The individual who purchased the winning $50 million Lotto Max ticket in Langley, British Columbia, on March 14, 2014 has come forward.

This comes after the British Columbia Lotto Corporation's renewed plea this week for the winner to claim their prize. As per lottery regulations, the one-year deadline to claim the prize is this Saturday.

The winning numbers for that particular draw were 3, 4, 5, 7, 31, 33, and 40 with bonus number 49.

Lotto Max is a multi-province game offered throughout Canada.  It features a rolling jackpot that is capped once it reaches $50 million.

With more than 11 months elapsed since the numbers were drawn, there was rampant speculation over what has happened to the winner, with some wondering the winner has died or the ticket was purchased by a minor.

The unclaimed prize even sparked a lawsuit amongst a group of Shoppers Drug Mart employees alleging one of their co-workers was hiding the winning ticket purchased with workplace pool funds.

The B.C. Lottery Corp. says it's confirmed the ticket is genuine and that officials will now proceed with a verification process to determine the rightful ticketholder.  The lottery has not revealed the identity of the individual who came forward with the winning ticket.

The winning ticket was purchased in Langley.

La berdad es que me da mucho gusto y ala bes mucha alegría por las personas que an ganado y los felicito

    Congratulation to the winner. I hope this person has never been a employee of Shoppers Drug Mart.
