Big time.

The single ticket matched all seven numbers in the Lotto Max draw in the July 26 draw to win the $60 million prize, the biggest in B.C. lottery history.

The winner still has to come forward and claim their prize. They have 52 weeks from the draw date to do so. Afterwards, the B.C. Lottery Corporation will announce the specific retail location in Richmond that sold the huge prize.

The previous largest prizes ever won in B.C. are three $50 million Lotto Max jackpots in October 2010, March 2014 and in April 2016.

British Columbians have claimed over $108 million in Lotto Max prizes so far in 2019, including a $25.9 million prize won in Merritt in February.

The main Lotto Max jackpot can now grow as high as $70 million, with the odds of winning the main prize being one in 33,294, 800 per $5 play.
