It appears one lucky Winnipegger is very, very wealthy after winning a huge lottery jackpot this weekend.

The winning ticket for Saturday’s $17-million Lotto 6/49 Jackpot was bought in Winnipeg, the Western Canada Lottery Corporation said on its website.

The exact prize is $17,026,623.50. The winning numbers were 2 10 16 21 24 49.

It wasn’t known over the weekend whether anyone had stepped forward to claim the prize, as WCLC representatives could not be reached Sunday.

The lottery win would appear to be the fourth-largest in Manitoba history. In November 2009, Kirby and Marie Fontaine of Sagkeeng First Nation won $50 million as the first-ever winners of Lotto Max, a national game that replaced the Super 7 and had its inaugural draw on Sept. 25, 2009. The massive jackpot nearly doubled the previous largest lotto win in Manitoba, a $27.2 million 6/49 payout in November 2005.
