Someone who bought a lottery ticket in Toronto is waking up a multi-millionaire.
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. says the winning ticket for the record-breaking Lotto 6/49 Gold Ball jackpot worth $68 million was sold somewhere in Toronto.
Encore tickets worth $100,000 each were also sold in Toronto, Sarnia, Windsor and on OLG.ca.
The last highest gold-ball-winning ticket was sold in New Brunswick in April, though that player has yet to claim the $64-million prize, while another $64-million ticket was won by a Mississauga resident in 2015, the last highest ticket sold in Ontario.
The most recent gold ball ticket, worth $42 million, was sold in June to a lucky player in Niagara Falls. It has yet to be claimed.
The winning numbers in Wednesday’s Lotto 649 draw for an estimated $5 million: 09, 17, 25, 30, 38 and 48. Bonus: 35
The winning number for the guaranteed $1 million: 50755138-03
In the event of any discrepancy between this list and the official winning numbers, the latter shall prevail.
