Canada 6/49

A Mississauga, Ontario, woman has won what is being called the largest jackpot ever in the history of Canadian lottery.

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. says Zhe Wang held the single winning ticket for its $64 million jackpot.

According to the OLG, she has chosen not to share any details of the win or what she plans to do with the money.

The OLG says the ticket was from the Oct. 17 Lotto 6/49 draw and was bought at a Petro Canada in Mississauga. The winning numbers from that drawing were 4, 5, 6, 22, 29, and 30, with Bonus number 20.

Wang's win puts her on top of the list of Canada's largest lottery prize winners who won with a single ticket.

Previously, the largest Lotto 649 jackpot ever offered was $63.4 million for the April 13, 2013 draw. That jackpot was shared between four winning tickets — three sold in British Columbia and one sold in Western Canada.
