Check your ticket – you may be Ontario’s newest multimillionaire.
Friday night’s $30.3-million Lotto Max jackpot was won by one ticket purchased somewhere in Toronto, according to lottery officials.
As of early Saturday afternoon, no one has stepped forward to claim the prize, said OLG spokesman Tony Bitonti.
Bitonti said the earliest the winning ticket can be validated is Tuesday, when the OLG's offices reopen after the long weekend.
In addition to the $30-million winner, a winning Encore ticket worth $1 million was purchased in Brampton.
Last month, a family of six from Peterborough won $50 million in a Lotto Max draw.
Next Friday’s jackpot is an estimated $10 million.
The odds of matching all seven numbers are one in 28 million.
