DELTA (NEWS 1130) – The lucky winner of the $ 5,000 Lotto Max worth $ 39.5 million still needs to claim its price.
V. Lottery Corp says no one has come forward to collect their winnings.
"No one came forward to pick up that money," says Evan Kelly with BCLC.
The winning card, purchased in southern Delta, was the only one that managed to compare all seven numbers from across Canada.

He says there is a two-day process that approves the victory of that magnitude, but adds that after the winner will go out, organize a celebration and invite everyone to meet the winner.
All lottery winners have 52 weeks from the draw date printed at their ticket to sign up for their prize. Jackpot or Maxmillion prizes for Lotto Max are one at 28,633,528 per game.
"It's obvious that kicking a jackpot is seldom, you know there were four or five jackpots here at B.C. 2018," adds Kelly.
He says that although some people think that the larger area, like Toronto, the more winners you see, he says that's not true.
