Christmas Lottery News in Brief

Now is the best time to win a big lottery prize. Who knows you could find a missing ticket or receive a ticket as a present?

Amazing discovery

Every year we have the task of sorting out the Christmas decorations. Mathieu Labrie from Montreal in Canada did just that and found an old lottery ticket. He checked it to see if it had won anything and was shocked to discover it’d won $50,000.

21 lucky players will share the pre-Christmas windfall. The generous supervisor is happy too as her share will be used to finish off her Christmas shopping.  An English syndicate recently won a £1m EuroMillions prize.
