Written By Katarina Vojvodic on September 23, 2021

If you bought your LOTTO 6/49 ticket for Tuesday’s draw on OLG.ca, now is the perfect time to take a closer look at your account. Or contact OLG directly.

You might just be CA$21 million richer.

Tickets can be checked online at OLG.ca or by phone at 416-870-8946 (Toronto WIN line) or toll-free at 1-866-891-8946 (outside the Toronto area).

Time to check your OLG.ca accounts

The jackpot-winning ticket worth $21,185,218.10 drawn yesterday (Wednesday, Sept. 22) was sold online on the company’s website.

From the same draw, a second ticket sold in Scarborough is worth $127,249.20. So, if you bought a LOTTO 6/49 ticket in Scarborough this week, you might want to check your pockets, too.

The OLG doesn’t usually announce the location of a winning purchase for security reasons. The winners are, however, required by law to identify themselves and have their names revealed publicly.

For prize claims that require a face-to-face interview, OLG is currently booking in-person appointments at their Prize Centre in Toronto.

It only takes $3

If you’re regretting not buying the LOTTO 6/49 ticket like many right now, don’t worry, there’s always a second chance.

That said, the next draw is approaching fast. On Saturday (Sept. 25), OLG draws for an estimated $5 million jackpot plus a guaranteed $1 million prize.

LOTTO 6/49 costs $3 per play. Draws run twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Tickets can be purchased at your authorized OLG retailer or online at OLG.ca before 10:30 pm for the draw that evening.

$13.4 billion since ’82

Since 1982, LOTTO 6/49 players in Ontario have won over $13.4 billion in prizes. That number includes 1,409 jackpot wins and 385 guaranteed $1M prize draws.
