Ontario woman claims record $64M Canadian lottery jackpot

Canada 6/49Canada 6/49: Ontario woman claims record $64M Canadian lottery jackpot

Rating:

TORONTO — A Mississauga, Ontario, woman has won what is being called the largest jackpot ever in the history of Canadian lottery.

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. says Zhe Wang held the single winning ticket for its $64 million jackpot.

According to the OLG, she has chosen not to share any details of the win or what she plans to do with the money.

The OLG says the ticket was from the Oct. 17 Lotto 6/49 draw and was bought at a Petro Canada in Mississauga. The winning numbers from that drawing were 4, 5, 6, 22, 29, and 30, with Bonus number 20.

Wang's win puts her on top of the list of Canada's largest lottery prize winners who won with a single ticket.

Previously, the largest Lotto 649 jackpot ever offered was $63.4 million for the April 13, 2013 draw. That jackpot was shared between four winning tickets — three sold in British Columbia and one sold in Western Canada.

          Yeah that's never gonna happen in America lol.

          Lotteries are a cash cow where the real winner is the government in America.  If Bernie gets elected all lottery winners will be taxed at a rate of 99.9%.

                           As we all know here, if the winner decides to take the whole jackpot, the Feds take 50% of the winnings and then tax the rest. Is there a tax on the Canadian lottery? I thought that the maximum a person could win in Canada was $50 million.

                            One Of The Lotteries(LottoMax--7/49 Is Capped At $50 Million)

                            But Say The Jackpot Reaches $75 Million,Then There Will Be 25 Bonus Draws Of $1 Million Each.

                            Lotto 6/49 Has No Limit

                            And It's All Tax-Free
