Kamloops ticket buyer will split $70 million in Lotto Max win

The jackpot and $250,000 win follow two other recent lotto wins in Kamloops, with two people who purchased tickets here winning $1 million and $500,000 in last Friday's draw. But no one claimed the big prize that day. Winners have 52 weeks from the draw date to claim their prize.

The winning numbers were 7, 11, 22, 28, 33, 44, 49 with a bonus of 10. The Extra numbers were 1, 7, 23 and 41.

Whoever sold the ticket will also win. BCLC says sellers of winning tickets between $2 million and $70 million will receive 0.1 per cent of the pot — or in this case, $35,000.

The next Lotto Max jackpot is estimated at $50 million.
