One Ontario resident is about to become a
little bit HELL of a lot richer.
The single winning Lotto Max ticket for a whopping $70 million jackpot was sold just outside of Toronto in Brampton, the OLG announced Wednesday morning.
If the lucky ticket holder comes forward to claim their prize, this will mark the biggest lottery prize ever awarded in Canadian.
And considering the average price of a home in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is now close to $1 million, winning this jackpot means someone may finally be able to afford a house (or block of houses) in the region.
So, if a million-dollar home is suddenly in your price range, you could consider checking out this stunning $1.59 million penthouse in downtown Toronto, or, if you’re looking to get North of Bloor, there’s always this beautiful $1.18 million home in Summerhill.
Of course, with seventy million in your account, you could always consider this spacious $4.49 million home in Deer Park.
