BCLC says $15M lottery ticket set to expire
If you purchased a Lotto Max ticket in Vancouver last August -- and haven't checked all your tickets -- you're being advised to do so. BCLC says there is an unclaimed $15 million lottery ticket that is set to expire at midnight on August 13th of this year. – Jul 6, 2022

Someone in B.C. could be the province’s newest millionaire — if they ever decide to check an old lottery ticket.

This week, the B.C. Lottery Corporation (BCLC) said time is quickly running out on a winning lottery ticket that’s worth $15 million.

The Lotto Max ticket was drawn last August, and someone in Vancouver lucked out in picking the right numbers. However, the ticket’s expiry date is midnight on Aug. 13, 2022.
