Time is running out for the rightful owner of a $100,000 winning lottery ticket, sold in Mississauga, to claim their prize.

There are two weeks left to claim a $100,000 Encore prize from the Wednesday, Sept. 21 LOTTO 6/49 draw, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission (OLG) said in a press release today (Sept. 8).

The winning numbers were 4-9-4-7-7-8-1 and the winning ticket was sold in Mississauga, OLG said.

Players must match the last six of the seven Encore numbers in exact order to win the $100,000 prize.

This amount is much less than the $70 million ticket, which went unclaimed this year, but it is still a good-sized win.

Players have one year from the draw date to claim their prize, said OLG.

An even bigger prize, a $1 million Lotto Max winning ticket purchased in Mississauga from the Oct. 14, 2022 draw, is unclaimed, according to the OLG Unclaimed Tickets page.

There is also a $74,651.40 winning prize for the April 21 Lotto Max draw ticket purchased in Mississauga on the Unclaimed Tickets page.

OLG makes sure the right prizes are paid to the right people every time, and there is a prize-claim verification process.

Anyone who believes they bought the winning ticket, or lost it, must provide specific details on where and when the ticket was purchased.

There are several ways to check lottery tickets:

  • Scan your ticket using the OLG App.
  • Check winning numbers on OLG.ca or sign up to have the winning numbers emailed to you.
  • Call the OLG WIN! Line at 1-866-891-8946.
  • Visit a lottery retail location and use the self-serve ticket checker or hand it to the retailer.

So that you don’t forget to claim your lottery prize, OLG asks lottery players to:

  • Sign their ticket right after it’s purchased.
  • Keep the ticket in a safe and memorable location until draw time.
  • Check the ticket as soon as the draw is complete; or
  • Never lose a ticket when making your lottery purchase on OLG.ca – and receive email notification if your ticket has won a prize.

Information about unclaimed tickets can be found on the OLG.ca Unclaimed Tickets page.
