Two Albertans will split multimillion-dollar lottery prize

Is one of the mystery winners from Red Deer region?

Two Albertans could have a multimillion-dollar surprise waiting with their cup of coffee this morning — is one of them a central Albertan?

Saturday’s $29.8-million Lotto 6/49 jackpot will be split between two tickets.

One of the tickets was purchased in Edmonton, and the other was bought somewhere else in Alberta, but not in Edmonton nor Calgary — which means the winner could possibly be from the Red Deer region.

The winning numbers, worth $14,900,823.50 each, are 10, 19, 24, 30, 35 and 49.

Winners have one year from the draw date to claim the prize. But the Western Canadian Lottery Corp. hopes to hear from them earlier than that.

Winners can contact customer care at 1-800-665-3313 for information on how to start the prize claim.

This year has been a winning year for Alberta. So far, Albertans have taken home 15 prizes of a million dollars or more.
