A lucky BC resident is about to get much, much richer.
According to the BC Lottery Corporation, a ticket holder in Parksville matched all six numbers in Saturday's Lotto 6/49 draw. They will split the $6 million with a Newfoundland resident who picked the same digits.
Those lucky numbers were 13, 15, 17, 25, 34 and 45. The lucky winner will have one year to claim their winnings.
So far in 2021, BC lottery players have redeemed more than $44 million in prizes.
Where the ticket was purchased and the winner's name will be announced when they claim their prize.
