OLG to award Canada's largest lotto payout Wednesday morning
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) will present someone with “Canada’s largest-ever lottery payout” on Wednesday morning.
OLG officials were tight-lipped Tuesday about the presentation — they wouldn’t say how big the jackpot was, which lottery was involved or who will be collecting it.
Up until this week, the largest Lotto Max jackpot ever collected was a $60-million prize that went to a group of 12 from Markham. There are still a few $60-million jackpots that have yet to be claimed.
The largest Lotto 6/49 prize was a $64-million jackpot from last fall. Although there was a winning ticket, no one has stepped forward.
