The August Lotto 6-49 winner has finally been revealed after a painstaking search. With the jackpot already being an astounding $5 million, the victor will be rejoicing in their winnings with hundreds of thousands or maybe millions to spare.
The “6:45” is the time that the August Lotto 6/49 winner was finally revealed. The winning number for the draw on 8th August 2018 was 9, 15, 29, 30 and 31.
The Western Canadian Lottery Corporation and Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries have recently certified that a Manitoba resident has won the Lotto 6/49 jackpot on August 14, 2021. Jeff Morton is the winner, and he had the winning ticket on a shelf at home until scanning it at a merchant this month. He is now worth CA$10,000,0000 as a result of the draw.
Lotto 6/49 is a weekly lottery game played in Canada with two draws every week. Depending on one’s province of residency, tickets may be bought both in stores and online. Aside from the usual cash prizes, the game’s draws always include a guaranteed payment of CA$1 million. The recipient of this prize is chosen at random as well.
He is taking his time.
After collecting his CA$10,000,000 check, Mr. Morton has become the latest Canadian person to join the club of lottery multimillionaires. The winning ticket had been resting on a shelf at the Hamiota resident’s house for a few months, since he generally waits for a few lottery tickets to mount up before scanning them at a nearby store.
He claims that when he initially heard about an unclaimed lottery ticket, he didn’t believe it was him. However, he realized that he is the winner of the large reward after scanning the tickets this month. The winner also said that he first kept his composure, but it struck him when he returned home that he had won CA$10,000,000.
Mr. Morton said he hasn’t come up with many huge ideas for how to spend his large windfall yet, but a few smaller ones have come to mind. His first thoughts are to pay off his house and a few other expenses, but he hasn’t made any huge plans yet. He also says he won’t leave his work, although he does want to retire before he is 65 next year.
Mr. Morton’s winning ticket was a Free Play Ticket that he had won in the previous draw, and it gave him a sizable profit. The winner picked up his check for CA$10,000,000 at the Hamiota Super Thrifty Drug Mart. His ticket shared the CA$20,000,000 prize on August 14 with another ticket holder from Ontario.
Manitobans continue to win big.
Mr. Morton’s lotto victory is the latest in a string of significant lottery wins for Manitobans in recent months. Louis Montroy of Brandon has received his CA$5 million reward, which was also won in a Lotto 6/49 game in December. Mr. Montroy will be the jackpot winner on November 24th, based on the numbers 10, 11, 18, 20, 35, and 48.
Jerry Knott of Wasagamack had previously won a lottery jackpot, but this time it was from Lotto Max. Mr. Knott said that he had bought a ticket for the game but had forgotten about it in his pocket. Then, when in Winnipeg for his daughter’s wedding, he learned he’d won a whopping CA$20,000,000. The winner collected his reward on October 14 of this year.
