TORONTO — No winning ticket was sold for the whopping $60 million jackpot in Friday night’s Lotto Max draw.

There were also six Maxmillions prizes of $1 million each up for grabs, and one of them was claimed by a ticket holder in Quebec.

The jackpot for the next Lotto Max draw on Oct. 6 will grow to approximately $65 million, and the draw will also include a shot at 8 Maxmillions prizes.

Ten months after hitting the jackpot, the winner of a $60-million Lotto Max draw has finally come forward.

Bon Truong bought the sole winning ticket for the Friday, Oct. 26 draw. He said he checked the ticket the day after the draw and has kept his winnings quiet ever since.

“I went to the store and asked the clerk to print off the winning numbers — just to be sure,” Truong said.

“I took the printout home and stared at the numbers and my ticket for hours that day. I could not believe it!”

Truong said he realized what this money would mean for his family and wanted to make sure they were all ready for those changes.

The winning numbers for the draw were: 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 20, 30 and bonus 45. Truong moved to Canada from Vietnam three decades ago and said he’s been playing these same numbers ever since.

Truong has three young children and he said he’s trying to keep his new found fortune a secret from them so they continue working hard. He said he will use the money for bills, a new home and saving for the future.

“After those big, main things, I’d like to take my family on a holiday,” he said. “I’m not sure where just yet. I think we’ll try to go everywhere.”

He also plans to keep his job as a landscaper and continue playing the lottery.

“I’m still young, I’m still strong. But right now with the money coming, I will take a lot of time, take care of my family and still work after I’m done this. After everything is done, I will go back to work,” he said Wednesday.

“This time Lotto Max, next time 6/49.”

Truong bought the winning ticket at Pure Casino Yellowhead, in the area of 124 Avenue and 153 Street.

His winning ticket is tied as the largest-ever Lotto Max win in Edmonton’s history. In September 2017, Robin Walker and Brett McCoy, of Peers, Alta., also won a $60-million prize.

The rules state that lottery winners have one year from the draw date to come forward and claim their prize.
