If you purchased a Western 6/49 ticket in Winnipeg this week for Wednesday night's draw you could be Manitoba's newest millionaire.

The ticket matching all 6 numbers in this Wednesday's draw is still unclaimed.

The Western Canada Lottery Corporation confirms the winning ticket worth 2 million dollars was sold somewhere in Winnipeg.

WCLC communications manager Kevin Van Egdom says the outlet where the ticket was sold will not yet be revealed.

"We use that information to help verify winning tickets and identify ticket purchasers," said Van Egdom.

The winner or winners of the prize have a year from the draw date to claim the prize.

While Manitoba has yet to record a significant jackpot not being claimed, there have been large amounts in other parts of Canada go unclaimed.

"Usually these big ones do not go unclaimed but the biggest one we've ever seen unclaimed was about 14 million dollars unfortunately that was a ticket sold in Alberta in 2007," Van Egdom said. 

The six winning numbers for Wednesday night's Western 6/49 grand prize are: 5, 17, 29, 35, 39 and 45.

A prize claim can be opened by calling the WCLC at 1-800-665-3313.
