All the wishing and hoping has paid off, literally, for several lottery players after four winning tickets were produced in Saturday’s colossal 6/49 draw.
Four golden tickets were sold for the $50.3-million jackpot, the second largest in Canadian history.
While the winners have yet to surface, it’s known that three were bought in Ontario and one was purchased in Quebec.
Ontario’s lucky few would have stood in long lines somewhere in Halton and Durham regions and the Sudbury area, said Teresa Roncon, a spokeswoman for the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation.
It’s now up to people to check their tickets and come forward to claim the corresponding $12.6 million for each winning ticket.
Ontario ticket sales for the draw totalled $36 million. Total sales across Canada were $79.5 million.
