Just days after a $1 million winning ticket was sold in Calgary, a second LOTTO 6/49 ticket picked up in Alberta has minted a new millionaire.

According to the  Western Canada Lottery Corporation, the ticket, which was purchased somewhere in the province outside of Edmonton and Calgary.

"[It] exactly matched the winning number in Wednesday’s Gold Ball draw (29731883-01), netting the holder – or holders –a cool $1 million windfall.

There are also several unclaimed lottery prizes and two of those winning tickets were sold somewhere in Alberta and outside of the major cities - maybe even in Airdrie!

One of the winning tickets was drawn on April 1, 2022 (an EXTRA lottery ticket) with the numbers drawn: 2892046, whose prize value is $100,000, while the other was a LOTTO 6/49 Super Draw, whose prize totals $25,000, with the number drawn: 36461637-02, was drawn on May 7, 2022.

Time is running out to claim those prizes, as the tickets expire one year from the draw date.
