldergrove that sold the $24 million winning ticket, once the winner comes forward to claim the prize.

All lottery winners have 52 weeks from the draw date printed on their ticket to come forward to claim their prize.
