Okay, maybe "I" didn’t win, but somebody in Ontario is laughing their head off. News outlets are reporting that the ticket for the big one was sold in Ontario. Sure enough, a visit to the Lotto Max web site proves we have a winner although I have no idea where the other news outlets know that winning ticket is in Ontario. Am I missing something on the site?
Oh yeah, 2 Maxmillions were also won and once again, Ontario is the lucky recipient. Time to get out those tickets and verify the numbers! Maybe I don’t have to go to work on Monday. Of course, what am I going to do for the rest of the weekend? How will I contain myself? I better keep quiet about it. Heck, I’m going to end up with every Tom, Dick and Harry, even my wife’s thirty-second cousins twice removed phoning me for a hand-out. Ha!
According to Lotto Max, with the fifty million having been won, the big pot comes back down so next week, Feb 4, it will stand at $21 million. However, since only two out of thirteen Maxmillions were won, they are going back up for grabs next week. The OLG is showing 14 Maxmillions for Feb 4.
But the weekend is not over. Wednesday’s 6/49 didn’t have a winner so Saturday’s pot has grown to six million. There’s still a chance. Hey! I can dream, can’t I?
Lotto Max: Fri Jan 28/11: $50 million plus 13 Maxmillions
6/49: Sat Jan 29: $6 million
