Review after $30M winning Lotto Max ticket sold
The Atlantic Lottery Corporation has confirmed that a couple has come forward to claim a $30 million lottery prize won over the weekend in Newfoundland and Labrador, but they will have to wait to get the money.
Review after $30M winning Lotto Max ticket sold. In an advisory issued on Saturday morning, the corporation said there were two winning tickets for Friday night’s Lotto Max draw.
The $60-million jackpot will be evenly split between a winning ticket in Edmonton and another sold in Conception Bay South.
On Monday, the Lottery Corporation said it may be 30 days before the Newfoundland winner is confirmed.
Spokesperson, Tracey Shute said that’s because the ticket holder is what’s called a “related party.”
That means they are either a retailer, an employee who sells lottery tickets, or a family member of someone who does.
Shute said the winner is not an employee at the Atlantic Lottery Corporation.
She said there should be more information before Christmas.
It was just a few days ago that Alana Langdon of C.B.S. won more than $700,000 in last week’s Lotto Max draw.
Atlantic Lottery says details on Friday’s prize winner will be released as soon as they come forward to collect their prize.
