Prince Edward Island resident wins $8.6 million in lottery


One lucky person won over $8.6 million in a recent Lotto 6/49 draw.

Atlantic Lottery’s Greg Watson says the winning ticket was sold online to a buyer whose residence is Prince Edward Island.

“We cannot confirm the win or identify the winner until the ticket holder has gone through our confirmation process,” Watson said in an email to CTV News.

“But we can’t wait to meet whoever bought the winning ticket.”

As the ticket was purchased on the web, Weston says the winner will be notified of the win by email with further instructions on how to claim their prize through Atlantic Lottery’s “Winners Team”. .

“It’s always an exciting day for everyone at Atlantic Lottery when the winners show up, especially when they claim a big prize like this.

He says the biggest winner in the Maritimes in recent years was a Cape Bretoner who won $17.4 million in 2020, also in the Lotto 6/49 draw.

Last December in PEI, Nancy Adams became the second Islander to win $3 million on a Scratch & Win One ticket in one month.

In November, Charlottetown’s Susan Behi and Mehdi Shahsavari won $3 million as the top prize on a Triple Million ticket.
