BCLC reminds players to check Jan. 3 Lotto 6/49 tickets bought in Victoria

As the New Year looms, the countdown is on for the winner of the $1 million 6/49 lottery ticket to claim their prize.

The ticket — with the numbers 18923844-07 — was sold in Victoria on Jan. 3, 2018 and the winner has a full year to receive their winnings. Once the prize has found its way to the rightful owner, their information will be announced by BCLC.
