Lottery winner wanted

A Saskatchewan resident could be in for a welcome winter surprise — imagine checking a coat pocket to find a lottery ticket worth $1 million inside! That could happen to someone just in time for the holidays, as a LOTTO MAX lottery ticket that won $1 million last December 20 has yet to be claimed.

“It wouldn’t be the first time we’ve heard of a player discovering a ticket they’ve stashed in a coat pocket or purse months before, only to find out it was a winner all along,” said Andrea Marantz, spokesperson for Western Canada Lottery Corporation.

The million-dollar winning selection is 9, 17, 20, 27, 36, 38 and 42. The selection was for one of 50 MAXMILLIONS prizes drawn that night — Friday, December 20, 2013. The lucky ticket was purchased somewhere in Saskatchewan, but not in Regina or Saskatoon. The lucky ticket holder has until Monday, December 22, 2014 to claim the prize, as December 20 falls on a Saturday this year.

“Whenever possible, we like to see prizes claimed,” Marantz said. “We would love to see someone come in with a winning ticket.”

However, should the MAXMILLIONS prize go unclaimed, the prize will be returned to players through guaranteed jackpots and bonus draws as part of the national unclaimed prize fund. Players can check their tickets at any lottery retailer, including on the self-check Ticket Checker.

The owner or owners of the $1 million winning ticket can call WCLC Customer Care at 1-800-665-3313 for information and to make arrangements to claim the prize.
