TORONTO — The final Canada Super 7 jackpot, totalling almost $24 million, was won Friday night by a single ticket in Saskatchewan.
Lottery hopefuls across Canada were especially interested in the final draw because all the prize money was guaranteed to be won.
A lottery spokeswoman says officials have not yet heard from the winner or winners, adding all they know is the ticket was purchased somewhere in Saskatchewan.
The winner has a year to claim the prize, but can do so as early as Monday morning.
High sales on the draw meant that the jackpot, originally estimated at $21 million, actually netted out nearly $24 million, a new record lottery win for Saskatchewan tickets.
The popular Super 7 lottery was retired after Friday night's final draw and tickets for Lotto Max, Canada's newest lottery game, went on sale Saturday morning.
Super 7 was started more than 15 years ago, with the first drawing on June 10, 1994. All of the game's winning numbers are available at Lottery Post's Super 7 Lottery Results page (www.lotterypost.com/game/229/results).
