Bulkley Valley-Stikine ticket holder has share of 50 million dollar jackpot
Friday Night's Lotto Max Jackpot has been split between a ticket purchaser in the Northwest and a ticket holder in either Alberta, Saskatchewan or Manitoba.
The 25 million dollar winfall was the main prize of the weekly Lotto Max draw, a drawing for which ticket sales had mushroomed as the jackpot grew larger and larger over the last few weeks.
It marks the second time in the last year that a major Lotto Max prize will have been claimed by someone in the Bulkley Valley-Stikine region, with an Atlin resident winning the lottery back in February.
In addition to the giant jackpot there are a number of subsidiary prizes to be claimed, one of which will bring a 1 million dollar winfall to a Kitimat resident.
Should you have held a ticket on Friday's draw and of course, providing you aren't the big jackpot winner already making your travel plans, the remainder of the numbers can be found here.
