Someone who purchased a Lotto 6/49 ticket in Burnaby for Saturday’s draw is $5 million richer.

The single winning ticket matched all six Lotto 6/49 numbers from the February 22, 2020 draw to win the incredible jackpot.  

It was a remarkable night for B.C. lottery players as someone who purchased a ticket in Vancouver also won the second top prize worth more than $220,000 after matching five out of six Lotto 6/49 numbers plus the bonus number.
