After the Lotto 6/49 gold ball wasn’t drawn on Saturday, the upcoming game guarantees a historic jackpot of $68 million will be claimed by a fortunate winner.
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) reported some winnings from the Saturday draw in Ontario. A ticket sold in Simcoe County secured a $5 million prize in the Classic Draw, while another ticket from Niagara Falls landed a $1 million prize with the Gold Ball. Furthermore, a $1 million-winning ticket was purchased on OLG.ca through Encore.
With the gold ball remaining unselected, the next Lotto 6/49 drawing will boast the game’s largest-ever jackpot, and it’s guaranteed that someone will walk away with the prize.
It’s worth noting that the Lotto 6/49 format underwent changes in September 2022, fixing the jackpot for the primary “Classic Draw” at $5 million, where players can either choose their numbers or opt for a quick pick.
These are the winning numbers for the Saturday, Sept. 23 draw, according to the OLG website:
Classic Draw ($5 million): 5 18 22 26 28 45 Bonus 14
Gold Ball ($1 million guaranteed prize): 44965391-01
