There are two unclaimed lottery prizes that could mean big winnings for people located outside of Calgary and Edmonton.
According to the Western Canadian Lottery Corporation (WCLC) there are two winning unclaimed prizes.
A LOTTO 6/49 Gold Ball ticket that was drawn on November 12, 2022, somewhere in Alberta (excluding Calgary and Edmonton) is worth $1,000,000. The lucky numbers drawn were: 27626701-01
While a more recent LOTTO 6/49 Gold Ball ticket, drawn on March 8, 2023, also somewhere in Alberta - and not in Calgary or Edmonton, is also worth $1,000,000. The numbers on that ticket are 29731883-01.
"Unclaimed prizes on national games are returned to players through guaranteed Jackpots and Bonus draws. Unclaimed prizes on regional games are returned to the member provinces and territories as revenue," the WCLC stated on their website. "All lottery tickets have specific expiry dates and no prizes can be paid after that time.”
Most tickets expires a year from their draw date while Sport select ticket holders have one year from the date the last selected game was played.
