Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. says a $70 million Lotto Max ticket that had gone unclaimed for a year has not been physically validated and is now expired.
The ticket, drawn on June 28, 2022, was purchased at a lottery retailer in Scarborough. Players have one year to claim their prize.
As the deadline of 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 28 passed, a physical $70 million winning ticket was not validated at an OLG terminal, the company said in a news release on Thursday morning.
If an attempt is made to validate the lottery ticket past the one-year expiry date, the OLG said the lottery terminal message to the customer will advise that the ticket has expired.
