KELOWNA - There is one winning ticket for the $50 million jackpot in Friday night's Lotto Max draw — and it was sold in Kelowna.
There were also seven MaxMillions up for grabs, and one of the million-dollar prizes was claimed by a ticket purchased in the Prairies.
The winner has 52 weeks from the draw date to come forward and claim the prize, according to a B.C. Lottery Corporation media release. Officials won't say exactly where the ticket was bought until the winner comes forward to claim the prize.
This is the second big lottery win in Kelowna this year. Robert Goertzen won about $22 million in a Lotto 6/49 draw in February.
The grand prize for next Friday's draw will be approximately $16 million.
To check the winning numbers go to the B.C. Lottery Corporation website.
