KAMLOOPS – One of the 32 Maxmillions prizes of $1 million each up for grabs in last night’s Lotto Max draw was sold in Vernon.

The B.C. Lottery Corporation says 16 of the 32 prizes were claimed by a total of 21 winning tickets — which means some will be shared.

A ticket sold in Vernon won one of those Maxmillions prizes. The lottery corporation hasn’t said exactly where the ticket was sold.

As well, someone in Kelowna has a lottery ticket worth $219,000 after matching six of seven numbers on the Lotto Max draw.

The winning ticket for the enormous $60 million Lotto Max jackpot was sold in Quebec.

To check the winning numbers go to the B.C. Lottery Corporation website here.

The jackpot for the next Lotto Max draw on Dec. 29 will be approximately $26 million.
