Ontario ticket buyer wins $50M Lotto Max prize

What better way to start the holiday season?

After going unclaimed for several weeks, a single winning ticket for Friday night's $50-million Lotto Max jackpot was purchased somewhere in Ontario.

There were also 15 MaxMillions prizes of a million dollars each up for grabs, and four of them were claimed by ticket holders in Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, and St. John’s, Newfoundland.
