Lotto 6/49 ticket sold in BC wins $5M jackpot

One British Columbian could be in store for one heck of a Christmas after purchasing a winning Lotto 6/49 ticket.

A Lotto 6/49 ticket for last night’s draw was purchased in Richmond.

It was the only one in Canada with the winning numbers of four, 18, 26, 36, 41 and 42.

That lucky ticket holder is $5 million richer.
