Millionaire mystery: $15-million winning B.C. lottery ticket remains unclaimed.

Someone in B.C. could be the provinceís newest millionaire if they ever decide to check an old lottery ticket.

This week, the†B.C. Lottery Corporation†(BCLC) said time is quickly running out on a†winning lottery ticket†thatís worth $15 million.

The†Lotto Max†ticket was drawn last August, and someone in†Vancouver†lucked out in picking the right numbers. However, the ticketís expiry date is midnight on Aug. 13, 2022.

The lottery corporation says people should check everywhere for that ticket, including beach bags, suitcases and glove boxes.

BCLC says all lottery prize winners have 52 weeks from the draw date printed on their ticket to come forward to claim their prize.

To date, BCLC says B.C. lottery players have redeemed more than $64 million from Lotto Max this year.
