Million Dollar lottery ticket bought in Stratford unclaimed

Were you in Stratford during the week of Nov. 20th, 2013? If you were, start checking your pockets for a lottery ticket.

Someone who bought a Lotto 64/9 ticket is sitting on a million dollar prize and doesn’t know it. Or maybe they’re just planning how to spend the winnings.

Dead — a smile on his face, clutch­ing the win­ning ticket

In a scenario reminiscent of the feature film “Waking Ned Devine,” Stratford is buzzing with speculation.

In the film, when nobody claims the winning ticket, the town goes on a search to find out why. They find the winner, old Ned Devine, dead — a smile on his face, clutching the winning ticket.stratford, lottery, unclaimed, 6, 46. 6/49, ticket

The film is on Netflix, it’s a fun comedy with some excellent acting. While you are on the couch watching it, slide your hand down between the cushions. You never know what treasures you might find down there.

The Winning Number

The lucky ticket, purchased in Stratford, matched the “Guaranteed Prize Draw” number, 48526454-01, to win the million dollar prize.

The “Guaranteed Prize Draw” number is a new feature the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation added to the 6/49 draw in September. Since then, each 6/49 ticket is issued a separate “Guaranteed Prize Draw” number. A ticket’s 6/49 numbers need not match the “Main Draw” prize numbers to win the million guaranteed prize.
