Time running out for LOTTO 6/49 prize winner
Might want to have a look in your wallet, the pockets of a jacket you haven’t worn since last year or the junk drawer. It could be worth your while. Ontario Lottery and Gaming says a winning LOTTO 6/49 ticket worth $1M was sold in Toronto last March, but the jackpot has yet to be claimed. And there’s only a few more weeks to go before that jackpot is forfeited. The winning selection for the Wednesday March 2, 2016 Guaranteed Prize Draw was 5 – 5 – 3 – 0 – 8 – 1 – 3 – 9 – 06. Players must exactly match that selection to win. From the OLG: Anyone possessing this ticket should fill in the back portion, sign it and contact the OLG Prize Centre at 20 Dundas Street West in Toronto before 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 2, 2017. The OLG Prize Centre is now open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., unless Saturday is a statutory holiday or if there is a statutory holiday on the preceding Friday or the following Monday. For full details on Prize Centre hours and services, please visit the How to Claim Prizes page on olg.ca. Winners of up to $250,000 also have the convenience of dropping off winning tickets for processing at any OLG Casino or at several of OLG Slots at Racetrack facilities. Winning tickets of less than $999.99 can be cashed at these sites. Please call 1-800-387-0098 for more details or for a list of locations.
