Mid-week winners: Two Canadian lottery players just became overnight millionaires

Check your lottery ticket! There were lots of major wins from Wednesday night’s Lotto 6/49 draw.

While no one matched the winning lottery numbers for the $36 million Gold Ball jackpot, two Canadians still came out as new millionaires.

One lucky player from Atlantic Canada matched all of the numbers (86102949-01) to win the White Ball prize of $1 million.

And that’s not all.

Someone from Quebec hit the Lotto 6/49 Classic Draw jackpot, matching all six winning numbers, minus the bonus (10, 16, 18, 22, 39, 46, and bonus number 19). They’re ending the week $5 million richer.

Another lottery player from Quebec and one from Surrey, BC, are splitting the Classic Draw second prize of $117,778.80, matching five out of six winning numbers, including the bonus.

The good fortune seemed to stop short of awarding a lottery player the Classic Draw Extra Prize jackpot of $500,000. However, 55 Canadians did match three out of four winning numbers (2, 29, 91, 92) to win $1,000.

After they matched six of the seven winning numbers and the bonus number, four lucky Canadians will split the second prize, each walking away with $39,126.00.

For the Encore prize, someone in Ontario will be $1 million richer after matching the winning number 1107082. Lotto Max Extra winning numbers were 3, 31, 32, and 89, but no one won the $500,000 prize.

The next Lotto 6/49 draw is on Saturday, April 27 with a Gold Ball jackpot of $38 million.
