It may have been a sleepless night for at least one Lotto Max player in B.C. after a ticket purchased in the Prince George-Mount Robson area beat incredible odds to win the jaw-dropping $13-million jackpot in the March 19, 2021 draw.

The winning B.C. ticket was the only one sold across the province – and across Canada – to match all seven winning numbers: 2, 7, 8, 26, 30, 43, and 48. The odds of winning the Lotto Max jackpot are 1 in 33,294,800.

All lottery prize winners have 52 weeks from the draw date printed on their ticket to come forward to claim their prize. The specific retail location where the winning lottery ticket was purchased, and the lottery winners’ name(s) will be announced after the winner has come forward to claim their prize.

In 2020, B.C. lottery players redeemed more than $99 million in winnings from Lotto Max. Anyone can win and #YouCouldBeNext. Watch some amazing lottery winner stories at
