In addition, the OLG informed of an expiring to cash out a CA$10,000 Lotto Max ticket.

The player has until August 4 to contact the corporation and receive their prize of CA$10,000.
The last Lotto Max jackpot winner’s name was revealed by the OLG last week. The former military Jansen Ng from East Gwillimbury is now a lotto multi-millionaire as he claimed his CA$65 million cheque. The winner intends to buy himself a new electric car and has big plans to help charity organizations and fellow military members like himself.

Prior to Mr. Ng’s winning the Lotto Max jackpot amounted to CA$70 million and it took a couple of weeks before some finally claimed it.
The jackpot was split between two people who bought tickets. Gary Hill from Kamloops, B.C., was the first, and the other is still unknown, though his location is somewhere in Ontario. Both winners will receive the hefty amount of CA$35 million each.
